by Megan Molseed

Tom Selleck fans have long been waiting for the latest – and final – installment of the Blue Bloods star’s hit film franchise series Jesse Stone. Now, the longtime actor has given fans an awesome sneak-peek, updating viewers on the progress of the long-awaited film.

“I’m still working on it!” Tom Selleck confirms to his fans about a brand-new Jesse Stone installment. However, Selleck notes, this film will veer slightly from the other films within the popular film franchise.

“It isn’t the same cumulative narrative anymore,” Tom Selleck tells TV Insider of the newest Jesse Stone addition. Selleck explains that it was important that the films acknowledge that his character Jesse Stone has gotten older as the years have gone by.

“As time has passed, I’m older and the Jesse Stone audience needs to account for that,” the Blue Bloods star explains.

“He’s at a different part of his life,” the actor continues.

Will ‘Jesse Stone’ Be Finding a New Home in Latest Installment?

It’s an interesting take, watching Jesse Stone age just as anyone else would, and having the latest films adapt to this. However, Selleck says, this wasn’t the initial plan for the franchise after the completion of the ninth installment years ago.

“That’s interesting,” Selleck says of the new approach to the beloved character.

“But that’s not the script we started to do after we finished the ninth movie,” he adds. Selleck also notes that the Jesse Stone films have long been connected with the Hallmark channel. However, he says, there’s a chance this could change in the future.

“We have a deal with Hallmark Channel,” Selleck explains.

“But they’ve moved on to [other] shows,” he adds noting that if Hallmark doesn’t take the newest Jesse Stone film, the show will still go on!

“It’s saleable,” Tom Selleck says of the final Jesse Stone film.

“If it’s not on Hallmark, we could end up elsewhere,” the actor explains.
