Masi Oka is back on TV following his exit from Hawaii Five-0, and the actor just signed on to join one of Amazon’s most highly acclaimed original series. Fans of Oka will be able to see him next on the dramedy Mozart In The Jungle, as he comes to Season 4 of the musical series in a guest-starring role.
TVLine has learned that Masi Oka, who was a series regular from Season 2 through half of Season 7, will be a special guest star in the Friday, Oct. 25 episode of the long-running CBS procedural. What’s more, former M.E. Max will be returning with a son in tow.
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.
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.
Though Masi got married in the series and had a happening dating life yet, in reality, he is unmarried and has a girlfriend named Nicole.
Hawaii Five – 0 seems to have finally closed the door on Kono Kalakaua’s return to the series. Almost a season and a half since Grace Park’s character was written off the show after a contract dispute, the crime procedural revealed that Kono and Adam Noshimuri (Ian Anthony Dale) officially called it quits.
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.
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 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).

The producers of Hawaii Five-0 knew that Caan didn’t like to live in Hawaii and wanted to spend time with his family, which include young children, so they gave him the breaks to go back home often and in those cases he misses episodes.
Hawaii Five – 0 is ending so there won’t be an 11th season .
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.
