“S.W.A.T.” star Shemar Moore and his co-stars are back and ready for action in the upcoming season of the CBS original series.

Moore’s been updating fans via Instagram with some incredible behind-the-scenes looks at filming and production. For such an intense, action-packed show, the “S.W.A.T.” cast and crew definitely know how to keep it lighthearted on set.

But Moore’s latest pic is all business. We see him posing with co-stars David Lim and Alex Russell in front of a S.W.A.T. helicopter, guns at the ready. Their sunglasses-covered faces are serious and intense. But we know it’s all for show.

“Light work on Friday … SEASON FIVE of @swatcbs comin’ at ya Oct 1st,” the S.W.A.T star captioned the post.

Fans can’t wait to see Moore and the others on their screens again this fall. It’s been a long summer, but luckily the “S.W.A.T.” cast has been satisfying our cravings with exclusive behind-the-scenes content.

For example, fans should try and check out Moore’s Instagram Stories pretty often. Yesterday, he posted tons of videos with the cast and crew at the same site as the photo he posted to his regular page.

We see the “S.W.A.T.” cast strapping into the helicopter, with one cast member shouting, “Roll S.W.A.T., baby!” Moore also posted a slow-mo video of the helicopter kicking up dust and debris. We see a video of the sun beating down on the cast and crew. Moore captioned it, “Heli days on #SWAT” with a ton of fire emojis.

And we see another awesome photo of Moore, Lim, and Russell. The three stand in what looks like an old-fashioned Western town, the helicopter hovering over a church in the background. Moore once again captions it with key “S.W.A.T.” info: “October 1st on CBS.”

‘S.W.A.T.’ Star Shemar Moore Talks ‘Real World Problems’ Addressed on Show

“S.W.A.T.” star Shemar Moore isn’t afraid to talk about how real-world issues bleed into the show. Back in 2018, the actor spoke with Stack about how the show can be both “a good time” and contain a “poignant message.”

“A TV show can’t fix the problems that are going on in the United States and around the world, but it can create a different mindset if people really want a chance at faith, hope, and a belief of a better, safer, united place, all the while having a good time,” Moore explained about “S.W.A.T.”

“What is very important to me, and that’s going to continue to evolve, is the humanity, the emotion in the story, and the character development,” the “S.W.A.T.” star continued. “Even though [the characters] come off as super cops, once you really get to understand them and see underneath the armor and the human side of us, we all have kryptonite. It is a fun show, but there is a human story and a human message that I hope people will gravitate to and will resonate with people.”
