CBS announced today, somewhat surprisingly, that after 10 seasons Hawaii Five-0 is coming to an end. The sad news arrives with just a handful of episodes remaining in the rebooted drama's now-final season.

Ranking as the network's current fourth-longest-running drama, the cop series has been a fairly reliable Friday night staple, where it has been airing for the past six years. A re-imagining of the classic police procedural that aired from 1968 to 1980, Hawaii Five-0 follows Officer Steve McGarrett, who has returned to Hawaii to join up with Danny Williams as part of an elite branch of the Hawaii Police Force.

With such short notice, it is not clear if the series will end with a proper finale. The network has slated Friday, April 3 for the final episodes to air as part of a 2-hour closer. The 10-season run for this reboot of Hawaii Five-0 was impressive, but it ultimately failed to outlast the original, which ran for 12 seasons.
