From TVLine.com: “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.
