Hawaii Five-O will be returning to CBS (same network as before) this fall.

?

The pilot for the series was shot in Oahu in early March and CBS liked what they saw.

?

The cast includes former?Lost?cast member Daniel Dae Kim as Chin Ho Kelly; Scott Caan, son of actor James Caan as Danny ("Danno") Williams; Jean Smart from?Designing Women?and?"24"?as the Governor; Vancouver-raised Grace Park of?Battlestar Galactica?fame as Kono Kalakaua (formerly played by a male actor, Zulu); and in the lead role, Australian actor Alex O'Laughlin playing top cop Steve McGarrett. O'Loughlin previously had a police role on the US drama?The Shield?and also played a private investigator who turned into a vampire in the show?Moonlight. O'Loughlin and Caan are depicted above.

?

According to Daniel Dae Kim, "Some of the characters are descendants of the original characters and others have the same names but have no relation."

?

The show has been given the Monday night 10 p.m. time slot. The show will debut in the fall of 2010; the premiere date is not yet known.

It's been a long route to this remake.

?

In 1997, Stephen J. Cannell (A-Team, 21 Jump Street) produced a one-hour pilot staring Gary Busey and Russell Wong. It was not well received, due to the fact that Chin Ho Kelly, one of the supporting characters, was killed off in the original series.

?

In August 2008,?Criminal Minds?executive producer Ed Bernero expressed interest in reviving the Five-O TV franchise. But as of October 2009, Bernero was out and several new creative people were assigned to the project, among them?Fringe?creators Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and?CSI: NY?showrunner Peter Lenkov.

?

The following is the CBS press release from May 19, 2010:

?

Hawaii Five-O?is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands' sun-drenched beaches. Detective Steve McGarrett (O'Loughlin), a decorated Naval officer turned cop, returns to Oahu to investigate his father?s murder and stays after Hawaii?s governor persuades him to head up the new team: his rules, her backing, no red tape and full blanket immunity to hunt down the biggest ?game? in town. Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny ?Danno? Williams (Caan), a newly relocated ex-New Jersey cop who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline but is committed to keeping the Islands safe for his 8-year-old daughter; and Chin Ho Kelly (Dae Kim), an ex-Honolulu Police Detective wrongly accused of corruption and relegated to a federal security patrol, who is also a former prot?g? of McGarrett?s father. Chin?s cousin, Kono (Park), is a beautiful and fearless native, fresh out of the academy and eager to establish herself among the department?s elite. McGarrett vows to bring closure to his father?s case while the state?s brash new Five-O unit, who may spar and jest among themselves, is determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state.
