Tom Selleck recently shared his concerns about potentially losing his 63-acre California ranch following the cancellation of his long-running show, ‘Blue Bloods.’

During an interview with CBS Sunday Morning at his Ventura County ranch, the actor revealed his worries about affording the property once his role on ‘Blue Bloods’ concludes after 14 years. He admitted that maintaining the ranch depends on his ongoing employment.

“You know, hopefully, I keep working enough to hold onto the place,” he said.

“That’s always an issue,” Selleck added. “If I stopped working, yeah. Am I set for life? Yeah, but maybe not on a 63-acre ranch!”

And even though he has a decades-long acting career under his belt, Tom Selleck, who is 79 years old, shows no signs of slowing down and isn’t considering retirement anytime soon.

“As an actor, you never lose — I don’t lose, anyway — that sense that every time I finish a job, it’s my last job,” he said.

“I like the fact that there’s no excuses,” he continued. “You just go to work and you do the work. And I have a lot of reverence for what I call ‘the work,’ and I love it. And I’d like to keep doing it.”

Given the show’s success and the cast’s eagerness to return, he remains optimistic that CBS might reconsider the cancellation.

“I will continue to think that CBS will come to their senses,” he said. “We’re the third-highest scripted show in all of broadcast. We’re winning the night. All the cast wants to come back. And I can tell you this: we aren’t sliding off down a cliff. We’re doing good shows, and still holding our place. So, I don’t know. You tell me!”

Although ‘Blue Bloods’ was considered to be one of CBS’s most popular shows, the network decided to end the police drama after fourteen years. The cancellation reportedly stemmed from the show’s high production costs and challenging budget negotiations. Deadline first reported in late 2023 that ‘Blue Bloods’ would conclude after a two-part Season 14, with the decision to end the series being made following the SAG-AFTRA strikes.
