The latest reboot of “MacGyver” has been blown to smithereens.
CBS’ reboot of its classic 1985 series will conclude with its fifth season finale on April 30.
“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,” CBS Entertainment chief Kelly Kahl said in a statement about the cancellation. “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.”
The series star Lucas Till took to social media to share their reactions to the action series ending.
“Where to begin? The past five years have been what I will look on later as THE most formative years of my life,” he wrote on Instagram. “Lots of tough, lots of love. I made life long friends, actually no, family. I learned to push myself to new limits, breaking through and through and through. Was nervous to take up the mantle of an icon and you guys allowed me into your homes and accepted me.”
“But this is also a love letter to my cast and crew, to those who have been with us since day 1 or day 1000, through those oppressive summer days in the Georgia heat, where the humidity envelopes you like a warm sweater to the below freezing winter days,” Till wrote.
