SWAT was renewed for a sixth season by CBS as part of the network’s fall 2022 schedule. The crime drama TV show is based on the same-named 1975 show and 2003 film. Shemar Moore plays former Marine and Los Angeles native Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, the SWAT sergeant on the show.
While previous seasons have taken place in California, the team is leaving the state for a fresh take on the series. You will not need a passport to witness the elite unit in Thailand. SWAT is a procedural show, meaning that each episode usually presents a case that is investigated and solved within one hour.
Viewers don’t have to watch every episode to understand what’s going on, but they risk missing important character development points if they don’t. So far, here’s all we know about Season 6.
When is the Swat Season 6 Release Date?
Your Friday night plans have been finalized. SWAT’s new season premiered on CBS on October 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Following the release of SWAT Season 6, CBS will air two other shows. Fire Country, a new series, premieres at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by Blue Bloods season 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Who is in the Swat Season 6 Cast?
Lina Esco, who played Christina “Chris” Alonso on SWAT for five seasons, announced her retirement just days after the season 5 finale. Aside from Esco, the rest of the critical characters are scheduled to return for season 6:
- Shemar Moore as Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson
- Alex Russell as Jim Street
- Kenny Johnson as Dominique Luca
- Jay Harrington as David “Deacon” Kay

What is the Swat Season 6 Plot?
The Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team is constantly being tasked with new missions, which can range from robberies and hijackings to terrorist attacks. In spite of the fact that the cast and crew will be dealing with high-stakes operations during this season, they will be leaving Los Angeles (at least for a portion of the season) and going to Thailand.
Due to the fact that it was Alonso’s last day on the squad, the conclusion of season 5 was a particularly emotional one. However, not all of the tears were happy ones. After discovering that his girlfriend Nichelle is expecting, Harrelson and Nichelle came to the conclusion that they wanted Luca to be the child’s godfather.
It is possible that Nichelle’s pregnancy will play a role in the sixth season of the show, but it is not yet known to what extent it will (or even if she will travel to Thailand at all).
