At This Point, Tom Selleck Wishes To Terminate ‘Blue Bloods’


During his prime, Tom Selleck was able to bring many things to a close. He put an end to America’s dread of mustaches in the 1980s.

At the same time, he put an end to the world’s fear of wearing Hawaiian shirts, while also mercilessly putting an end to his own hopes of playing Indiana Jones. Today, he wants to put a stop to Blue Bloods… sort of.

Blue Bloods, which marked its tenth season finale in May 2020, has accounted for the majority of Selleck’s acting employment over the last two decades, despite reverse mortgage advertising. That makes the 75-year-old actor’s support for its abolition all the more strange.

However, in a TV Insider interview, Selleck seemed to implicitly concur that a sell-by date makes for better television.

When asked if he’d rather shoot for 15 seasons or “end on a high note,” Selleck responded, “Well, I’m negotiating with CBS about next season.” I’d like to request two seasons.

If we know where we’re headed, we can put on far greater shows. This show has survived because the characters have been given the opportunity to develop and change.”

Aside from that, he had nothing but positive things to say about his co-stars and expressed excitement about returning to set. “The cast appears to adore one another; I certainly adore them.” The actors are doing fantastic work.

Everyone is well aware that this may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity-a production that has found its path and is well received by an audience. I’m ready to return when it’s safe to restart.”

However, Tom Selleck believes that Blue Bloods has “A Lot of Life” left in it.

Tom Selleck has played Frank Reagan, the patriarch of a family with law enforcement running through their veins like some sort of blue body fluid, for all ten seasons of Blue Bloods. Despite its extraordinarily long run, the show has maintained a consistent following, with Deadline stating that it has averaged over 10 million viewers per episode throughout the course of its broadcast.


Much of that success, arguably, can be due to Selleck’s charisma. Selleck is a multigenerational TV and movie personality best remembered for his role as the star of Magnum, P.I., which lasted from 1980 to 1988 and was fueled by a literal stream of pure eighties mindset, electrically charged and pushed through Selleck’s chest hair every morning.

The fact is, Selleck wields considerable sway over Blue Blood’s future. To be clear, while Selleck recently suggested that two additional seasons would be a fine idea, he has also showed openness to going much farther. “I don’t think there is an end point,” he said in a previous 2020 interview with People.

I believe there is a lot of life in the program if you allow your characters to grow and mature.” Thus, it’s possible that Selleck doesn’t necessarily want Blue Bloods to conclude in two seasons, but rather sees the value in letting everyone involved a few seasons to plan things out and/or perhaps wrap them up, if that makes sense.

  1. We love this show and we never miss an episode and really like watching Tom Selleck on the show. Hopefully they don’t cancel it.

    • Anyway who had been a loyal fan not just to the Blue Blood series but to Mr Selleck himself doesn’t want to see this end.

      However, whomever is making crucial decisions should positively NOT omit critical actors such as Steve ( Anthony), Abigail, or Garrett! What are they thinking.
      As I stated before if main characters want the series to end, so be it. Any other reason is simply wrong. Network making major mistake.
