TV Shows

Tom Selleck isn’t happy that CBS canceled Blue Bloods. He insisted the show was still a ratings juggernaut and the cancelation makes no sense. However, that might change if Selleck has his way. With the season finale coming up, Tom says he is “optimistic” about the show’s future, despite its cancelation.

Here is what Tom had to say about his show’s possible future.

Tom Selleck Optimistic About Blue Bloods Future

Despite CBS canceling it, Tom Selleck said he is not giving up hope in Blue Bloods’ return to television. Selleck plays patriarch Frank Reagan on the hit police procedural series. However, when CBS announced the show would end after Season 14, split into two parts, Selleck and other cast members were unhappy with the decision.

“I will continue to think that CBS will come to their senses,” Selleck said when asked about the show’s future on CBS Sunday Morning. “We’re the third-highest show in all of broadcast. We’re winning the night. All the cast wants to come back” Donnie Wahlberg, who plays one of Frank’s sons, Danny Reagan, also voiced his displeasure at the cancelation.

While CBS went back on its cancelation of S.W.A.T., and gave it one more season, the studio heads said it won’t happen for Blue Bloods. However, Selleck said he is optimistic about the show getting a second chance after the upcoming finale.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Seleck said he has to remain optimistic about the show’s future. “I’m gonna stay optimistic because everybody on the show wants to do it I’m just staying optimistic,” he said.

Why Did CBS Cancel Blue Bloods?

Tom Selleck said that no one understands why CBS is canceling Blue Bloods. “The reason I talk about it this much is so the public doesn’t think we’re just winding down and the show is tired,” Selleck said. “We’re as good as ever and very successful.”

Selleck said the show is the “third-highest scripted show in all of broadcast.” He said they are winning the night and everyone wants to return for another season. He said they aren’t sliding and are holding their place, so he wants the show back. Selleck also said he might lose his Los Angeles ranch if the show is canceled for good.

With so many cast members wanting to return and the show still on top, why is CBS canceling Blue Bloods? According to CBS Entertainment President, Amy Reisenbach (via Deadline), the network wants a strong schedule. That includes “refreshing” the schedule and ending some shows to start new ones. This means that, no matter how popular a show is, CBS is looking for the next big thing and gambles the new shows will keep the same audience.
