SWAT Season 5 Trailer for season 5

Still, we do not have a date, so we’re just guessing over here. There will certainly be a teaser to build up hype to let fans know what to anticipate from the upcoming season. So, keep your eyes open for that. Fret not, because as soon as the trailer is out, we’ll definitely let you know!
SWAT Season 5 Plot
In the previous seasons, the story highlighted quite a few problems between the Americans and Africans. As the situation escalated, sergeant Hando was demoted. We get to see a lot of situations where Hando faces discrimination based on his colour. This scared the fans very much and led them to believe that he would leave the force. At least, that was how the story was playing out.
However, in the new season, we will see how Hando deals with a lot of this. The writers say that there will be major character development for Hando, and he will play a major role in the upcoming seasons compared to the previous ones.
Furthermore, another major character Luca will get a lot more screen time, and there will be certain developments in his character that the writers think fans will like.
Just like we saw in the last season, the tension was high between the swats and the city’s people. The team could be seen working overtime to resolve the issues, but a certain event is likely to escalate the situation in the American-African revolts.
The next season will take off where season 4 ends and will likely show the team deal with the aftermath. The start of the season will most likely show the team investigating the police station bombing.
The next season is going to be a very critical part of the Swat’s lives. The season will be full of thrill and action-packed moments that you guys are going to love for sure.
