A reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus "Mac" MacGyver, who creates the Department of External Services (DXS), 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, an 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, 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. Written by CBS

Did You Know?


In March 2016, George Eads was cast as Lincoln, a government employee with great capability for compassion, who could easily be written off as an eccentric conspiracy theorist. In the original pilot, Joshua Boone, Addison Timlin, and Michelle Krusiec were cast as Gunner, MacGyver's best friend from high school, Mickey, an app developer who is aggressively progressive in her political views, with a soft spot for MacGyver, and Agent Croix, Lincoln's sister who works for the Department of Homeland Security. In June 2016, Eads's character was renamed Jack Dalton. See more »

User Reviews

Good remake overall
3 November 2018 | by jimjames1See all my reviews

It is similar to the original but other than MacGyver, the rest of the characters seem to be way over the top. His buddy who tries to save him and thinks with his fists instead of his head (reminds me of "Danny" in the new Hawaii Five O). And having the little person as the boss does not seem feasible although I have seen this actress in other roles on other TV shows. I liked her better in the other shows (Boston Legal) than in MacGyver. I will give this show a chance because I like the main character. I hope the supporting actors do not bring the show down.
