  • Mike

    Is Grace Park not gonna be on the show anymore?

  • AniMatsuri

    She and (unfortunately)Scott Caan just weren’t able to make it in time. At least that’s the official word. Neither can like Hawai’i much so they are probably flying in at the last minute they can.

  • Lynnette

    Grace, aka Kono, was last seen boarding a slow boat to China with her beau, Adam Noshimuri. But showrunner Peter Lenkov has assured fans Kono’s storyline is far from over and Grace Park will return in Season 4.

    H50 has started each season with a sacred Blessing. Usually, whoever happens to be on set at the time of the blessing participates. If it’s not your day to film, you’re not required to be in attendance.

    Hopefully Five 0 will get 7 to 10 seasons. It already made it to season 4 so fast. Plus the brand is such a American icon in pop culture for decades. More success sistahs and braddahs on FIve 0. Keep up the great work!!!
