Hawaii Five-O Season 10: Premiere Date, Cast, Recap, Update

‘Hawaii Five-O’ is an action drama and police procedural that airs on CBS. The series first premiered on September 20, 2010. For those unaware, it is a reimagining of the original series by Leonard Freeman, which also aired on CBS from 1968 to 1980.

Much like the original series, the newer version also focuses on the elite state police task force that has been set up to combat major crimes in Hawaii. It deals with the investigation that takes place after crimes are committed in Hawaii. The Governor is the head who the police department answers to. The resources and immunity to those involved in the investigation are provided by the Governor. Amid dirty politics, the investigators crack cases from the minor robbery to the major murders and rapes.

The series has been developed by Peter M. Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci. K/O Paper Products, CBS Productions, CBS Television Studios, and 101st Street Television are the companies backing the project, while Peter M. Tassler is the producer. Peter M. Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Eric Guggenheim are on board as the executive producers of the show. The series, being a remake of an old popular show, did not find it hard to attract viewers, and they have expanded their fanbase ever since with the kind of content they have been putting out. Critics too received it favorably, calling it a slick and brisk reboot, with dashes of nostalgia and saying that the fine locales and cast members made the show an extremely enjoyable watch.

Hawaii Five-0 Cast: Who is in it?

The main cast of ‘Hawaii Five-O’ includes Alex O’Loughlin who plays as Lieutenant Commander Steven J “Steve” McGarrett. He is a former Navy SEAL and head of the task force. His father’s murder prompts him to return and form this body.

Scott Caan plays Detective Sergeant Danny Williams who acts as the second in command of the team. Daniel Dae Kim is seen as Detective Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly, Steven’s father’s protege and a veteran member of the Hawaiian Police Department.  Grace Park plays Officer Kono Kalakaua a surfer turned into a member of the team. She eventually left the show since CBS did not pay her equal wage as fellow co-stars Alex and Scott.

Taryn Manning appears as Mary Ann McGarrett Steve’s younger sister, with whom Steven often interacts, which gives us a look at his personal life as well. Masi Oka plays the role of Dr.Max Bergman a well-respected member of the medical community despite being slightly eccentric. Lauren German appears as Special Agent Lori Weston a senior agent from the Department of Homeland Security who provides oversight to the team in Hawaii. Chi McBride appears as Captain Lou Grover a cop transferred from Chicago, Meaghan Rath as Officer Tani Rey another of McGarrett’s personal recruits. Tani is shown to be a top member of the academy who gets kicked out nonetheless, and works as a pool guard, till she is recruited. Taylor Wily appears as Kamekona Tupuola a confidential informant for the task force. Dennis Chun appears as Sergeant Duke Lukela a liaison between the HPD and the task force. There are several other members of the team, not to mention the supporting characters who help the viewers understand the nature of the task force and the criminal aspect in ‘Hawaii Five-O’.

Hopefully, in the upcoming season, we will see the main characters return and they might even be joined by some new faces who are bound to keep things interesting.

Hawaii Five-O Plot: What is it about?

The main plot of ‘Hawaii Five-O’ talks about the crime scene investigation that takes place in Hawaii and is led by Alex o’Loughlin as Lieutenant Commander Steven J. The investigation officers and their teams are answerable only to the Governor, who takes care of their resources and is concerned for their safety. The investigation officers and their teams are dedicated to crack cases and apprehend the criminals. The crimes that need to be cracked range from robbery, mugging, terrorism, murder, rape, and even potential terror attacks. The team enjoys full blanket authority to pursue criminals of heinous activities. This cutting-edge action keeps viewers drooling for more action.

Over the seasons, the team has taken on different cases, and the initial team has been replaced by several new candidates who Steve picks from the HPD academy. After all, the task force needs the best, and the top law enforcement officials join in order to serve the people. As the team members change, there is always a shift in the group dynamic, but Steve is a focused leader who keeps bringing them around and leads them in the right path as they enforce justice in the way they know best.

What stands out about the show is its ability to keep viewers hooked despite the presence of a dizzying number of cop shows on television. Part of this probably has to do with the fact that all cast members are rather good-looking and for a cop show, they switch between their uniforms and swimsuits pretty quickly. But, I guess, that is Hawaii for you. More importantly, the pacing is intense albeit formulaic. You know there will be a threat or a crime and then there will be bickering among the team members before they eventually come together to handle the situation.

However, what should be noted is that some of the aspects of the cop show send across a message that the ends justify the means, and having this lack of answerability is not the kind of thing that we need from authoritarian institutions at the moment when there is a prejudicial abuse of power taking place. At the same time, the show does give us an idea of some of the prejudices that the cops might hold, and most importantly, it turns the lens towards the criminal underbelly that exists in Hawaii. Normally, when people think of this state, they see it is a vacation or party destination. However, there is a lot of shady things that carry on underneath the surface, and having a ruthless team like the task force, is sometimes the only way to keep the criminal elements in check.

Perhaps, in the upcoming season of the show, we will see these issues being addressed because truth be told, we like the task force and would love to keep seeing more of them. Hopefully, we will also get to know more about the personal lives of the members of the force, since it is often a determining factor of their motives during the line of duty.
