Earlier this season on "Hawaii Five-0," Daniela Ruah appeared as her "NCIS: Los Angeles" character, Kensi Blye while assisting Five-0 on a case. And later this year, both series will come together for a much larger story.

TV Guide is reporting that "Hawaii Five-0" and "NCIS: Los Angeles" will stage a two night crossover event in May that will tale place on both series. The story is said to center around the outbreak of a deadly virus that may also be used as a weapon.

The first part of the story will begin on a Monday episode of "Hawaii Five-0," with Special Agents G. Callen (Chris O'Donnell) and Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) from "NCIS: LA" coming to the islands as the case begins. The concluding chapter will wrap up the following Tuesday night as Five-0's Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) and Danny Williams (Scott Caan) come to Los Angeles to help Callen and Hanna close the case. Of course, McGarrett and Danno wouldn't have any jurisdiction in LA, but just go with it.

"It was great fun earlier this season to see Danni soaking up the sun on 'Hawaii Five-0,' so when CBS asked if we were interested in doing a double episode crossover, we jumped at the idea," said "NCIS: LA" creator Shane Brennan. "What we've come up with is an enormously entertaining, high octane story that showcases the very best of both shows. It's going to be a fun ride."

"Hawaii Five-0" showrunner Peter Lenkov also implied that Hanna and McGarrett previously knew each other when he said "Besides the obvious excitement of teaming up with an incredible show, expanding 'Hawaii Five-0's' universe [and] teaming with 'NCIS: LA' on a case with huge stakes, we're interested in exploring the relationship between McGarrett and Hanna, both SEALs with a little history."
