It’s often quite tricky to reboot a classic piece of work and expect similar popularity as the original one. But ‘MacGyver’ did it and did it well! After running for three long seasons, the show is back on CBS with the fourth installation, following more adventures of the Phoenix Foundation.

Release Date

MacGyver uses his unique and unconventional skills and extensive scientific knowledge to solve problems. His team comprises Jack Dalton, a former CIA, Patricia Thornton, an ex-field agent turned director of operations, and Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder.

He also happens to have a sidekick of a roommate who keeps MacGyver entertained and becomes his blackboard at times.
