MacGyver escapes perilous situations with nothing but a paperclip, his trusty Swiss Army knife and his wit. A dynamic reimagining of the hit television series, as he returns from war, a hero with an idealistic vision of saving the world. He and his late father’s best friend partner to form the clandestine Phoenix Foundation. Using his scientific know-how and resourcefulness MacGyver—alongside his intrepid team—undertakes missions to save lives and change the world.
CBS announced today that MacGyver has been renewed for Season 3. The action-adventure series has been a decent performer for the network on Friday nights.
An update of the 1980s classic, the series was somewhat of a surprise success for the network when it premiered in 2016. Initial expectations were decidedly low after an early panning by critics, but viewers have continued to tune in, helping CBS improve its time slot vs. 2015 in both total viewers and the adults 18-49 demographic.
Look for Season 3 of MacGyver this fall.
