Tonight on CBS, fans will get a real treat when the hit series Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I. enjoys a crossover event.

For those who didn’t know that the two popular shows were set in the same world, the truth is that they both live within the world of the NCIS universe.

Hawaii Five-0 and the NCIS universe

Way back in Season 2 of Hawaii Five-0, there was a crossover with NCIS: Los Angeles, where NCIS: L.A. character Kensi Blye showed up to help Steve and Joe in the episode Ka Hakaka Maika’i.

In another Season 2 episode, both Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) and G Callen (Chris O’Donnell) showed up in an episode that started out on NCIS: L.A.’s Season 3 episode, Touch of Death. This was the Hawaii Five-0 episode called Pa Make Loa.

As for Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I., the two shows both take place in Hawaii, so it was a surprise that it took so long for them to crossover. They finally meet up tonight.
