When is 'S.W.A.T.' Season 7 premiering?

In the official announcement declaring that S.W.A.T. would get a seventh and final season, CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach and Sony Pictures Television Studios President Katherine Pope said (per TV Line), "We have listened to our viewers and their outpouring of passion for S.W.A.T. and we have reached an agreement to renew it for a final season of 13 episodes to air during the 2023-2024 broadcast year."

Star Shemar Moore reacted to the news of S.W.A.T's cancellation on Instagram, hinting that he thought CBS would "wake up" and change its mind.

"It's all about money, y’all. They said we’re canceled, but guess what I don’t think we’re done. CBS is either gonna wake up and realize they made a mistake." He added, "Sony is gonna do their math and realize that this is not the right move. I hope we can have a kumbaya and come back together and continue this show because it’s a good time for families across the world."
