Despite its broadcast on Friday evening, Magnum PI remained a solid performer for CBS in the ratings. Will this trend continue and will it be enough to keep the series on air? Will Magnum PI be canceled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned.
Magnum PI stars Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Zachary Knighton, Stephen Hill, Tim Kang and Amy Hill. Recurring artists include Lance Kim, Chantal Thuy and Martin Martinez. This reboot of the 1980s TV show follows Thomas Magnum (Hernandez), a decorated former Navy SEAL who reuses his military skills to become a private investigator. He lives in a guesthouse on Robin’s Nest, the luxury estate where he works as a security consultant to complement his IP business. The property’s “majordomo” is Juliet Higgins (Weeks), a handsome and imposing disowned MI: 6 agent who keeps Magnum in line. When Magnum needs backup for a job, he turns to his trusted friends and fellow POW survivors, helicopter pilot Theodore “TC” Calvin (Hill) and Orville “Rick” Wright (Knighton), a former Navy gunner who now runs a nightclub. Magnum has frequent run-ins with Police Detective Gordon Katsumoto (Kang) and the two are more alike than either will admit. Robin’s Nest’s unofficial “House Mom” and cultural curator, Teuila “Kumu” Tuileta (Hill) is also one of Magnum’s biggest fans..
