Macgyver Season 6 Plot

Since the show’s demise was revealed after the last episode was filmed, the season five finale of Macgyver left viewers with several unanswered questions.

Thankfully, producer Monica Macer recently announced what she would have put into a sixth season, revealing that she intended to break up Mac and Desi (Levy Tran) to go to Riley and Mac’s route to stay together.

“We had planned a few additional episodes for the next season. We desired to do a Black Hawk Down part where we take up the bond of Desi’s partner who had died — or so she believed — but we find out at the beginning that he is a POW, and we go on a mission.

“This was our plan to separate Mac and Desi (Levy Tran) and open a door for Riley. After several discussions with the studio, it seemed more like a Desi episode than a Mac episode. Therefore, we decided to move it to the first or second episode of Season 6, opening the door for Mac and Riley.”

She noted that getting Mac and Riley together was “always the goal” and that had there been a sixth season, audiences would see them become a couple.
