The series has been revamped with an all new cast. The brother that Stringfellow Hawke had been looking for during the original series has finally been found and is now the new pilot of the high tech helicopter. Dominic Santini's niece, Jo is also part of the team. Jason Lock is the new contact at the agency. And Mike Rivers is a hotshot pilot. In it after finding Hawke, they decide to continue the deal that Stringfellow Hawke had with the agency; they will keep Airwolf location a secret and they will go on missions for the agency.

The original CBS incarnation of Airwolf was canceled after only three seasons due to declining ratings and star Jan-Michael Vincent's growing problem with alcoholism. Universal Studios produced this "sequel" series on a shoestring budget in Canada, in order to provide enough episodes for both shows to be sold into syndication. See more »
Cheaply produced, uses old aerial footage from original series, bad acting, the story falls apart as they kill off Dom and wound String in the first episode, rescue St John with amazing ease and insult every fan of the original series. If the original cast had remained this show might even have survived the budget cuts, alas it died a slow and very painful death at the hand of a cable tv company.
