However, many others couldn't help but spot similarities with CBS's reboot of Hawaii Five-0, which recently drew to a close after ten seasons. "Is that some wannabe Kamekona Shrimp Truck?" someone wrote, referring to the tasty hotspot owned by fan favourite Hawai'i Five-0 character Kamekona Tupuola.

The new spinoff series will premiere on Monday 20 September

Another person noted the coincidence that Vanessa herself once "played a criminal on H-50", while a third said they were reserving judgment until NCIS: Hawai'i actually begins airing. They tweeted: "This actually looks pretty darn good, I hope that many wont compare it to H50 but some will though but to me its got a way different feeling from that one."

Like the other series in the long-running NCIS franchise, NCIS: Hawai'i will follow a talented and tireless team of Naval Criminal Investigative Services agents dedicated to solving criminal cases involving the Marines and the Navy.

What sets the new series apart is that it will take place in a new base in America's 50th state, the island of Hawai'i. The official synopsis for the show reads: "The world's most successful television series continues on the seductive shores of the Aloha State as the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor and her team balance duty to family and country, investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security and the mysteries of the island itself."

Joining Vanessa in the cast are Yasmine Al-Bustami, Jason Antoon, Noah Mills, Tori Anderson, Kian Talan, Alex Tarrant and Enver Gjokaj.
