‘S.W.A.T.’ is a U.S. action-drama television series based on a police procedural created by Aaron Rahsaan Thomas and Shawn Ryan.
Shemar Moore plays Sergeant Daniel Harrelson in the hit TV show, which has been nominated for multiple Primetime Emmy Awards.
Los Angeles-based S.W.A.T (Special Weapons And Tactics) follows a police sergeant who heads a highly trained task force tasked with finding and eliminating the most violent gangs.
The CBS website states:
“Torn between loyalty to where he was raised and allegiance to his brothers in blue, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson strives to bridge the divide between his two worlds and acclimate to his new duties as the legal guardian of a teenager.”
This show is praised for its ability to handle culturally sensitive topics, such as long-standing tensions between cops and African-Americans, and has been commended for tackling important themes of the times.
Meanwhile, S.W.A.T’s fans may be wondering if the TV show will return after its final episode of season 5, entitled “Farewell,” was aired.
