George Eads‘ MacGyver exit is nigh, and CBS has released a spoiler-heavy promo that tees up Jack Walton’s departure from Phoenix Foundation.
In the Feb. 1 episode, Jack is sent on an open-ended mission to track down one of the world’s most dangerous terrorists. Before he leaves, he takes Mac aside to “say goodbye to a good friend.”
Eads - Role - Year - Midway - Production
As previously reported, Eads decided to leave his co-starring role late last year, midway through production on the CBS reboot’s third season. He stormed off the series’ Atlanta set back in October following an unspecified altercation during production. Once he returned, he asked to be released from his long-term contract in order to return to Los Angeles (where his young daughter resides).
This marks Eads’ second premature exit from a CBS procedural....
