The MacGyver cast in real life

Although we live in a modern world full of new invention and technological advancement, we just can’t seem to escape our love for the past and everything that makes us feel super nostalgic. Who’s with us? This love for nostalgia is affecting every aspect of our lives. Retro toys are coming back into fashion, vintage clothing is all the rage, and major TV networks are spending most of their money on rebooting classic TV shows, rather than spending their cold, hard cash on new and exciting shows.

Don’t get us wrong; we’re definitely not complaining. In fact, we’re super stoked! Nowadays, we have networks such as Netflix, ABC, The Disney Channel and NBC to thank for some of the new and improved reboots of some of our favorite classic shows such as the detective show, Magnum PI, the epic sitcom, Will & Grace, and even an upcoming reboot of the magical classic, Charmed. However, one of the best reboots to come out of this feeling of nostalgia came in 2016, when the action-adventure show, MacGyver, was rebooted by ABC.

Although Winkler served as the executive producer of the reboot, he also enlisted the help of hotshot Hollywood producers to bring this new and improved vision to life… and it’s safe to say they succeeded.
