New Magnum PI Season 5 Might Happen After All With A Rescue Attempt From NBC
Hey, “Magnum P.I.” fans. We are back with some very terrific news for you guys if all of this new info actually pans out. Nellie Andreeva who is the Co-Editor-In-Chief of the TV department over at Deadline.com took to the site on June 2, 2022 to reveal she is hearing that talks are in progress for NBC or the USA Network to potentially rescue Magnum PI from its terrible cancellation fate that CBS bestowed upon it last month!
Nellie went on to say that arrangements for this possibly amazing situation are still currently in the process of being figured out. The story she’s hearing is that the USA Network would pick up all the rerun episodes while NBC would run all the new episodes aka season 5.
Nellie also revealed that right after CBS canceled Magnum PI back on May 12, 2022, Universal Television ,who actually co-produces the show with CBS studios, started looking for an alternate network to rescue the show. This makes a lot of sense too because it wasn’t like Magnum PI was getting awful numbers for CBS. They were actually doing quite well. It’s reported that there was some sort of licensing deal that couldn’t get worked out.
Anyways, Deadline.com went on to report that the USA network actually started vying for the Magnum PI show, first. Then, NBC decided to enter the mix after them. It’s also reported that the folks over at Paramount Plus might have been interested. However, the main focus has been on NBC and the USA network. According to Nellie, the talks are now actually in the advanced stages. So, this is no joke.
One last important statement Nellie made in regards to this whole deal is that the negotiations to rescue Magnum PI need to be made before the month of June 2022 is over because if they don’t, Universal TV will have to extend the options for the cast, which will end on June 30, 2022. In other words, you guys need to cross your fingers and pray very, very hard that this deal goes through. If it does, you might get your wish for a new season 5!
As we previously reported, Magnum PI season 4 did very well for CBS, averaging 5.242 million LIVE viewers per episode, and a 0.42 ratings score for the 18-49 year old demographics.
Alright, guys. That’s all the info we could dig up for this latest, “Magnum P.I.” TV show report, but definitely stay tuned for more.
