Hawaii Five-0: Season 8

Please note that the current news about Alex - including those about "Hawaii Five-0" - are usually just put on the NEWS page (by month).
The same applies for any "general" interviews with Alex or those that I've translated - You find them on the INTERVIEW page.
Below, you mainly find video interviews related specifically to "Hawaii Five-0" and video clips of the respective season, such as fan videos.
You may also want to check out the official H50 YouTube account from CBS - some clips are blocked for viewers outside the U.S. though.

Since Daniel (Chin) and Grace (Kono) left the show, there are major changes in the main cast, which are reflected in this collage. Ian, Meaghan and Beulah are new Five-0 team members in Season 8. Dennis, Kimee and Taylor were promoted to series regulars.
Here are two Five-0 Redux blogs (by my friend Wendie) about the changes:

Important Events and Dates related to Season 8

July 7, 2017: Start of filming for Season 8 & Traditional blessing ceremony
The blessing ceremony took place inside the Hawaii Film Studio. This year, for the first time, no press and media were present because H50 and CBS had experienced some unjustified criticism from various sides regarding the failed contract negotations with Daniel and Grace who left the show. H50 probably wanted to avoid unpleasant questions and also needed some time to sort things out within the team first.
I got a short but good message from a crew member and want to share it since it's positive and about Alex and the blessing:

Sept. 29, 2017: TV premiere of Season 8 on CBS
H50 will keep its time slot on Friday nights at 9/8 ET/PT after "MacGyver" - Both shows are produced by Peter Lenkov and will have another (bigger) crossover episode in Season 2 (MacGyver) resp. Season 8 (H50).

Nov. 10, 2017: Sunset-on-the-Beach Event on Queen's Beach in Waikiki
Sadly, the annual SOTB8 premiere of the first episode did not take place in September this year when many fans from abroad (incl. myself) were in Hawaii since they had booked their trip before the news came out that there wouldn't be an SOTB premiere in September. Well, lucky fans in Hawaii or those who were able to postpone their trips to the islands will get to attend an SOTB8 event (not the premiere, of course) on Nov. 10.
Here's a special page about the SOTB8:

Fans can look forward to a Season 9 which was officially confirmed on April 18 - a very special birthday gift to me :-)

 

Video clips - either from CBS or made by fans

These will be added after the start of the season, of course, since there is no material for videos yet - and fans need to be careful of how they use the material, anyway. Simply downloading and reposting the copyrighted, unedited video material is not permitted - a fact that some YouTube users simply ignore. I do enjoy edited fan-videos though with good music added to them because they are fun to watch when I don't have time to view full episodes on DVD.

Fan-video: Steve & dog Eddie - You are not alone (Gaby Evermore) 

Fan-video: McDanno in Season 1 to 8 - I'm only human (by 'Kasaneko') 

Fan-video: Hero Steve being "Confident" in Season 1 to 8 (by 'Karo McGarrett')

Fan-video: Five-0 in ep. 8.09 & 8.10 - On the brink of death (by Gaby Evermore) 

Fan-video: Five-0 in ep. 8.09 to 8.11 - "Breathing" (by 'H50 Freak')

Fan-video: McDanno always being there for each other like brothers (by 'Captain Dean') 

Fan-video: Navy SEAL McGarrett in ep. 8.24 (by 'Kate87')

Fan-video: McDanno helping each us in S1 to 8 ('apanparapenguin')
