This decision by CBS could force actor Tom Selleck to join California’s growing homeless community

Actor Tom Selleck was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood during the 1980s and early 1990s.

But living in California can be too much for even a famous celebrity like Selleck to afford.

And this decision by CBS could force actor Tom Selleck to join California’s growing homeless community.

From 1980 to 1988, Tom Selleck starred in the popular television series Magnum P.I.

Selleck’s acting skills earned him an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 1985.

After Magnum P.I. ended, Selleck starred in the popular movie Three Men and a Baby in 1987 and its sequel Three Men and a Little Lady in 1990.

Selleck has appeared in more than 50 films and television shows during his long and successful acting career.

Even though he’s 79-years-old, Selleck continues his acting career to this day.

Since 2010, he’s co-starred as New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan in the CBS series Blue Bloods.

But last November, CBS announced that the 14th season, which premiered on February 16, 2024, would be the final season of Blue Bloods.

The series finale is set to air in December.

Selleck is not happy about the decision from CBS and has expressed his dissatisfaction on numerous occasions.

When a reporter recently asked him if the series was ending, Selleck said “that’s a good question,” before adding “I will continue to think that CBS will come to their senses.”

“We’re the third-highest scripted show in all of broadcast, we’re winning the night,” Selleck told the reporter. “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!”

When he’s not working, Selleck spends most of his time in California on his 63-acre ranch.

But if CBS ends Blue Bloods, then Selleck could be forced to sell the ranch due to an inability to afford it.

“You know, hopefully I keep working enough to hold onto the place,” he told CBS Sunday Morning’s Tracy Smith.

Smith asked the 79-year-old acting legend if he was being serious about finances being an issue given his long and successful career.

“Seriously, that’s an issue? If you stopped working?” she asked.

“If I stopped working, yeah,” he said. “Am I set for life?” he continued, before adding “yeah, but maybe not on a 63-acre ranch!”

Either way, Selleck said he hopes to continue working as an actor for many more years.

“Hopefully, work,” he said when asked what he sees down the road for him. “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.”

Right now it doesn’t appear that CBS has any intentions of adding another season to the series.

“All shows have to come to an end,” CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach said.

“It’s important for us to refresh the schedule,” she continued. “We are going to end the show come December.”

And Tom Selleck could end up becoming the latest member of the growing homeless population in California, or at the very least being forced to sell his ranch.
