This rant from Shemar Moore

On May 6, Shemar Moore reacted to CBS’s decision in a video posted on his Instagram account. “CBS, when I was hired to be Hondo in SWAT, received a lot of criticism for its lack of diversity. If I post this video, and I think I do, I will get in a lot of trouble with CBS because I denounce them. Because they have been wonderful to me for 26 of my 29-year career. But being abruptly told that the series is canceledwhen you made us believe last week – and the week before, and the week before that – that we would have a semblance of season 7 to at least say goodbye… So that we are suddenly told: ‘It’s finish’“, blurted out the actor, before saying: ” In my opinion, it’s not acceptable. I will get through this, but I’m upset because I worked like crazy to prove that I could do it, and I proved that I could do it.”.

Upon arrival, the channel finally gave in by renewing the series one last time for a final season. History of closing in due form SWAT After seven seasons. It must be said that the detective series still brings together more than 6,000,000 of viewers in the United States. A figure far from shameful which gave Shemar Moore one more reason to remove the pins in his Insta video. The actor had said that the cancellation was “a f*cking mistake” from CBS programmers. SWAT therefore ends with its seventh and final season, currently broadcast on TF1. CBS still managed a small Pyrrhic victory by truncating the season by 9 episodes, reducing it from a usual total of 22 to only 13. Fans 1 – CBS 1. Tie, ball in the center but final curtain for SWAT.
