Hawaii Five-0 is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands’ sun-drenched beaches.
Detective Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin), a decorated Naval officer turned cop, returns to Oahu to investigate his father’s murder and stays after Hawaii’s governor persuades him to head up the new team: his rules, her backing, no red tape and full blanket immunity to hunt down the biggest ‘game’ in town.
Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny ‘Danno’ Williams (Scott Caan), a newly relocated ex-New Jersey cop who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline but is committed to keeping the Islands safe for his 8-year-old daughter; and Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim), an ex-Honolulu Police Detective wrongly accused of corruption and relegated to a federal security patrol, who is also a former protege of McGarrett’s father.
Chin’s cousin, Kono (Grace Park), is a beautiful and fearless native, fresh out of the academy and eager to establish herself among the department’s elite. McGarrett vows to bring closure to his father’s case while the state’s brash new FIVE-0 unit, who may spar and jest among themselves, is determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state.
From CBS’s press release, August 2016… SEASON FINALE: In order to stop a meth epidemic on the island, McGarrett and Danny went undercover as drug pilots, but when McGarrett was seriously wounded, Danny was forced to break their cover in order to save his partner’s life and land their airplane on the beach. As McGarrett was wheeled into the operating room, Danny offered to donate half of his liver to his partner and best friend, thus saving his life.
COMING UP: In the season premiere, McGarrett refuses to listen to Danny’s pleas to take it easy while recovering from surgery after the body of a serial killer is left in the Five-0 headquarters with an ivory chess piece in his mouth. When a second serial killer is found dead with another chess piece, Five-0 goes on the hunt for the vigilante as fear grows that it’s not safe to travel to Hawaii. Also, MacGarrett finds comfort in talking to someone with a very special connection to the team. Rosalind Chao recurs as Governor Keiko Mahoe, and Claire Forlani recurs as Alicia Brown, a retired criminal profiler.
