CBS announced today that MacGyver has been picked up for a fourth season. The action-adventure series has continued to be a decent performer for the network in its Friday night time slot.

An update of the 1980s classic, the series was 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 in both total viewers and the adults 18-49 demographic.

Look for Season 4 of MacGyver to premiere this fall as part of the 2019-2020 television season.
