Hawaii Five-O is the reboot of classic Hawaii Five-O series. Season 9 of Hawaii Five-O was confirmed in April of 2018. Audiences saw the 8th Season of the series conclude this May 18th with 25 number of episodes. The series was watched in massive numbers on CBS. No wonder, Season 9 was renewed in April itself along with shows namely Blue Bloods and Madam Secretary.
We have two news stories for fans of Hawaii Five-O. Besides renewal of Hawaii Five-O, we also know that Alex O’Loughlin will return too. This came as a breather to fans of Alex O’Loughlin as Alex’s contract was up this year. Most of all Alex didn’t seem too keen on doing more of Hawaii Five-O.
In 2016, Alex O’Loughlin gave an interview saying, “Absolutely. I’m just trying to make it through the end of [Season] 7! [Five-0] is really, really wonderful, but it is an action show, I’m the main guy, and I defy anybody to do what I’ve done for as long I’ve done it and hold out the way I have,” he said. “Dude, I was a fit, strong, healthy guy when I started the show, and I still am, but you sustain what you sustain. It’s part of the gig.”
Hawaii Five-O Season 9: Key Details
What we know about Alex is that he’s changed his mind. He’s actually returned to do the series.
Mistresses alum Rochelle Aytes has confirmed that she’s doing Season 9 of Hawaii Five-O as the main Villain. She’s taking the role of Greer. In the show, she will be shown something along the lines of a CIA officer. She doesn’t have a good rapport with her fellow operatives, and she is McGarrett’s ex-lover, too.
“A character named Greer was introduced in that first episode, and she had a relationship with McGarrett ‘back in the day,” said showrunner Peter M. Lenkov.
One can bet on Rochelle Aytes’ talent. She is no stranger to crime mystery TV shows. Rochelle has done works such as Criminal Minds and Designated Survivor. Greer Arc will be introduced in the show in the first two episodes only. It looks like Mcgarrett will find himself at an awkward position but will find a way to Avery Greer’s threats successfully.
Hawaii Five-0 Season 9 premieres on Friday, Sept. 28, at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
