Well, fans hoping for Shemar Moore to come back to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Malcolm are going to have to wait a bit longer because CBS has just announced that his primetime series, S.W.A.T., has been renewed for an eighth season!

“S.W.A.T. IS BACK! BELIEVE IN MIRACLES! I am so proud of this show and the people and variables it has taken to make this show what it is and has become,” said Moore, series star and executive producer. “I am so grateful to the fans around the world who have supported, watched, enjoyed, and rooted for S.W.A.T.! It is entirely because of this support that S.W.A.T. will continue to shine! This is still a dream job for me … I love my S.W.A.T. crew, cast, and writers and producers – we have made an incredible, fun, exciting, provocative, and heartwarming show for the world to enjoy. Thank you to CBS and SONY for believing in S.W.A.T. and giving us this opportunity to shine!”

Based on the 1975 series, S.W.A.T. premiered back in 2017 and was originally canceled after six seasons, only to have CBS suddenly change its mind and renew the show for a shorter-13 episode seventh season. While many suspected it would be its last, that has once again proven not to be the case!

“Here at CBS, we always ‘stay liquid’ and love a good dramatic twist, especially when it leads to an eighth season of S.W.A.T.!,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “The show continues to resonate with viewers thanks to our talented cast led by Shemar Moore and our amazing writers and producers who keep the show relevant and action-packed. We’re very pleased to renew it again and incredibly grateful to our partners at SONY, CBS Studios, and Shemar for working so closely with us to bring it back for next season.”

This is great news for fans of S.W.A.T., though perhaps disappointing for some who hoped Moore might return to Y&R after his primetime series came to an end, as the actor admitted was a possibility in a recent interview. Still, hewas able to pop into Y&R for the occasional visit while working on S.W.A.T., so who knows if Malcolm might show up in Genoa City again anyway!
