CBS has announced that Hawaii Five-0 will end this year after 10 seasons on the air.
Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan have been with the show throughout the entire series and their contracts end with the current season.
Alex suffered a back injury during one of the early seasons and he still is dealing with the pain from that accident. While he felt able to continue through season 10, he decided it was not possible to do additional seasons, according to Deadline.
Instead of finding a new star to replace Alex on the show, CBS decided it was time to end the series.
“This show has been pretty much every waking moment for the last 10 years of my life,” Alex said in a statement. “Everywhere I go on this planet, in every language, I am McGarrett to all these people. What we’ve done, what we’ve accomplished, it’s extraordinary. I can’t really put words to express my level of gratitude. I’m just glad to have been a part of this, a part of history and I’m going to miss it. And to the fans, I don’t know how to thank you guys. Thank you for following us the way you have. I’m going to miss you. Aloha.”
The series finale will be a two-hour episode airing on Friday, April 3.
