Meanwhile, in an interview with NBC Insider, Weeks discussed how she and the crew film the intense stunts on the show. 

"We do any fight sequences — with the doubles also doing, so we don’t have to do [it] too many times and risk injury,” she told us when asked if she does her own stunts. 

All about Magnum and Higgins's romance on Magnum P.I.

In an interview with NBC Insider, showrunner Eric Guggenheim explained why he and the writers enjoyed getting Magnum and Higgins officially together in Season 5.

“We never get tired of writing those banter-y scenes together, where they're kind of poking at each other a little bit. That kind of banter, that back and forth, is just a lot of fun,” he said.

He also talked about what gives the couple their special spark. “What's fun is that these are two very different people. They have similar experiences and similar trauma in their past, and that connects them, but their approach as investigators, they have different approaches. Their personalities are a little different. Magnum is romantic and more of a risktaker and Higgins is very guarded. If you had two characters who are very similar, it would make for a very boring relationship and some very boring scenes. But because these characters are so different that just makes for fantastic chemistry."

He continued: "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."
