[ # ] Could next season be Hawaii Five-0’s last?
November 4th, 2016 under Alex O'Loughlin, CBS

Before Alex O’Loughlin starred in Hawaii Five-0, he had two failed series on CBS, Moonlight and Three Rives, that only lasted a season. Then he got the crime procedural and it is in its 7th season. It has been seven painful seasons for him and he told ETonline that he only has one more in him.

He said, “I have an end date. I signed two more years, seasons seven and eight, and then I’m done. I got too many injuries to contend with. This show is really important to me and I’m pretty sure the world can see that with what I bring. I really care about these characters, I’ve never phoned in my performances. Every single day, no matter how tired I am, I give it everything I can to make it as good as it can be but that takes a toll. I think if I’d have been an actor who didn’t care, I’d have less gray hair and I’d be a lot less tired. But I’m really tired. I do a lot of heavy lifting on the show, I have a harder schedule than anyone else but that’s just the way it is for No. 1. That’s cool, but it has to end.”

An example would be that the Australian native claims that after a surgery he had from an injury sustained from the drama, he went to work the next day and worked as normal.
If he keeps his word about departing the show next season, I would find it hard to continue without him. Not that the other cast members are not good enough to carry the show, it is just his show to carry. Two of CBS dramas lost their leads in the last year, and they are feeling the ratings pinch without their leading men and I don’t think this one can go on without theirs. Do you think it could?
