• Tom Selleck fears for his home
  • The final season of 'Blue Bloods' is coming
  • Selleck thinks he may not keep his ranch

In a startling revelation that has fans buzzing, Tom Selleck, the rugged heartthrob of 'Blue Bloods' and 'Magnum PI' fame, confesses his financial fears for the future. Nestled in Ventura County, California, Selleck's 63-acre ranch might be at risk once 'Blue Bloods' wraps up this winter.

A Ranch at Risk

The CBS drama, which has been Selleck's home for the last 14 years, is coming to an end, leaving the actor pondering his next moves

During an emotional interview on CBS Sunday Morning, Selleck opened up about the potential financial strain of maintaining his beloved ranch.

"You know, hopefully I keep working enough to hold onto the place," he told CBS correspondent Tracy Smith. "Seriously, that’s an issue? If you stopped working?" Smith asked.

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

Asked what he sees in his future, Selleck added: "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."

With Blue Bloods set to conclude this December, Selleck is not ready to hang up his hat. Despite the show's success and his willingness, along with other cast members, to take a 25% pay cut to keep the series alive, CBS has decided to end the journey.

"I will continue to think that CBS will come to their senses," added Selleck. "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!"

Selleck remains hopeful, expressing his desire for the network to "come to their senses" given the show's high ratings and loyal fanbase.

A sentimental purchase

Selleck's ranch, a purchase he made in 1988 after 'Magnum PI', is more than just a property; it's a sanctuary. Despite the drought that wiped out its avocado crop, the ranch remains a place of solace for Selleck, who values privacy and family above all. The actor's dedication to balancing work and family life, with the ranch playing a central role, highlights his down-to-earth persona.

"I’m a fairly private person," Selleck told 'People' in a 2020 interview. "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. I do grunt work, and I make the rounds. I like watching things grow. It’s a retreat."

"I quit 'Magnum' to have a family. It took me a long time to get off the train, but I try very hard to have balance, and this ranch has helped me do that."
