Spoilers

Here is a wrap-up of all the news you need to know from Monday, December 18, 2023.

NBC’s Magnum P.I. will conclude with a two-hour series, finale it has been announced.

After ending 2023 with two episodes still in the can, there were questions about when the show would return.

TVLine has revealed that the two episodes will air back-to-back on Wednesday, January 3, 2024, beginning at 9 p.m. E.T.
