“Five-O” by the Numbers
Number of new episodes already ordered by CBS
Seasons for the original series
Estimated millions of dollars that will be spent on film-industry production this year in Hawaii
Jobs expected to be created over the course of the first season, including everyone from actors and extras to carpenters and drivers
Thirty years after the original “Hawaii Five-O” team ended its 12-year run on CBS, a new version will be back on the network on Monday nights at 9 starting this fall. New actors play the classic TV characters – Steve McGarrett, Danny “Danno” Williams, Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua – but Hawaii’s natural beauty is reprising its supporting role from the original.
