Today’s announcement that the CBS crime drama is restarting MacGyver was nearing the end of his run at the end of the month, leaving fans and cast members with mixed feelings. Top of the list were series star Lucas Till and Justin Hires, who posted “thank you” posts for capturing their emotions at the moment.
Till left his message on Instagram, including Nellie Andreevas Deadline clips that broke the story’s end to the series.

All of you.”
He was joined by castmate Justin Hires in farewell.
