If you were anxious about who would be cast as the lead in the new Magnum P.I. reboot, don't worry — it's handled.

Scandal alum Jay Hernandez has been tapped to play the titular character in this latest blast from the past. In the updated version, Thomas Magnum is a decorated ex-Navy SEAL fresh off a return from Afghanistan. Once back home, he decides to use his military expertise to build a new career as a private investigator.

Hernandez's other credits besides Scandal include Nashville, and The Expanse. The role of Thomas Magnum was originally played by Tom Selleck.

CBS went a little nostalgia-crazy this year, also ordering pilots for a Cagney and Lacey reboot and a Murphy Brown revival. The chances that all three '80s throwbacks gets picked up is slim, but if so, CBS is going to have one nostalgic 2018-2019 lineup.
