"Hawaii Five-0" Season 8 is confirmed, as CBS has already renewed the series before it aired its Season 7 finale. While many fans are rejoicing over this fact, it seems like the upcoming season will see the last of Alex O'Loughlin as Steve McGarrett. What will his exit mean for the series?

Spoilers ahead! Continue reading if you want to learn more about the details of this story.

Alex O'Loughlin has already confirmed his exit from "Hawaii Five-0" Season 8. In an interview with Collider, the actor explained that he has already "decided" to leave the CBS drama after the eighth season while it still has "some magic left in it."

According to O'Loughlin, it can be a tough challenge trying to keep the same magic and he is starting to get worried that he will not be able to do the same after "Hawaii Five-0" Season 8. He shared that he has been getting a lot of back injuries while performing some stunts for H50, so he had to undergo stem cell treatments.

"Film and TV is not as important as my life," he explained. "I don't think I can physically do any more than eight years."

In case O'Loughlin proceeds with his decision to leave "Hawaii Five-0" Season 8, TVLine has cited a possible storyline for his character, Steve McGarrett's exit. As seen on H50 Season 7 finale, Steve went to a doctor because he had been getting some spells after getting radiation poisoning.

He told Danny that he does not need to worry, but warned him that there is a definite chance that he will experience several consequences after years. This led to speculations that this may be the exit plan for O'Loughlin on "Hawaii Five-0" Season 8.
