If “S.W.A.T.” viewers can recall last season, then you’ll remember, Outsiders, that “Hondo” lost his lead role and headed down to Mexico.

Some of you might be wondering if any pictures are available from the CBS police drama’s new season.

That answer is yes and just take a look below. Shemar Moore plays Sgt. Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson and these new pics offer a look into what his situation appears to be.

“S.W.A.T.” kicks off a new season on Friday night at 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central.

Moore shared these photos from his own Instagram account on Thursday. From the looks of it, “Hondo” is about to go through some things.

A Mexican jail or prison cell? Have mercy. OK, check out the photos from a new “S.W.A.T.” episode coming up, Outsiders.

You read that caption right. “Hondo” and his friends will return to CBS for their fifth season.

Moore is definitely giving fans a little scoop by predicting his character might find trouble near him.

‘S.W.A.T.’ Will Return And Have Plenty To Explain About ‘Hondo’ And His Move

Other cast members on “S.W.A.T.” include Alex Russell, Lina Esco, Kenny Johnson, Jay Harrington, and David Lim.

What has “Hondo” gotten himself into down South of the border? Well, we’ll have to tune in on Friday night and see. “S.W.A.T.” promises to be an action-packed show.

It will find our main man trying to put his life together after being outcast for talking about racism in the Los Angeles Police Department.

Why did “Hondo” leave the City of Angels? TV Insider straight up asked “S.W.A.T.” executive producer Shawn Ryan to explain.

“He feels bruised and battered despite having done the right thing,” Ryan said. “A lot of his swagger is gone. He’s soul searching about what to do with his life.”

Actor Said Getting Role On Police Drama Was ‘A Moment Of Pride For Me’

Last year, Moore, in an interview with CBS, said filming “S.W.A.T.” was “a little strange.” He added that the show’s cast was moving forward through those testy times.

Moore also said the show was the first one returning to network television. He’s also expressed pride that “S.W.A.T.” became the first hour-long drama back as well.

In talking a little more about being on the CBS police drama, Moore said all of the success happened at the right time and place.

“When I got ‘S.W.A.T.,’ it was a moment of pride for me,” he said. “I’ve worked hard, and I defied the odds.”

Moore also was on the CBS show “Criminal Minds” and built up a following there, too. Tune in Friday night for the season opener.
