Who ELSE is Returning to Hawaii Five-0?

Ed Asner won't be the only big name returning to Hawaii Five-0 this fall.

William Keck of TV Guide Magazine reports that Taryn Manning will reprise her role as Mary Ann McGarrett at some point, stopping by the island once again to see for herself that her mother is actually alive.

As previously reported, Christine Lahti has landed this major Season 3 role, as she'll face plenty of questions from Steve and Mary Ann following a 20-year absence from their lives.

Manning, meanwhile, was actually slated to be a Hawaii Five-0 series regular when filming on the CBS drama began, but her character was mostly written out for storyline purposes. She did show up for one episode last season.

I agree on the mistrust or hard feelings. I guess there will be some accusations too. I can't imagine what made mom vanish for so many years. The other scenario it comes to my mind is that Joe is mom's partner in many ways (just a guess). Chin is going to have a tough time. I'm curious if he can keep his calm and balance in this period.


@Martinelli....she does get into a lot. Now Mom will be there to see what has happened to her little girl. I can't wait to see the reactions of both Steve and Mary. There has to be some mistrust or hard feelings towards Mom McG. It will add some good story telling along with everything else that is happening. I've noticed in the shots that I've seen, that Chin is not wearing his usual Hawaiian shirts. I wonder if thats a sign of his personality change that the writers were referring to.


I wonder what kind of trouble is she getting into this season?
