CBS' 'MacGyver' to End After 5 Seasons

CBS has today announced that the current fifth season of its original drama series MacGyver will be its last. The series finale will air on Friday, April 30 at 8/7c.

The drama stars Lucas Till, Tristin Mays, Justin Hires, Meredith Eaton, Levy Tran and Henry Ian Cusick.

Monica Macer serves as showrunner for the fifth and now final season. She executive produces with Henry Winkler, David Straiton, James Wan, Lee David Zlotoff and Michael Clear. CBS Studios and Lionsgate Television produce.

"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," said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. "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."

This is the third veteran series CBS has said will be ending this year - joining NCIS: New Orleans after seven seasons and Mom after eight seasons. The broadcast network has also recently renewed Young Sheldon for three additional seasons. Bob Hearts Abishola, The Equalizer, FBI, FBI: Most Wanted and The Neighborhood have also already been renewed for another year.
