Jay Hernandez is ready to risk everything…
NBC has released the official trailer for part two of the fifth season of the 45-year-old Mexican actor’s Magnum P.I.
New episodes will air the following day on Peacock.
The series is a modern take on the classic series centering on Thomas Magnum (Hernandez), a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator.
A charming rogue, an American hero and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business.
Magnum P.I. also stars Perdita Weeks, Zachary Knighton, Stephen Hill, Amy Hill and Tim Kang.
Magnum P.I. will end following Season 5 Part 2 after only one season on NBC. The series previously aired on CBS for four seasons before it was canceled. June was a precarious time for the show’s cast whose options were up on June 30. At the moment, networks continue to be conservative with pickups amid the ongoing writers strike as it’s unclear when scripted series could go into production.
The show, which did well on CBS before being canceled, continues to be a strong draw.
Magnum P.I.‘s Season 5 viewership was on par with some of the NBC scripted series, which were renewed for next season.
