When Season 10 of ‘Blue Bloods’ ended abruptly, it left the Reagan family off with some significant changes to gripe with in the times coming.
Since the final episode was released, fans have been clamoring for information regarding the show’s return post-pandemic. Now, in an interview with TV Insider, Tom Selleck opened up about his thoughts surrounding the controversial ending of Season 10, as well as the prospect of the show returning for another season eventually once normal business can resume.
The last episode of ‘Blue Bloods’ brought forward some major revelations in the storyline, including lost siblings, new children, and job relocations that have practically made the entire plot do a 180 degree turn.
However, the show abruptly ended after this information was shared due to an abundance of caution regarding COVID-19. Selleck reflected to People about the prospect of the show returning, “I don’t think there is an end point, I think there is a lot of life in the show, as long as you let your characters grow and get older.”
“There is an evolution,” Selleck went on to explain. “It started out as a character-driven show and it’s even more than that now. When you get to a point like this, and we certainly had it on [Magnum P.I.], the audience is really inside the main characters.”
“Our dinner party scenes are like a reunion of friends,” he continued to mention of the time he gets to spend around castmates. “Sometimes it’s hard for the directors to get us to concentrate.”
“We do the work, and we do it well, but we’re also screwing around and kidding each other and catching up. What we have is truly a blessing,” the veteran actor continued.
While speaking to ‘TV Insider,’ Selleck explained that his television family will be “much different” in a new season, ‘Nobody dies. I shouldn’t say that. We may lose four Reagans.”
The actor then went on to say, “It’s certainly massively emotional for Frank. That’s the germination of it, but by sharing it with the family, the impact is huge.”
“If we have a Blue Bloods with genuine surprises that don’t make the audience feel ripped off, but that rewards emotionally, our audience will watch it of course. But in my opinion, it will create word of mouth and build our audience. I can’t imagine a better season finale,” he concluded his explanation.
Although no official announcement has been made yet in regards to the next season, Selleck’s comments can instill hope in fans that there is surely more to come from the Reagan family in time.
