It is being reported that S.W.A.T. has been cancelled by CBS after six seasons. The news comes with two weeks left in the drama's now-final run, with its episode on May 19 set to serve as its series finale.

The cancellation is somewhat surprising, as the show has actually improved its linear viewership year over year significantly since it was moved to a Friday time slot. Along with 'Fire Country' and 'Blue Bloods,' it has made CBS the place to be for Friday night dramas. But unlike the other two, S.W.A.T. is not wholly owned by CBS.

Shemar Moore stars in the Los Angeles-based series, which follows a former Marine tasked with running a specialized tactical unit that acts as the city's last stop in law enforcement. Raised on the streets, he is torn between his loyalty to his roots and his allegiance to his new brothers in blue as he works to bridge the divide between his two worlds.
