MacGyver Season 5
MacGyver Season 4 was shut down early, and the season didn’t have a chance to end when it was supposed to. It was a sudden shutdown with no warning.
It is not clear how many episodes didn’t air. The first three seasons featured 21, 23, and 22 episodes. The fourth season concluded after just 13 episodes, so a lot was remaining for the season.
The season ended with the Codex threat still in play, and while the leader of the group Gwendolyn (Jeri Ryan) died, her replacement in Leland (Tobin Bell, Saw) is there now to make MacGyver’s life a living hell.
Here is how CBS described what fans could expect from the Season 5 premiere of MacGyver.
Mac and the team infiltrate a glamorous hotel used as an international hideout for criminals to find a woman with vital information on Codex. However, their target has a new secret identity, including a completely new face, on the fifth season premiere of MACGYVER, Friday, Dec. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Guest stars for the Season 5 premiere of MacGyver include Jessie T. Usher (Vincent), Jean Brassard (Egor), Annabelle Acosta (Paula), Enzo D’Agata (Luis), Vannessa Vasquez (Jane/Fake Paula), Juan Pablo Gamboa (Gustavo Salazar), Eugenie Bondurant (Susie), and Brittany Pena (Doorwoman).
MacGyver Season 5 premieres on Friday night, December 4, at 8/7c on CBS.
