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.

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.

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.
