Donnie talks about season 2 of Blue Bloods

Donnie talks about the second season of Blue Bloods in an article from Entertainment Weekly:

The season premiere kicks off with a bang. Upon returning, one member of the family will find themselves with a close connection to a high-profile murder and another member will hand in a letter of resignation! But not to worry, Donnie Wahlberg fans; it’s definitely not Danny. In fact, at the premiere of Zookeeper last night, the actor — and currently touring New Kid on the Block — told us he’s working hard to make sure he can finish out his work with the NKOTBSB tour and make it to work every day on set. “I will be chartering back-and-forth from the tour to the set of Blue Bloods. We still have a ton of dates after I have to go back to work on Blue Bloods. Tom Selleck has loaned me the use of his plane. It’s great to be busy, honestly. It has been really great to be able to film a movie, do the tour, do the show, and everyone has been more than accommodating. The best part is that everyone from Blue Bloods has come to see the NKOTBSB show now live. They were like, ‘Who knew?’ And I was like, ‘How could you not know? All I do is dance around the set in between takes,’” he said. Wahlberg also dished that last year’s secret society/murder plot is gone for good. And he couldn’t be happier about it. “I think this will allow us to focus more on what makes this different from all the other cop shows. We are going to focus on the family aspect … I think there is enough there with the family, the police work, and New York City itself to keep the fans interested and keep the show going. I think that is what the audience is drawn to. I think it will be more individualized episodes and cases this year as opposed to one giant arc like last season. It is hard to do serialized stuff on broadcast networks. There are too many pre-emptions for holidays and sporting events and awards shows. On cable, you can go 10 weeks and it is one every Thursday for 10 weeks. We are on 22 out of 40, and I think that makes serialization more difficult in my opinion. I think you start to lose people.”
