Interesting that it's 501.

Wonder where the "in the can" S4 episodes will fit in...

I'm assuming they'll just rename 4x14 into 5x01 and air the 6 already filmed episodes; then re-writing the 2 or 3 they weren't able to film and starting a new storyarc.

With the new safety protocol and guidelines, they won't be able to put in new episodes between stand-alone episodes that have already been filmed...

I wrote about them in my latest Reboot Update Blog Post.

The Hollywood Guidelines are similar to the Georgia Guidelines. I'm not sure if the Reboot has to follow the ones for Georgia only or if they'll also adapt to the ones for Hollywood (since the production studios are based in LA) in case they are stricter.

Not sure if this is valid. There's also no official source for this info: https://twitter.com/DemetreBhunter/status/1...264239076409344

But if they repeat all the Season 4 episodes first, it might work out in the end.

Looks like CBS is still trying to start MacGyver and Magnum at the same time - meaning they need 6 episodes of Magnum to be aired together with MacGyver... hmm.bmp

Sadly, I haven't even seen a "soft" date yet *sigh*...

I think besides "All Rise" and "MacGyver", all the CBS crime/drama shows have a date announced - interestingly both are shows with a sudden change of showrunnrers.

I guess with 5 or 6 episodes already available, MacGyver simply isn't a priority for CBS at the moment for start of production.

I guess the 5-6 episodes is why the actors aren't acting like they can't wait to shoot, but all this activity that's been goin on for months now I would have thought there would be something by now

If there's one thing I hoped they'ed changed after Lenkov left, it was the titles of the episodes dry.gif

But S-218... doesn't that mean Murdoc? hmm.bmp He was on set when they were filming last year, but this is a new filemed episode, not one from the vault, right?

yes, it looks like Murdoc will be back tongue.gif

David was on set when they filmed 4x11. But look at the date for the revisions and the production number. they were just done last month so this is an episode they haven't filmed yet.

Of course, it's possible they rewrote one of the scripts they didn't manage to film in Spring, so 4x21 or 4x22. I remember Jim Adler saying he was fired by Lenkov when the news broke about Lenkov being fired by CBS... so it's possible they rewrote either 421 or 422 or they rewrote another "leftover" script by him when he was still on board.

I think they might have changed the titles if they didn't have any leftover episodes of Season 4. Wonder how long they're willing to keep that up... they never show the titles after the opening credits though so guess it doesn't really matter to them. It's just getting really hard to remember them. I sorta stopped in Season 3...
