Buffet plays helicopter pilot Frank Bama on the police procedural, which also stars Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, Masi Oka, Jorge Garcia, and Chi McBride.
Fortunately, for fans, showrunner Peter M. Lenkov corrected Buffet on Twitter, saying the series is far from over:
Hey @jimmybuffett – whoever gave you that info is wrong. Bama is alive and well… For many many MORE seasons. Good luck on the tour.

Lenkov later told TVLine the mistake was maybe due to too many margaritas:
I don’t know where that came from. It was early in the morning and I think they were giving him margaritas or something! We’re playing it as if we’re coming back, as if we have another season at least.”
Season seven of Hawaii Five-0 premieres on September 23rd.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Hawaii Five-0? How many more seasons do you think the show should last?
