S.W.A.T. Season 7 Finale Plot Details Spell Trouble For Shemar Moore's Hondo

l intro 1713921651

Further details are scant for the not-quite-series finale of “S.W.A.T.” Kenny Johnson, who played Luca on the show until the character left 20-Squad for an injury-induced retirement during Season 7, revealed to TVLine that the show’s Season 8 renewal makes the Season 7 finale even better … because it’s very open-ended and doesn’t provide a conclusive ending for 20-Squad or anyone else in the show.

Shemar Moore, meanwhile, has declared that very little of the Season 7 finale has been changed to accommodate the upcoming production of Season 8. He told TV Insider that the finale does not need to be rewritten to accommodate the start of the next season. “This is how determined and in sync the crew, but especially the writers [are],” he said. “What’s crazy is we’ve had to change nothing—absolutely nothing. […] When you get up to the finale, you’ll see when you watch it, you’ll go, oh, this was their way of saying goodbye. But it was also our way of saying we could still keep going. We said, this will either be our goodbye or this will be our new beginning.”

Viewers will have to watch the “S.W.A.T.” Season 7 finale online or via CBS on May 17 to find out who lives, who dies, what changes — and how much hot water Hondo ends up in.
