Sebastian Nuzo will return from the dead on “Magnum: PI” as star Domenick Lombardozzi will come back for Episode 18.
TV Line got the scoop on the episode.
Executive producer Eric Guggenheim seemed to keep fans guessing while providing as few details as possible.
“It’s a very different kind of episode and unlike anything we’ve ever done before,” Guggenheim said. “We think it’s going to be pretty special, and we’re excited for everyone to see it.”
The skinny on the 46-year-old’s Lombardozzi’s appearance seems simple enough. Nuzo makes a posthumous return to the show as Magnum’s “dearly departed BUDS bud” in the episode.
TV Line said authorities connected Nuzo to a murder from four years earlier, and the ohana worked to prove his innocence. Magnum works to preserve his friend’s honor, looking to redeem himself from not saving Nuzo’s life.
