Hawaii Five-0 Season 6 Promo Features Pirates, Prisoners... and a Proposal?

Hawaii Five-0‘s Season 6 premiere is one to… treasure, based on this exclusive look at the first promo.

The CBS drama’s Friday, Sept. 25 opener — titled ”Mai ho`oni i ka wai lana mâlie” (“Do Not Disturb the Water That Is Tranquil”) — is “loosely based on a legend that pirates attacked the island in the 1880s,” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov told TVLine as part of our Fall Preview Q&A, “so we actually open up the season seeing that pirate attack in a flashback. It’s our version of Pirates of the Caribbean, where pirates are attacking the palace and the streets of Waikiki. And that sort of launches us into a modern-day treasure hunt for what they had stolen.”

Also glimpsed in the promo are newlyweds Kono and Adam, whose honeymoon period appears short-lived, while romance is obviously also in the air for a recently reunited couple, Steve and Catherine. But might the idea McGarrett floats by Danny go awry? As Lenkov told me, “There’s a big change that’s going to happen in their relationship.”
