TF1 is broadcasting the end of season 3 of “Magnum” this evening. From next Tuesday, the series will give way to “Koh Lanta”. But, do not panic, the private detective played by Jay Hernandez will return soon since a season 4 is being filmed.
Broadcast in France since July 27, season 3 of Magnum is already ending tonight on TF1. The channel will indeed offer from 9:05 p.m. the last four episodes of this unprecedented third batch, which will notably see Magnum (Jay Hernandez) and Higgins (Perdita Weeks) set out in search of the mother of an abandoned baby and investigate a murder that has not yet been committed with the help of a clairvoyant.
On the private side, the heroes of the series will also have to face unexpected events. In the penultimate episode, “Mortal Hike”, Magnum will receive a visit from his uncle Bernardo who will make him a major revelation about his mother. While the season finale will see Higgins contemplate his future with Ethan (Jay Ali).
But that fans of the reboot of the cult series of the 80s rest assured: the adventures of Thomas Magnum, Higgins, Rick, and TC do not end there since the American channel CBS renewed last April Magnum for a season 4.
After a season 3 shortened to 16 episodes (compared to 20 for the first two) due to the Covid-19 epidemic which delayed filming and broadcasting, the police series led by Jay Hernandez will return on October 1 on CBS in the States -Unis for a season 4 which began filming on July 26 in Hawaii.
And if we do not yet know the number of episodes that will have this fourth season of Magnum, the official Twitter account of the writers of the series has already revealed a little information about this new salvo: an episode should return on the childhood of at least one of the heroes through flashbacks. Will it be Magnum, Higgins, or Rick? Response soon.
In France, season 4 will not be broadcast before current 2022 on TF1, although no precise date has yet been revealed. As of next Tuesday, Magnum will leave its place in Koh Lanta: the legend, an anniversary season of the adventure game presented by Denis Brogniart which will bring together former emblematic adventurers who marked the history of Koh Lanta.
