Variety said pilots for the remakes have been ordered for the 2018-19 television season.

No casting has been announced yet.

The network is already the home of "S.W.A.T.," "Hawaii Five-0" and "MacGyver" reboots.

It also announced this week it has ordered more episodes of "Murphy Brown," with its original star Candice Bergen returning, more than a decade after the sitcom went off the air.

Deadline.com said the new "Magnum, P.I." will once again be a private investigator drama set in Hawaii, but this time will feature a female Higgins sidekick.

John Hillerman created the part and played it opposite Tom Selleck as the title character on the show, which ran 1980-88.

Set in Los Angeles, the police drama "Cagney and Lacey" aired 1982-88 and starred Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless.
