The new Hawaii Five-0 2.0 premieres on CBS TV (KGMB Channel 9) next Monday, September 20 at 9:00 pm Hawaii Time. The network as well as the local film industry have high hopes that the new take of the venerable old title will be as successful as the original.
Hawaii Five-0 had its Waikiki premiere this past Monday, September 13 before a crowd of thousands. The main cast members of the new TV series were all on hand for the public premiere, as well as a number of Hawaii politicians and people in the industry.
The original Hawaii Five-0 starring Jack Lord, James MacArthur, Kam Fong, Al Harrington and Zulu ran for 12 years on the CBS network from 1968 to 1980. The program is very popular today and is shown in syndication and on cable all over the world. Locally the classic Hawaii Five-0 episodes air on KWHE TV Channel 14 Monday through Friday at 7:00 pm. The original series is also available for purchase on DVD.
