Basic info and cast
Hawaii Five-0 is an American police procedural TV series based on the 1968 hit series of the same name. The series was created by Leonard Freeman and developed by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Peter M. Leskov. It premiered on CBS on September 20, 2010, exactly 42 years later than the debut of the original show on September 20, 1968. It hails from K/O Paper Productions, CBS Television Studios and 101st Street Television. On September 23, 2016 the seventh season of the revived Hawaii Five-O was launched.
Hawaii Five-0 follows a small special state task force created by the Governor of Hawaii to investigate serious crimes around the islands. Headed by Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarret, members of the Hawaii Five-0 task force take on cases that range from terrorist threats to murders and kidnappings. And they don’t follow the regular chain of command, instead, they report directly to the Governor’s office which creates an additional layer of drama.
Ratings dynamics and renewal potential
Season 7 of Golden Globe Award nominee Hawaii Five-0 returned to CBS on September 23, 2016 and is scheduled for a 25-episode run. The seventh season renewal came as no surprise given the consistently impressive ratings and is already drawing an average of 9.8 million viewers just three episodes into the current season. While there was a slight dip in the ratings between seasons 3 and 4, Hawaii Five-0 picked up stream in season 5, and has performed very well since. It boasts solid review aggregator scores, averaging 7.4/10 on IMDb and 75% on Rotten Tomatoes. So will there be enough crime to fight for the cast of Hawaii Five-0 in season 8? Fans of the show will need to sit tight to find out more details. To date, CBS has been tight-lipped about a possible renewal for another season.
