With fall TV back, we’re checking in on all our favorite shows. SWAT is one of the top shows on CBS, but will it return tonight, Sept. 23?
The time has come for summer to end and TV to come back to our screens. Things certainly kicked off this week with the return of NCIS, NCIS: Hawaii, and the FBI shows. Will CBS continue that tonight with the return of its Friday night lineup?
We know SWAT is moving back to Fridays, and we couldn’t be happier. It was certainly a strong timeslot for the series, and we’re glad to see that the move to Sunday didn’t disrupt too much for the rest of Season 5. The bad news is Friday nights aren’t getting back to normal just yet.
SWAT Season 6 will not premiere tonight. There’s still a bit of a wait for this series.
When will SWAT Season 6 premiere on CBS?
The wait isn’t too long. At least we don’t need to wait for the midseason. We’re just waiting until October.
SWAT Season 6 will premiere on Friday, Oct. 7. It’s not entirely clear why we have to wait so long for Friday dramas to return. The whole Friday night lineup begins on the same night. It’s likely linked to Fire Country, which gets its series premiere between the two longer-running procedurals. Max Thieriot is also in SEAL Team, which will have affected when filming of Fire Country could start.
Episodes of our favorite cop drama will be back at 8 p.m. ET/PT, kicking off Friday nights. There is no sign of it moving to Sundays. CBS attempted to kick Fridays off with an unscripted show and it just didn’t work. We’re glad to see a night of dramas.
SWAT Season 6 premieres on Friday, Oct. 7 at 8/7c on CBS. Catch up the following day on Paramount+.
