Is the sixth season still in the works? Here is everything we know so far about Magnum P.I. Season 6.
With its charismatic lead actor, intense action sequences, and engaging storylines, the show has attracted a loyal fan base over the years, which is understandable due to its intriguing plotlines, and we’re truly thankful to NBC for picking up the series for a two-season, twenty-episode order as the series was canceled after four seasons.
Following the network’s failure to reach a new agreement with rightsholders CBS Studios and Universal Television, despite being a Top 25 show in viewers. As the show’s fifth season’s first part has reached its end with the premiere of the spring finale on April 23, 2023.
The viewers are once again left wondering whether Magnum P.I. will return for its sixth season or if it will be canceled. If you’re wondering the same, then we can assure the readers that if we consider the fact that NBC picked up the show with a two-season renewal, then the good news is already in our hands as it encompasses an already renewed sixth season!
However, as per an early source, NBC had ordered the series for two seasons, each consisting of ten episodes, as opposed to one lengthy fifth season with 20 episodes split into two halves for the NBC broadcast season of 2022–23.
Due to this development, major confusion has been caused among the fandom. As the loyal fans have been left wondering if the network has gone forward with one big season consisting of two parts combined with the fifth and sixth seasons rather than renewing it for additional seasons after everything involving the final episode of the fifth season is over.
To be very honest, despite this slight confusion, there is no doubt that a major network like NBC won’t back down this easily after acquiring its rights, and only the network can correct this confusion. On the bright side, when it comes to the sixth season, we know that NBCUniversal is the series’ owner, and we believe it will be renewed, provided that the show’s core cast members are interested in continuing to work on it.
We’ll just have to wait for the network to give some clarity to this situation and confirm that a sixth season is definitely in the works.
Moreover, the renewal won’t come as a major surprise, as the show has always been a consistent performer in the network’s ratings, regularly ranking among the top 20 scripted television shows. Additionally, the fifth season so far has seen a slight increase in viewership, averaging at least 3 million viewers for each episode in the US alone, indicating that the show is still attracting new viewers from across the world.
Furthermore, Magnum P.I. has a passionate fan base that has taken to social media to express its support for the show and its desire for the series continuation. This outpouring of fan support has not gone unnoticed, and it will undoubtedly influence the network’s decision to renew the show for another season and last it for some more years by satisfying the demands of the viewers.
In addition, viewers can anticipate more of the same exciting plotlines and compelling characters if Magnum P.I. does return for season six. In conclusion, there don’t appear to be any big worries for the fandom, and there are good reasons to be positive about the future of the show. It’s certainly possible that Magnum P.I. will return for another thrilling season.
We’ll just have to wait for NBC to make an official announcement in the coming months.
