HONOLULU PULSE STAFF / firstname.lastname@example.org
“Hawaii Five-0” executive producer Peter Lenkov and CBS publicity officials confirmed Monday that the Oahu-based television series will be back for a sixth season.
After weeks of silence from the network, bloggers and fans took to social media to share their feelings on the prospect of the show not returning. CBS had originally said it would not discuss the fate of “Five-0” until it revealed its fall lineup to advertisers.
That all changed with one Twitter update from Lenkov.

Season five included a significant milestone for “Five-0”: The show celebrated the competition of its 100th episode last fall.
The season wrapped up Friday with back-to-back episodes. Production is expected to resume in July.
While both CBS and state film office officials will not discuss spending by specific productions, state officials have estimated “Five-0” spends approximately $60 million in Hawaii over the course of each season.
