Last year, of the 26 scripted CBS TV series we tracked during the regular season, the SEAL Team TV show ranked eighth in the demo and 12th in terms of total audience size. If that was just beginner’s luck, the ratings will drop off in the second season. But if this show has the soul of a warrior, it could even increase its audience this time around. Will SEAL Team be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A CBS military drama, SEAL Team stars David Boreanaz, Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., AJ Buckley, Toni Trucks, Jessica Paré, and Judd Lormand. The 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 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.
