The Lenkoverse is again on monitor for an additional two-show team-up.
Although a full-on crossover between CBS’ Hawaii 5-0 and Magnum P.I. didn’t come to fruition throughout the latter’s freshman run, Peter M. Lenkov — the showrunner for each of the Aloha State-based procedurals — informed TVLine as a part of our Fall Preview Q&A that he’s resolved to creating it occur this TV season, and “sooner reasonably than later.”
When final we spoke, Lenkov stated that the writers rooms had simply begun bandying about concepts. Now, weeks later, the prolific producer has handed alongside this replace: “We have now narrowed down a narrative.”
Lenkov’s 5-0 reboot beforehand has crossed over with CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles (not a present he runs) and, extra not too long ago, his personal MacGyver reboot (in a singular March 2017 episode that noticed Chin and Kono giving Mac & Co. an help). Now, if Lenkov has his druthers, a two-part crossover between 5-0 (getting into Season 10) and Magnum — airing back-to-back on Fridays this fall, with MacGyver on maintain for midseason—will happen.
However till then, look ahead to some micro-crossovers. For instance, 5-0‘s Kamekona (performed by Taylor Willy), Duke (Dennis Chun) and Noelani (Kimee Balmilero) are all set to pay further visits to Magnum, as they did final season. New to the crossover combine, in the meantime, are 5-0‘s Shawn Mokuahi Garnett (whose Flippa will make his Magnum debut) and visitor star William Forsythe, who will reprise his 5-0 function of P.I. Harry Brown in an early November episode of the sophomore drama.
Are you able to say aloha to a correct 5-0/Magnum meet-up?
