An action series, the SEAL Team TV show stars David Boreanaz, Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., AJ Buckley, and Toni Trucks. The military action-adventure series centers on an exclusive Navy SEAL unit as they train for, plan, and risk their very lives to carry out perilous missions for the sake and honor of their country. Fierce and focused Jason Hayes (Boreanaz) leads the Tier One team. Despite the hardship it causes them and their families, this SEAL team is ready, willing, and able to embark upon secret missions at the drop of a hat. Team members include Jason’s trusted confidant, Ray Perry (Brown Jr.); loyal yet self-destructive Sonny Quinn (Buckley); and young Clay Spenser (Thieriot), a multilingual and second-generation SEAL. No-nonsense DEVGRU Intelligence Officer Lisa Davis (Trucks) is assigned primarily to Bravo Team.
SEAL Team ran for four seasons on CBS and, though it has a devoted fan base, it struggled in the ratings and was at risk of being cancelled. The series was picked up for a fifth season last spring but moved to Paramount+ as an exclusive.
CBS aired the first four episodes of the season as a “special presentation”, no doubt to entice viewers to subscribe to see the rest of the episodes. SEAL Team has reportedly done well for Paramount+ and the streamer renewed the show for a sixth season earlier this month. There will be just 10 episodes this time around, a typical order for streaming services.
Paramount+ has now announced that a movie will also be produced for the service. It’s unclear when it will be released but it’s described as a standalone feature so it won’t bridge between the fifth and sixth seasons. The movie will come from the series creative team of Boreanaz, Christopher Chulack, and Spencer Hudnut. Additional details will be released in the future.
On social media, Boreanaz said of the movie announcement, “Wheels up! Here we go. Excited to bring this to the next level.”
What do you think? Have you been watching SEAL Team on Paramount+ or, did you say goodbye when it left CBS? Are you looking forward to watching the sixth season and the movie?
