NCIS Hawaii’s Alex Tarrant Already Has New Project Lined Up After Last-Minute CBS Axe


NCIS Hawaii may have only just finished but the star behind Kai Holman hasn’t let the grass grow.

NCIS Hawaii’s Alex Tarrant is already back to work on something very different, just a week after the spin-off reached its unexpected end.

Since the CBS island state-set series made its debut in 2021, fans had fallen in love with the scenery, intriguing plot twists and the main relationship with Kate Whistler (played by Tori Anderson) and Lucy Tara (Yasmine Al-Bustami).

Despite all of the positive feedback, due to financial reasons, CBS decided to cancel NCIS Hawaii following season three, so a proper final farewell to the show wasn’t given.

This left the cast and fans alike feeling frustrated and disappointed with thousands signing a petition for the network to change its mind.

As of yet, no U-turn has been made on its cancelled status and some of its stars are now delving into work elsewhere.

Agent Kai Holman (Alex Tarrant) was the newest member of the team after he returned home to care for his father.

It didn’t take long for him to fit in with the rest of the group and quickly became a much-needed agent and a good friend to his colleagues.

With NCIS Hawaii no more, actor Tarrant has now taken on a very different project away from his time as Agent Holman.

According to his IMDb page, Tarrant is going to star in the upcoming mystery series A Remarkable Place to Die which is currently in production.

Little is known about his role so far, apart from that his character is called Ihaka but the show’s premise is a gripping one.


The synopsis for A Remarkable Place to Die reads: “Detective Anais Mallory returns to hometown Queenstown, New Zealand, and faces startling homicides.

“She cracks cases while confronting personal ghosts from her past.”

Detective Mallory is to be played by actress Chelsie Preston Crayford who has been in The Luminaries, The Panthers and, most recently, the horror film M3GAN.

Joining them in the cast are H20: Just Add Water’s Indiana Evans, Prosper’s Rebecca Gibney and Riverdale’s Nathalie Boltt.

Unlike some of his co-stars, Tarrant has stayed relatively quiet when it comes to expressing his feelings on NCIS Hawaii’s sudden ending.

Last week, he shared a behind-the-scenes photo of himself on the show’s set with the simple caption: “That’s a wrap”.

Others, including Jane Tennant star Vanessa Lachey, have been far more open on the matter.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: “We appreciate what was given to us for our use, we nurture it and then we leave it better for the next dreamer.

“I’m wishing for my crew and my cast that we all remember the Beauty of what we had…we will spread this Aloha in every direction we go. I wish we had more time, I’m sorry we don’t.

“I wish we had a proper good-bye, I’m sorry we didn’t. I know we ALL are connected deeper than any TV show.”
