“Hawaii Five-0” fans, set your DVRs for Sept. 24 because that’s when CBS will premiere its third season of the popular crime drama.
The series will air in its regular Monday time slot — 9 p.m. in Hawaii.
Filming began Monday in Manoa with a traditional Hawaiian blessing, a new cast member — Christine Lahti as Doris McGarrett — and a smiling, healthy-looking Alex O’Loughlin. O’Loughlin took a short break near the end of season two to deal with a prescription pain medication problem but returned for the final two episodes.
There is still no word yet on whether CBS will hold a Sunset on the Beach red carpet premiere for Hawaii fans. Both of the show’s previous network premieres were preceded by advance screenings on the beach at Waikiki. The events were attended by thousands of fans, including many who traveled from the mainland.
