Anyway... the producer (the guy who currently runs Criminal Minds) says he is not planning to re-invent the wheel... Someone will be cast to play Steve McGarrett's son, who now runs Five-O... and the classic TV theme song , ortiginally performed by the Ventures, will return with a 21st Century sound.
A couple of cool things you may or may not have known about the original Hawaii Five-O...
- There is no such police agency as "Five-O" in real life... It was a fictional state police investigative squad, named for Hawaii, the 50th state, or "five-o"... Hawaii, by the way, does not have a state police department.
- Hawaii Five-O is responsible for the creation of "Magnum, P.I.". When Five-O ran its course after many years on the air, CBS wanted another show based in Hawaii to replace it... Hence, the creation of Magnum. In "Magnum, P.I", Five-O and Steve McGarrett, Jack Lord's character, were mentioned on more than one occasion in tribute to the original show.
For you millennials too young to know from a REAL cop show... check out the greatest TV open and theme song of all time!
