It is in the works, kids. The reboot comes from Peter Lenkov, who successfully revived Hawaii Five-0 and MacGyver, and Davis Peter Lenkov. The series will feature the same characters as the original except Higgins will be a female character – Juliet Higgins.
The reboot will be co-written by Lenkov and Eric Guggenheim, Magnum P.I. The two will executive produce with John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment. CBS TV Studios co-produces with rights holder Universal TV.
The series will follow ex-Navy SEAL Thomas Magnum who returns from Afghanistan and repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. He is assisted by fellow vets Theodore “TC” Calvin and Orville “Rick” Wright, as well as that of disavowed former MI:6 agent Juliet Higgins.
Let’s see where this one goes. Stay tuned, kids..
