They did the same thing in the new Lost in Space. Where Dr. Zachary Smith is a lady. And no explanation for why one of the daughters is white and the other is black. These shows do a horrible job at casting.

It's all about inclusion and to leave nobody out or behind and appeal to the current generation.

Same thing happened in the Battlestar Galactica reboot, where Starbuck became a woman. Dirk Benedict was the original, and Katee Sackhoff was in the reboot.

When I read this, I assumed the original Higgins had a sex change.

Well, the best reason I can think of is that John Hillerman and Jonathan Harris would be IMPOSSIBLE acts to follow. They were beyond mere character actors in their respective shows, and in fact truly carried their show.

I've read about an 80s or 90s non-sports show with members of the Lost in Space cast present to sign autographs. "Everyone" wanted Jonathan Harris, and the others were "just there", which infuriated them.

I really love the original Magnum P.I., and immensely enjoy Tom Selleck as Magnum, but I'll tell ya this---without John Hillerman an episode dragged and was pretty much a dud. --- Brian Powell

Maybe in this one Higgins is actually Robin Masters without a doubt
