'Magnum P.I.' likely to return in production from August of this year.
Since Hawaii is not a hotspot for coronavirus, CBS is hoping to reboot 'Magnum P.I.'s production for the third season this August. Deadline reported the producers of the series are looking to start shooting new episodes.
The show's filming is likely to start from mid-August. The state, which has seen the least coronavirus cases since the beginning of the pandemic, is giving hope to the producers.
The Hawaii Department of Health reported only 24 new cases, giving a total of 999 total cases ever since the pandemic started. Currently, there are only 224 active cases, and only 19 deaths have been reported so far.
