After a remarkable 14-year stint embodying the esteemed New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan on the CBS hit drama "Blue Bloods," Tom Selleck finds himself contemplating the financial feasibility of maintaining his cherished 63-acre ranch once the series concludes this winter.

In a recent interview with CBS Sunday Morning, the 79-year-old actor shared his concerns from his idyllic Ventura County, California retreat. When asked by correspondent Tracy Smith about the potential impact of halting work on his lifestyle, Selleck candidly admitted, "That's always an issue.

If I stopped working, yeah. Am I set for life? Yeah, but maybe not on a 63-acre ranch!" Selleck, renowned for his iconic portrayal of Magnum PI, has remained optimistic about future opportunities but acknowledges the uncertainty inherent in the acting profession.

"Hopefully, work. 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."

Cast's Plea for Series Continuation"

The decision to conclude "Blue Bloods" with its upcoming season 14 finale, slated for December, was confirmed by CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach.

However, Selleck and some cast members expressed their willingness to take a pay cut to sustain the series, citing its strong performance and dedicated fan base. "I will continue to think that CBS will come to their senses," Selleck remarked.

"We're the third-highest scripted show in all of broadcast. We're winning the night. All the cast wants to come back." Selleck's ranch, purchased in 1988 after the conclusion of Magnum PI and previously owned by Dean Martin, holds sentimental value as a retreat from the spotlight.

Reflecting on his private life, Selleck emphasized his commitment to family and the solace found in ranch life. "I've always treasured the balance between work and time with my family. It's always about them. My relationships and my ranch keep me sane." Married to Jillie Joan Mack since 1987, Selleck prioritized family over career, a decision he considers pivotal in achieving personal equilibrium.

As the conclusion of "Blue Bloods" looms, Selleck navigates the transition with a blend of nostalgia for past achievements and hope for new endeavors, all while cherishing the tranquility of his beloved ranch. As fans eagerly anticipate the final season of "Blue Bloods," Selleck's future endeavors and the fate of his sprawling ranch remain subjects of keen interest.
