One of the rebooted series that appeared to have gotten traction may return after all. “Magnum P.I.” was initially cancelled by CBS due to licensing agreements but it appears two networks are working on possibly keeping the show alive.

According to Deadline, talks are reportedly underway with NBC with USA Network also in the mix to air the series. However, there are also other options being considered which should be good news to fans who have been following the crime-drama TV series.

The interest from other networks to possibly continue “Magnum P.I.” is hardly surprising. The show has been a top performer for CBS and the following has been growing.

In its season-finale that aired on May 6, fans of “Magnum P.I.” were seeking closure on the relationship between Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez) and Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks). The two shared their true feelings towards each other, an abrupt conclusion to the promising rebooted TV series.

"That's a wrap! Time to hang up the Aloha shirt. Thanks to all the millions of fans who supported us, the crew who worked tirelessly and the cast who I now call family. Love y'all. See ya on the next one," Hernandez posted on Instgram after word got out about the cancellation of the series.

However, he could take all that back at some point especially if CBS finds a way to successfully move the beloved show on CBS’ rival network.

But assuming that it does materialize, it will be interesting how the series will continue. It is likely to pick up from that finale and build on the relationship of Magnum and Higgins.

It was unfortunately one of the many TV series that CBS decided to cut. Others included “United States of Al” and “B Positive.” Both ended after two seasons.

Also cancelled were “Good Sam” and “How We Roll.” The only ones renewed were “FBI,” “FBI: International” and “FBI: Manhunt.”
