Amanda Setton to join 'Five-0's' M.E. office as a trainee

July 16th, 2014

When CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0” premieres Sept. 26, there will be a new trainee in the medical examiner’s office.

Amanda Setton, from “Crazy Ones,” will be introduced in the first episode of Season 5 as Dr. Mindy Shaw, who will assist Dr. Max Begman (Masi Oka) in the ME’s office.


TV Guide named her as one of the new regulars this season, who’ll pop up in crime investigation scenes periodically.

Viewers of “Gossip Girl” and “The Mindy Project” may also recall Setton.

Carol Burnett, earlier introduced as Steve McGarrett’s (Alex O’Loughlin) aunt Deb, will recur in Season 5 portraying Aunt Deb.

    I read earlier that Lenkov indicated this new character would be Steve's new love interest. If so, it seems a strange direction for Lenkov to take, as the Steve character wouldn't be expected to forget about Cath in Afghanistan. Just seems so un-Steve-like to me. I know some viewers liked the Cath character, but I always saw her as extra filler. I'm not too disappointed about the Cath character being written out in favor of someone more interesting, but can't we just have a new character without adding to all the love triangles that just haven't worked all that well in the past? Will Masi be written out now, I wonder?
