When will ‘Magnum PI’ Season 3 return? Here's what to expect from CBS' crime show after the Covid-19 break
The CBS action-adventure series is returning soon with production having started in August in Hawaii
CBS' action-adventure series 'Magnum PI' is returning soon with its production having already started. The series follows Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez), a private investigator and former Navy SEAL, who gets into crime-solving after returning home from Afghanistan. The show is a thrilling reboot of the 1980s series of the same name which ran for eight seasons and starred Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum. The present series stars Perdita Weeks as Juliett Higgins, Zachary Knighton as Rick, Stephen Hill as TC, Tim Kang as Detective Gordon Katsumoto and Amy Hill as Kumu as part of its huge ensemble cast.
Where we left off
In the finale of Season 2, Rick tries to stop his cancer-stricken surrogate father Francis 'Ice Pick' Hofstetler (Elisha Cook Jr) from doing something stupid. Icepick, who was prepared to do a last easy robbery with a jail mate, gets double-crossed and wounded. Then Icepick refuses to head to the hospital and Katsumoto confirms to Rick the risks if he stayed complicit by being silent. Meanwhile, Magnum, Higgins and TC all gear up to find the murderer, who is determined to eliminate all loose ends. Moreover, Magnum learns from Hawaii Five-0 contact Adam Noshimuri of a legal ‘Hail Mary’ that could resolve Higgins's visa situation but it proved to be a very costly affair. Magnum then decides to call Robin Masters for help who came up with an unorthodox solution that left Magnum with mixed feelings.
What we'd like to see
How will Magnum and Higgins help Rick when his father figure gets double-crossed? Will they catch the murderer? These are some pertinent questions likely to be answered in the upcoming season. Further, will Magnum and Higgins ever have a love story is another angle that makes us curious and want to watch the show. Like the previous two seasons of the story comprised of different mysteries to be solved by Magnum and his team this too could contain some new mystery with different challenges.
When is it returning
CBS’ action crime drama ‘Magnum PI,’ had been into production since mid-August. Until now, there is no tentative start date announced for its upcoming third season. However, the news of the show's shooting taking place in Hawaii is already hinting at good news regarding the show’s release. Let’s wait and watch. If not the rumored November 2020 release, we can hope for a new season in 2021.
