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.
No man has done more with less.
Did You Know?
At the Wales Comic Con in 2019, MacGyver
(1985) star Richard Dean Anderson
was asked if he had seen MacGyver
(2016). He said, "I have, and I'm not real crazy about it, I'll be honest. They approached me early on. They'd done a testing for the show and found it wasn't as attractive as they wanted it to be, so they called and asked if I wanted anything to do with it, and I said no. It's a business, but ... I don't think they've been fair or true to the series. They're shooting up everybody and there's so much going on that you don't see the thought-process that we prided ourselves on. You know, MacGyver sees the problem, he sees solutions to the problem, you see him gathering the solution, and then solving the problem. In this new one, it's boom-boom-boom, and it happens so fast."
