S.W.A.T Season 5 Trailer
Unfortunately, because the fourth season has only recently ended, there is no trailer for season five yet. The new episodes are planned to premiere in October 2021, so hopefully, a teaser will be revealed before the end of the summer. In terms of filming updates, there’s nothing to indicate that it’s started yet. Hondo was on the verge of being demoted, so fans are eager to see what happens next. As soon as a trailer or teaser will release, we will update it for you.
