'Seal Team' Season 4
The series is a military drama that follows both the professional life and the interpersonal relationships of an elite unit of the Navy Seals. Like most policing shows, audiences get to see how the team trains and follow through with dangerous missions. Deason 3 ended with a cliffhanger between Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz) and Mandy Ellis (Jessica Paré) with fans wondering if #Jandy could finally be a thing. Not to mention, the team, with Ray Perry (Neil Brown Jr) as a lead will work on the intel they've received about HVT Asim al-Hazred’s location. Intresintingy enough, the series will be one of the few shows related to policing that will not have the Covid-19 pandemic embedded into their storyline. For some viewers, this could be a breath of fresh air.
'Seal Team' Season 4 premiers on December 2, 2020, with two episodes starting at 9 pm EST on CBS
'MacGyver' Season 5
The series according to CBS is "a reimagining of the classic series" chronicles the life of Angus "Mac" MacGyver, who has created a "clandestine organization" within the United States government. He has immense talent and a huge knowledge base on anything scientific which he uses to not only deter problems that come his way but also saved many lives. According to reports, fans are expecting to see more between Riley and Mac as they wait for Season 5. As for Bozer, fans are hoping that they get to see him to "solo" missions. Not to mention, Codex, a global eco-terrorist organization, is also a huge plotline and a threat, even though Gyver and Phoenix Foundation had defeated Codex before. The previous season finale also saw the death of Codex leader Gwendolyn Hayes (Jeri Ryan) and Mac's aunt. Even though many thought that Gwendolyn was the leader, it turns out that there are people above her -- Leland (Tobin Bell) and the Codex council. The question is now how will Mac take on Codex considering his aunt has passed? We can only wait and watch.

'Magnum P.I.' Season 3
The series is a reboot of the original classic 1980s series of the same name that had starred Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum. The reboot follows decorated former Navy SEAL, Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez), who "repurposes" his learned military skills to become a PI. The end of Season 2 saw Francis 'Ice Pick' Hofstetter, Rick's father ends up getting wounded after he decided to go through with a robbery with a jail friend. He didn't want to go to the hospital, and Katsumoto explained to Rick all that could go wrong if his father didn't get treated. Finding the murder has become key now! So, we're expecting season 3 to push into that. Of course with all dramas there is a love story to be told -- in this case, we're wondering if Magnum and Juliett Higgins (Perdita Weeks) could be a thing?
