Fall TV Preview 2016: The Scoop on 58 Returning Shows

‘Hawaii Five-0’ (Sept. 23, 9 p.m., CBS)

This Season’s Theme: “Everybody is taking stock of their lives, especially McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin),” says showrunner Peter Lenkov, “And asking themselves if it’s worth it.”

Where We Left Off: For McGarrett, that soul-searching is a result of his near-death experience. For Chin (Daniel Dae Kim), it’s his promise to look after Gabriel’s daughter. Then, there’s that mysterious appearance by Wo Fat’s father…

Coming Up: Six years of being good at their job has taken its toll, says Lenkov, “And I think they’re all ready to make changes to their lives.” Kono (Grace Park) will be asking herself if it’s time to start a family and McGarrett wonders if everything he’s done has cost him the good stuff in his life. “They’re a little more mature this season.”

The Big Bad: Lenkov says the first four episodes introduce a villain who is “very, very different. A more cerebral villain” than we’ve seen in the past and who will be with the show “way beyond that.” – RC
