For those of you who are fans of “Hawaii Five-0,” you can now breathe a little bit easier: There are no plans, at least for the time being, for the upcoming seventh season of the show on CBS to be its last.
Some of the rumors regarding the end of the series came out courtesy of a recent interview on “Today” with Jimmy Buffett, who plays Frank Bama on the series. There, he claimed that this upcoming seventh season would be the end of the line for the show, which was rather surprising given that this is not something people were talking about. We know that the ratings for the show are not necessarily through the roof, but it a strong player in syndication and we like to think that this sort of stuff does make a difference when it comes to more seasons.
In a post on Twitter, executive producer Peter M. Lenkov cleared the air, and made it known that there could be “many more seasons” still coming up for the show. Obviously, it’ll be up to CBS to determine when they want to say “aloha” to this series for good, but Lenkov and company obviously have not been told to start packing things up.
The new season premieres later this year, and we imagine that this could be one of the more entertaining ones to date. As a result of the transplant, Danny and McGarrett have gone through this super-dramatic shared experience, and you could argue that this could bring them closer together. With that being said, there’s also a good chance that it could lead them to simply bicker more.
