“S.W.A.T.” star Shemar Moore released his show’s Season 5 premiere date on Instagram with a sweet-looking poster.

“Aaayyeee!!! @swatcbs Season 5 premiere goes down FRIDAY OCT 1st #SQUAD UP,” Moore wrote.

At the time of writing, the post has over 48,000 likes.

A day earlier, Moore posted a fantastic Instagram shot of himself leaning on a sweet Ferrari ride in front of an on-set Los Angeles S.W.A.T. tractor-trailer. He tagged co-star and show father Obba Babatunde in the picture. The model, who got his start in soap opera work with “The Young and The Restless” also wore his favorite cowboy hat.

The 51-year-old Moore has played in the lead role of Hondo since 2017. CinemaBlend.com reported that it would open this season with a special two-part premiere with some scenes shot in Mexico.

Cornhole Games Going Strong At Shemar Moore’s House

People.com reported on Moore’s recent Cornhole activities lately. 

In an Instagram video, Moore showed off some of the fun at his seven-bedroom, 9-bathroom Los Angeles mansion.

Moore and friends have the show’s co-stars and crew members playing Cornhole so much they have a serious league of sorts. Co-star David Lim and technical advisor Odie Gallop appeared in the video with top American Cornhole League stars Trey Burchfield and Noah Wooten. 

The video also showed off Moore’s putting green and pool. The mansion also has a movie theater.

The “S.W.A.T.” group has its own Instagram page with a bio saying, “Chasing bad guys by day, slinging bean bags by night.” 

In November, Moore has an affinity for the game, telling TV show host Kelly Clarkson that the game is “serious business at (his) house” with weekly games. 

Moore went on to say how big of a business the game was – even mentioning that sports network ESPN was showing its games.

Moore talked about buying Cornhole boxes, setting them up 27 feet from each other, and his overall mansion set up in the People article.

His “S.W.A.T.” co-star Lim had even made special Casa Del Sham rings on them as a lovely tribute to Moore. The rings come into play as those who compete seriously can win and take the ring during tournaments.

‘S.W.A.T.’ Dealing with Issues

Deadline.com reported that the show has had some issues with COVID-19.

The Los Angeles County Health Department reported an outbreak at Santa Clarita Studios North of Los Angeles in late July. 

Deadline confirmed with sources that there were five cases on the “S.W.A.T” show, but production resumed. People.com reported that Moore dealt with the virus this past year.

Other shows suffered from outbreaks around the same time, with some having to stop. Notably, producers had to hit the pause button on HBO’s “Westworld” and F.X.’s “American Horror Story.”

According to IMDB.com, Moore will have a role in the 2022 “Sonic The Hedgehog 2” sequel.
