Hawaii Five-0 star says filming the series finale was “super-emotional”
"There were a lot of tears."
Hawaii Five-0 star Katrina Law has admitted that it was “super-emotional” filming the series finale.
Last month, CBS confirmed that the reboot of the classic cop series would come to an end after its current and tenth season.
Sadly for Law, she’d only get one run of playing former staff sergeant Quinn Lui, having joined the show at the start of season 10. Nevertheless, she still got emotional when filming the finale.
“It was kind of a magical number to go out on,” the former Arrow actress told the New York Post. “[It was] super-emotional. There were a lot of tears, tears out of joy. We got to say our proper goodbyes.”
Speaking about the show’s cancellation, president of CBS Entertainment Kelly Kahl previously said: “It’s never easy to say goodbye to a hit franchise that carried on the legacy of the original with such distinction while establishing its own signature style.
“From episode one, Hawaii Five-0 has been a huge success for us. Thanks to the amazing talents of the producers, writers, cast and crew, it has played a key role for a decade on our schedule and helped establish our powerhouse Friday night.”
He added: “We cannot be prouder of its quality, longevity and are thankful for the passionate fan-devotion it inspired.”
Peter Lenkov, the series’ executive producer, said: “Hawaii Five-0 has been such a blessing to me and all of the people who have worked on this incredible show.
“I truly learned the meaning of ‘ohana’ as the viewers embraced us and the people of Hawaii welcomed us with the privilege to film on their shores. I am forever indebted to the creative genius that was Leonard Freeman who gave us such a beautiful story to begin with.
“And my eternal gratitude to our cast, led by our hero Alex O’Loughlin, the writers, the production team, our CBS ohana, and most importantly YOU, the fans, who allowed us to come to work with pride and made our series such a success. Mahalo.”
