The Hawaii Five – 0 just lost one of their number. Jorge Garcia, who played consultant Jerry Ortega on the CBS procedural, is leaving the show’s main cast. Appropriately, the character decided to work on a book connecting the U.S. Federal Reserve to the Titanic sinking after exiting the Five – 0 .
We don’t see this departure for Junior , if it even sticks, being the sort of thing that takes him away from the show forever. This is something that Hawaii Five-0 as a series seems to be doing more and more of this season, rotating a few characters in and out in terms of how many episodes they appear in.
During negotiations with CBS, Kim and Park reportedly asked to receive pay equal to that of their their white co-stars, Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan.
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.
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.
There are only three episodes left before the CBS show takes a mini holiday hiatus. The good news, though, is that Tani and Junior fans won’t have to wait to see more of them together , if not together together . The next new episode airs Friday, December 6.
The long-running crime drama will wrap with a two-hour series finale . CBS is saying aloha to Hawaii Five – 0 . The long-running crime drama is set to end with its current 10th 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.
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.
Is Scott Caan married? Caan isn’t married, but he does have a long-time partner, Kacy Byxbee . She gave birth to the couple’s first child, a daughter named Josie James, in 2014.
Alex O’Loughlin’s Tattoos He has large tattoos on each shoulder, tattoos on each forearm, a small one above his right nipple, and one large one that spans his lower back and reaches slightly over his hips (my personal fave).
