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.
The most famous Hawaii based crime drama was Hawaii Five – O which aired on the CBS television network from September 1968 to April 1980. A modern-day remake of the series aired on the same television network from September 2010 to April 2020.
Hawaii Five-0 will end its run with its original stars Alex O’Loughlin as McGarrett and Scott Caan as Danno. I hear both of their current contracts are up at the end of this season. O’Loughlin suffered a serious back injury during the early seasons of the show, and has been dealing with effects from it ever since.
In an interview Mr. Chun said he left ” Hawaii Five -0” because he felt the scripts were becoming stale. The show’s writers killed off his character, and in that episode, his dying words were, ”It was all worth it. ”
Alex O’Loughlin (41) has played Comander Steve McGarrett since the show was first aired in 2010. The 41-year-old has been married to Malia Jones (41) since 2014.
Production has begun on another of CBS’ scripted procedurals for the 2020 -2021 season. Magnum P.I. kicked off its third season with a traditional Hawaiian blessing in honor of its host’s culture in Kapolei, Oahu on Wednesday. The safety protocols in place for the ceremony were consistent with the ones set for filming.
He shoots Danny , who is immediately rushed to the hospital by the entire Five – 0 team. With Danny’s life hanging in the balance, a despairing McGarrett, who’s been dealing with parental ghosts and an existential crisis all season, goes to the chapel but can’t find solace there.
He had starring roles in the films Oyster Farmer (2004) and The Back-up Plan (2010), as well as on such television series as Moonlight (2008) and Three Rivers (2009).

Born in Canberra, Australia, and raised in Sydney, Alex O’Loughlin’s thick Aussie accent is nowhere to be heard on “Hawaii Five-0,” where he plays the lead character Steve McGarrett. “I heard that some people thought I was American,” says the 34-year-old actor during a break from shooting in Honolulu.
Though O’Loughlin returned to Hawaii Five-0, it wasn’t clear how much longer he’d be able to continue in his highly physical role as McGarrett. Though he agreed to a one-year contract extension in May 2019, the future beyond that was uncertain. “I believe Alex wanted this to be his last year,” Lenkov told TVLine.
Industry sources said O’Loughlin and Caan are making about $200,000 per episode apiece for the upcoming eighth season of the show, produced by CBS Television Studios.
CBS announced on Friday that the Hawaii Five-0 season 10 finale will now be a two-hour series finale, ending the popular TV crime drama after almost 250 episodes. Some say that the show hasn’t been the same since Daniel Dae Kim (who portrayed Chin Ho Kelly) and Grace Park (who played Kono Kalakaua) exited in 2017.
