HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's official. The new Hawaii Five-O will premiere on CBS Monday September 20 at 9:00 PM Hawaii time. The date is a symbolic choice; it will commemorate the premiere of the original series 42 years ago on September 20, 1968.
Folks on Oahu won't have to wait quite that long for a taste of the new version of the classic cop drama. You can catch the premiere on September 13th at Sunset on the Beach in Waikiki.
The new series stars Alex Loughlin as Steve McGarrett, Scott Caan as Danny Williams, Grace Park as Kono Kalakaua, Daniel Dae Kim as Chin Ho and Jean Smart as the governor. The show began shooting on Oahu last week.
