CBS' S.W.A.T. TV show is officially back in 2024 with Season 7, with a cast led by Shemar Moore and Jay Harrington.

After airing for six seasons, CBS officially canceled its S.W.A.T. series, but after backlash from star Shemar Moore, the decision was reversed. It was then announced that there would be one final installment to wrap up the story.

Season 7 (which will only contain 13 episodes as opposed to the normal 18-23 per season) is bringing back almost every main actor and their respective characters, and new episodes of the show will be released on CBS every Friday at 8 p.m. ET. New episodes will then stream on Paramount+ the following day.

Actor Shemar Moore returns for the seventh and final season as main protagonist Daniel Harrelson, aka Hondo.

Harrelson is the team leader of the 20-David S.W.A.T. team in the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and has been the outright main character of the series since the pilot episode.

The character was formerly a member of the United States Marine Corps prior to joining the LAPD. He now has the rank of Police Sergeant II.

Moore played a big role in getting S.W.A.T. uncanceled for one final season. The actor is also known for roles in Criminal Minds, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, and The Young and the Restless.

Jay Harrington - David Kay

Jay Harrington's David "Deacon" Kay is another veteran member of the LAPD S.W.A.T. team and the second-in-command behind Daniel Harrelson.

Many in the series thought Sergeant Kay deserved to be named team leader instead of Harrelson due to the former's tenure in the LAPD.

At one point in the show, Kay was offered a promotion to be the team leader of the 50-squad, but he ultimately turned it down due to guilt over taking money from a crime scene.

Harrington is best known for his roles in Better Off Ted, American Reunion, and Summerland.

David Lim - Victor Tan
