Hawaii Five-0 Location Scouting (and Teasing Season Six) with Timmy Chinn, Part II


When we left Chinn in Part I, he was scouting for locations for Season Six of Hawaii Five-0. In the first episode of that upcoming season, Chinn teased, “They (the writers and producers) wrote the script a certain way for a certain location.

I can’t tell you where they are, but it’s not particularly uncommon for certain initial locations not

I spent some time chatting with Julie about what comes up this season, why she loves the show, and what she might be up to next! What can

CBS Answers Long-Awaited Renewal Questions


As CBS unveiled its new series for the 2015-16 television season’s lineup at the Upfronts in New York City, it announced the renewal of 22 returning favorites. Among them were the Lenkov/Orci/Kurtzman-driven Hawaii Five-0 and the Tom Selleck helmed Blue Bloods, both returning for a fifth season, both airing on Friday night. Because of the ratings dip for both these series, particularly Hawaii Five-0, a return was questionable. However, with a 9.48 million viewership average for the season, Five-0 (the
