When Does Magnum P.I. Season 3 Release on CBS?

A re-imagining of the eponymous 1980 classic series, ‘Magnum P.I.’ follows the adventures of Thomas Magnum, a former Navy SEAL turned private investigator, as he hunts down criminals in Hawaii, along with his partner in crime-solving, an ex-MI6 agent Juliet Higgins. The procedural crime drama series is a part of the ‘Lenkov-verse,’ which comprises ‘Hawaii Five-0’ and ‘MacGyver.’ Although the show has received mixed reviews from the critics, it has garnered a decent fanbase since its premiere, which paved the way for two successful seasons. In case you’re wondering: Will there be a ‘Magnum P.I.’ season 3? We are here to help you with that.

Magnum P.I. Season 3 Release Date

‘Magnum P.I.’ season 2 premiered on September 27, 2019, on CBS. It concluded its run on May 8, 2020, after airing 20 hour-long episodes.

The good news for the fans is that season 2 saw a 9% increase in viewership than the first season, causing the network to green-lit the show for a third season, ahead of the season 2 finale. CBS announced the renewal on May 6, 2020, along with several other shows in the 2020-2021 season line-up. However, if we consider the production delays and halts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fans might have to wait for quite a while for the third season of their favorite show. If somehow things work out, we expect ‘Magnum P.I.’ season 3 to release sometime in 2021, on CBS.

Magnum P.I. Season 3 Cast: Who is in it?

Jay Hernandez headlines the cast as private investigator Thomas Magnum. Joining him as his partner and concierge is former MI6 agent Juliet Higgins. Zachary Knighton appears as Orville “Rick” Wright, a former Marine who now owns an exotic tiki bar. Stephen Hill stars as Marine veteran and Magnum’s team member, Theodore “T.C.” Calvin.

The supporting cast comprises Amy Hill as Teuila “Kumu” Tuileta, Tim Kang as HPD Detective Gordon Katsumoto, James Remar as Captain Buck Greene, Ken Jeong as Luther H. Gillis, Christopher Thornton as Kenny “Shammy” Shamberg, Brooke Lyons as Abigail “Abby” Miller, Bobby Lee as Jin, among others. In season 3, we expect most of the lead cast to make their returns. The third season can also include multiple crossover cameos from ‘Hawaii Five-0.’

Magnum P.I. Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?

In season 2, we see Magnum putting his life in danger to solve convoluted crimes and track down dangerous criminals as part of his job as a private investigator. After an investigation gets way too lethal, Higgins finally agrees to partner up with Magnum. The crime-solving duo catches many criminals and saves multiple lives throughout the season.

Towards the end, Higgins realizes that she may have to return to the UK as she has overstayed her stay in Hawaii. Magnum comes up with the idea of them getting married just for the sake of a green card. However, things go haywire, leaving Magnum in an uncomfortable position.

In season 3, we can expect Higgins and Magnum to deal with the aftermath of the ending of the first season. Higgins’ last-minute decision to marry Theodore Calvin instead of Magnum, might make things a little awkward between the partners. However, they might keep their differences aside and continue their hunt for thieves, murderers, serial killers, drug traffickers, and other criminals to safeguard the citizens of Hawaii.
