Nostalgia is a powerful emotion that, as of late, has been the primary force behind reviving TV shows. The spy series MacGyverwas an ABC Network staple in in the late '80s, but was cancelled in 1992. CBS put a fresh spin on the series — famous for the title character's ability to fashion useful gadgets and weapons out of household items — when it was rebooted in 2016. Angus “Mac” MacGyver (Lucas Till) still prizes resourcefulness over guns and brute force. The Season 2 finale of MacGyver airs May 4, but what’s next for Mac? When does MacGyver Season 4 premiere?
Well, the precise premiere date isn’t official yet, but TV Line confirmed that MacGyver was renewed for Season 3 so fans are guaranteed more of Mac’s covert missions. CBS announced the show’s renewal in April,along with other shows like Hawaii Five-O and Blue Bloods. The past two seasons of MacGyver have premiered in late September, so next season will likely debut in September 2018. Definitive dates and production tidbits will probably come as the premiere gets closer.
In the meantime, MacGyver’s Twitter has been promoting the Season 2 finale episode, “MacGyver + MacGyver,” promising fans a thrilling conclusion to this season. The tweet also features a video clip of Mac resigning from his job due to trust issues, which should make for some big changes next season.
This clip gives fans a little insight into what will happen in Friday’s season finale, but the show’s future storylines also depend on how Season 2 ends. These burning questions will likely see deeper exploration next season:
