CBS handed the freshman series a full season order today.

It's the third CBS series this season to get a full season, including SEAL Team and Young Sheldon. Comedy 9JKL today also received an additional three episodes on its freshman order.

S.W.A.T. was given one of the most difficult time periods on the schedule, and it's proven itself worthy of the challenge.

After three outings against very heavy competition, S.W.A.T. Season 1 has been averaging 10.4 million viewers and 1.9 in the coveted 18-49 demographic with DVR viewing.

Going up against ABC's How to Get Away with Murder and football on NBC, a new series holding steady in that time slot is impressive.

It's a co-production between CBS Television Studios and Sony Pictures Television and airs behind CBS biggest comedies.

Starring CBS hot commodity Shemar Moore as Hondo, the series is an updated version of both the 2003 film and the television series from the 1970s.

Hondo is newly promoted and finds himself torn between leading his team and his allegiance to the streets on which he was raised.

His unit includes Deacon (Jay Harrington), who always puts the team first, Chris (Lina Esco) the canine trainer, Street (Alex Russell), the cocky rookie, and Luca (Kenny Johnson ), an expert driver who gets them in and out of their high-risk situations.

Captain Jessica Cortez (Stephanie Sigman) values her job overseeing the unit and her on-again/off-again relationship with Hondo.

S.W.A.T. is a lot of fun with exciting chase scenes and touching bonding moments between the members of the unit.
