Steve McGarrett and Co. will return to Hawaii Five-0 for a sixth season.
The CBS drama received its renewal on Monday, ensuring the series will be able to tie up the finale's loose ends this fall.
"Thanks for all the good wishes on #H50 Season 6," Daniel Dae Kim (Chin) tweeted. "Now let's see if Kono gets married after all!"
Kono's (Grace Park) road to the alter has been a long one - one which involved dodging nuclear disaster and her cousin's concerns - but the intrepid investigator still didn't get to say "I do" during "A Make Kaua (Until We Die)." Instead, fans were left contemplating Gabriel Waincroft's (Christopher Sean) return, a topic that showrunner Peter Lenkov announced will feature heavily in the season 6 premiere.
The Kono/Adam nuptials weren't the only matter left hanging as the finale came to a close on Friday. Cathrine Rollin's (Michelle Borth) is back in town, but her fate is as uncertain as Danny's (Scott Caan) life with his newly revealed son.
Fans will have to tune in this fall to find out exactly what the future will hold for McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin), Danny, Kono, Chin, and Grover (Chi McBride). Click the video below to see a preview for Hawaii Five-0's lastest episodes, "Luapo'I (Prey)" and "A Make Kaua."
McGarrett and his team still have a job to do. CBS has renewed Hawaii Five-0 for a sixth season.
A reimagining of the original Hawaii Five-0 TV show, this police procedural series revolves around an elite state police task force that fights crime in the 50th state. The series stars Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, Masi Oka, and Chi McBride.
Airing on Friday nights, the fifth season of Hawaii Five-0 averaged a 1.24 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.47 million viewers. That’s down by more than 12% in the key demo and it led some to suspect that the series would be cancelled this time around. Not so — the series will return next season, likely in the fall.

CBS didn’t need The Machine’s help in making this decision. The network has renewed Person Of Interest for a fifth season. Joining Person Of Interest in CBS’ renewal announcements are fellow long-running CBS series, such as Hawaii Five-0 and The Good Wife, along with two of the network’s freshman series, CSI: Cyber and The Odd Couple. CBS renewed 15 series in total.
In addition to Person Of Interest, Hawaii Five-0, The Good Wife, CSI: Cyber, and The Odd Couple, CBS also ordered new seasons of Elementary, NCIS, Blue Bloods, NCIS: Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, Survivor, Undercover Boss, The Amazing Race, 60 Minutes, and 48 Hours. The network had already previous renewed freshman series Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, and Scorpion, along with four of its returning comedies, The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly, Mom, and 2 Broke Girls.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t been good for all of CBS’ shows. Late last week, the network cancelled freshman dramas Battle Creek and Stalker, as well as first year comedy The McCarthys. Battle Creek still has three more episodes remaining (which will continue to air on Sunday nights at 10 p.m.), while Stalker airs the first of its finale two hours tonight at 9 p.m. The McCarthys aired its last new episode back in January.
And from reports, fans of CSI don’t have to worry about the long-running series (which just wrapped up its 15th season back in February) joining the group of cancelled CBS shows. The network is reportedly finalizing plans to bring CSI back for an abbreviated 16th and final season.

Hawaii Five-0 has a new big bad.
Gabriel Waincroft (Christopher Sean) has been quietly subverting all of Five-0's expectations, but Chin's (Daniel Dae Kim) brother-in-law will make some major noise in the season 6 premiere (note: CBS has yet to announce a season 6 renewal.) Known for his murderous tendencies, Gabriel's rise to power can only spell danger for McGarrett's (Alex O'Loughlin) team.
"[Gabriel is] definitely going to be a force to be reckoned with, and he's going to come right up, very hot out of the gate in the first episode next season," showrunner Peter Lenkov informed The Hollywood Reporter.
The finale moments of "A Make Kaua (Until We Die)" proves that Gabriel is looking for an ally inside law enforcement, and he's willing to make some lucrative offers in the process. However, it is still unclear what the cop killer is up to - or why he thinks staying in paradise is a wise idea.
"The pieces are going to come a little bit more together at the beginning of next year," Lenkov explained to The Hollywood Reporter, neither confirming or denying if Chin will accept Waincroft's proposal. "Somebody like that, you imagine as soon as he got away, he would have left the island, but he didn't, so you've got to ask yourself why."

Nothing says season finale like a wedding, a reunion, a bomb and a helicopter. Hawaii Five-O had all that and more last night. Wrapping up its fifth cycle and with no official word on if it’s coming back, the 50th state cop show went large with a double shot – and it was on target, kind of. In its regular slot of 9 PM, Five-O drew a 1.1/4 and at 10 PM, in Blue Bloods’, usual time period, it got a 1.0/4. The former was a slip of 8% from last week while the latter was down 17%. Compared to the Blue Bloods Season 5 finale on May 1, the 10 PM Five-O sank 23%.
Finale-to-finale, last night’s Five-O was also down 8% from its Season 4 finale of May 9, 2014. Easily the most watched show of the night on the most watched network of the night (7.32 million for CBS), the 9 PM portion of the Five-O S5 finale got 8.37 million viewers. That’s virtually the same as the series had last week with a mere 2% dip. However, compared to last year’s S4 finale viewership, last night’s 9 PM airing was down 9%. Leading off the night for CBS, The Amazing Race (1.0/5) took a misstep of 9% itself off its May 1 show.
It was a step up forGrimm (1.0/4) last night as the NBC show rose 11% from last week’s series low to now reach a 4-week high among adults 18-49. Head to head with the Five-O final, Dateline (1.1/4) also had a reasonably good night with a 10% uptick from its May 1 airing
After debuting with some bite last week, Beyond The Tank (1.4/5) got a little chomped itself last night. Some doggy treats were in the spotlight as Barbara Corcoran checked in on a young go-getter who seemed to be going off the entrepreneurial track on the Shark Tank spinoff. Coming off a Shark Tank (1.5/7) that itself dipped 6% from last week, BTT leaked 12% in the demo. That’s not really bad at all as Week 2 declines usually go, especially when you factor in that BTT was adjusted up a tenth from the early ratings – something that maybe could happen here. With an overall 1.4/5 rating, ABC’s 5th straight demo winning Friday was capped off by 10 PM’s 20/20 (1.2/4), which was up 20% in the demo and won its time slot.
Continuing its post-Glee tactic of playing movies on Friday nights, Fox showed 1996’s Scream (0.4/2) last night. The mocking fright flick was down 42% from what the airing of Taken got last Friday.
On The CW, Whose Line Is It Anyway? (0.5/2) at 8 PM was up a very serious 66% from what it got at 8:30 PM last week and up a very very very serious 150% from what Cedric’s Barber Battle garnered. The short lived and now cancelled The Messengers (0.2/1) was even with last week.
Fast National ratings for Friday, May 8, 2015.
So... Business as usual.
The freshly renewed "Beyond the Tank" held up decently in its second week, the freshly canceled "Messengers" stayed low and two hours of "Dateline" put NBC in second for the night among young viewers.
Let's get to the numbers...
Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 1.4 rating to win Friday night in the key demographic. NBC was second with a 1.1 key demo rating, followed closely by the 1.0 key demo rating for CBS. There was a drop to FOX's 0.4 key demo rating and to The CW's 0.3 key demo rating for Friday night.
Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 7.32 million viewers and a 4.7 rating/9 share to comfortably win Friday primetime. ABC was second with 5.73 million viewers and a 3.7/7, followed closely by NBC's 5.23 million viewers and 3.6/7. FOX averaged nearly 1.3 million viewers and a 0.9 /2, just ahead of The CW's 0.6/1 and 991,000 for Friday.
8 p.m. - "Shark Tank" won the 8 p.m. hour with 6.58 million viewers and a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49, easily handling the 5.47 million viewers and 1.0 key demo rating for the penultimate episode of "The Amazing Race." NBC's "Grimm" was third overall with 4.28 million viewers and tied for second with a 1.0 key demo rating. Way back, FOX's airing of "Scream" averaged 1.34 million viewers and a 0.4 key demo rating, compared to the 1.3 million viewers and 0.4 key demo rating for two episodes of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" on The CW.
9 p.m. - The first of two "Hawaii Five-0" episodes averaged 8.37 million viewers to win the 9 p.m. hour, coming in second with a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. ABC's "Beyond the Tank" was second with 5.57 million viewers and won the hour with a 1.4 key demo rating. NBC's "Dateline" was a close third with 5.28 million viewers and a 1.0 key demo rating. FOX's "Scream" averaged 1.25 million viewers and a 0.4 key demo rating to beat the 679,000 viewers and 0.2 key demo rating for "The Messengers" on The CW.
10 p.m. - "Hawaii Five-0" closed primetime with 8.12 million viewers to win the 10 p.m. hour, but finished third with a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49. NBC's "Dateline" averaged 6.12 million viewers to the 5.05 million for ABC's "20/20," but both newsmagazines did a 1.2 key demo rating.

The case this week was not an average traffic stop, nor was it an average kidnapping. In fact, this was no average hour of Hawaii Five-0.
Hawaii Five-0 Season 5 Episode 24 continued to build the mystery of what exactly Adam is up too and revealed that Chin is secretly investigating the photos.
But, the biggest news of all was Rachel telling Danny that Charlie is his son after all! It was both awe-inspiring and a tear jerker.
The planning for Kono's wedding is almost complete and next week we are going to have a wedding installment. Woohooo!
After everything that Kono and Adam have been through together and separately, I am really excited to finally see them get to this point in their relationship. Over the course of the show, they have been the couple that I root for the most. And damn do they look good together!
You know, it has actually just been the hardest part of this process, not having her involved. The hardest part is I always assumed that if and when there was a time to plan a wedding that she would be there, doing it with me every step of the way.Kono
I am nervous about what exactly Chin will find out about the man in the photos. The best case scenario is that Steve is right and Adam does not know that this guy is associated with the Yakuza.
My prediction is that Adam knows this man is involved, but is working some kind of angle. Could he be providing information to some branch of law enforcement that Kono does not know about?
I can't say that part of me didn't suspect all along that Charlie was Danny's son, but it still took me by surprise when those suspicions turned out to be true. It was heartbreaking to see how sad it made Danny. The moment when Danny looked at Rachel and asked her how she could do this was powerful and moving.
I know that you hate me right now and I don't blame you for hating me. But I am telling you now, we have a son and there is something wrong and that something wrong could kill him.Rachel
Of course the bounty hunter wasn't going to give up on Andrew. After all, the man was worth 40 thousand dollars. My first thought was that we were going to have a second dead bounty hunter on our hands. Instead, Richie turned Andrew over to Malcolm and her Liam Neeson inspired father.
I know how much pain a person can endure before passing out. I know how long it takes to recover. I know how to keep a person alive, even when letting them die would be more humane. When this is all over, you will beg me to kill you.Father
It's easy to side with Steve and understand the reasons for wanting vengeance, but there is no way this method would have brought Malcolm any peace. He isn't like Andrew, because like most people, he doesn't enjoy killing or torturing someone.
How much did you enjoy the cameo by Dog the Bounty Hunter? I was pleasantly surprised when he graced the screen with his presence and I chuckled at the fact that someone's outfit was finally more out of place than Danny's.
So you want to know what this cat's next move is right?Dog
My favorite scene was the long awaited one with Danny and Steve driving around in the black car. In the last review, I was feeling nostalgic about never seeing these two together. Well, we finally got Danny and Steve and they even bantered about their relationships.
While I still have a bad taste in my mouth over how their friendship has degraded this season, their banter has temporarily filled the whole in my heart.
I like Steve is still not over Catherine. The two were together for a long time and she was one of the loves of his life. It takes longer than a year to get over people like that.
All in all this was one of my favorite installments this entire season. After the past three stand alone episodes, I am really excited about what is to come in the finale.
What did you think of this hour? What did you think off the case this week? Were you shocked when Rachel revealed that Charlie was Danny's son? What was your favorite scene?
If you haven't seen this awesome hour yet, remember you can watch Hawaii Five-0 online!
On the eve of Kono’s wedding to Adam, Five-0 learns that a stolen nuclear bomb is somewhere on the island and about to be detonated. Also, McGarrett is stunned when Catherine returns to Hawaii, while Chin confronts Adam about his lingering connections to the Yakuza.
