Magnum P.I. was already on thin air when NBC picked it up for a fifth season, but now it’s true that Season 5 Part 2 will be the last episode. Magnum P.I. is set in Hawaii and started on CBS in 2018 as a remake of the 1980s Tom Selleck show of the same name.
It’s done well, and there have been pairings with Hawaii Five-0 and MacGyver, two other shows that brought back old crime shows. Both of those reboots are now over, and the second half of Magnum P.I. season 5 will also be the last episode of Thomas Magnum’s remade modern adventures.
To give the show a satisfactory ending, Magnum P.I. will have to tie up as many loose ends as possible. There is a lot of Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2 news to find out about Jay Hernandez’s last appearance as Magnum as the show’s end draws near. Everything you need to know about Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2, from the plot to the stars.
Most Recent Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2 News
Most of the latest news about Magnum P.I. season 5 part 2 is actually about seasons that came before. CBS canceled the show after its first four seasons, which were new episodes of the old show. NBC saved the show for a fifth season, and after they ran, new episodes of season 5 could be streamed on Peacock. You can no longer watch the first four seasons. That will change right before the October launch of Magnum P.I. season 5 part 2.
You will be able to watch the first four seasons of Magnum P.I. on Freevee, but season 5 will still be on Peacock. From September 1, you can watch those four seasons. There will be different seasons of Magnum P.I. on different streaming sites, based on where the show first aired. Season 5 will stay on Peacock.
That might seem hard for people who want to watch the whole series at once, but having two options could be helpful. It was kind of a mess after NBC decided not to continue the show for a sixth season. At first, it seemed like the show had been canceled, but that’s not quite right.
NBC chose not to renew it instead, letting the cast contracts end while the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes were going on. NBC may decide to renew the show after all if it gets a lot of streaming traffic on both platforms. They may even move it forever to the NBC-Universal streaming service Peacock. We still don’t know what will happen to Magnum P.I. season 5 part 2.
Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2 Is Confirmed
Part 2 of the season has been confirmed by NBC, which has said that they will do what they said they would do with the first 20 episodes of Magnum P.I. Season 5. NBC has already shown the first 10 shows. The second set of 10 shows was supposed to air in 2024 at first.
It has been pushed up to October 4, 2023, though, when Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2 will come out. That night, NBC will start airing new episodes once a week, and Peacock will let you watch them the next day.
Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2 Cast
The cast of Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2 will be mostly the same as the cast of Part 1. There are new major cast members: Jay Hernandez as Magnum, Perdita Weeks as Higgins, Zachary Knighton as Rick, Stephen Hill as TC, Tim Kang as Katsumoto, and Amy Hill as Kumu. Bobby Lee (Jin) and Emily Alana (Mahina), two actors who came back in the first half of the season, will also come back in the second half.
Showrunner Eric Guggenheim told TV Guide that Patrick Fabian will be joining the cast of Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2. The member of the Better Call Saul group will play a bad guy in the last few episodes. In episode 13, which is about Japanese people being held in camps in the United States during World War II, Sab Shimono will also appear as a guest star. As a child, the actor’s family was held in a camp in California, which gives him a sense of what the part is like.
Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 2 Story
In Magnum P.I. Season 5 Part 1, the story was told over the course of a longer arc. In Part 2, the story will be told over the course of several shorter arcs. Eric Guggenheim, who runs the show, says that these arcs will be character-driven and focus on each member of the group. That should make sure that in the second half of the season, all of the key characters get the same amount of storytime.
Part 2 of Magnum P.I. Season 5 will also have stories about relationships. It will be hard for Rick and Suzy (Betsy Phillips) to be parents at the same time. Magnum and Higgins’ relationship will also become more serious. As the honeymoon period ends, there will be some “bumps in the road” in their relationship.
Guggenheim told TV Guide that the writers were planning to include in season 6 the history of how Higgins knows Robin, the owner of the property where she and Magnum live and work. Every time the writers wanted to include a plotline linked to that backstory, they had to let other stories go first. If no other network decides to pick up the show for a possible sixth season, that plot point will stay a secret.
