Don't let the above headline fool you, Hawaii Five-0 Fanatics.
Max isn't going anywhere.
But with Catherine gone, and the team therefore down to a single female, executive producer Peter Lenkov tells TV Guide that he has plans to rectify this situation.
"Max is going to be training a young female medical examiner," Lenkov previews. "It'll be somebody who will be there at crime scenes and be a voice in the ME's office."
Look for this unnamed addition to be as quick and intelligent as Max, which could be frustrating news for Danny - but great news for viewers!
Hawaii Five-0 Season 5 kicks off at 9/8c on Friday, September 26.
Until then, you can always watch Hawaii Five-0 online to catch up.
