LOS ANGELES, May 19 (UPI) -- The "Mac is back" in the first trailer for CBS's upcoming reboot of MacGyver.

The clip, released Wednesday, features the resourceful hero reimagined in today's world and played by X-Men Apocalypse star Lucas Till with flowing long hair in place of the character's signature mullet.

A fan-favorite, the original MacGyver, which aired from 1985-1992, famously starred Richard Dean Anderson in the title role.

"A secret agent unlike any other, MacGyver escapes perilous situations with nothing but a paper clip, his trusty knife and his wit," reads the show's official synopsis.

"A dynamic reimagining of the hit TV series, this action packed origin story follows a young hero as he undertakes missions to save lives and change the world."

Also starring George Eads as MacGyver's witty partner and Joshua Boone as his best friend Gunner, the show is set to premiere on CBS this fall.
