We are back to wrap up last week! It was another good week of behind the scenes goodies and once again Hawaii Isla 808 provided the fans some really great highlights. There were many other sources as well as a few that sent us pics directly to share with everyone We have pulled it all together here.
The new team, still headed by Steve (Alex) like it has always been, showed up in a few places as they wrapped the season eight premiere and began episode 8.02 and one scene of 8.03. There was also news about the new cast roles and although we typically only include Alex pics for these wrap ups, we find the news of the new cast very relevant to his life on the set and have included that below, too.
Now on to the good stuff. Although it is doubtful anyone will be complaining this post is really long as there were so many pics this past week.
Behind the Scenes
On Tuesday, Alex and Scott were shooting at One Tower in Kakakko and although the shoot was mostly inside the high rise, Hawaii Isla 808 managed to capture some good shots and a few videos. Here they are:
Here are the he videos from that day.
Continuing with what Hawaii- Isla-808 provided everyone, on Thursday he was able to get them at both their shooting locations. Earlier in the afternoon, they were shooting in Kakakko again on the streets. Then Alex and Scott along with a returning guest star was shooting at the shrimp truck Thursday night. Here are the ones that Hawaii Isla 808 shot.
Pics sent to us
Since the Thursday night shoot was so public by the Hilton beach park, a lot of other pics also came out of it including some that were sent to us from various people. Here is that set.
From Florencia Guida
Here are some from Janelle Prater-Burnett who went out of her way while on vacation to get these pics out for everyone to see. You might have already seen the few we shared that were of snapshots but here are the high quality ones and many more too. Thank you Janelle! Here are the ones of Alex and the rest we will share on social media at another time.
There has already been many comments about this one she captured as it is so sweet. Unfortunately it came off her cell so not as high quality as the other ones but it is still one of the best shots of the night in our opinion.
Pics from others
From this pic and the ones above it looks like they are going with a shorter look for Alex’s hair for at least this episode. It could be a short term thing based on the new SEAL coming on board and maybe part of the storyline around that, or it could be the look for season 8. Time will tell.
A fan caught up with Alex on another day it seems.
Here is a short IG stories video from Derek Mio who is a guest actor on episode 8.02.
Some great pics of Alex, Scott, and Chi with a young Hawaii Five 0 fan.
Another one from the day with this young fan of the show and especially Alex as the post said Alex is one of his favorite actors and even “plays McGarrett “as a game. Check out the post. Also note that the shirt change was because they were shooting a scene for 8.03 at the shrimp truck while it was all set up.
Here is a far away shot of Alex and Scott while in Kawela between takes on July 13th.
That is it for the Alex stuff but as mentioned above we would also mention the new cast members. Below is the tweet that we shared upon the official announcement on Wednesday. Many fans had already surmised that Meaghan Rath was the new Tani from some of the behind the scenes we saw last week, but the other two announcements came as quite a surprise.
The fans have all grown to love Adam over the years and Ian is one of the nicest guys you will find in the industry, so we are quite pleased to welcome him to the show as a regular. Beulah Koale is more of a newer face to everyone but congrats to him for adding to his resume in this exciting role. We look forward to the new stories that will come about and seeing them all behind the scenes with Alex and the rest of the cast. Since they are all pretty active on social media, you should follow them if you already do not.

Wishing them all the very best as they get to work with the best cast and crew on the best show on TV! Aloha!
There was also news that Dennis Chun (Duke), Taylor Wiley (Kamekona), and Kimmee Balmilero (Noelani), were made main cast members,. Congrats.
We appreciate all the pics that came from this week’s location shooting and all the people that shared their photos especially those that sent them to us to share with everyone. Those type of photos typically mean more Alex pics from what normally would be private accounts. Even those that have asked to stay anonymous in the past and will be in the future means more pics for everyone so again thank you!
Have a great week as we enter the new one and the expected wrap of 8.02 and continuation of 8.03. It has only been a couple of weeks since the cast has been back but the fans are being spoiled with lots and lots of new pics. Looking forward to see what this week will bring, Take care!
