Good news for the duct-tape business: CBS's "MacGyver" is returning for a third season.

The show, shot in metro Atlanta, stars Marietta's Lucas Till as MacGyver along with "CSI" vet George Eads.

Deadline.com noted that the revived "MacGyver' draws a solid 8.5 million viewers a week and has done well internationally.

CBS also renewed its fellow Friday shows "Hawaii Five-O" and "Blue Bloods." Other shows getting cleared: "Bull," "NCIS: New Orleans," "NCIS: Los Angeles," "Madam Secretary," "Survivor," "The Amazing Race," "60 Minutes" and "48 Hours." Six other shows had previously gotten a thumbs up for 2018-19: "The Big Bang Theory," "Young Sheldon," "Mom," "NCIS," "SEAL Team," and "S.W.A.T."
