The show came to an end earlier this month with the release of its season 12 finale.

Ahead of the finale, Selleck guest-starred on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where he reflected on his career, which spans four decades.

Speaking on the 250th episode milestone of Blue Bloods, the actor acknowledged how “incredible” the achievement was and added: “I don’t know where the time went.”

Thinking back, Selleck recalled: “We did 163 hours of Magnum and I thought well okay, you can’t get that lucky twice.

“It was a really lovely little celebration,” he remarked.

The actor then looked into the future and stated: “I love what I do, I want to keep doing it and so far so good.”

Thankfully for Blue Bloods fans, this will be the case, as the series was renewed for season 13, earlier this month.

This is a huge success for the show as it’s the network’s third longest-running CBS scripted show, behind NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles.

Blue Bloods first premiered in 2010 and it has continued to dominate the network’s ratings as it scored a season’s best with 6.11million total viewers in the live+ same day tallies.

As Blue Bloods shows no signs of slowing down, in a separate interview, Frank revealed he was the reason his hit 80’s show Magnum PI came to an end.

Speaking about the milestone in an interview with TV Insider he said: “I never thought I’d be lucky enough to do a show that had that long a run.

“Maybe Magnum, PI could have reached that number because nobody wanted to cancel it.”
