Reboots are a risky business, and only a small fraction of all reboots made each year manage to keep the existing fans happy while also creating a new fan base. CBS’ Magnum PI is one of the few shows. In the fourth season that just ended last week, Gordon and Magnum started to trust each other. However, in Magnum PI Season 5, things will be quite challenging for the duo as many enemies want to take revenge.
Magnum PI Season 5: Renewal Status?
The fourth season of Magnum PI premiered on CBS on October 1, 2021. And the season ended with the finale set to air on May 6, 2022. Speaking of the prospect of the fifth season, there is no announcement from the creators whether the CBS network on Magnum PI Season 5 is renewed.
This is no cause for concern, however, as only a few days have passed since the fourth season finale aired. And given the high viewership and popularity of the show, it’s highly likely that CBS will bring the show back for another season. But this is just speculation at this point and only an official announcement will clear the picture.
What can we expect from Magnum PI Season 5?
The fourth season of Magnum PI was a complete rollercoaster ride for the fans. Last season saw Higgins and Magnum break into a high-security disciplinary center to rescue Gordon and his wife from scary convicts. Meanwhile, after this incident, Gordon and Magnum, who were previously not big fans of each other, started to trust each other. This is because Magnum was there when Gordon needed him the most.
Saving your friends from a really nefarious criminal doesn’t come with making some angry enemies though. This could form the basis for Magnum PI Season 5. Upon its return, the show will pick up the story after the events of Season 4. The upcoming season could focus on how Magnum will handle the situation. Moreover, drama and intrigue are on their way, especially in the life of Magnum and those around him.
Why do fans love Rick so much?
Rick is a great friend that anyone would love to have by his side. He will be through it all. He always has someone who can help him, especially when it comes to Magnum and Higgins’ cases. He seems to have contacts everywhere, showing his kindness and sympathy. He is also passionately devoted, especially to TC and Magnum, with whom he shared a prisoner of war experience.
Rick was on a terrible road in his life until he met Icepick. And Icepick, his father figure, led him away from it. Rick is also a diligent worker, who has risked everything to fulfill his dream of owning and operating La Mariana. In general, he is a nice man to deal with.
Best villain in Magnum PI reboot!
Mason Watts, the serial killer who appeared in Season 2 Episode 5 of the show, is arguably the best villain on the show yet. During the Halloween season, he managed to evade capture. He then attended the same Halloween party as Magnum. He stabbed a cop and fled when he was discovered.
Watts appeared in the same house when Rick and Higgin chose to sleep in a haunted house because it had been Rick’s fantasy. Watts is said to have murdered a family in this house, earning him the nickname ‘The Killer Of Waianae’. Watts mercilessly beat them down, but in the end they overcame him.
