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.
The team searches for a rogue member of an extremist group planning to attack the memorial service of a famous musician who was outspoken about police brutality; tension mounts when Leroy is released from prison early.
CBS announced today that S.W.A.T. has been picked up for a fourth season. The good news comes two weeks ahead of the action drama's finale, which will cap Season 3 slightly ahead of schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic shutdown.
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.
Look for Season 4 to premiere as part of CBS' 2020-2021 lineup.
