So 'MacGyver' fans, the show won't be airing a new episode on March 20. But worry not, the show will be back with Season 4 Episode 7 'Mac + Desi + Riley + Aubrey' on March 27 instead.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, production on the show has been stopped and the season has been shortened to 20 episodes instead of the planned 22. However, this week-long break was already scheduled ahead of that decision to make room for March Madness, which has also unfortunately been canceled.  

But despite all this, Episode 7 should still be a pretty good watch once it arrives as it will see Angus "Mac" MacGyver (Lucas Till) and Desi Nguyen (Levy Tran) finally take their newly-rekindled relationship one step forward by going on a date, even if it is a double date with Riley Davis (Tristin Mays) and her new boyfriend Aubrey (Leonardo Nam). Unfortunately, there won't be much time for romance as the synopsis for the episode reveals that Mac and Desi are going to end up witnessing a murder.

There's been a long-running fan theory that Aubrey might secretly be working for Codex, which if trues is bound to be pretty devastating for Riley. Hopefully, the episode will give us some insight into the character and finally reveal whether this really is the case or not.

Here's the synopsis for the upcoming episode: "A double date descends into chaos when Mac and Desi witness a murder in the back of the restaurant, and as they work to find the killer, Riley tries to keep the secret about her and her friends’ 'day jobs' from her new boyfriend, Aubrey."

Instead of Season 4 Episode 7, CBS will be airing a re-run of Season 3 Episode Episode 18 'Murdoc + Helman + Hit', featuring guest star David Dastmalchian as the classic 'MacGyver' anti-heroic character Murdoc. 

The cast of 'MacGyver' Season 4 includes Lucas Till as Angus “Mac” MacGyver, Tristin Mays as Riley Davis, Justin Hires as Wilt Bozer, Meredith Eaton as Matty Weber, Levy Tran as Desi Nguyen, and Henry Ian Cusick as Russ Taylor. Guest stars for Episode 7 include Leonardo Nam, Tate Donovan, David Shae, Devon Sawa, David E. Collier, Angela Zhou, Dwayne Boyd, and Rob Guimarra.

'MacGyver' Season 4 airs Fridays at 8 pm ET, exclusively on The CW.
