Plot Synopsis

MACGYVER, a reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus 'Mac' MacGyver, who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives. Joining his team on high-risk missions around the globe is maverick former CIA agent Jack Dalton; Patricia Thornton, ex-field agent turned director of operations; and Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer. Under the aegis of the Department of External Services (DXS), MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip. In the season opener, "The Rising," Mac and Jack join forces to recover a missing bioweapon that has the ability to destroy hundreds of thousands of people with one single drop.

On Friday, April 14, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, CBS premiered the Season 1 finale of MACGYVER. In the season ender, "Cigar Cutter," Murdoc moves forward with his plans for revenge against MacGyver by recruiting his recently released former cellmate to infiltrate the Phoenix Complex as a 'lab technician' and kill every agent inside. Three weeks earlier -- on Thursday, March 23 -- CBS renewed MACGYVER for a second season.
