CBS Stuns Fans With Un-Cancelling S.W.A.T. Season
Fans of S.W.A.T. cannot contain their enthusiasm after CBS changed its decision to cancel Season 7, which will also be the final season of the show. After the cancellation release, according to insiders, discussions between the broadcasting firm and co-producer Sony Pictures Television proceeded over the weekend.
In a joint statement, Katherine Pope, president of Sony Pictures Television Studios, and Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment, said: “We have listened to our viewers and their outpouring of passion for ‘S.W.A.T.’and we have reached an agreement to renew it for a final season of 13 episodes to air during the 2023-2024 broadcast year.”
The decision-makers went on to say that “S.W.A.T. has garnered a devoted following over the course of its six seasons on CBS.” We are happy that we were able to bring it back and provide the plots and characters of the programme with the satisfying resolution that viewers deserved.
Reisenbach and Pope concluded by expressing their gratitude for the abilities and efforts of the cast, producers, writers, and crew, all of whom helped make the series successful. The statement added, “We look forward to its return next season.”
Shemar Moore’s Disappointment Has A Part To Play
Despite the fact that the show has continued to deliver strong ratings for CBS, Season 7’s cancellation was a financial choice. Shemar Moore, the series’ star who has continued to portray Sergeant II Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson in the long-running series from 2017 to the present, is now working as an executive producer on the last season after it was renewed.
Shemar Moore, the show’s star, expressed his disappointment with the cancellation of the programme on Instagram along with fans, claiming that it makes no sense to end the programme suddenly. The actor also criticised TV diversity in his Instagram video for dumping the lone African American male lead on broadcast television.
He said, “It makes no sense” when referring to the cancellation before adding, “We’ve done nothing wrong. Everything that was asked of us was done. Now that he is making a comeback and acting as an executive producer, the show and its viewers can both benefit.
