The unexpected end of the popular series Hawaii Five-0 left more questions than answers, however, the showrunner of the series assured that the cancellation of the program was related to the loss of audience and money, especially for this reason.
the popular series Hawaii Five-0 which was broadcast from 2010 to 2020, it is a reboot of its original version from 1968, both programs were broadcast on the television network CBS. However, the most recent version was a great success worldwide, but little by little it was losing audience and money, which led to its cancellation. This was confirmed by the showrunner Peter M Lenkov.
It is true that all broadcast networks like CBS aim to make a profit by selling advertising space on all the shows that are on their broadcast schedule. But shows that don’t usually have a significant audience to pay for production costs and actor fees are often cancelled, something that may have happened with Hawaii Five-0.
On top of that, some of the Five-0 cancellation rumors have to do with the character’s lead actor Steve McGarrett, Alex O’Loughlinwho suffered an accident on his back while filming some scenes for the program, something that may have led him to suffer from physical problems for life, in addition to the fact that his contract would end in 2020.
However, according to comments from the showrunner of Hawaii Five-0Peter M. Lenkov, the cancellation of the program would also have to do with audience problems, in fact, it was from its seventh season that the series gradually lost its viewers, affecting the budget and profits established for the police drama.
“There are so many different things that go into this — the economy, everything.”
In other words, the ratings of Hawaii Five-0 they had declined during its decade on the air. According to the platform in charge of data collection and television transmission (Nilsen), in 2015, the program averaged 12.28 million weekly viewers. But, for season 8 that aired in 2018, the numbers dwindled to just over 10 million. While the tenth and final season got just over 7 million in its audience.
Undoubtedly the popularity of Hawaii Five-0 was going down not only because of its story, but also because of the actors of Chin Ho Kelly, Daniel Dae-Kim Y Grace Park like Kono Kalakaua, it was a blow to the show and the fans who liked these characters. Interestingly, after the end of the police drama, the actor Alex O’Loughlin has not appeared again in any other program or in some of his social networks, which the fans suppose that it could be due to the problems of his back injury.
