“Okay, I’m sure you’ve all heard the great news by now. Magnum PI picked up for a fifth season. Thank you to the fans for the huge effort,” he shared in the clip. “I mean, you had petitions, you have a billboard in Times Square. Because of all that noise you made, we now have a new house at NBC. See you in season 5!”
Lost also shared her love on Instagram, writing, “On to the Ohana on the platform.
Stephen tweeted “aloha nui loa a hui hou,” which translates to “i love you so much.” Hill also shared on Instagram that he is “so grateful to work with THESE people on THIS show and to create THE BEST FANS we could ever ask for!”
In the meantime, Zacharias spoke to ET and revealed that the entire cast is very excited.
“Yeah, I’ve talked to everyone, everyone was so excited about the show’s return,” he said. “We really love this show so much and honestly we couldn’t have done it without the fans. I mean, the fans were incredible. I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s amazing and it’s so moving and, you know, this one is for the fans, we’re just so, so excited.”
So many people have worked very hard to make this possible. CBS, Universal, Magnum executives and all the fans out there. The huge effort paid off in a very unlikely move for a TV show. We can’t wait to start filming again. #MagnumPISaved #NBC #ohana ❣️ https://t.co/Jz7JAZN3Mi
