Season Two Production Begins on the #1 New Drama “NCIS: Hawai’i” with a Traditional Hawaiian Blessing in Oahu
NCIS: HAWAI’I kicked off its second season production on the sound stages in Oahu with a traditional Hawaiian blessing in honor of its host Hawaiian culture, which was held in line with the series’ overall filming COVID-19 safety protocols.
Series stars Vanessa Lachey, Alex Tarrant, Noah Mills, Jason Antoon, Yasmine Al-Bustami and Tori Anderson participated alongside the NCIS: HAWAI’I producers and crew. Kahu (officiant) Kordell Kekoa officiated the ceremony, which included traditional royal maile leis, Oli Aloha (welcoming chant) and Pule Ho’oku’u (closing prayer). In honor of the show’s second season, the ceremony centered around “hana hou,” which translates to “work new” and “do it again!”
