It is being reported by Deadline that Magnum P.I. has been revived by NBC. The news comes just over a month after the action drama was cancelled by original network CBS after four seasons. The pickup is said to be for a total of 20 episodes that will air over the span of two seasons, serving as Seasons 5 & 6.

The updated take on the 1980s classic series premiered in 2018 and was a decent performer on Friday nights over the course of its run. The show aired a total of 76 episodes before it was cancelled less than a week after its final episode on CBS.

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.
