After airing the first eight seasons in the 1980s, CBS is working on rebooting their classic show “Magnum P.I.,” which originally starred actor Tom Selleck.
The rebooted series will include an updated plot line that “follows Thomas Magnum, a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. With help from fellow vets Theodore ‘TC’ Calvin and Orville ‘Rick’ Wright, as well as that of disavowed former MI:6 agent Juliet Higgins, Magnum takes on the cases no one else will, helping those who have no one else to turn to.”
The reboot has reportedly already been given a “pilot production commitment” from the network.
No word on whether Selleck will return, especially since he’s already on CBS's “Blue Bloods.”
