On Sept. 22, 2004, Oceanic Flight 815 crashed in the series premiere of Lost, changing the lives of not just those onboard, but also the millions of fans around the world.

CBS announced Thursday that Hawaii Five-0 will return for a sixth season, and Jorge Garcia will be back as well.

It's raining zombies, quite literally, by the end of the first hour of The Walking Dead's fourth harrowing season (Sunday, 9/8c, AMC). And when it rains, it pours blood. Just how fans like it.
But it's in the pauses between the gruesome action, those eerie and unsettling silences, when we're reminded there's no rest for the living in a treacherous world where swarming walkers are constantly pressing against the prison-shelter gates, insatiable and relentless. In these quieter moments, Dead reinforces its claim as TV's greatest horror drama by making us care so desperately about the characters' humanity.
Hawaii Five-0 is beefing up Chin Ho's (Daniel Dae Kim) presence in Season 4. One upcoming episode will flash back to his first meeting with his late wife, the circumstances surrounding the loss of his badge and his time under the mentorship of McGarrett's father, John. But first, the season kicks off with a pair of episodes that welcome two of Kim's former Lost costars.
Henry Ian Cusick (the time-jumping Desmond) guest stars in the Sept. 27 premiere as the villainous Ernesto, who holds the team hostage. "He's tied in to some baddies we introduced last season," says exec producer Peter Lenkov.
Some familiar faces from Lost are heading back to Hawaii.
Henry Ian Cusick will join previously-announced guest-star Jorge Garcia in a role on the upcoming season of Hawaii Five-0, according to a tweet from CBS. The roles reunite both men with their Lost cast mate Daniel Dae Kim. Fellow Lost alum Terry O'Quinn also recurs on the show.
