Tom Selleck Talks about the Future of Jesse Stone

Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone

Here's a news item from a month ago we missed reporting on, though it's still relevant today!

Tom Selleck talked to TV Squad in late July about his new crime drama Blue Bloods, which premieres next month on CBS. During the conversation, the subject of his Jesse Stone films came up, and if there will be more. Selleck's definitive answer was "Yes", adding, "[I]t's important to tell people that, because the one thing I said to CBS was, 'I'm not going to do this series at the expense of Jesse Stone.'"

We already knew there would be at least one more, since it was filmed last year. Titled Innocents Lost, and the seventh in the series, it is an original screenplay based on the characters created by Robert B. Parker. If history is any guide here, CBS won't schedule this to air until next February or May.

But the good -- nay, great -- news is that Selleck mentions there's more to come. "[W]e're writing number eight, which we don't have a title for yet. So yes, there's going to be more Jesse Stones."

The first six made-for-television films in the Jesse Stone series, which we highly recommend, are available on DVD from Telemystery: Jesse Stone.
