The American channel CBS has just made an announcement that is as unexpected as it is brutal: season 5 of MacGyver, currently broadcast in the USA, will ultimately be the last. Also, take out your diary and make a note of it: this is the April 30th that will be proposed the very last episode of this reboot carried by Lucas Till.
The MacGyver series is canceled
An extremely close date that already poses a question: did the creators really have time to stage a real ending or will the series come to a hasty conclusion? If the first option seems the most credible, there was nothing to suggest the cancellation of MacGyver, Kelly Kahl (president of CBS) has yet promised the opposite.
“We are happy to be able to give our dedicated and loyal fan base the opportunity to say goodbye to their favorite characters in a sincere way, at the height of the series.“She said in a statement. We are waiting to see the result before getting carried away, but it remains reassuring.
Lucas Till reacts to the end
Otherwise, Lucas till also spoke following this cancellation. Extremely touched by this end, the interpreter of the genius handyman – who has yet suffered during filming, blame it on the behavior of Peter M. Lenkov, was grateful to this series, the fans and the whole team.
On the occasion of a very long message posted on Instagram, the actor notably declared, “These last 5 years have been the most formative years of my life. I made some real friends there, no, a family. I learned to push myself to new limits, to always go further. I was nervous to succeed an icon and you allowed me to enter your house and you accepted me. I’m the Roger Moore of the MacGyvers now. Thank you for your support. It’s also a love letter to the cast, the crew and everyone who has been with us from the start. Whether it’s through the suffocating summers in the heat of Georgia, where humidity envelops you like a thick sweater, or during freezing winters. But also through those moments when people said that we wouldn’t go beyond 13 episodes, through those difficult moments in my life where you have always managed to bring me joy, to continually grow and show me this. that it’s a real film crew. Thank you, my new family, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.”
The last episode has not even been broadcast yet, but we already have tears in our eyes …
