S.W.A.T. season 7: Plot, release window, and more

S.W.A.T. is gearing up for its grand finale in season 7. With Hondo's recent proposal, fans are in for a treat.

Published onFebruary 12, 2024

S.W.A.T. is a fast-paced, action TV drama that follows a team of officers as they tackle high-risk situations in Los Angeles.

If you’ve loved Shemar Moore on Criminal Minds, you’re bound to love this. Moore takes a lead role in S.W.A.T. and does a lot more of what he did best on Criminal Minds — jump into action and save the day.

Here’s what we know about The S.W.A.T season 7’s possible release date and plot developments.

Will there be a season 7 of S.W.A.T.?

Absolutely! Despite a hiccup with CBS briefly canceling it, fans and Shemar Moore protested and they’re coming back.

Shemar took to Instagram to tell fans that they had done everything right and that it didn’t make sense for the sudden cancellation.

We agree. To spend six seasons and get canceled without getting a chance to wrap things up or say goodbye isn’t fair. So S.W.A.T. is coming back, albeit for a much shorter seventh season.

This one’s going to be the final bow and only 13 episodes long.

When is season 7 of S.W.A.T. coming out?

S.W.A.T. was all set to hit CBS in the fall of 2023, but the writer and actor strikes delayed that timeline. The seventh season will premiere on Friday, February 16, at 8:00 p.m. ET.

S.W.A.T season 7 cast

Here’s everyone you can expect to see this season:

  • Dominique Luca played by Kenny Johnson
  • Hondo Harrelson played by Shemar Moore
  • David Kay played by Jay Harrington
  • Nichelle Carmichael played by Rochelle Aytes
  • Jim Street played by Alex Russell
  • Victor Tan played by David Lim
  • Robert Hicks played by Patrick St. Esprit

What to expect from season 7 of S.W.A.T.?

A brief recap: Sergeant Daniel Hondo Harrelson, played by Shemar Moore, is an LA native and ex-Marine. He’s promoted to lead the S.W.A.T. unit to bridge the gap between the community and the police, especially after an accidental shooting of an unarmed black teenager.

Alright, so season 6 left us with Hondo popping the question to Nichelle. So, what to expect in season 7? We’re probably looking at wedding bells or at least some serious wedding planning.

And while the team managed to nab cartel leader Sancho Zamora last season, there’s bound to be new bad guys in town. Since it’s the last season, they’ll have to tie up loose ends. Is it too early to root for a spin-off?

Where to watch season 7 of S.W.A.T.?

It’s likely to be aired on CBS on Friday nights. You can stream it on your laptop or phone from the CBS website and app. You could also sign up for a Hulu + TV subscription or YouTube TV. Or you could wait for it to air the next day on Paramount Plus.


We don’t have verified intel on this, but Los Angeles is a safe bet.Where is S.W.A.T. filmed?

CBS cancelled S.W.A.T., even though it was doing pretty well with viewers because of a network dispute. But after Shemar Moore and fans shared their displeasure, CBS gave it another shot for a seventh season. However, they’ve made it clear this is the last hurrah, and it’s going to be a lot shorter, with only 13 episodes. We’re used to 22 episodes, but we’re not here to nitpick.
