The moustache is gone. But the red Ferrari is back.

In a battle of the ‘80s reboots among networks, CTV announced a slate Thursday that includes Magnum P.I., the Hawaiian shot detective procedural featuring Tom Selleck.

Jay Hernandez (Scandal, The Expanse) stars as Thomas Magnum, a former navy SEAL who returns home from Afghanistan to become a private investigator, living at the palatial home of his friend Robin Masters. The first show ran from 1980 to 1988 on CBS.

Also announced was a new half hour comedy Jann, starring musician Jann Arden as a fictionalized version of herself, and the fourth season of North Bay shot drama Cardinal. The broadcaster also announced a multi-year agreement to broadcast Canada’s Walk of Fame which previously aired on Global.

Bell Media’s CTV, Canada’s largest private network, was the final broadcaster to announce their wares this week to advertisers and media, following the CBCCITY and Corus.
