CBS’ hit action series Magnum P.I followed the story of a former Navy SEAL turned private investigator.
The show was based on the 1980s classic drama series that starred Tom Selleck.
Was Magnum P.I. canceled by CBS?
Magnum P.I.’s reboot first premiered in 2018 and was an instant hit among fans.
Despite the positive feedback, CBS announced in May 2022 that the show will wrap up after four seasons.
The news came as a shock to many because just a month prior, series lead Jay Hernandez spoke with TVLine and seemed very optimistic about the show’s future.

When asked if the show was looking good for a fifth season, Hernandez said “We’re golden. I think you could bank on that.”
Er machte weiter: “The numbers are great, it travels well internationally…. So yeah, I think we’re in good shape. And you know what, they’re happy with the show. They loved this season, a lot of the stories they were really digging. And the episode I directed, they loved to the extent that I’ve already been asked to direct another one next season.”
In diesem Moment, it still remains unclear why CBS decided to cancel the show, but it was not the only one to get axed.
B Positive, United States of Al, How We Roll, and Good Sam were also cut.
