Why the ‘Blue Bloods’ Cast Don’t Hang out Together During Their Break

The cast of Blue Bloods looks very close on screen playing the Reagan family. They spend a lot of time together especially when filming those family dinner scenes, but they don’t really hang out together when they’re not filming.

Why don’t they hang out and what is the cast up to during their break between Season 9 and 10? Here is everything you need to know.

Donnie Wahlberg has been touring with New Kids On The Block during the break

The performer has been keeping fans updated on Instagram during his break from Blue Bloods. He’s currently on tour with New Kids On The Block. He shared pictures on stage, behind the scenes, and with his wife, Jenny McCarthy.

The band recently released a music video for “80s Baby.” Wahlberg worked with Naughty By Nature’s Kaygee to create the song.

Kaygee played me tracks, I got inspired, started writing,” he told People. “But when he played what has now become ’80s Baby,’ I heard it and I just wanted to write to it immediately. And then putting it in front of an audience, there’s nothing like it.”

Vanessa Ray seems to be having a relaxing summer

Vanessa Ray seems to be having a more relaxing summer. She posted a picture on Instagram celebrating a wedding with friends. The actress also posted a picture of her looking fully packed for some kind of trip and another picture of her lounging by the pool.

Fans might be a little disappointed to know that Ray’s chances of hanging out with Estes outside of work are low. Eddie and Jamie got married at the end of Season 9, but Ray is married in real life to Landon Beard.

Ray and Estes are good friends from playing police partners and lovers over the years. However, they don’t hang out outside of work and Estes gave a good reason for that.

Will Estes said they spend so much time together working that they don’t hang out

Most of the cast play a tight family together so fans might want to know if they spend time together in real life. The answer is no, but Will Estes has a good reason why.

People ask if we hang out outside of work and we’re always like, ‘Not really but we spend so much time at work together and we get along so well!’” Estes told Taylor magazine. “We are great friends. When Saturday comes around we’re not usually calling each other to hang out but we do get along great, we are like a family.”

He then said, “Many of the cast and crew spend more time with each other than they do with their real families. It’s a very full-time job you know, 99.99% we all get along. It’s been a pleasure.”

The good news is that Blue Bloods will be returning for Season 10 because the cast does love working together. Fans will have to wait for an announcement of when the season premiere will air.
