Sorry for falling way behind on the updates, I have finally updated the Hawaii Five-0 stills and screencaps section of the gallery, including the Magnum P.I. crossover. I also added stills from the upcoming series finale. There’s only two episodes left for the series, don’t miss it!
Katrina did an interview with TVLine about what’s ahead of Quinn and the series finale.
TVLINE | What is Quinn up to this week?
We find out that Quinn, in her former life, before Five-0, was married, and in this episode, her former stepdaughter (played by Siena Agudong) reaches out to her to help her, because her father/my ex-husband has gone missing.
TVLINE | What other sorts things are we going to learn along the way about Quinn’s past?
Well, we’re going to learn a bit more about Quinn and her relationship with her father, and why this marriage may not have worked out and the driving force of basically why Quinn became Five-0 and the reason why her personality was shaped. And you will also get to see her love for her stepdaughter.
TVLINE | Who from the team will Quinn enlist in searching for her ex?
You know, out of all the people that she reaches out to, she decides to reach out to Adam—
TVLINE | No way! He’s been a bit of a no-goodnik lately.
Yeah, Ian [Anthony Dale] and I were laughing about that. I think it’s because the two of them maybe have a bit of a sordid past, so she trusts that he will keep her secret, that he will go along with the ride with no judgments and basically be a great ally to her. This is pretty personal journey for her.
TVLINE | Will this investigation require any gunplay, any heroics, any action/leaping/jumping?
Maybe some smacking some sense into people, but… [Laughs]
A sad news has been announced today, the current season of Hawaii Five-O will serve as its final one. The show will wrap-up its 10-season run with a two-hour series finale on April 3rd.
CBS – HAWAII FIVE-0, the popular Friday night crime drama, will conclude its successful 10-season run with a two-hour series finale, Friday, April 3 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The drama, a reimagining of Leonard Freeman’s classic series, “Hawaii Five-O,” has been an outstanding performer throughout the past decade, both domestically and internationally, where it has been seen in more than 200 countries.
“It’s never easy to say goodbye to a hit franchise that carried on the legacy of the original with such distinction, while establishing its own signature style,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “From episode one, HAWAII FIVE-0 has been a huge success for us. Thanks to the amazing talents of the producers, writers, cast and crew, it has played a key role for a decade on our schedule and helped establish our powerhouse Friday night. We cannot be prouder of its quality and longevity and are thankful for the passionate fan devotion it inspired.”
“For 10 seasons, Alex, Scott and the rest of the talented FIVE-0 cast have brought fans exciting adventures in a spectacular tropical paradise,” said David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios. “We specifically want to thank Peter and the incredibly talented production team for 10 years of consistently outstanding television. The drama has been a great success for the Studio and Network, and as a global franchise for our company. We’re pleased to give it a big sendoff and that viewers will have the opportunity to say goodbye to their favorite characters as the final season wraps.”
“HAWAII FIVE-0 has been such a blessing to me and all of the people who have worked on this incredible show,” said Peter M. Lenkov, Executive Producer. “I truly learned the meaning of ‘ohana’ as the viewers embraced us and the people of Hawaii welcomed us with the privilege to film on their shores. I am forever indebted to the creative genius that was Leonard Freeman who gave us such a beautiful story to begin with. And my eternal gratitude to our cast, led by our hero Alex O’Loughlin, the writers, the production team, our CBS ohana, and most importantly YOU, the fans, who allowed us to come to work with pride and made our series such a success. Mahalo.”
“This show has been pretty much every waking moment for the last 10 years of my life,” said series star Alex O’Loughlin. “Everywhere I go on this planet, in every language, I am McGarrett to all these people. What we’ve done, what we’ve accomplished, it’s extraordinary. I can’t really put words to express my level of gratitude. I’m just glad to have been a part of this, a part of history, and I’m going to miss it. And to the fans, I don’t know how to thank you guys. Thank you for following us the way you have. I’m going to miss you. Aloha.”
CBS’ shows, Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I., are set for a full-on crossover on January 03, 2020 in back-to-back episodes!
TVLINE – TVLine has learned that a full-on crossover between CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I. is officially happening, on Friday, Jan. 3, 2020 in back-to-back episodes.
In fact, showrunner Peter M. Lenkov tells us that the Magnum half of the crossover has already completed filming, and the Five-0 half is nearly done.
Though this merging of the Aloha State-based procedurals did not come to fruition during Magnum‘s freshman run, as initially hoped, Lenkov had told TVLine over the summer that he was resolved to making it happen this TV season. Weeks later, he updated us, “We have narrowed down a story.”
That story will find “our Five-0 guys kicking down doors” to track down a POI at a hotel — unaware that private eyes Thomas Magnum and Juliet Higgins are surveilling the same room. “In a way, Higgins and Magnum become witnesses that Five-0 needs to help them,” says Lenkov. “And our two worlds collide!”
Specifically, Magnum, Higgins, TC and Rick (played by Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Stephen Hill and Zachary Knighton) will appear in that Friday’s Five-0 episode alongside McGarrett & Co., after which Five-0‘s Junior, Tani and Quinn (played by Beulah Koale , Meaghan Rath and Katrina Law) will continue on to Magnum P.I.
“It’s a big-stakes story that really feels like a two-hour movie,” says Lenkov. And while the series’ showrunner feared he would have a hard time convincing Magnum‘s much smaller cast that the “double-ups” (filming two episodes at once) were worth it, “That was not an issue at all.”
In the Season 10 premiere of the criminal procedural Hawaii 5-0, fans were introduced to new cast member, Katrina Law, who plays the strong-willed Quinn Liu.
The former staff sergeant with the Army Criminal Investigation Command proved to Lt. Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) that she would be an asset to the Five-0 team after she helped close a case by tracking down the assassin who had been targeting mob bosses.
Katrina Law teases that some exciting Season 10 surprises are in store for Hawaii Five-0 viewers.
It was announced today that Katrina is joining the upcoming season of Hawaii Five-0 as a series regular!
DEADLINE – Law plays Quinn Liu, a former staff sergeant with Army CID recently demoted for insubordination. After an explosive collision with Five-O on a case involving veterans, she soon becomes a loyal ally to the team that always has valued integrity over playing by the rules. Sharp-tongued in several languages, Quinn has a deep understanding of military culture, a mysterious past, and a deft ability to match wits with McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin).
“We are thrilled to have Katrina join the 10th season Hawaii-Five-O as a series regular,” executive producer Peter Lenkov said. “She dazzles as Quinn, the team’s newest recruit, and viewers are going to love seeing how she first encounters McGarrett and Danny. If you know the show well, you’ll be feeling some déjà vu.”
CBS has opted not to pick up the pilot, Alive, to series, unfortunately.
Alive (formerly Frankenstein) — PASSED OVER
Logline: A San Francisco homicide detective is mysteriously brought back to life after being killed in the line of duty, but as he resumes his old life and he and his wife realize he isn’t the same person he used to be, they zero in on the strange man behind his resurrection: Dr. Victor Frankenstein.
Cast: Ryan Phillippe (Shooter), Katrina Law (Training Day), Aaron Staton (Mad Men), Saidah Arrika Ekulona
Team: W/EP Jason Tracey (Elementary); EP Rob Doherty, D Uta Briesewitz (Westworld, Stranger Things)
Studio: CBS TV Studios
New project alert! Katrina is set to co-lead the CBS drama pilot, Alive, a modern interpretation of the classic Frankenstein tale. Ryan Phillippe and Aaron Staton are also set to star.
DEADLINE – Written/executive produced by Jason Tracey and directed/executive produced by Uta Briesewitz, Alive centers on Mark Escher (Phillippe), a San Francisco homicide detective who’s mysteriously brought back to life after being killed in the line of duty. But as he resumes his old life and he and his wife Elizabeth (Law) realize he isn’t the same person he used to be, they zero in on the strange man behind his resurrection: Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Staton).
Phillippe’s Escher, a San Francisco police investigator, was presumed dead after an attack and destructive fire at his home. Six months later, he shockingly reappears and is reunited with his wife, Elizabeth. But something has changed. A shadow has fallen across his sunny disposition, and he’s haunted by visions of the case he was working on when he died. He and Elizabeth will seek answers about who shot and abducted him, and what was done to him.
Law’s Elizabeth Lavenza, a pathologist/medical examiner, is stunned when her husband returns from the dead, and though she’s thrilled to have him back, she knows there’s a secret behind his disappearance, his reappearance and his new personality – and she thinks she knows exactly who’s responsible.
Staton’s Victor Frankenstein is a brilliant, slightly odd and driven – perhaps obsessed – scientist who is working on a secret, cutting-edge project. On the run from an ethics board in China, Victor is back in the U.S., where he works in a lab and is very involved in whatever it is that’s going on with Escher. He’s also Escher’s wife’s ex.
