The two modern reboots both come from the same producer, Peter M. Lenkov, so it's somewhat surprising that the previous crossover attempts have been pretty limited thus far.
In the past, Magnum PI has featured Hawaii Five-0's medical examiner Noelani Cunha (Kimee Balmilero) and the team's associate Kamekona Tupuola (Taylor Wily) for some guest appearances.
While producer Peter M. Lenkov wouldn't confirm any storyline details just yet, he did say that the crossover would be airing "sooner rather than later".
"We have narrowed down a story," he added.
Unfortunately, fellow '80s remake MacGyver is going to have to sit out of this crossover event because CBS is saving its return for the midseason.
In addition to the two-part crossover, Kamekona will be returning to Magnum PI – and this time he'll be bringing along the HPD's elder statesman Sgt. Duke Lukela (Dennis Chun).
Also making additional crossover appearances on Magnum next season will be Hawaii Five-0's Flippa Tupuola (Shawn Mokuahi Garnett) and William Forsy reprising his guest role as crafty private investigator Harry Brown.
Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I. are both set to return to CBS in the US on Friday, September 27. MacGyver is currently slated to be returning next year.
