Hawaii Five-0 season 2 casting starts now!

Update: Peter Lenkov leaks some Hawaii Five-0 Season 2 spoilers at PitchCon.org.

Alan Baltes is a casting agent who gets first hand info on casting calls, so I’d say this report is probably legit.  It’s not an announcement of the second season, but it’s a good sign.  Thanks to @lankyguy for the tip.

From Alan Baltes’ blog:

The CBS crime drama “Hawaii 5-0” is currently in production on season 2 and casting for principal actors, day players, extras, and stand-ins is underway. The series regulars are mostly cast out of Los Angeles, and the rest of the casting is done in Hawaii. Shooting takes place in Oahu, Hawaii.

101st Street Productions and Kurtzman Orci Paper are the production companies behind the series which has received mostly positive reviews, although recent ratings have dropped far off from the first season drawing 19.34 million viewers for episode 15.

“Hawaii Five-0” won the “Favorite New TV Drama” at the 37th People’s Choice Awards on January 5, 2011. Series star Scott Caan was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film for his role as Danny. Actor Mark Dacascos, who played the role of Wo Fat in four episodes of season one, has been a fan favorite and will hopefully return for a series regular in season 2.

    I soooo hate CBS why is it taking them soooo long to give the green light for filming even production and casting agents know there is a 2nd season if this is true

    CBS Cares yeah right

    Lol I love how they always take ep. 15 as an exemple of the good rates the show has.
    Mahalo for the info Officer !

      As good as the weekly numbers are, too bad those numbers aren’t consistent weekly numbers…

        They’re very good for a first season. Better than Castle (its prime competitor) and the Mentalist a couple of years ago actually, and not that much less than NCIS ten years ago. If good scripts keep coming, we can hope next season will go up to 12 mil viewers/ep or more.

    Are ratings reliable? How come good shows don’t get good ratings. Production companies have their mind of their own. CBS in particular and I’d so much want to say to them “don’t start any shows if you keep them going”.. Hawaii Five 0 is an excellent show, do you really have to rely on ratings to make your decsions?

    • officer808 says:

      I think the honest answer is yes, because those numbers are what advertisers are looking at. No audience, no advertisers, and no advertisers means no profit. 😦

  6. Shelby says:

    I soo want to be in this showw!! I can’t wait for season 2!! 😦 Ahhh!!!

  7. Robyn Jones says:

    I love, love, love this show. I would love to do some writing for this show too. Does anyone know anyone who can get me in as a writing asst. I have the whole summer off and I have 2 scripts ready for criticizing.

  8. jag says:

    I love the show, hope season 2 is as addictive as 1

  9. spidermaw (BKK,Thailand) says:

    I enjoy this show and all the first season episodes very much. I wish to see more of the intelligent plot and unpredictable way of proble solving in the second season. Looking forward to seeing the new season soon.

  10. They should include viewers in Hawaii for the national Nielsen ratings. But because the state doesn’t have enough viewers (all 1 million of us), it does not count, but it SHOULD count !
