MacGyver Renewed For Season Five

MacGyver Renewed For Season Five

CBS announced today that MacGyver is getting a fifth season. It’s the renewal notice that fans have been waiting for. After getting less than anticipated out of the fourth season due to worldly events, it is a welcomed announcement. Although we don’t know when the season will be airing, there is no doubt that the writers will have another tantalizing tale for fans. With the uncertainties that are facing our current world, it’s good to have something like television to fall back on. It helps us escape “reality” for awhile. 

MacGyver and the rest of the Phoenix Foundation have evolved immensely from past seasons. This is no longer just a “fun-loving” show. There is undeniable darkness and depth to the characters and their intricate stories. Instead of being pictures of “perfection”, we are able to see the real grit of what makes these characters tick. I am hoping they will continue to explore these avenues in the season to come. 

The series has garnered quite a following since the reboot went live in 2016. The popularity of the original series seems to have carried on to this one. With a wide fan base, this cements the longevity of the show.  Peter Lenkov seems to have the golden touch when it comes to rebooting series and may that trend continue.

What are your thoughts on the show and the possibilities that may present themselves? Will we get answers? Or, will the writers, as they so often do, take us by surprise yet again.

MacGyver Stars: Lucas Till, Tristin Mays, Justin Hires, Meredith Eaton, Levy Tran, and Henry Ian Cusick.
