WATCH: Trailer arrives for CBS’ new Magnum series

May 25th, 2018 by Marc Comments

We have the trailer for the new Magnum series starring Suicide Squad star Jay Hernandez and it looks like a lot of fun… and really faithful to the original series: the cars, TC’s helicopter, Higgins – oh, no, wait, that part is different.

But overall, the series looks like fun and with the pilot episode being directed by Fast & Furious’ Justin Lin, we’ll be tuning in to give it a chance at the very least.

Still miss that moustache though.

The new series comes from Peter Lenkov, the man who brought back Hawaii Five-O and MacGyver and will follow Thomas Magnum (Hernandez), an ex-Navy SEAL, who returns from Afghanistan and used his military skills as a private investigator.

He will have help from two fellow vets, Orville ‘Rick’ Wright (Zachary Knighton) and Theodore ‘TC’ Calvin (Stephen Hill), plus a disavowed MI-6 agent named Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks). Magnum takes on the cases no one else can handle.

When decorated former Navy SEAL Thomas Magnum returns home to Hawaii, he embarks on a new mission: solving cases in style as a private investigator! With a modern take on the classic series, new drama Magnum P.I. joins the CBS fall lineup Mondays 9/8c.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
