Coronavirus: 'MacGyver' stars Lucas Till and Levy Tran reveal production for Season 4 has been stopped
CBS is yet to make an official announcement about the season being shortened and how it might affect the show's weekly broadcast
Breaking the hearts of millions of fans, 'MacGyver' stars Lucas Till and Levy Tran have announced that CBS has halted production of the show and that Season 4 will be going on an indefinite break. The announcement was made through a video posted on Till's Instagram page.
"Hello everyone," Till wrote in the caption. "Normally this would take place at a wrap party or a last day or something but given the circumstances, this seemed like the best option. So to our crew— 'I think this the beginning of a beautiful friendship.' Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca (but also me, cause I mean that shizz)."
In the video (which you can check out here), we see Till and Tran sitting in front of a TV with the 'MacGyver' logo displayed on it. "Today we just found out that 'MacGyver' is shut down for the season so that is it for Season 4," Tran reveals in the clip. "Which kinda bums us out because we wanted... it was too early."
"It was really abrupt," Till chimes in. "And I said goodbye to a couple of people but I was in a rush to get home and that was my mission all day — to watch the episode. And I didn't really think about the fact that, you know, I'm not gonna see you guys for a couple of months."
The actors didn't specify whether the early end to the season is because of the Coronavirus epidemic but it does seem like the most logical reason. Till and Tran also took some time out to thank the crew for all their hard work in service of the show before ending the clip with an elbow rub.
CBS is yet to make an official announcement about the season being shortened and how it might affect the show's weekly broadcast but in either case, 'MacGyver' Season 4 was already scheduled to go on a break before the next episode airs. Hopefully, we should be getting more information before then.
'MacGyver' Season 4's next episode 'Mac + Desi + Riley + Aubrey' is scheduled to air on March 27, exclusively on CBS.
