SWAT Un-Canceled, Renewed for Season 8 by CBS

SWAT has defied death once again. The Friday night procedural, which was canceled last May after six seasons before CBS granted it a reprieve and handed it a seventh, will no longer end with the seventh season, as had previously been announced. CBS has ordered an eighth season of the series, following negotiations with Sony that only began earlier this week. The series was recently added to Netflix, where it has performed well. It has also been a strong performer on CBS, averaging 0.39 in the key 18-49 demo and beating several other drama series on CBS, including FBI: International, So Help Me Todd, and NCIS: Hawai'i. Shemar Moore leads the cast of the series, which also features Jay Harrington, David Lim, and Patrick St. Esprit in starring roles. The eighth season is said to be for a full, twenty-two episode season.
