I was not a fan of Nancy Kiu's writing. More than once I wondered if she knew the show's title. I wish her well but I'm not sorry if she leaves.

I'm not sure if she's leaving, though.

I just saw that she tweeted about "Batwoman" coming to CW this Fall and that people congratulated her.

I assume people don't stay on 2 different writings teams during the same season, so I guess if she has a writing gig on a new show, she won't stay on the Reboot. Though of course, it's possible that they can still use one of her scripts for an episode. Season 3 had scripts from writers that only wrote a single episode and weren't part of the main writing team. Also possible that she gets a writing credit if they use one of her storylines from another season... or one of her characters? I'm not sure how that works.

Wasn't she listed as a producer on MacGyver as well? They didn't announce anything, but I guess that means that one of the other writers will be a producer or they'll add someone else.


So we have a new Co-Showrunner, new producers and different writers. The show will definitely be retooled a bit and go in a different direction. Curious how much it will change... There were already so many changes in the cast, I'm not sure if another creative direction on top of that will help the ratings. It could be a good thing, but also make it even worse hmm.bmp

That's always a sign you might be in trouble if your dashboard is on fire...

I wonder how much studio heads interfere. It makes me feel that they wanted to follow every other procedural. The more cast members the better, like they have a set number. Was Cage necessary? No. Was Leanna necessary? No. Bozer a field agent? No. He belongs in the lab. and how did he become Sparky's programmer? hmm.bmp
They need to concentrate on Mac and his skills.

Is there a way you can identify each writer on an episode (besides the credits of course)?

Well... You can check the start of each episode post here. We have information and credits listed.

You can also check our episode listings which have the writers of each episode.

You can also check IMDB where you can see credits of each episode.

According to Lenkov's Insta stories, they're having production meetings for Magnum today. I'm a bit jealous dry.gif

Lenkov rarely mentioned MacGyver during the full season. If he mentions it at all this season I'll be surprised. and then he objects to Mac fans calling him on his preference. I may be wrong but that's the impression I got from the few times I checked his twitter.
