Cast list and preview images for the Hawaii Five-0 season premiere which is a remake of the classic first episode "Cocoon." Hawaii Five-0 Tonight: Remaking “Cocoon”

“Ka ʻōwiliʻōkaʻi” is the title of tonight’s Hawaii Five-0 season premiere and that translates to “Cocoon.” If the title is familiar to Hawaii Five-0 fans, there’s a reason for that: It was the name of the pilot episode of the original Hawaii Five-O series written by the late Leonard Freeman, and this season premiere is a remake of it.

Here’s how CBS describes the episode:

After Steve’s CIA agent friend is killed, McGarrett lets himself be captured by the group he thinks is responsible and endures a torturous sensory deprivation tank to find the killer. Also, Tani wrestles with whether or not she will tell McGarrett about the murder weapon she found at Adam’s house, on the ninth season premiere of HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Sept. 28 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
