8th Jesse Stone Movie May Be Last One for CBS

Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone

Benefit of the Doubt, the eighth "Jesse Stone" movie is scheduled to air on Sunday, May 20th, but Tom Selleck — who plays the character — says it may be the last … at least for CBS.

"Bless them, they've done eight of these and they always perform far above what's normally in the time slot, but they are constantly perplexed: 'We're not in the two-hour movie business.'", he says in an interview with Zap2It. "That being said, that's not the end of Jesse, or at least I don't think so. There are a lot of other entities, whether cable or even feature films, but this is most likely the last one on CBS. I'm not done with the character, though."

We're fans of the series, based on a character created by Robert B. Parker, and hope that Selleck — who recently assumed the role of executive producer for the films and has co-written the screenplays for the last couple — can find a way to continue the "Jesse Stone" franchise.
