MacGyver premiered in 2016 as a reboot of the 1980s series starring Richard Dean Anderson as an agent for the Department of External Services. With knowledge from his work in physics and his time in the U.S. Army Special Forces, MacGyver would use simple everyday items to construct complex tools needed to solve even more complex problems. The popularity of the show even led to the word “MacGyver” becoming something of a verb in its own right.
MacGyver stars Lucas Till, Tristin Mays, Justin Hires, Meredith Eaton, Levy Tran and Henry Ian Cusick. The fifth and final season ends April 30 on CBS.
