CBS issued a press release this week confirming the start of production, and also noting that yesterday, the cast and crew participated in a traditional Hawaiian blessing. This is something that we’ve seen Hawaii Five-0 and other shows filmed in the Aloha State do in the past. Here is how the network described the event:
Series stars Vanessa Lachey, Alex Tarrant, Noah Mills, Jason Antoon, Yasmine Al-Bustami and Tori Anderson participated alongside the NCIS: HAWAI’I producers and crew. Kahu (officiant) Kordell Kekoa officiated the ceremony, which included traditional royal maile leis, Oli Aloha (welcoming chant) and Pule Ho’oku’u (closing prayer). In honor of the show’s second season, the ceremony centered around “hana hou,” which translates to “work new” and “do it again!”
Production for season 2 is slated to last for the next several months, and our hope is that there are going to be opportunities to see a lot of new and exciting storylines for all of the main characters. We do think that a good many loose ends were tied up at the end of season 1, and there was no major cliffhanger. However, there are some developments that will easily carry over into the new season, including getting to see Whistler and Lucy together after they found a way back to each other at the end of the finale.
The premiere for NCIS: Hawaii season 2 is currently set for Monday, September 19 — it’s just under three months away! That may seem like a long time (and it is), but we’re hoping that time really flies by here and we get a chance to see a lot of really excellent stories play out.
