Magnum P.I. fans longing to revisit the contemporary reboot’s first four seasons should get ready to say aloha to Freevee, Amazon’s free streaming hub.
Seasons 1 through 4 of the Jay Hernandez and Perdita Weeks-led island drama will hit Freevee on Friday, Sept. 1, ending a long stretch during which those episodes were unavailable to stream anywhere. (NBC’s streaming sister, Peacock, only hosts the current and final season, No. 5.)

The second half of that fifth and final season — which was filmed long ago and was originally slated to not bow until early 2024 — instead will premiere on NBC on Oct. 4, airing Wednesdays at 10/9c (following new episodes of Quantum Leap, which got a jumpstart on Season 2 prior to the dual strikes).
As reported in late June, NBC — which stepped up to save Magnum after its CBS run got cut short after four seasons — opted not to order additional episodes beyond the second, 10-episode half of Season 5, given that cast options expire June 30 and no end to the Hollywood writers’ strike is in sight.
