Actor Scott Caan is recovering from knee surgery after suffering an injury in a stunt for revamped TV action series Hawaii Five-0.

The 33-year-old actor, who stars as Detective Danny ‘Danno’ Williams in the remake of the 1960s and ’70s show, was flown from the Oahu set to Los Angeles last week to undergo surgery on a torn ligament, reports the New York Post.

The operation was reportedly conducted as an outpatient procedure.

Network bosses are expecting Caan to return to the set this week, while writers have revamped the storyline to reflect his injury as they prepare for a planned premiere on 20 September.

A CBS spokesperson says, “Yes, his injury will be noted in the storyline.”
