Frank Bama is alive and well

From “Hawaii Five-0 Boss Shoots Down ‘Final Season’ Talk, Reveals Episode 150 Plan

Jimmy Buffet was serving not cheeseburgers in paradise but double orders of anxiety for Hawaii Five-0 fans, during a Friday appearance on the Today show.

While promoting his new “I Don’t Know” concert tour on the NBC morning program, Buffet — who recurs on H50 as helicopter pilot Frank Bama — repeatedly referred to the CBS drama’s upcoming Season 7 as “the last season,” and thus fretted over his character’s fate.

Five-0 showrunner Peter M. Lenkov took to Twitter to assure the entertainer that “Bama is alive and well… For many many MORE seasons,” effectively cutting the cancellation talk off at the knees.

“I don’t know where that came from,” Lenkov told TVLine afterward, laughing. “It was early in the morning and I think they were giving him margaritas or something!” during the tropical-themed segment.

  1. Love Jimmy Buffet,have several items ,including my fave t-shirts,which I bought in Margarita ville in Panama City Beach! My daughter is going to take me to the new Margarita ville opening this year in Dec. At Cayman Islands sometime in Jan. For my 65th Birthday. I hope Jimmy will be playing there live,in Jan. I am such a HUGE fan!!! I even bought me a Jimmy Buffet for president, t-shirt! Love,love,love, the man,his lifestyle,and all his music! Yes,I’m very proud to be a parrot-head!!!!!🍸🍔👍😍

    1. We were there 2 yrs ago….took over an hour and some minutes to play one Buffett song as I mentioned to the DJ as we left….”we get so many requests” he said. Fine! It’s Jimmy Buffett’s name dude and should be his music!

  2. So relieved that my favorite show and copter pilot will continue. Don’t think Jimmy was on the last season so it’s more than time to bring him back. Wonder where Jimmy got the wrong information on Hawaii 50’s demise?
