Hawaii Five-0 Prequel: Sort of Coming Soon!

at . Comments

Hawaii Five-0 has scheduled both a return and a flashback.

As previously announced, Wo Fat will pop up again in a few weeks, forced to start from scratch after a stint in prison.

McGarrett on the Loose

And now Executive Producer Peter Lenkov tells TV Guide that his program will delve deep into the past on an upcoming installment, airing what some could even consider a prequel to the series premiere.

"The flashbacks take place hours before the pilot began in Korea," Lenkov says. "You'll get to see McGarrett in training as a Navy SEAL. The idea is that McGarrett had actually gone into North Korea with another Navy SEAL, a man who saved his life and was killed there... We'll see what actually happened with Hesse in Korea."

Following a Monday off, Hawaii Five-0 returns next week with "Mohai."

It should be interesting to see what happened right before we picked up McG and Hesse in the pilot episode. I love this show also, and hope it lasts many, many season. I like the direction it is headed as well. I love the action, but what drives a show is the character development and history. It's what makes us want to watch more.


I love Hawaii Five0 and hope it will last as long as the first series did.


The pilot episode of H50 is my most favorite ever. I had never seen any of these actors before and this show stole my heart. I'm thrilled to know that they are creating this episode to tell us what led to the capture of Anton Hesse, Bravo! I've also learned how to navigate to YouTube and to read H50 blogs. What fun this is! I'm hoping this show lasts a long, long time.
