CBS announced today that Magnum P.I. has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes two days ahead of the drama's sophomore finale, which airs on May 8 with back-to-back episodes.

The updated take on the 80s classic series premiered in 2018 and has become a decent performer for the network on Friday nights.

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.
