‘MacGyver’ Season 4, May 8, 2020 Episode 13 Is The Finale. It’s Renewed For Season 5
Hey, MacGyver fans. We are coming at you with a totally new article about your favorite action and adventure show “MacGyver.” We’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. However, let’s be clear. The good news is far more better than the bad news.
We’re going to tell you the bad news first. Like many of CBS’ scrip[ted shows, MacGyver fell prey to the terrible pandemic and had to shut down production of new episodes back in March 2020.
That means they were only able to get 13 episodes filmed and out the door. That’s right, guys. This current season 4 would’ve featured many, many more episodes had it not been for the terrible Covid-19 pandemic mess. Instead, the 4th season will end tonight with the 13th episode.
The show’s main star Lucas Till aka MacGyver hit up his official Instagram account back on March 13, 2020 to make the unfortunate announcement that their filming had been shut down.
It was a video post that was captioned with the following words: “Hello everyone. Normally this would take place at a wrap party or a last day or something but given the circumstances, this seemed like the best option.
So to our crew- “I think this the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca (but also me, cause I mean that shizz).” You guys can view that post on Lucas Still’s official Instagram account by Clicking Here.
We’re not sure exactly how many episodes season 4 was originally scheduled to air. We assume it was a full season of at least 20 or so episodes. Whatever the case, this means you guys got a raw deal this season ,and you will only get half a season this year.
Now for the good news. Despite MacGyver’s very short season 4 run, CBS did indeed opt to renew it for a brand new season 5! That’s right, guys. Your favorite show is confirmed to be back for another run next season.
We’re not yet sure how many episodes season 5 will contain, but hopefully, CBS doubles their episode order to make up for this terrible pandemic situation that happened this season.
The LIVE ratings and viewership numbers for season 4 of MacGyver were quite strong. It averaged 6.107 million LIVE viewers per episode and a 0.67 ratings score for the 18-49 year old demographics.
The last episode 12, which aired on May 1, 2020, brought in 5.889 million LIVE viewers and a 0.60 ratings score.
With those results, we wouldn’t be surprised if CBS ordered at least another 20 episodes for season 5. Maybe more. But, we’re not looking at their books. So, we’ll have to wait and see.
Again, the new finale episode 13 of MacGyver’s current season 4 is scheduled to air tonight, May 8, 2020 at approximately 7 pm central standard time on CBS, of course.
Alright guys. That’s all we’ve got for this latest “MacGyver” TV show report, but definitely stay tuned for more.
