IMPORTANT UPDATE ON THE S.W.A.T. FRONT
Beginning Sunday January 2nd, S.W.A.T will move to Sunday nights! Fans were informed early on with new season premiere date announcements, that Friday nights for this show was only temporary. So, we will shift our sights to Sunday nights as the team of crime fighters continue to do what they do best to protect the city of Los Angeles.
Season five opened with Hondo, played by Shemar Moore in Mexico after being demoted for being a whistleblower and shining a light on the misdeeds within the LAPD. With his future uncertain, Hondo finds himself in the middle of more trouble in Mexico as he attempts to help a mother and her daughter fight off a greedy businessman and his sadistic son.
With business in Mexico settled, Hondo heads back to LA with his future uncertain and his team in shambles. Chris and Luca are in Europe, Street is recovering from surgery, Tan is on an extended honeymoon and Deacon is working at the academy.
With Hondo’s return, the team is reassembled under the leadership of Sgt. Alex Sanchez, an ambitious former S.W.A.T. member looking to do whatever it takes to climb up the ranks with a campaign of self-promotion. Luca, has a past with Sanchez and knows his arrival at S.W.A.T. has a hidden agenda.
Determined to uncover Sanchez’s real reason for returning to S.W.A.T. Luca uncovers a plot to force Hondo out of S.W.A.T. for good. The team comes together to save Hondo and make things right again.
Whew…with five episodes in, Season 5 is off to a fast, heart-stopping pace and judging by what I’ve seen so far it’s showing no signs of slowing down!
