Hawaii Five-0 to Let Viewers Choose Episode Ending

at . Comments

It may not be Star Trek, but Hawaii Five-0 is about to boldly go where no television show has gone before.

Executive Producer Peter Lenkov has revealed in a statement that the CBS drama will return on January 14 with an extra special episode, as viewers will actually be able to choose the hour's ending in real time.

"I've always felt the most fun aspect of watching a mystery is trying to figure out whodunit," said Peter Lenkov. "Now the Hawaii Five-0 viewers will actually get the chance to tell us who they think committed the crime and we will listen. I love that our dedicated and attentive fans will actually play a part in resolving our story."

The episode will center on the murder of a professor, with the team chasing down three suspects; after the motives of each are made known, viewers will be able to visit CBS.com or tweet who they believe the killer to be.

The votes will the be tallied and the winner broadcast (separately for East/Central and Pacific viewings, with all three conclusions available on CBS.com after the show airs in each time zone).

What do you think of this unique idea for Hawaii Five-0 Season 3?

i like to see the character catherine go back to the ship and she and steve end their relationship and the ending should be dramatic he is solving an intense crime and needs to focus his attention on it, the catherine/steve thing is high school and the team needs a dramtic end to season 3 of crime solving


Something should be done about the annoying music. I'd rather have none at all than what you've got.


Nice to see they are trying something different, however I fail to see how this will work for international viewers and reruns? Will they choose the voted ending as the one for dvd and syndication?


I think we should continue H-5-0 for another season, I really enjoy the show,and I think A.O'Loughlin is c u t e!!! Letting people vote for an ending, good idea!


Cool idea

Mrs cleaver

Cool! I plan to vote for whatever ending requires Steve remove his shirt for the longest period of time...


Who are the quest stars for this episode?


Umm but Two guys and a girl already did the concept. I like the idea but it has been done
