The action series will return in 2018-2019.
April 18, 2018
CBS announced today that MacGyver has been renewed for Season 3. The action-adventure series has been a decent performer for the network on Friday nights.
An update of the 1980s classic, the series was somewhat of a surprise success for the network when it premiered in 2016. Initial expectations were decidedly low after an early panning by critics, but viewers have continued to tune in, helping CBS improve its time slot vs. 2015 in both total viewers and the adults 18-49 demographic.
Look for Season 3 of MacGyver this fall.

My wife and I loved the old MacGyver, and we absolutely love the new one. The characters are not just rehashes of the older ones, but fresh and new. The new MacGyver is terrific and does very well. We look forward to Season 3. On a down side, we were hoping that Richard Dean Anderson would show up as MacGyver's dad. Bit of a disappointment there though.

Reply to John: after reading your post I am guessing you left English class early too. How many of you bashing the reboot have recently watched an episode from the original? My guess is you loved the experience of watching the show (w family/friends) more than you were in love with the show. Memories can be fickle.

Like they said, let your seriousness at the door when you watch this show. I find it nice that it is not like all the cop and hospital shows on TV.
My 9 year old son and I love watching it, as I did with my dad for the original. It is great family TV. Please keep it coming

I'm getting worried about the writing on this one. I can suspend belief most of the time, but when MacGyver used Jack's heart to keep a transplant heart viable, I felt like I was watching yet another ridiculous episode of Scorpion! I really don't want to give up on MacGyver too.
The character that I can't stand is the new blonde. She doesn't bother the rest of my family, but that character drives me nuts for some reason.

I have been faithfully watching this reboot of the original series. While I will always love the original series and saw every one of its episodes, this too has been entertaining and humorous. Sometimes Jack’s actions are annoying as his personality doesn’t change much. And I honestly liked their original boss versus Maddie, as Maddie is constantly irritated it feels like with everthing. I wish they’d make her more of a compassionate woman. Nevertheless, it would be awesome if they would make Mac’s father the original Macguyver.

Great series, yes you leave your brain at the door but you did that with the original and yes all foreign countries they travel to looks like the same country lane, no other cars, people etc but it's finding it's feet and hopefully it will last a couple more series yet.

1st half of season 1 was good. After that it was terrible. The writing was so lazy. They abandoned reality completely. Stopped even explaining MacGyver's actions. Jack is so annoying. I did like Riley. Not enough to keep me watching.

Nowhere near as good as the original. I made it 1 episode and i was out.
