TVLINE | You recently hinted at your intention to exit Hawaii Five-0 after any potential Season 8. (Season 7 is currently up in the ratings vs. last year.) Is that still your plan?
Alex O’Loughlin: Absolutely. I’m just trying to make it through the end of [Season] 7! [Five-0] is really, really wonderful, but it is an action show, I’m the main guy, and I defy anybody to do what I’ve done for as long I’ve done it and hold out the way I have. Dude, I was a fit, strong, healthy guy when I started the show, and I still am, but you sustain what you sustain. It’s part of the gig.

Will Alex O’Loughlin’s departure signal the end of Hawaii Five-0, or could the procedural continue into Season 8 without him? Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of H50 Season 8…

Alex O’Loughlin states his plan is to leave after Season 8, which is the next season. He can still do one more year and then quit. I think, based on the ratings and the quality of the show, it will get one more season, (which is announced as the final season), from CBS and probably end in 2018.
