CBS announced today that Magnum P.I. has been renewed for a second season. The early pickup comes in the midst of the action drama's freshman run.

The updated take on the 80s classic series premiered last fall as part of the network's 2018-2019 lineup. It was only a few weeks later that its episode count was topped up to a full season's worth. The show has been drawing decent viewership, though it hasn't been a standout in either ratings or reviews.

Magnum P.I. follows security consultant Thomas Magnum, who works as a private investigator in Hawaii making a name for himself by taking cases nobody else will. Along with help from a team of fellow vets, Magnum utilizes his military skills to make a name for himself while on all sorts of sun-drenched adventures.
