Shemar Moore is back on CBS!
The 47-year-old star returns to the small screen in S.W.A.T., a one-hour drama inspired by the 1970s television series and 2003 film, as S.W.A.T. Sergeant Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, who is tasked to run a specialized tactical unit in Los Angeles.
“CBS has been so good to me,” the actor said. “I started out as a baby daddy on Young and the Restless and then I got my baby girls on Criminal Minds, and now -- I just got a really good group of people. This is a team and the guys who do S.W.A.T., they are a team.”
“This is a thrill ride,” Moore continued. “When you watch S.W.A.T., you’ve never seen this much action with a really cool, interesting, real story and a chemistry that a team has. Obviously, I’m biased. I’m not saying we’re gonna be the best, but we’re gonna be something fresh, something very brand new and something unique that you have not seen.”
“I never forget where I came from,” Moore said. “I tell all of my Criminal Minds friends, those elevator doors closed, and then a couple weeks ago, you saw them open up again. Derek Morgan is not dead, but right now, I’m really excited about Hondo -- but anything’s possible.”

S.W.A.T. premieres in November on CBS.
