As soon as Magnum P.I. The finale of season 4 came to a close, the audience was expecting season 5, when season 4 was declared as the final season, the audience’s hopes were dashed. After the cancellation, the fanbase quickly came together to support the drama, again followed by Magnum P.I. by dedicated fans. #SaveMagnumPI campaign was started and the result of which was finally found.
Following the cancellation of the CBS series in May, NBC recently announced a two-season renewal, which came as a huge surprise to the cast and fans around the world. Fortunately, soon after, wonderful news arrived. The actor who played the title character, Jay Hernandez, has since issued a heartfelt letter to fans in response to the information.
Shortly after the cancellation, it was stated that Universal TV, the show’s production company, was pitching the show to various networks in an effort to revive it. Things looked positive for a while when talks with USA Network or NBC appeared to be open, but it took some time for a contract to finally materialize.

So many people worked very hard to make this happen. CBS, Universal, Magnum execs & all you fans out there. The tremendous effort paid off in a very unlikely move for any TV show. We can't wait to start filming again. 🙏🏽 #MagnumPISaved #NBC #ohana ❣️ https://t.co/Jz7JAZN3Mi
