CBS Reveals 'MacGyver' Will End With Season Five; Series Finale Will Air This Month

Sad news for MacGyver fans – the show will be ending after season five, Deadline reports.

The show was averaging 5.85 million viewers and a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating (most current) this season under new showrunner Monica Macer.

“All of us at CBS are extremely grateful for the incredible work and dedication from Lucas and the rest of the cast, as well as Monica, the writers and the entire crew,” Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment, shared in a statement. “The MacGyver team traveled far and wide to repeatedly save the world with little more than bubble gum and a paper clip and made this show distinctly their own. We’re gratified we get to give this dedicated and loyal fan base the opportunity to say goodbye to their favorite characters in the thoughtful manner this series deserves.”

MacGyver starred Lucas Till, Tristin Mays, Justin Hires, Meredith Eaton, Levy Tran and Henry Ian Cusick.

The series finale will bow on April 30 at its normal time at 8/7c, and has already been filmed. Here are more CBS shows that are ending this year…

The current series was a re-imagining of the 1985 drama and centered on Angus “Mac” MacGyver (Till), who is part of a clandestine organization within the U.S. government, where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem-solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives.

Under the aegis of the Phoenix Foundation, MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip.

'MacGyver' Stunt Coordinator Suffers Head Injury on Set

Stunt coordinator Justin Sundquist (not pictured), who works on the CBS show MacGyver, sustained a “head injury while performing a stunt that resulted in him falling off a moving vehicle,” THR is reporting. He’s in a medically induced coma and in the hospital at this time.

“We have learned about an injury to stunt coordinator Justin Sundquist that occurred late Monday on the set of MacGyver in Atlanta,” CBS TV Studios said in a statement. “The production team is cooperating with the authorities investigating the accident, and our primary concern at this time is Justin’s health and well-being.”

If you don’t know, the stunt coordinator is usually the person on set responsible for the safety of the stunts, not the person performing the stunts.

Just last year, Justin sued CBS Corp. and CBS TV Studios for an injury on the set of Hawaii Five-0. The issue was settled outside of court.

Our thoughts are with Justin and his friends, family, and loved ones during this time.

MacGyver's Lucas Till Doesn't Have Time to Talk to Girls

Georgia native Lucas Till films his new series MacGyver in Atlanta, Georgia, but he has been so busy, he hasn’t had a chance to see any of his family!

“The show is called ‘MacGyver’ and I’ve got to be there every day,” the 26-year-old actor told the New York Post. “There are probably a lot of girls out there watching the show that I don’t have time to talk to.”

“He’s learning to cope without sleep and taking advantage of his trailer at lunchtime to take a nap,” series creator Peter Lenkov said of Lucas‘ dedication. “He’s learning to adjust his body chemistry. It’s exhausting as the lead of the show, but he’s gung-ho.”

Pictured below: Lucas on the set of the show on Saturday (November 12) in Atlanta, Ga.
