Donnie Walhberg, who stars in CBS’ “Blue Bloods,” teased on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show Tuesday that this current 14th season of the ensemble police procedural may not be the last, although he admitted he was speculating.

When the “Andy Cohen Live” host asked whether “Blue Bloods” is “in its final season now,” Wahlberg, 54, replied, “Potentially. Allegedly. But there are rumblings, so we'll see what happens,” adding of the show, “It’s beloved.”

Jordan Knight, 53, Wahlberg’s bandmate in New Kids on the Block, who appeared on Cohen’s show with Wahlberg and other members of the group to promote an upcoming reunion album, joked, “It's going to be a Donnie spinoff.”

Wahlberg plays NYPD Det. Danny Reagan, eldest son of second-generation Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck), the patriarch of a family of cops and an assistant district attorney.

The actor-singer went on to say that, what with Knight having appeared on “Blue Bloods” — uncredited, as Man in Police Station in the 2011 episode “Model Behavior” — Wahlberg wanted to have fellow bandmate Joey McIntyre on the show.

“Listen, I've been trying,” Wahlberg told Cohen. “It's a no-brainer for Joey to do it and I'm sure he'd be willing if there was a good part, but it just hasn't been the right thing. But our executive producer said, ‘If this is the last year, is there a bucket-list item you want?’ I said, ‘Yes. Get … Joey on the show because you told me you were going to get him on the show a decade ago and we're still waiting.’ So we'll see.”

Chimed in McIntyre, 51, “I don't know. If he has to take my face and put it up against a car window or something like that” then it might not be something in which he would be interested. “You know what I mean? We’ve got to have some soft boundaries around the role.”

“Well,” Wahlberg told McIntyre, “you know, the storyline could be, like, you come and are a love interest to my [detective] partner (Maria Baez, played by Marisa Ramirez) and I get jealous or whatever.”

A CBS representative did not respond to Newsday queries about a possible additional season or spinoff, or a McIntyre guest appearance.

The series premiered its 14th season on Feb. 16. After being delayed by the actors and writers strikes, the season will air in two parts, with the second half premiering in the fall. By the end of its run, the show, a favorite on Long Island, will have aired 293 episodes.
