CBS has announced that it has cancelled the Lucas Till-headlined MacGyver reboot, with this month’s season five finale set to now serve as the series finale.
“All of us at CBS are extremely grateful for the incredible work and dedication from Lucas and the rest of the cast, as well as [showrunner] Monica Macer, the writers and the entire crew,” stated CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl. “The MacGyver team traveled far and wide to repeatedly save the world with little more than bubble gum and a paper clip and made this show distinctly their own. We’re gratified we get to give this dedicated and loyal fan base the opportunity to say goodbye to their favorite characters in the thoughtful manner this series deserves.”
“Since coming on board to MacGyver last year, I have been amazed by the devotion and enthusiasm of this remarkable cast and crew, as well as the loyal fans,” added showrunner Macer. “My gratitude goes out to [stars] Lucas, Tristin Mays, Justin Hires, Meredith Eaton, Levy Tran and Henry Ian Cusick, who put everything they have into our show, specifically for the fans. We can’t wait for them to see our spectacular final episodes and the adventures that still await for Mac and the team at the Phoenix.”
The series finale of MacGyver is set to air on CBS on April 30th.
