Season 5 of Magnum P.I. on NBC has been one for the books since its premiere in February 2023. We’ve seen our favorite “will-they-or-won’t-they” couple Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez) and Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks) finally get together and also got to watch the unfolding of some action-packed private cases. 

How to Watch

Watch Magnum P.I. Wednesday, October 4 at 9/8c on NBC and next day on Peacock.    

In an interview with NBC Insider, showrunner Eric Guggenheim gave us the inside details as to why he made the creative choice to make Magnum and Higgins official when he did.

“Heading into this season, we felt strongly that we had great stories," Guggenheim said. "Putting them together just gave us some great stories and great scenes that we wanted to explore. So we went forward with it. I have to say, it is, I think, really one of the best decisions we've ever made on the show. It’s really taking us to some interesting places. It has added a whole new dimension to the show that has been incredibly satisfying. And we believe that the fans are really going to enjoy it."
