Looking back at Watch's exclusive Shemar shoot in Maui will melt the winter blues away

Shemar Moore has a long history with CBS. The actor, who kicked off his career on The Young and the Restless, later stole fans' hearts as Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds. The hunky actor now stars as Hondo on S.W.A.T., where he patrols the streets of Los Angeles as a trained member of the Special Weapons and Tactics police unit.

A few years back, when traveling was a little bit less complicated, Watch was lucky enough to spend some one-on-one time photographing Moore in magical Maui. These exclusive, stunning snapshots are guaranteed to break through the winter gloom and the ice melting.

It'll take a lot more than camo shorts and a pair of tinted shades to keep Moore's muscles hidden.

S.W.A.T. begins its sixth season Friday, Oct.7, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. Stream anytime on Paramount+.
