MacGyver Picked Up For Full Season

CBS announced today MacGyver has been topped up to a full 22 episode first season. The 2016 update to the 1980s action-adventure series is four weeks into its debut run, where it has so far surprised with solid ratings in its Friday night time slot.
Expectations for the series were decidedly low, and early reviews have not been kind. Despite its uphill battle, the show's numbers have told a different story, with an overall improvement in its time slot vs. last year in both total viewers and the adults 18-49 demographic.
The network has commissioned nine new episodes to add to the already-ordered 13, hoping that the show's strong start amounts to more than just the nostalgia factor.

In the original pilot, Joshua Boone, Addison Timlin and Michelle Krusiec were cast as Gunner, MacGyver's best friend from high school, Mickey, an app developer who is aggressively progressive in her political views, with a soft spot for MacGyver and Agent Croix, Lincoln's sister who works for the Department of Homeland Security. In June 2016, Till and Eads remain in the cast as MacGyver and Eads's character renamed to Jack Dalton.
