Tom Selleck is a first ballot hall of famer when it comes TV stars. He's been one of the most iconic and recognizable faces on the small screen since the 1980s, and were it not for the cancelation of Blue Bloods, he could continue to be for the foreseeable future. The police drama is officially getting the axe, however, which raises questions about Selleck's next move.

Selleck has made it abundantly clear that he wants to keep making Blue Bloods. "I love the work," he told TV Insider. The show’s more popular than ever, and I think it will increase with the interest this year. We’re certainly not out of ideas." He also told the outlet that he would love to keep making new episodes as long as the fans want to watch them.

Tom Selleck wants Blue Bloods to continue

Since the show has not been renewed, however, Selleck finds himself in the position of having to step back and consider whether he wants to continue acting on another show. Unnamed sources told the outlet Radar Online that the actor may consider stepping back from the limelight and spending time with his family.

Selleck owns a ranch in Thousand Oaks-Westlake Village area in California, and the aforementioned sources claimed that he wants to focus on "all the outdoorsy things" that he doesn't have the time to as the star of a popular show. This makes sense, given that Selleck has been grinding in the TV game for over four decades.

Selleck doesn't have any plans to retire

The thing is, the actor says otherwise. Unnamed sources are never particularly reliable, especially when fans have the words of Selleck himself. During his TV Insider interview, the actor said that he does have a harder time getting through the difficult shooting schedules, but that he still loves the acting and the overall experience of being on a set:

"Sometimes the hours are a little harder because I’m older, but so what? I want work as long as they’ll have me."

That does not sound like a man who's retire to his ranch. Selleck doesn't have any shows lined up as of yet, but we won't be surprised to see him pop up in another major title once Blue Bloods comes to an end.
