TVLine also speculated that the season’s filming would start in the latter half of 2022. The shooting started on September 19, 2022, with a customary Hawaiian blessing. The fact that the season is being written concurrently with the sixth season is excellent news.
What Can We Anticipate from Magnum PI Season 5?
A remake of the popular 1980s crime drama with the same name, Magnum P.I. stars Hernandez as Thomas Magnum, an ex-Navy SEAL who has transitioned into a slick-talking private investigator, according to NBC Insider.
When Magnum isn’t providing security advice to the enigmatic author Robin Masters, he and his devoted squad take on some of the craziest situations Hawaii has ever encountered. Picking up where Season 4 left off, Season 5 will surely have a bevy of adventures in Hawaii.
The fourth season’s concluding episode, “Close to Home,” showed viewers that Gordon’s ex-wife Beth had been kidnapped, and the kidnappers had demanded that Gordon kill his ex-partner Whelan, who was being held captive.
After realizing that the blackmailer was Ray Nasano, who killed Gordon’s sister Kim, Magnum and Higgins help Gordon free Whelan from custody. Beth is kept alive and Ray is apprehended, but Gordon is let go by the HPD. In the interim, Suzy gives birth to a girl. Higgins and Magnum kiss after professing their love for one another.
Who Will Return in Magnum PI Season 5?
Michael Rady has been cast in a recurring role as HPD Detective Chris Childs, beginning in the season premiere, according to a report from TVLine on October 3, 2022. The following is a list of the series’ primary cast members and a description of each character:
- Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum: A former Navy SEAL who is a security consultant for the successful novelist Robin Masters, living in the guest house on his estate and working as a private investigator.
- Perdita Weeks as Juliet Higgins: A former MI6 agent who is majordomo to Robin Masters; she and Magnum bicker but become allies.
- Zachary Knighton as Orville “Rick” Wright: A Marine veteran and former door gunner who runs his tiki bar and is also a playboy

Is There a Trailer for Magnum PI Season 5?
No, the network hasn’t made any Magnum P.I. Season 5 trailers available, and you probably won’t see any for a while. A few weeks before the launch, we anticipate the trailer to be released. Check out the fourth season in the interim.
It generally garnered positive reviews, with critics applauding the actors’ performances and the show’s aesthetics, which portray “An ex-Navy SEAL returns from Afghanistan and uses his military talents to become a private investigator in Hawaii.” Private eye Thomas Magnum was a former Navy SEAL.
He resides in Hawaii, in the multi-millionaire novelist Robin Masters’ home, managed by the former MI6 agent Juliett Higgins. Before watching the forthcoming episodes online, look at the official season 4 trailer below to review everything that happened.
