Los Angeles S.W.A.T. lieutenant Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson is assigned to lead a highly skilled unit in the community where he grew up. Torn between loyalty to the streets where the cops are sometimes the enemy, and allegiance to his brothers in blue, he strategically straddles these two worlds. Hondo encourages his team to rely on communication and respect over force and aggression, but when a crisis erupts, these unflinching men and women are prepared to put their tactical training to the test.
Hondo and the SWAT team join forces with the FBI on a manhunt to find members of a militia group planning a domestic terror attack by weaponizing cyanide. Also, as Jessica's new police initiatives with Michael Plank (Peter Facinelli)

CBS today extended the first season of S.W.A.T., ordering seven additional episodes to bring its total up to 20 - good enough to be considered a full season. The move makes S.W.A.T. the network's second rookie drama of the 2017-2018 season to get a full season top-up.
Shemar Moore stars in the Los Angeles-based series, which follows a former Marine tasked with running a specialized tactical unit that acts as the city's last stop in law enforcement. Raised on the streets, he is torn between his loyalty to his roots and his allegiance to his new brothers in blue as he works to bridge the divide between his two worlds.
Premiering earlier this month as a late entry to the fall lineup, S.W.A.T. is off to a decent start through three episodes. While not a ratings standout, it has kept up with its competition in the 10:00pm time slot on Thursday nights.
