Jesse Stone is the protagonist in a series of long-running crime stories. Robert B. Parker created the character. He made his debut in Night Passage in 1997. After that, he was reintroduced in tales by Parker, Michael Brandman, and Reed Farrel Coleman.

Stone is not a character that can only be found in novels. He has appeared in several TV movies with Tom Selleck playing the role of Stone.

How many Jesse Stone movies exist? And in what order should they be viewed?

Let’s take another look…

Stone Cold was the first movie to air the Jesse Stone series. The CBS TV movie told the story about a small-town police chief who investigates a murder.

The movie was a huge success on the network and it was aired. A follow-up was approved. Night Passage was the follow-up.

The title Death in Paradise was released on CBS just a few months after Night Passage aired. In 2007, a fourth film was released. A fifth came in 2009, a sixth in 2010 and a seventh in 2011. An eighth followed in 2012.

CBS ended the series after eight films, all of which featured Selleck as the main character. The network was not moving in a new direction because Jesse Stone was no longer popular with viewers.

Hallmark was determined not to let a good series of films go unfinished so they purchased the Jess Stone series from Hallmark for a ninth installment. Lost in Paradise was aired in 2015.

This list will allow you to view the Jesse Stone films in order of production.

  • Jesse Stone: Stone Cold (2005)

Which order is best to view the Jesse Stone films?

It doesn’t really matter if you watch the Jesse Stone series chronologically or in production order. However, I recommend that you choose chronological order. Night Passage is Stone’s story of his move to Paradise. It works well as the first episode in the series.
