The Young and the Restless alum Shemar Moore has a message for fans after his show S.W.A.T. was uncanceled by CBS and given a final season.
It’s been a roller coaster ride of a few days for Shemar and the rest of the S.W.A.T. team.
Last Friday, CBS shockingly canceled the show with no finale or official send-off despite its stellar Friday night ratings.
The outrage among fans and cast members, especially Shemar, who put CBS on blast, earned the show a new lease on life.
Instead of just canceling S.W.A.T., CBS has renewed the show for a seventh and final season.
After the good news broke, Shemar and his costar David Lim expressed their gratitude to fans.

Later Shemar and David appeared in a video to share to thank the fans. After recapping the last few days of being canceled, then the outrage and being uncanceled, Shemar got to the real point of his Instagram video about why the show was renewed.
“You know why? Because of y’all. To the fans, because you showed us love. You made noise, and we so respect it, and we so appreciate it. All we wanna do is do it right. If we’re gonna go out, we’re gonna go out the right way. And we’re gonna go out for you. Because you showed us love, because without you, there’s no us,” Shemar said.
David got in on the message to reveal, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” The actor also reassured fans S.W.A.T. would now get a proper send-off.
It’s been a big week for Shemar. Not only was S.W.A.T. renewed, but he went back to where his acting career began, The Young and the Restless.
