(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


A still from the Cocoon remake posted on social media by executive producer Peter Lenkov.

You can’t keep a good man — or arch villain — down.

Mark Dacascos, who played Wo Fat 2.0 in the current Hawaii Five-0 series, will be part of a Sept. 28 episode that remakes Cocoon, the pilot for the original 1968-80 Five-O series, according to Entertainment Weekly’s website.

The original Wo Fat (Khigh Dhiegh) was the villain of the 1968 pilot and would bedevil Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord) until the show’s final episode.

However, in the current series, which began in 2010, the Dacascos version of Wo Fat seemed to be definitively killed off in a 2014 episode.

This begs the question. Has executive producer Peter Lenkov devised a way to bring his Wo Fat back from the dead? Or will Wo Fat still be dead but appear in a flashback?

Naturally, there are no answers now.

Decascos tweeted out the Entertainment Weekly story. Lenkov, in turn, did a “quote tweet.” (Sunset on the Beach refers to an annual outdoor showing of the first episode of a Five-0 season.)

We’re blowing minds, Mark… no one can figure out how Wo Fat comes back to life. Folks attending Sunset on the Beach will find out first. #h50https://t.co/Gl63BrJJuR

Fans of both Hawaii Five-0 and Hawaii Five-O are due for some déja vu when the current CBS series pays homage to the original — as seen in this exclusive photo from the Season 9 opener.

To mark the franchise’s 50th anniversary, Five-0 is retelling the story from the 1968 pilot, which ran in two parts and was titled “Cocoon.” As such, showrunner Peter M. Lenkov got to share a writing credit with the late Leonard Freeman, creator of the original series.

In both versions of the “Cocoon” story, Steve McGarrett (then Jack Lord, now Alex O’Loughlin) braved a torturous sensory deprivation tank in the course of tracking a killer. Wo Fat (originally played by Khigh Dhiegh) filled a pivotal role in the original pilot, so fans of the modern remake questioned how faithful the retelling could be. But have no fear, our Five-0‘s Wo Fat will be accounted for, even though he is quite dead in the current continuity.

As Lenkov shared with TVLine as part of our Fall Preview Q&A, Mark Dacascos will reprise his role as the vexing villain when McGarrett, freshly dazed from the sensory deprivation tank, imagines seeing his old nemesis, only to realize his actual tormentor is a man named Kang (played by Roger Yuan, top photo).

Elsewhere in the Season 9 premiere (airing Friday, Sept. 28 at 9/8c), Tani wrestles with whether or not she will tell McGarrett about the murder weapon she found at Adam’s house.

The Hawaii Five-0 team is having an Academy Award winner over for Thanksgiving dinner.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Louis Gossett Jr. is set to guest-star in a Season 9 episode that is set around the November holiday, playing the father of Chi McBride’s Lou Grover.

A new member of the Writers Guild, McBride in fact wrote the Thanksgiving-themed episode, as first reported by TVLine.

“That’s a big deal for us,” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov affirmed. “Chi called me up and said, ‘I have this thing…,’ and I said, ‘Write it!’ We met a couple of times and he turned in a great script.”

Gossett Jr.’s recent TV credits include Hap and Leonard, Extant and episodes of The Good Fight and Madam Secretary. In addition to the Oscar he won for An Officer and a Gentleman, his mantle also boasts a pair of Golden Globes (including one for the TV-movie The Josephine Baker Story) and a Primetime Emmy Award (for the 1977 Roots miniseries).

He also will have a role in Damon Lindelof’s recently greenlit Watchmen series for HBO, where he is speculated to be playing Old Man.
