Book 'em, Dano! Hawaii Five-0 is coming back to CBS. The network is currently at work developing a 2.0 version of the classic cop series, and the writers behind it include two of the guys from Fringe, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci.
I feel pretty confident about the cult favorite's return given that it's in such capable hands, but with yesterday's news that Southland got canceled, can any police drama — even one with established fans — survive against TV titans CSI and Law & Order? Here's hoping Hawaii Five-O may just stand a chance. I'm sure a few die-hard fans of the '70s original will be a bit unhappy about the new, undoubtedly slicked-up version, but as long as they leave the theme song alone, I'll be happy.
How do you feel about a remake? Do you think it can last up against the other police series?
