- S.W.A.T. has been renewed for season 3.
- The CBS drama will now air on Wednesday nights.
- Former Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore recently gave viewers some hints about the upcoming season on Instagram.
Although it aired months ago, the season 2 finale of S.W.A.T. probably still has viewers feeling on edge. The last episode of the crime drama showed the Los Angeles S.W.A.T. team go head-to-head with a group of twisted crime masters.
After Hondo, Deacon, Tan, and the rest of the squad attempted to save the lives of L.A.’s top politicians in a chaotic series of events, the finale actually ended on a calm note. Still, it left fans with a lot of questions (like, where are Hondo and Daryll going?!). Luckily, the CBS series has been renewed for a third season—and we will finally get answers this fall.
Here’s everything you need to know about season 3 of S.W.A.T.
When does ‘S.W.A.T.’ come back to television?
S.W.A.T. season 3 officially secured the premiere date of October 2, which is a different day than viewers are used to. The series previously aired on Thursday nights, but will take Criminal Minds‘ usual spot on Wednesdays come fall.
Who will join the ‘S.W.A.T.’ cast?
No new additions to the S.W.A.T. cast have been announced for season 3, but it appears that all of show’s fan-favorites will be coming back. Shemar Moore, who plays Hondo on the show, recently shared a photo of himself and his fellow cast members filming for an upcoming episode.
The star-studded shot included Chris (Lina Esco), Tan (David Lim), Luca (Kenny Johnson), Deacon (Jay Harrington), and Street (Alex Russell)—and they all look ready for action!
Are there any spoilers?
We don’t know exactly what’s next for S.W.A.T.‘s fictional Los Angeles heroes, but we do know the title of the first episode of season 3. In another revealing Instagram post, Shemar shared a video of himself holding his script for the show as he practiced getting into character.
“Three-oh-one. ‘Fire in the Sky.’ Season 3, episode one. It’s going down,” he said. “Now I gotta get my Hondo voice back together. . . Because S.W.A.T. is coming.”
If you need us, we’ll be spending the next three months trying to figure out what “Fire in the Sky” could mean!
