Hawaii Five-0 Season 3: What You Can Expect According to Hawaii Five-0 Bosses

Tuesday, May 15, 2012 · Posted in

Special thanks to for sharing this.

"Now that we’ve all seen the jaw-dropping Hawaii Five-0 season finale promised in our interview with Executive Producer Peter Lenkov and Co-Executive Producer Elwood Reid, I know we’re all probably wondering the same thing – what comes next. Luckily they did give us a few hints and tidbits, and also talked to us about filming the show in general.
First up, here’s what we can expect next season.
– The first episode of next season will resolve the various storylines from the finale, but the impact those incidents had on the characters will continue to affect them.

– Michelle Borth will return next season and join the team full time.
– Fans might be very surprised to see what happens to Wo Fat next season.
– Yes, they would love to have Ed Asner back again.
– They are unsure if there will be another crossover next season. They pointed out that those types of episodes are fun, but also a logistical nightmare – especially with series that are filmed on different continents.
– They are hoping to have James Caan back again next season and report that Caan is interested in coming back, so they have already started plotting out new possible stories for him.
In addition to giving us teasers about last week’s finale and next season, both EP’s also talked about the show in general and what it’s like re-imagining a series based on a show that premiered more than 40 years ago.
– Yes, they have watched the original, but not so much to get story ideas. They do however use the original show to get information to flesh out characters, look for old shooting locations to use again, etc. They are also very proud to have some of the original crew back working on the new show.
– Regarding using characters from the original series, they told us that they play the show as if there was no original Five-0; the team that they created exists today. For instance, when they brought in the character August March and he mentioned that he met McGarrett’s father, it was because McGarrett senior was the cop who drove August to the police station – not because he was any sort of “original Five-0″ member.
– They are very proud to see how much the show has become a hit with fans and how some terms from the series have even become household words. Such as other TV shows and movies using “Five-0″ as a term for the police, as well as how the word “cargument” has now ended up in common use and even has an entry in the Urban dictionary."

  1. Speaking of crossovers, it might be kind of wild to see a Tom Selleck cameo in an upcoming episode

  2. Dear God, please no James Caan next season. His episode was the worst of the entire series.

    1. I agree. Way too much like Peter Falk's "Columbo". I absolutely loath that character and was disappointed by the James Caan episode. It was painful, irritating, and predictable. I would have changed the channel if I didn't love the show so much. Please, please, please no more JC

  3. I really wish that season 3 is full of surprises and twists and turns, also, is catherine going to be part of the five-0 team

  4. Is catherine going to be part Of the five-0 crew or no?

  5. I don't think she's going to be part of the H50 team. She is mentioned as McGarrett's girlfriend.

  6. I love this show and cant wait for the next season. P.S i liked Lori and was sad that they got rid of her, cant say i blame her for having a crush on Steve : )

  7. Personally, I believe that we should all be friends

  8. I hope neither Kono nor Malia dies. I hope Chin manages to fix things and everything will turn out well.

  9. I hope CBS get Lori back, and make her Steve love interest :D

  10. Slim chances for that to happen Sanjay.

  11. i think that James Caan is awesome and I loved the show. I love scott cann ( he loves dogs) what a nice guy and it was cool to see him and his Dad work together. Lori can stay away and Mr. sexiest man alive aka steve (Alex) well what can I,love love him for sure. The entire show is great and i thought I comment on all your comments which just goes to show that we all love the show and have different view points and all are respected. oh and one last thing, I think that Steve"s Mom had an affair with WoFat's Dad and that Wo fat is STeve's half brother and that is why she was on the run. or something like that but i knew shelburne was Steve's mom............this show is great make you think of all sorts of scenearios. too cool and hey some of us like Columbo. lol have a nice day.

  12. I love the new Hawaii 5 O series. However, I find the new Danny too rebellious, nasty and too sure of himself thus can be quite irritating to watch!

  13. Well that's an interesting theory you have it could may well be but we are just going to wait and see what the outcome is. But I can't wait to find out why Steve's mother killed Wo Fat's father.
