CBS made a disappointing decision to cancel SWAT after six seasons. That decision was reversed after just three days.
Sometimes bad decisions can be reversed. That’s what has happened with the decision to cancel SWAT. The show’s cancellation decision has been reversed, so we will get to see a seventh season after all.
CBS has confirmed that the fans had everything to do with this. Shemar Moore also thanked the fans. He will be upped to executive producer for the season.
Of course, with the good news does come a bit of bad.
SWAT Season 7 is going to be the last
CBS has decided that while there will be a Season 7, there definitely won’t be a Season 8. The renewal comes with news that it will be the final season, giving the audiences what they deserve: closure.
We will get 13 episodes to the final season. This should be enough time to wrap things up.
Of course, now there are questions about when we’ll get it. All we know for now is that it will arrive in the 2023-2024 season. CBS won’t be able to confirm anything just yet because of the WGA writers strike. While the strike is on, no work on the broadcast (and other) shows will happen. We’ll see more updates on when to expect shows back once the strike has ended.
