How to Watch ‘MacGyver’ Season 5 on CBS

By Gabriela Vatu / December 2, 2020

MacGyver is finally returning to screens for a fifth season. We couldn't be more excited to welcome back MacGyver into our homes, so let's see how to watch the new episodes online.

This is actually the second season to premiere this year after season 4 premiered in February 2020. The season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impossibility of finishing up filming, ending up with 13 episodes instead of the planned 22.

It is unclear at this point how many episodes this fifth season will have. Still, the pandemic has certainly thrown everyone in for a loop, especially as they had to respect all the necessary precautions for filming.

The show features Lucas Till, Tristin Mays, Justin Hires, Meredith Eaton, Levy Tran, and Henry Ian Cusick in the main roles.

When and Where to Watch MacGyver?

If you want to keep up with the fifth season of MacGyver, you should head over to CBS starting with December 4th. You'll be able to watch all the new episodes starting at 8:00 PM.

How Can I Live Stream MacGyver?

MacGyver is an original CBS show, so you're going to have to find a way to watch CBS online if you want to keep up with all the episodes. Thankfully, CBS All Access is a perfectly cool platform that the network created some years ago.

There are two subscription plans on CBS All Access, namely Limited Commercials and Commercial Free. Depending on how much you are willing to spend every month, you get to experience some ads or none at all.

If you're going to subscribe to CBS All Access, you should know that you will have access to a lot of original shows, as well as movies and series that CBS has created over the years - and that very important CBS live stream. You can enjoy CBS All Access on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, and many others.

While we do enjoy CBS All Access, if you want a live TV platform instead where you can watch even more channels live, you should try some of these other options.

fuboTV is one really cool platform that features CBS in the main bundle. The main bundle can be subscribed to individually, or you can go for one of the premade plans, where you will find extra channel packs and premium networks at discount prices. Start your free trial on fuboTV now!

Another option is Hulu, which has a single bundle to offer, where you will find CBS among dozens of other networks. You can add extra channel packs and premium networks to your account, as well as plenty of add-ons to expand the cloud DVR storage space capacity or the number of simultaneous streams. When you subscribe to the Live TV service on Hulu, you will also get access to that neat On-Demand service that they have. Start your free trial on Hulu now!


One thing you should know about CBS is that it's a network that broadcasts in select markets only, and that applies even when using live TV services. When you have a live TV service, however, you will be able to use a VPN and switch the city you appear to be in, so you get access to more content.

How to Watch MacGyver From Anywhere?

Those who are traveling abroad for any reason in the near future and want to keep up with MacGyver can do so even from another country if they have the right tools. You see, live TV platforms and streaming services from the United States are geo-blocked, so you can't watch anything as easily as you do when you are at home.

All of these issues can be fixed by using a VPN that can route your internet connection through a server of your choice and assign a new IP address to your device to match your chosen server's location. We recommend you use ExpressVPN, which is a really great tool that has thousands of servers to choose from all over the world.

You will have to subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF) and get the apps for your device before finding a server that is located in the United States. Next, you can go ahead and load CBS All Access, log in to your account, and start streaming the new episodes of MacGyver.

ExpressVPN has a 30-day money-back guarantee policy, so if you are unsure about subscribing to such a service, you should know that you can always get a refund if you have problems.

Can I Binge-Watch MacGyver?

If you want to watch the other seasons of MacGyver, you can definitely do that. You will need to subscribe to CBS All Access and stream all the really cool episodes from the previous seasons.

If you're only hoping to watch MacGyver the day after the show airs, you can also head over to the CBS website. You will need to log in to an account with the help of credentials from your TV provider to actually access any of the content.

Can I Purchase MacGyver Episodes?

In that case, you will find them all on several platforms, including Google PlayYouTubeAmazonVuduMicrosoft Store, or iTunes. We advise you to check all of them out just in case they have any discount that you may want to take advantage of.
