‘Hawaii Five-0’ Cast: Daniel Dae Kim, Alex O’Loughlin Return For Season 8?

Hawaii Five-0 recently wrapped up Season 7 on an interesting note. The episode has revealed that Alex O’Loughlin’s character after having a diagnosis is told to be suffering from some radiation poisoning from the dirty bomb.

This scene from the finale has sent off speculations rife whether character Steve McGarrett returns for Season 8 or not. On the other hand, actor Daniel Dae Kim’s future on Hawaii Five-0 has come under speculation as he is executive producing ABC series The Good Doctor.

This medical drama is based on a South Korean TV series of the same name. The series is developed by David Shore and actor and producer Daniel Dae Kim. As the previous season of Hawaii Five-0 has mostly covered up the storylines of its major characters, these two characters are feared to be ending their stint on the series. But will this happen?
