In May 2019, CBS ordered a tenth season of the series. The series ended with the tenth season, also because Alex O'Loughlin decided not to extend his expiring contract for an eleventh season.
The focus of the series is the highly decorated former naval officer Steve McGarrett, who is tasked by the governor of Hawaii with the formation of a special unit to fight organized crime. He is recruiting former police officer Chin Ho Kelly, who was forced to leave the police after unjustified allegations of bribery, police officer Danny "Danno" Williams, who followed his divorced wife and daughter from New Jersey to Hawaii, and young police officer Kona "Kono" Kalakaua who has just finished her education and is Chin's cousin. They call themselves Five-0 and work together on a variety of different criminal cases.
In season 2, Agent Lori Weston joins the team, but leaves it when a case goes too far and the governor gives her the choice between Five-0 and the state of Hawaii.
When McGarrett's friend Catherine Rollins resigns from the Navy in Season 4, she also joins the task force after a short time. But when she was recruited by the CIA on an aid trip to Afghanistan, she accepted the offer and left the team.
In Season 5, Captain Lou Grover, former captain of the HPD's SWAT team, and Jerry Ortega, a school friend of Chin and a conspiracy theorist, join the Five-0 Task Force. The latter received his badge after 2 years in the team and is therefore officially part of Five-0.
In season 7, Masi Oka, Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park left the series, Kim and Park because of unfair pay and Oka because he wanted to turn to other projects.
These exits were explained in the series in such a way that the coroner Max Bergman (Masi Oka) moves to Madagascar to join an aid organization there; Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim) moves to San Francisco to lead his own task force and Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park) travels the mainland picking up trafficking rings.
Police high school dropout Tani Rey and former Navy SEAL Junior Reigns are found to replace the two missing investigators at Five-0, and Dr. Noelani Cunha set. Later on, Kono's ex-husband Adam Noshimuri, a long-time close friend of the team and a former high animal of the Hawaiian Yakuza, also joins Five-0.

The interior recordings have mostly been made in the Hawaii Film Studio at Diamond Head since 2012 . This was previously done in the Honolulu Advertiser Building . The building that serves as the exterior backdrop for Steve McGarrett's house is in Aina Haina, near Honolulu. For indoor shots, the interiors were recreated in the Hawaii Film Studio . The Kamekona “shrimp truck” stands on Waikīkī Beach and replaces a local food truck on shooting days. Images of the Halawa Correctional Facility , ʻIolani Palace , Ala Wai Harbor , Dillingham Airfield , Daniel K. Inouye International Airport and the Hilton Hawaiian Village beach resort are also frequently used. The Kualoa Ranch , a 4,000-acre private nature reserve on the east coast of Oahu, is used for jungle shots and non-Hawaii scenes. Beach shots are mainly taken in the Ala Moana Regional Park and Waimanalo Beach . The USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Punchbowl Crater were used several times as military locations . In October 2013, some scenes that were supposed to take place in Hong Kong were shot in Vancouver . In spring 2019, recordings were made for an episode of the tenth season in Los Angeles . For other locations such as Prague or London , appropriate backdrops were recreated on Oahu.

Hawaii Five-0 in other media
- If you attract the attention of the police in the video game Grand Theft Auto V ( GTA V ) and receive a wanted star, one of the protagonists , Franklin Clinton, sometimes says "Shit, Five-0" ( German damned, Five-0 ).
In the first three weeks after the start of the season and thus the start of the series for Hawaii Five-0 , the series was recorded the most frequently of all programs shown in the USA. The series received mostly good reviews, scoring 65 out of 100 on Metacritic .
Spiegel Online said that some of the leading actors' talent was wasted. "The investigative steps of the unleashed hula cops, which are straightforward and without narrative finesse, serve to fill the gaps between the regularly recurring action and torture scenes, which are not even remotely clothed in political dimensions or ethical dilemmas, such as at 24. "
"The aces up your sleeve are not only the high production value, but also producers like Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci ( Fringe ) plus a star cast, plus a director (Len Wiseman) who knows how to create visual style."
