Peter M. Lenkov, the showrunner of Hawaii Five-O, is opening up about Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park‘s decision to leave the hit series.
Lenkov says that “CBS was extremely generous and proactive in their renegotiation talks. So much so, the actors were getting unprecedented raises, but in the end they chose to move on.”
Peter continued by defending the diversity of the show, listing many of the actors who represented diverse backgrounds throughout the years.
“After being away from her family for seven years, I understood Grace‘s decision to leave. There was an opportunity for her to return for a handful of episodes, but for several reasons that didn’t work out,” Peter added.
Make sure to read what CBS said in a statement about the “significant raises” the actors were offered.
