Max Thieriot, from SEAL Team, may have a new series headed to CBS. The network has ordered Cal Fire to pilot, and the actor both co-wrote and will star as the lead in the potential drama series. This news comes after Paramount+ recently renewed SEAL Team for season six and also ordered a movie.
In the season five finale of SEAL Team, a cliffhanger left Thieriot’s character’s fate up in the air. Per Deadline, the actor could potentially appear on both shows if Cal Fire were to be picked up as a series. The following was teased:
“I hear Thieriot is the only main cast member who does not have a modified-for-streaming deal for Season 6, and his existing option is yet to be picked up by CBS Studios as everyone has been waiting to see what happens with Cal Fire, which has been a passion project for the actor. According to sources, if Cal Fire gets picked up to series, Thieriot could potentially do both shows. I hear everyone is talking and there are positive signs that things would be figured out. SEAL Team’s Season 6 start date has been set in a way that would accomodate Thieriot to do the military drama if Cal Fire is picked up to series.”
Future details about Cal Fire will be announced at a later date.
What do you think? Will you check out Cal Fire if CBS picks it up? Are you hoping that Thieriot stays with SEAL Team?
