Back in 1997, David Boreanaz made a big splash for three seasons as Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and then for five seasons in the same role, in the Angel spinoff. After only a year off screen, he returned to star as Seeley Booth for all 12 seasons of Bones on FOX. Without taking much of a breather, Boreanaz is back as Jason Hayes in the new SEAL Team TV show on CBS. Has he brought his serious small-screen staying power to the Tiffany Network? Will SEAL Team be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A military action drama, SEAL Team stars Boreanaz, Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., AJ Buckley, Toni Trucks, Jessica Paré, and Judd Lormand. The CBS TV 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 the U.S.A. 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. Their love of country and deep resolve is unmatched. **Status update, below.
