Who is Returning to Hawaii Five-0?

at . Comments

The major news surrounding Hawaii Five-0 Season 3 has already been revealed: yes, we'll meet Steve McGarrett's mother and, oh yes, she'll be played by Emmy winner Christine Lahti.

But in its latest Mega Buzz column, TV Guide reveals another fun casting nugget:

Ed Asner will reprise the role of smuggler August March, the same role he reprised last season after he originated it on the original Hawaii Five-0.

Look for McGarrett to seek March's assistance when a pair of priceless paintings are stolen - and for a kidnapping, hostage situation and shootout to result from the crime.

We've also learned the title of the Hawaii Five-0 Season 3 premiere: "La O Na Makuhine." It will air some time this September.

When is the Hawaii Five O season 3 coming back on Mnet Series?


The ratings say Hawaii Five-O Season 2 gets an A+!!!!!!


I liked Ed Asner last season so look forward to seeing him again though overall I do hope they cut back on the big guest stars this season. Disappointed that Catherine won't be part of the team. I think she could have been a great addition. Hopefully the stories and writing improve this season. Not really looking forward to Moma McGarrett at all. I find it totally rediculous that Joe was protecting this women from one man for 20 years and an insult to Steve that he couldn't trust him with the fact that his mother was alive.


I love Hawaii 6 O and want everyone of them to come back.


It will be great to see Ed Asner back. He did a great job. I wonder if he helps or helps himself again. That was a big surprise, I did not see coming, when he shot the girl who got Mary involved in the diamond smuggling. I'm also glad that Peter L cleared up Catherine not being on the team, but helping out the team while still being in the Navy. Maybe those that were upset can relax now. This is why I prefer to see what they do, before going off on something that has not happened yet. I'm really excited for this season, a lot of great stories. It's good to see them back at work.
