S.W.A.T. started production from August 4 after a long break of five months. The production of the fourth season of the C.B.S. drama started recently.

The situation has not improved much, but still, the production was started after conducting preliminary tests. The shooting started in the morning of August 4 for the fourth season as the situation remained fluid until the last minute. Filming of the show was wrapped after a full-day shoot in Santa Clarita.
