Marsters for 'Hawaii Five-0' return?Monday, July 26 2010, 15:51 BST By Morgan Jeffery
Hawaii Five-0 showrunner Peter Lenkov has hinted that actor James Marsters could return to the show.
Marsters has already filmed a guest role in the CBS drama's pilot episode, playing a villain who lures Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) to Hawaii.
In an interview with IGN, Lenkov compared Marsters' character to Wo Fat (Khigh Dheigh), a recurring villain in the original version of the programme.
He explained: "If you're familiar with the original show, there was a character named Wo Fat, the arch nemesis of McGarrett. He played over the course of 12 seasons. Every now and then he'd pop up.
"I think if you look at our show as really a valentine to the original show, I think you'll see that James Marsters is going to come back, most likely."
Hawaii Five-0 premieres in September on CBS and on Bravo in the UK later this year.
