Perdita Weeks and Guggenheim chatted about Magnum and Higgins' new relationship at NBC’s Television Critics Association panel in February 2023. 

"The rest of the season is showing where that goes, with two people who are meant for each other, but then having to navigate working together and being in dangerous situations," Weeks revealed (according to TV Guide). "[Higgins is] somewhat highly strung, [and] I thought she might be more jealous than she is. They've been very generous with her, seeing her interact with other people. It's actually going quite well thus far, so we'll see. It's definitely fun."
