‘SWAT’ Fans Are Bummed About Show’s Streaming Options

by Joe Rutland

A number of fans of the CBS police drama SWAT, starring Shemar Moore, aren’t pleased about the streaming options available.

Some fans may not be able to catch it when it comes on at its scheduled time. Having a streaming option allows for those SWAT fans to actually see the episodes on their own schedules.

By the way, SWAT moves from Fridays to its new timeslot on Sundays at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, on Jan. 2.

What’s going on here? And what are they saying? Well, let’s check out something from the show’s Instagram account.

The show is available for streaming on Paramount+ and Hulu+. But the show’s first three seasons are on Hulu and that’s it.

‘SWAT’ Fans Want More Options Available For Streaming Episodes

Fans want more options, like right now.


Another fan writes, “When is the next episode”. Outsiders, we have given you that information already.

Yet this SWAT fan also wants another option for streaming episodes. “when is the new episodes coming to netflix??” A fan replies, “this right here ^^” meaning that this fan also wants new episodes on Netflix, too.

Then, another fan asks, “Why did they take this off hulu!!!”

Finally, this reaction: “Put season 4 on Netflix”.

OK, fans. Let’s see if SWAT or CBS can do anything about this situation.

Alex Russell Takes On New Role In Series

SWAT star Alex Russell is taking on a new role in the hit series. 

He still will play Jim Street, but he’s getting a seat in the director’s chair. Russell has directed short films in his past, but he’s going to direct a major TV show.

Safe House was the last new episode of SWAT to come out in 2021. Here’s the synopsis: “When an undocumented woman is violently abducted, the team forms an unlikely alliance to try and bring her home alive.”

SWAT is taking SEAL Team‘s old time slot on Sundays after NCIS: Los Angeles. Russell’s co-star, David Lim, didn’t want to become an actor.

Lim talks about this in an interview with Tell-Tale TV in 2017.

“I never wanted to be an actor,” Lim says. “I don’t come from a family of artists or entertainers.” He says that he “went to college and studied electrical engineering. And so when I graduated, I kind of realized I wasn’t cut out for it, or that it wasn’t really what I wanted to do.”

But the SWAT star turned to the “mortgage industry” and got a real estate license.

“I liked my job, I was making good money.”
