Hawaii Five-0 will be ending after ten seasons.

According to Deadline, the long-running action crime drama will end with a 2-hour finale on 3 April in the US.

Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement: "It's never easy to say goodbye to a hit franchise that carried on the legacy of the original with such distinction while establishing its own signature style.

"From episode one, Hawaii Five-0 has been a huge success for us. Thanks to the amazing talents of the producers, writers, cast and crew, it has played a key role for a decade on our schedule and helped establish our powerhouse Friday night. We cannot be prouder of its quality, longevity and are thankful for the passionate fan-devotion it inspired."

Based on the long-running series that lit up viewers' screens from 1968 to 1980, this revival had serious butt-kicking boots to fill. It centres on Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin), a Hawaii native who returns home to bury his father but sticks around to join an elite crime-fighting force with his partner Danny Williams (Scott Caan).

Alex said in a statement that the show had been part of every waking moment for ten years of his life.

"Everywhere I go on this planet, in every language, I am McGarrett to all these people. What we've done, what we've accomplished, it's extraordinary. I can't really put words to express my level of gratitude. I'm just glad to have been a part of this, a part of history and I'm going to miss it. And to the fans, I don't know how to thank you, guys. Thank you for following us the way you have. I'm going to miss you. Aloha."
