Blue Bloods’ Donnie Wahlberg, Annabella Sciorra and Marisa Ramirez film on set in upstate New York
The cast and crew of Blue Bloods has been working hard to crank out the last few episodes of Season 11 since show production began in October.
And on Wednesday stars Donnie Wahlberg, Annabella Sciorra and Marisa Ramirez were spotted in full costume as they shot a scene in upstate New York.
The Tom Selleck led police drama began filming its penultimate episode (15) last week but it is currently unknown if they have embarked on the finale.

Wahlberg (detective Danny Reagan), Sciorra (medical examiner Faith Marconi) and Ramirez (detective Maria Baez) were seen filming a scene with a cadaver surrounded by actors dressed as police personnel.
From the looks of the scene it appeared as if Wahlberg’s character was attempting to access the victim’s phone by way of facial recognition to unearth details surrounding his death.
A production camera was spotted in the right frame of the photo as the actors worked their magic, but Selleck’s character — police commissioner Frank Reagan — was not present in the scenes.
The show also stars Bridget Moynahan and Will Estes who play additional kids of Reagan and the drama follows the inner workings of a family and their lives in the police force.

The beloved CBS show has captured a loyal fan base due to its focus on realism as the show has an actual former NYPD detective review the scripts for accuracy.
Though there is no news as to whether or not the show will be picked up for Season 12 but it still remains one of the longest standing dramas on the network.
In an interview with PopCulture.com last year, Wahlberg spoke about never wanting the show to end while championing its success.
‘I just know that we’re having more fun than we’ve ever had on the show. It’s still the number one show on Friday night for 10 years and it’s been a great run and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon,’ he said.

And Selleck, 75, told People he thinks the show is boundless. ‘I don’t think there is an endpoint. I think there is a lot of life in the show, as long as you let your characters grow and get older.’
It was reported that the Magnum P.I. star was suffering from health issues due to weight gain, but his rep fired back that nothing of the sorts was true.
Since the eleventh season began filming they have been following strict COVID-19 related protocol to ensure safety. Typically one episode can take up to two weeks to be filmed, and family dinner scenes — which have become an episodic ritual — can take up to eight hours.
