Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the television series and the feature film of the same name, S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as a locally born and raised S.W.A.T. sergeant newly tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Torn between loyalty to where he was raised and allegiance to his brothers in blue, former Marine Daniel 'Hondo' Harrelson has everything it takes to be an excellent leader and bridge the divide between his two worlds. Hondo's elite unit includes David 'Deacon' Kay, an experienced S.W.A.T. officer who always puts the team first, despite feeling overlooked for the lead job; Jim Street, a cocky but promising new member of the group; Christina 'Chris' Alonso, a skilled officer and the team's canine trainer; and Dominique Luca, an expert driver who gets them in and out of high risk situations. Overseeing the unit is Jessica Cortez, the captain of L.A. Metro who values her job above all else, including her off-the-books relations with Hondo. Hondo's team enjoys an intense rivalry with another L.A.-based unit led by Mumford, an aggressive leader who likes to do things his way. With Hondo leading the charge, these dedicated men and women bravely put themselves at risk to protect their community and save lives.

The sophomore season of S.W.A.T. premiered on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 10:05pm ET/PT on CBS. In the season opener, "Shaky Town," the SWAT team engages in a standoff with human traffickers holding child hostages when a major earthquake hits Los Angeles during their operation and compromises the takedown. Also, while Hondo forms an unexpected personal connection with Deputy District Attorney Nia Wells (guest star Nikiva Dionne), Jim Street has trouble adjusting to his new life as a patrol officer. On Thursday, January 3, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT, CBS debuted "School," the mid-season premiere of SWAT. The SWAT team faces difficult reminders of a past school shooting when they receive a warning that a copycat plans to re-enact the crime. As the team races to stop the new threat, they flash back to the day of the tense first mission. Cast members Shemar Moore, Alex Russell, Jay Harrington and Lina Esco appear in a public service announcement at the end of the episode.

Season 3 of S.W.A.T. premiered on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT on CBS, as Amy Farrington joins the cast as Lieutenant Piper Lynch, a Senior Officer in the LAPD's Hollywood Division. In the season opener, "Fire in the Sky," the SWAT team works with Lieutenant Piper Lynch, a senior LAPD Hollywood Division officer, when the mayor assigns her to oversee city departments joining forces to stop a serial bomber using drones as detonation devices. Also, just as Hondo settles into legal guardianship of his teen charge, Darryl, his home life becomes more complicated when his estranged father unexpectedly moves in.

Street is caught between his duty to SWAT and his commitment to his foster brother, Nate (recurring guest star Cory Hardrict), when Nate is ensnared in a criminal enterprise that could ruin them both. Also, the SWAT team goes after a ruthless crew that uses deadly force while stealing from card casinos, and Buck (recurring guest star Louis Ferreira) approaches Deacon to partner on a private security opportunity.
