    Hawaii Five-O DVD news: Rumors for Hawaii Five-O - Season 4 | TVShowsOnDVD.com

    Per tvshowsondvd.com, CBS Paramount is looking at June for a season 4 release, coming 5 months after the January season 3 release.

    This season had another great 2-hour espionage thriller with Wo Fat, along with a number of great guest stars. Some highlights: Buddy Ebsen guest stars in a great episode about a traveler's check scam, Herbert Lom guest stars in the season opener as a millionaire who is implicated in a murder, and Jackie Cooper has a nice turn about a man who is framed for a murder by a devious doctor. Also, one of my favorite all-time episodes is featured this season, about a clever psychopath who leaves cryptic clues announcing his plans to murder someone and Five-0 must race the clock to figure out who the victim will be.

    While not quite as strong as seasons 2 and 3, it still is a very solid season packed with a number of great episodes, and completes 1/3 of the 12-season series. This also marks Kono's last season, and recurring characters Duke and John Manicote make their first appearances starting this season.

    Bravo to CBS Paramount for putting out 4 quality releases in the span of 16 months. Let's cross our fingers and hope the next 4 seasons are equally fast (season 5 has the classic 3-part Vashon episode).

    I am in for season 4. Might have to NetFlix it for season 5 and onward. The Kono years seemed the best to me, just so happens. I know the creator of the series died during season 5. Maybe thats why it lost some steam for me.

    I am fully expecting that to occur somewhere around season 5 or 6, and will continue to purchase them even if they double the price because I love it so much. THere are very few other shows I can say that about. Hopefully the sales attrition between seasons is below 50%.

    I'm in at least until season 8 or 9. I think I can live without the last couple of years, certainly the 12th and final season.

    Wow! Love the sunset artwork. It really IS eye-catching. I also like the fact that the release date should be right around the same time that a certain online etailer has their semi-annual 20% off sale (fingers crossed).

    The upcoming S4 release will be a definite purchase for me-- I am a huge "Five-O" fan myself, and I already have 1-3, so #4 should fit in quite nicely.

    This is now up for pre-order at Amazon.

    And perhaps one of the mods could change the subject title...seeing as it's release is no longer a rumor.

    I am still working my way through Season 2, but I am happy to see this show on such a fast track for its releases. It's a much better problem to fall a little behind instead of being frustrated by a slow release schedule or having a favorite series abandoned.

    TV Shows On DVD should be getting a shot of the rear packaging any day now, given how many of CBS's other June DVD's have had them appearing on the site recently.

    There's also a rumor on the Five-0 home page based on comments from a studio insider that Season 5 is being prepped for mid-November/early-December. Season 5, as all Five-0 fans know, features the classic mob story arc 'V For Vashon', one of their greatest storylines. Hopefully this rumor is accurate. That means we would have 5 seasons in 20 months, and be almost at the halfway point in the series.
