The casting news comes after stars Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park departed the series, as both actors were not able to come to terms on new deals to return for another season.
Rath will play Tani Rey, who McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) recruits after finding her working as a lifeguard at a hotel pool after she was kicked out of the Police Academy, despite being a first-rate candidate. Rath is best known for starring on “Being Human,” and also has had prominent roles on Fox’s “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life,” “New Girl” and ABC’s “Secrets and Lies.” She is repped by Paul Kohner Agency.
In a statement posted on Twitter, Lenkov said, “Both actors chose not to extend their contracts. 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. No one wanted to see them go–they are irreplaceable.”
“In our 168 episodes, Hawaii Five-0 has and will continue to showcase one of the most diverse casts on TV: Chi McBride, Jorge Garcia, Mark Dacascos, Ian Anthony Dale, Will Yun Lee, Masai Oka, Dennis Chun, Taylor Wily, Shawn Garnett, Kimee Balmilero, Kekoa Kekumano, Shawn Anthony Thomsen, as well as Daniel and Grace … all of these great talents regulars or recurring. I’m proud of that roster and of our show,” Lenkov concluded. You can read the full statement below.

Yes. I definitely would say he’s a nemesis. There’s some big surprises coming up with regards to him.

In an unpredictable competition like The Amazing Race, it’s tricky to craft a final leg that provides a satisfying finish. The result often comes down to choosing the right taxi, which isn’t exciting for anyone but the winners. This season has included one of the most dominant teams in the show’s history. Dave and Rachel’s win this week isn’t surprising, but this is no cakewalk. The final leg includes difficult tasks that require both strength and skill. They even face a stunning rejection from Phil at the finish, but that only delays the victory. A directional mistake gives Art and Jj a great chance, which creates surprising tension. Despite their bickering, Dave and Rachel keep it together and roll through the final challenges for the win.
