Shemar Moore was a regular presence on the small screen for more than a decade thanks to his role as Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds, but he left the show behind (aside from a couple of guest appearances) back in Season 11. He's poised to make a big return to primetime with new series S.W.A.T. on CBS. The new show is a reboot of the 1975 S.W.A.T. TV series and the 2003 feature film of the same name. Moore stars as S.W.A.T. sergeant Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson, who is tasked with bridging the divide between the authorities as a S.W.A.T. leader and the Los Angeles community, to which he has close ties. Read on for a few reasons why fans of Shemar Moore will love what S.W.A.T. has to offer!

Shemar Moore As Leading Man

As a Criminal Minds regular from the very first season, fans got to see Shemar Moore in primetime for eleven years. Still, Criminal Minds is more of an ensemble series than a starring vehicle for any particular actor. Fans got to see what Moore could do as a major character and a series regular, but not a leading man. S.W.A.T. puts Shemar Moore in the spotlight as star of the series, and he carries the show quite well. Hondo is a different character than Derek Morgan, and he's the heart and soul of the entire S.W.A.T. team. If you've been wondering if Moore has what it takes to anchor a series, S.W.A.T. can give you your answer.
