CBS's 'Hawaii Five-0' Reveals Who the New Governor Will Be TV Guide

After Jean Smart was killed off as the governor in the season one finale of CBS's "Hawaii Five-0," a new actor was needed to take over running the state and now we know who it will be, reports TV Guide.

Richard T. Jones will play the state's lieutenant governor who steps up to the governor’s job and assumes control of the state. Jones is a familiar television face, having been a regular on CBS's "Judging Amy" and NBC's Fox's  "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles."

According to the publication, Jones' governor will be more conservative than his predecessor, and he's determined "to clean up the mess of the previous administration."
