The ending of last season’s Magnum PI cliffhanger left everyone wondering if Perdita Weeks would return in Magnum PI Season 4 as Juliet Higgins or is this the end of her legacy. Well, things got a bit tricky between Juliette and Thomas Magnum. But the recent addition to the cast hints that Magnum will find a new love interest. However, her new partner seems to have so many stories buried deep inside her. Will he find out in Magnum PI Season 4? Let see!
The reboot of Magnum PI in the 1980s follows a former Navy SEAL turned private investigator, Thomas Magnum, who takes care of affairs in the Hawaiian realm. However, former M16 agent Juliet Higgins has been tasked with protecting the estate. But she quickly became Magnum’s partner in the second season. Although the series received a mixed response, it was quickly renewed for the fourth round.
Magnum PI Season 4: Extension of the cast
Black Lightning star Chantal Thuy recently joined Magnum PI Season 4. Thuy will play Lia Kaleo, a brilliant and savvy HPD sleuth who has buried several secrets within her. One of them understands his secret relationship with Thomas Magnum. She goes out with him behind everyone’s back. Even his partner Gordon Katsumoto has no idea. Thuy’s recent credits include Black Lightning, Pretty Little Liars, and Madam Secretary.
No doubt Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum will return with Zachary Knighton as Orville “Rick” Wright and Stephen Hill as Theodore “TC” Calvin. Amy Hill as Teuila “Kumu” Tuileta and Tim Kang as HPD Detective Gordon Katsumoto will also be back. In the previous season’s finale, Perdita Weeks, who plays Juliet Higgins, went to Kenya to be with her handsome Ethan (Jay Ali). However, the showrunner’s silence on her departure suggests she may return in season four.

. However, the timing got a little emotional as Magnum earlier confessed that he and Juliet are meant to be more than allies. But later he decided not to speak from his heart and wished Juliet the best. However, it would be intriguing to see how things play out when he returns.
Well, we saw the spark between the two, and now when Juliet found out about Magnum’s affair with Lia, it would definitely strain their relationship. Meanwhile, the writers teased on Twitter that someone’s past was about to explore. While they haven’t mentioned who that person might be, they do hint that it will delve into the childhood of one of the show’s regulars. So maybe an old friend would return who could help solve the current mystery behind the character’s life.
