While we all love him as Malcolm Winters on The Young and the Restless, or Derek on Criminal Minds, Shemar Moore is readying another TV comeback announced today via Deadline!

The Daytime Emmy-Award winning actor is now set to star in a new drama pilot for the network which has made him a household name, CBS.  Moore will star in S.W.A.T.inspired by the 2003 Sony movie that was based on the 1975 ABC series produced by Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg.

In concept: S.W.A.T. is described as an intense, action-packed procedural following a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson (Moore), torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.  Moore’s Harrelson, exuding calmness but always ready for action, has all the ability to become a leader – he’s just not happy with the reason he just became one. The role was played previously by Samuel L. Jackson in the 2003 movie directed by Clark Johnson.

The pilot will be executive produced by The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, Neal H. Moritz, Justin Lin and Aaron Rahsaan Thomas, as well Shemar Moore will serve as a producer on S.W.A.T.

Excited to learn that Shemar may be back on his way to primetime TV? Do you hope he will come back for another return visit to The Young and the Restless sometime soon? Comment below!

”Steel yourself Shemar Moore fans: The heartthrob is coming back to network TV.
((a video you can’t see lol)
In S.W.A.T, a presumably –frequently shirtless Moore– will play Daniel ‘Hondo’

It’s a plum role for the 46-year-old longtime actor, who told TVGuide.com as he was departing Criminal Minds last year that he was “looking for his Homeland” i.e. a place where his talents — and, we have to assume and hope — those splendid pecs and abs can shine–

The original “S.W.A.T.” series, produced by Aaron Spelling, ran for two seasons on ABC in the mid ’70s. The 2003 movie, based on the TV show, starred Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Farrell, LL Cool J, Michelle Rodriguez and Jeremy Renner.S.W.A.T. (TV Series 1975–1976) ”
OK– my google search ^^ tells me;
Moore will be showing us abs, lots of shirtless time to display his 6 pack ..
((I seen ’em in the video heh..

I liked the series when it ran back in the 70s. The movie was pretty good. I am going to tune in to see Shemar take this new character although I don’t expect to see it run as long as “Criminal Minds” has if it does get a green light to go ahead to series.

i hope everything works out with this reboot because the reboot of “ironside” and “rush hour” didn’t do so well…………………….

Love me some Shemar! His Malcolm really rocked Genoa City back in the day and he is still missed. Always glad to see daytime family continue to succeed in their careers because they really do become like family!

Does anyone know when this is going to air? I am looking forward to seeing it.

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood to Visit ‘The Talk’

Hot on the heels of this week’s shocking and controversial episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, three-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) is one of the guests on the upcoming Monday March 4th episode of The Talk.

Wood, has been at the epicenter of the storyline, which saw this past Monday that Steffy presumably stabbed and killed villainess Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) to her death. Following Sheila’s apparent demise, Steffy’s husband Finn (Tanner Novlan), who is the biological son of Sheila, finds out his wife stabbed his mother.

Instead of showing more concern for his wife almost being attacked by Sheila, Finn has shown his ‘inner-Sheila and can’t seem to get over the fact that Steffy ‘killed’ his birth mom, which is causing trouble in their marriage and as fans ultimately believe, will lead Finn into the arms of Hope (Annika Noelle).

Clearly, Jacqui will have plenty to ‘talk’ about with The Talk co-hosts: Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood.

In addition to Wood, The Talk will also welcome actor Scott Caan (son of the late James Caan) who will be on-hand to promote the premiere of his Fox series, Alert: Missing Persons Unit which begins its new season on Tuesday night, March 5th.

The Talk airs on CBS and streams live and on demand on Paramount+ weekdays at 2:00 p.m. ET/1:00 p.m. PT.

So, are you rooting for Steffy in this one? Should she break-up with Finn? Will Sheila be revealed alive in a few months? Comment below.

Steve Burton’s ‘General Hospital’ Return Previews Jason Has Blood on His Hands

Monday, March 4th is the day that Steve Burton returns to General Hospital in the pivotal role of Jason Morgan. The story of Jason’s re-emergence on the canvas has been kept under wraps.

However, PEOPLE has a first-look photo, and in it, Jason has blood on his hand. Not only does he have crimson on him, but he is dressed in black and standing behind a dumpster.

When viewers last saw Jason it was back in November of 2021, when a tunnel collapsed on him as he was attempting to save his brother Drew (Cameron Mathison). For the past two plus years, every one in Port Charles has believed that Jason had died.

Burton’s initial run as Jason was from from 1991 till 2012. After exiting and signing on with Y&R to play Dylan McAcoy, the actor eventually returned to the daytime drama that was his home in 2017. Later, during the Covid-19 pandemic, he was let go from the series by the end of 2021 for not adhering to the Disney/ABC vaccine mandates at that time.

While away from GH, he rejoined the cast of Days of our Lives in 2023, resuming his original soap role of Harris Michaels that he played in 1988 and the year prior on the Peacock limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter Two. With the tape schedule well ahead of streaming, Burton will be doing double duty for a short term, where fans can catch him on DAYS, and now on GH.

Previously, Burton said on his upcoming GH storyline, “I got to talk to the head writers. This story is going to be sick. It’s gonna be awesome. So, make sure you keep watching, because the pieces of the puzzle are gonna be fit for when I return.”

Fans should also make sure to catch today’s Friday, March 1st episode of GH as Jason’s return story begins to unfold.

So, what do you think will be how Jason returns to GH starting next week on all-new episodes of GH? Comment below.
