CBS Announced The Release Date For MacGyver Season 3

MacGyver on CBS

Critics have negatively received this action-adventure series. However, it seems that CBS more focuses on a response from the target audience than on the reviews from critics. MacGyver managed to survive last season on CBS. Finally, on April 18, the broadcaster officially confirmed that MacGyver had been renewed for another round.

The decision mostly depended on two primary factors, in our opinion. First, the 2nd installment of MacGyver has received mainly favorable reviews from the viewers. Secondly, the show kept steady ratings in its sophomore round. However, it’s worth noting that MacGyver, nonetheless, has lost over 38% of viewers during the recent premiere.

But yet, the figures were acceptable. The second season debut has garnered 6.692 million viewers with a 0.82 demo rating among adults 18-49. The viewership was close to a mark of seven million viewers per episode during the entire season. So, the thirteenth episode has even won 8.141 million viewers with a 1.03 key demo (P18-49). Having witnessed such an uptrend, CBS opted to give one more chance for this action-adventure series in Season 3.

As mentioned above, the reaction of the viewers was much better this season. On Rotten Tomatoes, MacGyver holds a score of 4.2/5 and a 79% approval rating. Meanwhile, on Metacritic, the show’s score is 4.4/10, among the viewers. At the same time, an overall score of MacGyver on IMDb is average, 5.1/10 ~ 12,000 votes.

Summing up, despite such a drop in the viewership, CBS still considers the statistics of MacGyver acceptable. Moreover, we don’t rule out that this show could return for one more season on CBS. MacGyver fits into the network’s prime-time lineup. As a result, the broadcaster is interested in supporting this show.

What’s The Show MacGyver About?

If you have not watched MacGyver on CBS for any reason, we suggest you read a brief overview of this action-adventure series below. Or you might scroll down to learn more about the possible release date for the upcoming season.

The story focuses on Angus MacGyver, a young war hero who possesses extraordinary skills for nonstandard issues solving. Mac is an experienced expert in many branches. Such abilities allow him to act unexpectedly using improvised means instead of regular spy stuff. MacGyver created his agency which assists the government to cope with high-risk missions across the globe. His primary goal thereby is to save human lives and even states against various high-scale threats. Fortunately, Mac’s knowledge of science is only limited by his creativity. As a result, there is no mission he can’t cope with.

Season 3 Release Date

As we have mentioned above, CBS has picked up MacGyver for one more season. According to the official data, the action-adventure series will return for another round on Friday, September 28, 2018 at 8/7c.
