The season premiere of Hawaii Five-O season 10 saw Jorge Garcia depart the series and that marked the end of the road for Jerry Ortega. However, Katrina Law has joined the series as new cast member Quinn Liu.
Quinn Liu on Hawaii Five-O
The synopsis for Ua ‘eha ka ‘ili i ka maka o ka ihe revealed to fans that a new ally was coming to Hawaii Five-O. That ended up being Quinn Liu, who helped McGarrett and his team find an assassin who targeted mob bosses.
Quinn Liu was a staff sergeant with the Army CID. The good news is she isn’t coming in as a love interest but as a legit team member.
“She was former CID, got bumped down to military police, so she’s definitely an investigator. A lot of people that came to Five-0 didn’t come from a traditional law enforcement background. She does,” showrunner Peter Lenkov told Parade.com.
He went on to say that Quinn Liu will fit in perfectly with the Hawaii Five-O team. He pointed out that McGarrett has mastered taking “broken toys” and turning them into a family.
