Emmy winner Christine Lahti is joining the cast of “Hawaii Five-0” for Season 3 in a key recurring role, the network announced Tuesday.

She’ll play Doris McGarrett — the presumed dead mother of Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin). The mystery surrounding McGarrett’s parents has been a driving force in the angsty copper’s storyline since the first season, so viewers should be excited for this casting news.

“The mysterious character of Doris McGarrett is a pivotal one to the mythology of our show,” executive producer Peter Lenkov said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have a seasoned and beloved actress such as Christine to portray her. She’s a wonderful addition to the H50 family and the fans will certainly enjoy what we have in store for her. Let’s just say that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
