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.
