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

An updated take on 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 solidify its time slot with consistency in total viewers and ratings.

Look for Season 5 of MacGyver to premiere as part of the 2020-2021 television season.
