Of course, things are different this year, since CBS turned off the crime drama during the May bloodbath. Fortunately, after weeks of fan campaigns to save the show— along with a billboard in Times Square- NBC stepped in and saved Magnum P.I. with the renewal of season 5, which is due to debut on the network in 2023. Filming of the new episodes began in earnest at the end of September, with the official Hawaiian blessing, and star Jay Hernandez has now shared his first photo of BTS. season.
While much of what fans can expect from Season 5 is still a mystery, although not super-hidden, given Magnum P.I. is not the most difficult series, Hernandez shared on Twitter a first-look shot with co-star Tim Kang at a rather familiar watering hole. Check it out below!
There’s nothing like a smiling Jay Hernandez in a flower-embroidered shirt to get the Magnum P.I. fans pumped up.

Magnum P.I. the cast, and in particular Stephen Hill, were extremely grateful to the fandom and its efforts, not only after the cancellation of CBS, but also for four years on this network, where it all reached such an impressive level. Not that NBC is taking a huge risk by acquiring Magnum P.I., since the statistics of viewers and ratings of season 4 would be a big plus for any network, assuming that the fandom really follows the series in its new home.
Hopefully, now that filming is officially in full swing, fans can expect to hear news about the casting of new faces that may appear on the islands in season 5. this moment, since we’ve probably already heard something like this.
So for now, without any bad news, Magnum P.I. Fans can look forward to new BTS photos from the cast and crew when Season 5 is ready. While waiting for his arrival, don’t forget about all the high-profile dramas currently airing on NBC, from the Chicago show to the Law & Order franchise.
