Magnum P.I. made a comeback to TV via NBC. The series, which had run on CBS for four seasons, was cancelled last year before being saved. This, of course, gave fans the opportunity to pick up where they left off in the show with Thomas Magnum and his partnership (both in the field and in his personal life) with Juliet Higgins.

Since late February, the audience has been tuning in weekly to the hit procedural as it finds its legs on its new network. There, however, seems to be some confusion on whether or not the series has wrapped for the season and fans should be waiting on renewal news or not. Here’s what we know about Magnum P.I.‘s season 5 release schedule and the show’s renewal status.

Will there be a season 6 of Magnum P.I.?

Update: June 23, 2023 – Deadline reports Magnum P.I. has been canceled. Part 2 of season 5, which is 10 episodes, will serve as the show’s final outing.

This news hasn’t been announced, so the series is still sitting in renewal/cancellation limbo. When NBC first picked up the show, the reporting around the save centered on the program being split into ten episode seasons meaning there would be a season 5 and season 6 guaranteed for the show with an option for more down the line.

As season 5 got closer to broadcast, this was no longer the case. Instead, the fifth season would have a total of 20 episodes which would be split up. Season 5A finished its run on Sunday, April 23. It’s being dubbed a midseason finale which is interesting considering most of TV will be wrapping up its 2022-2023 programming slate to usher in summer shows.

There’s been no word yet on when Magnum P.I. season 5B will begin airing. Either this will be a short hiatus and the series will run in the summer or NBC will hold it until the fall so the back half of the show can air during its Fall TV slate.

We’ll keep you posted on Magnum P.I.‘s return date. Stay tuned to Hidden Remote for more TV, streaming, and film news.
