It was also announced that Meaghan Rath and Beulah Koale would join the series as new characters and new members of Five-0. On July 21, 2017, it was announced that recurring cast members Taylor Wily, Kimee Balmilero , and Dennis Chun would also be upped to series regulars for the eighth season.
So why did the duo decide to retire from the small screen? It turns out there’s a pretty solid reason for the ending. According to Deadline, both Alex O ‘Loughlin (Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett) and Scott Caan’s (Detective Sergeant Danny “Danno” Williams) contracts ended at the conclusion of season 10.
The 43-year-old revealed why in a 2015 interview. “I do five episodes less than Alex. I just do a couple episodes less so I can come home to see my family and stuff,” the Los Angeles resident, who shoots the show in Hawaii , explained to TV writer Rob Owen.
O’Loughlin suffered a serious back injury during the early seasons of the show, and has been dealing with effects from it ever since. There was speculation that he may leave the show two years ago but he stayed on after receiving stem cell treatment. I hear this time around, he felt he could not continue.
