Thomas Magnum worked his last case at CBS.
The network canceled its MagnumPI Restart after four seasons. The series is among four cancellations the network announced Thursday; comedy sophomore B Positive and beginners Good Sam and how we roll are also ready.
The four join another sophomore comedy, United States of Al (what like B Positive comes from Chuck Lorre) when he got the ax from CBS.
Aside from a shocker out of left field, MagnumPI will likely be the highest-rated series to be canceled this season. Shot (and filmed) in Hawaii, the drama starring Jay Hernandez has averaged about 7.4 million viewers — comfortably leading Friday — and has a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 this season.
CBS Studios produces in association with Universal Television. Eric Guggenheim, Barbie Kligman, John Davis, Justin Lin and John Fox. Peter Lenkov developed the reboot and ran its first two seasons before being fired and released from an overall contract with CBS Studios.
B Positive was one of four shows Lorre had on CBS that season. With his cancellation and that of United States of Al, this number has been halved. Young Sheldon and Bob Hearts Abishola will return in 2022-23.
B Positive underwent a creative overhaul prior to season two to focus more on Annaleigh Ashford’s character. Warner Bros. TV, where Lorre lives, produces the series; Lorre executive produces with Jim Patterson and Warren Bell.
Medical drama Good Samwith Sophia Bush and multi-camera comedy how we roll, starring Pete Holmes, were both at the low end of CBS’ ratings this season. Both are from CBS Studios.
Katie Wech, Jennie Snyder Urman, Joanna Klein, Frank Siracusa and John Weber executive produce Good Sam. How we roll’s EPs are Mark Gross and Brian d’Arcy James; David Hollander also served as executive producer.
With the cancellations, CBS has now decided the fate of all of its current scripted series. The network has yet to announce any new series orders for 2022-23.
