No Season 6 for the action series reboot.
April 7, 2021
It is being reported that CBS has cancelled MacGyver after five seasons. The sad news comes ahead of action drama's upcoming finale on April 30, which will now serve as its series ender.
An updated take on the 1980s classic, the series was a surprise success for the network when it premiered in 2016. While initial expectations were decidedly low after an early panning by critics, viewers tuned in in solid numbers, helping CBS solidify its time slot over the course of its run.

I get it George Eads left to be with family so I cant fault the show for that but he was still one of the main characters and the back n forth between Mac n Jack was just classic stuff. It worked.
Then they brought in Desi, and shes alright but to then wedge in the romantic interest part too was just making things all awkward.
I initially wasnt too sure about this and expected it to be bad but it wasnt really bad on the surface.
One thing that was good about the original was that Mac didnt have a whole team behind him, it was just him and the things around him. With Riley to hack in anything, Desi to kick everyones ass, Bozer to do whatever he does, and Russ flying them private everywhere its just too many people.

They turned this show into a political platform and shoved their ideology down the throats of viewers that simply wanted to be entertained.Viewership dropped off a cliff and the powers that be blame the fans for being toxic when they quit watching and ratings plummet when in fact the writers and producers who took a great show and destroyed it.Happens to many great shows.Look how bad Star Trek discovery has gotten...its unwatchable now...they both are.

Couldn’t hold a flame to the original. No wonder RDA didn’t want any part of the reboot.

They took a good show and killed it by trying to turn it into a "woman hear me roar" type show. But then, they are killing all the good shows that way. I have a pretty extensive video library. I watch that now. Screw this crap anymore.

I'm sorry to hear about MacGyver
I think losing Jack was a mistake and Desi she's alright. It would have been better if Riley & MacGyver would have gotten together.

This sucks, they could at least let it have a proper ending

I liked this show a lot better early on in the first two seasons. I was not thrilled when Desi replaced Jack. I hate Mac and Desi being a couple. Boring. Also the whole Codex thing running thru each episode is blah. They should have stuck with individual stories that can be watched on their own without season long subplots. Ow well!

@Gregg Hadwyn It’s you’re. Here’s an example. If you’re going to be a jerk please use correct grammar. Thank you.

Wow so only two episodes left after tonight. That's too bad. I wonder if it will have any kind of satisfying ending.

I figured this show was done for when George Eads left and they kept going back to "Codex." That and constantly introducing family members just to kill them off.
