Each year the stars and production crew of Hawaii Five-O begin the season of filming with a ceremonial Hawaiian blessing. Led by Kahu Blaine Kamalani Kia, cultural advisor to the show, they wanted to start the season off right and asked everyone to bring “positive energy” to this season’s filming. Season two ended with a few cliffhangers. Danno was in a custody battle, Chin Ho Kelly had to choose between saving his wife Malia, or his cousin rookie cop Kono, who was tied up an thrown overboard. Possibly the biggest cliffhanger from last season was the revelation of McGarrett’s mother as “Shelburne” who was thought to be dead and has some connection to the death of his father. Season three of Hawaii Five-O will pick back up right where it left off!

New characters this season include Christine Lahti playing Doris McGarrett, mother to Alex O’Loughlin’s character Steve McGarrett. His romantic interest Catherine Rollins, played by actress Michelle Borth, also returns with a larger role. Two women in McGarrett’s life? Sounds like a mixture for drama to me.
Look for season three of Hawaii Five-O to premiere on CBS this September!
