The Real Reason Hawaii Five-0 Called It Quits

Hawaii five-o graced our screens for many years but that's recently come to an end in February twenty twenty it was announced that the tenth season would be the last for the popular show so why did the series come to an end and what did it have to do with star Alex O'Loughlin well a lot the catastrophe catastrophe how is this a good thing a report by deadline offered some insight into Alex O'Loughlin who portrayed Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett and his time on the show pointing out that it's not the first time the actor has considered calling it quits as recently as a couple of years ago it was speculated that the actor who was known to be having physical difficulty with the show's demands and suffered a serious back injury pretty early on in the show's run would depart fortunately he opted to stay on following a successful round of stem-cell treatment there is no way a good conscience I can walk away from this one at this point however a locklins body was telling him to quit and rather than replace him with a new partner for Scott Caan's Detective Sergeant Danny Danno Williams the series creatives decided that it was simply time to hang it up after all can anyone really see Dano running around with a new partner late so it gave me breakfast daddy that's funny round even kidding the rest of the cast may have been fairly fluid throughout the past ten years but the two leads have been together from the beginning sometimes it's best for shows to pull the plug rather than push on when they hit a wall and losing one of their main leads would certainly constitute such a wall Oh Lachlan spoke two years ago on his possible departure to TV Line pointing out how things had changed since the show's beginning he also describes the proverbial laundry list of injuries he sustained on the show ready for this one a lock when said I've blown both shoulders one me I've had my elbow tendon reattached I've got bulging discs in my neck and my back I don't know where to start I'm a mess and a lot of it's been really really hard I think back to when I was doing most of my own stunts in the first few years that was not a great idea but the physical exhaustion of working with injury and working huge hours day after day year after year the whole show has been extremely physically daunting I don't know how much longer I can do it after the announcement that the show would be ending a Lachlan shared a message for fans he said this show has been pretty much every waking moment for the last 10 years of my life everywhere I go on this planet in every language I am McGarrett to all these people what we've done what we've accomplished it's extraordinary I can't really put words to express my level of gratitude I'm just glad to have been a part of this a part of history and I'm going to miss it in to the fans I don't know how to thank you guys thank you for following us the way you have I'm going to miss you Aloha while networks may allow visionary creators and talented actors the freedom and budget to make exactly the kind of shows they want to make television is still a business broadcast networks like CBS aim to turn a profit by selling advertising space on its programs if it spends millions of dollars each week on a show that isn't bringing in the big audiences that it promised advertisers and for what it charged accordingly then that show is likely to get cancelled this is a big reason why long-running shows leave the air when they do as they no longer attract a big enough audience to justify its costs McMahon I don't know I don't know when it happened with something changed in regards to ending Hawaii five-o showrunner Peter and Len Cobb told TV Line I think the network just thought it was a good time there are so many different things that factor into this economics everything in other words the ratings for Hawaii five-o had dropped over its decade on the air at its peak of popularity in 2015 the show averaged 12 point two eight million weekly viewers by the 2018-2019 season that figure had dropped to just over 10 million and the first episode of the tenth and what would turn out to be the last season brought in just over 7 million pairs of eyeballs despite several factors indicating that Hawaii five-o was moving toward a close in its tenth season producers made plans for the future just in case CBS did decide to bring it back for one more round of episodes the final two installments of the show added a brand new character ex-marine Lincoln Cole portrayed by recurring MacGyver actor lance gross Steve McGarrett even asks him to hold down the fort in the event of his absence showrunner Peter M Len Cobb told TV Line quotes I thought he would be a great addition to the team and he called Cole quote the perfect sort of broken toy to complement the team in addition to moving : to focus the last episode of season 10 which became the Hawaii five-o series finale had initially been written to set up some eleventh season plot lines but when Len Cobb learned CBS ended the show he had to make some cuts he explained quote I have 12 minutes of that show that are not in there that are on the cutting room floor Peter Lang qov one of the main brains and producers behind the popular show specifically mentioned a Lachlan in his statement when the cancellation was announced another clue that the actor is the main reason why the show was coming to an end he said my eternal gratitude to our cast led by our hero Alex O'Loughlin the writers the production team our CBS Ohana and most importantly you the fans who allowed us to come to work with pride and made our series such a success David Stav the president of CBS television studios had shared that fans could expect a big send-off with a quote opportunity to say goodbye to their favorite characters fans indeed got that in the two-hour April 3rd series finale there was action emotion and intrigue aplenty and even a few
