The occasion that followers were waiting for is eventually right here. On Jan. 3, the Five-0 group will get together with Hawaii’s most well-known personal attention in a unique Magnum P.I. and Hawaii Five-0 crossover event.
So, what can we anticipate whenever McGarrett and Danno encounter Magnum and Higgins? Prepare yourself for a rigorous couple of hours of tv.
National safety are at risk whenever some one steals a summary of undercover CIA representatives
Things kick down with a bout of Hawaii Five-0. Someone has actually taken a summary of undercover CIA representatives. With the brands for the representatives prone to being revealed — jeopardizing national protection along the way — Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) converts to Magnum (Jay Hernandez), Higgins (Perdita Weeks), Rick (Zachary Knighton), and TC (Stephen Hill) to recuperate the list.
A Five-0 member is kidnapped, plus the CIA gets involved
In the crossover’s second hour, the stakes have greater when it comes to Five-0 staff when Junior (Beulah Koale) is kidnapped by those that desire to use him as control to recuperate the menu of representatives. The CIA doesn’t wish the others of Five-0 to interfere, so that they locate one other officials. Tani (Meaghan Rath) and Quinn (Katrina Law) turn to Magnum and Higgins for help.
Turning crossover dreams into reality
The idea of a crossover involving the two Hawaii-set CBS shows has already been brewing since Magnum P.I.’s first season in 2018. The show’s manufacturers had been particularly getting excited about a gathering between Magnum and McGarrett.
“The plan is to ultimately introduce those two characters, have them in a crossover episode, and at least have them know of each other,” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov explained during a panel at Comic-Con in 2018. “That’s the fun of the fact they are both ex-Navy Seals.”
It took a bit for the pieces for the crossover to get into location, Lenkov told TVLine. But the last result must be well worth the await followers.
“It’s a big-stakes story that really feels like a two-hour movie,” he said.
A future relationship?
Could the crossover also give beginning to a different commitment? Apparently, there’s some stress between Quinn and Rick. And Lenkov informed TVLine that the stars said they’d be up for a romance.
“They have a bit of chemistry,” he stated. “After recording, they both stated, ‘Hey, is this going to go anywhere…?’ Because it absolutely was a lot of fun.”
While here is the very first official crossover between Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I., a few figures through the previous, including Duke (Dennis Chun) and Noelani (Kimee Balmilero), have actually made appearances on Magnum. Five-0 and MacGyver (that also airs on CBS on Friday evenings) crossed over in 2017.
Hawaii Five-0 airs Friday, Jan. 3 at 8/7c on CBS, accompanied by Magnum P.I. at 9/8c.
