‘Blue Bloods’ Stars Donnie Wahlberg & Bridget Moynahan “Upset And Sad” That Series Is Ending: “We’ve Created Such A Family On Set”

Blue Bloods stars Donnie Wahlberg and Bridget Moynahan are saying a sad farewell to the CBS drama series. In an appearance Tuesday on The Drew Barrymore Show, Wahlberg and Moynahan shared a clip from the 14th and final season, which is currently airing, that features the Reagans at their weekly Sunday dinner.

Barrymore asked the two how they’re feeling as the end approaches. “I think everybody’s really upset and sad, but also happy and satiated?,” she questioned.

“More upset and sad,” Wahlberg said.

Responding to co-host Ross Mathews when asked what it feels like saying goodbye to the characters, Moynahan explained, “I think it’s more saying goodbye to the people behind the characters. We’ve created such a family on set with each other and the crew — most of the crew’s been with us for 14 years, so we’ve been through a lot of weddings, births, deaths, and everything. We’ve been through it all with each other.”

Deadline broke the news in November that Blue Bloods would be ending with a 18-episode Season 14 split into two parts, 10 episodes this spring and 8 in the fall.

Multiple cast members, including star/executive producer Tom Selleck, have reportedly lobbied CBS about extending the show’s run beyond that.

“They say it’s an eight-episode wind-down, and I say, ‘We’ll see,'” Selleck told USA Today. “Look, I’ll do whatever is best for the whole situation. But I love this show, obviously. And I think CBS is going to end up being very conflicted with their present plans.”

According to sources, CBS is sticking to the 8-episode final installment, which is being written as a closing chapter for the venerable drama.

Produced by CBS Studios, Blue Bloods stars Selleck, Wahlberg, Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Marisa Ramirez and Vanessa Ray/ Wade executive produces with Siobhan Byrne-O’Connor, Ian Biederman and Dan Truly.
