Friday nights on CBS will start to look more familiar next month. The network has announced a December 4th return date for its trio of Friday night shows — MacGyver (season five), Magnum PI (season three), and Blue Bloods (season 11).
As reported earlier, due to the ongoing pandemic and production delays, Magnum PI and Blue Bloods are expected to have just 16 episodes this season. A tally for MacGyver hasn’t been announced but the show had just 13 installments in season four.
Here’s CBS’ announcement about the shows’ returns:
