What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, Hawaii Five-0 is a reboot of the original CBS TV show, which ran from 1968 to 1980. The police procedural follows a federalized task force meant to wipe out crime in Hawaii. Detective Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) returned to Oahu to investigate his father’s murder but remained to lead the new group with blanket authority and no red tape. The force includes ex-New Jersey cop Detective Danny “Danno” Williams (Scott Caan). A former protégé of McGarrett’s father, Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim) is also on board, as is his beautiful cousin, Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park). Quirky coroner Dr. Max Bergman (Masi Oka), Captain Lou Grover (Chi McBride), and conspiracy theorist Jerry Ortega (Jorge Garcia) round out the team. While they spar and joke among themselves, the teammates are determined to eliminate all seedy elements from the 50th state.

While TV shows typically decline as they age, so far Hawaii Five-0 season seven has recovered all the ground it lost last year. It is nearly back to its season five levels. Provided Hawaii Five-0 keeps up its solid performance, it should be renewed for season eight. Star Alex O’Loughlin has indicated the show’s action sequences have taken their toll however. Should CBS renew Hawaii Five-0 for season eight, the actor plans to make it his final season. Overall, I think an eighth season is a relatively safe bet, but wouldn’t expect the show to continue much longer, after that.

What do you think? Are you happy the Hawaii Five-0 TV show has been renewed for an eighth season? How would you feel, had CBS cancelled this TV show, instead?
I love watching Hawaii Five O and would not be happy if they remove it. I am about ready not to watch any shows anymore because you get into them and love them and bam they are cancelled. I remember growing up and when they had shows on they were on for through the season and I mean they were on for months until summer came and then they would put on summer shows. Now they are on for if we are lucky 10 or a few more episodes and then they are off for months for new shows and… Read more »
I love Hawaii 5-O.. Friday is the best night to watch TV..I watch Mcgiver, then Hawaii 5-0then Blue bloods.. Please don’t take That show off the air … It’s my favorite show..
I hope CBS will keep this going because they love to cancel these days and this is actually the best tv series in a while along with some others like arrow so please keep it going for the fans
I would be so upset. I love this show
I just watched Hawaii five O and love it. Looking forward to season 8, and hopefully many more. Criminal minds , SVU, and Blue Bloods are just a few of my favorites. And now Hawaii five O . I do wish the actors would be treated fairly and really hope they can rectify the problem. I live all the actors on the show. But like Criminal minds changes, I will still watch the show.
I would be so upset. I love this show
Loved the show, loved the characters; HATE that the producers refused to pay equal salaries to the native actors. Not watching anymore. I’d rather watch The Andy Griffith Show for the millionth time than watch stupid white frat boys ‘act’ while native actors get the shaft. Dumb.
Well, that does it for me, loved the show with Kelly and Park because they really made this show for me but not that they are gone, no more reason for my family and i, to watch this show. Too bad, oh well, life goes on and another great show that goes to the dumpster.
It’s my favorite show ever! I heard they were cancelling season 8 and I almost freaked. So thanks for the good news, the show goes on!
Love the show .please don’t cancel. Great stars and @beautiful scenery.
Is the Sunset on the beach going to be on sept 29th? please let us know so we can make reservations…Love Hawaii5-0 and can’t wait to see Alex and all the other actors in Hawaii…Mahalo
Awesome news! Hawaii five- o is one of the best shows on tv right now! I haven’t missed an episode yet!
