It’s SEAL Team that has succeeded in the competition to provide a gripping TV drama on the US Navy SEALs, while others, like History’s Six, have given up.
After the Bin Laden raid in 2011, SEAL Team Six found itself in the spotlight, but they had long already attained a legendary position. The SEAL Team on-screen representation, officially known as the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), is packed with action.
David Boreanaz, who played Angel in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, starred as Master Chief Jason Hayes in Season 5, which left everything up in the air. Will SEAL Team Charlie Mike follow suit?
Here is all you need to know, including how to catch up and what to expect.
Is There A Season 6?
Yes, Season 6 has been officially announced. On February 1st, Paramount+ confirmed it.
The SEAL Team will visit Paramount+ on September 18, 2022, which is fantastic news.
Season 6 Trailer
The new season’s teaser, which Paramount just published, provides us a preview of the main characters and some plotline hints. If you haven’t finished Season 5, stop reading now since there are spoilers below.
We get a few hints about the anticipated cast from the movie. Max Thieriot (Clay Spencer) was confirmed to be there early on by Deadline, but his time on the SEAL Team may be constrained given that Thieriot will also star in and produce the film Fire Country. That seems to be how the trailer plays out: Clay appears to be the most seriously hurt, and while we know he returns to the hospital, it’s not made clear if he survives.
The rest of the cast is as follows:
- David Boreanaz (Jason Hayes),
- Jessica Pare (Mandy Ellis),
- Neil Brown Jr (Ray Perry),
- A J Buckley (Sonny Quinn)
- Toni Trucks (Lisa Davis) in leading roles appear in the trailer, so it looks like their roles continue.
The relationship between Season 6 and the film is unknown. As of right now, there are no specifics on how the tale will develop, so the most we can do is guess.
A cliffhanger closes Season 5. There is a feeling that something was cut off with a 14-episode run as opposed to 22 (for the first two seasons), 20 (Season 3), and 16 (Season 4).
And that’s exactly where we left Bravo Team—in Mali, under attack from an ambush with RPGs. The door was already open for a change in Bravo Team because Clay Spenser had stated that he wanted to leave the show in order to spend more time with Stella and the child and because Jason Hayes had breacher’s syndrome.
Hayes has recently taken measures to start a relationship with Mandy Ellis outside of the team, but no one watching the show will be surprised if this doesn’t happen because the sub-plot of the entire SEAL Team has been about the strain that impacts personal relationships.
The teaser suggests that Bravo Team gets through, but Clay Spenser is hospitalized in severe condition. It’s unclear whether Clay survives, but there’s a suggestion in these photos of a distraught Stella that suggests he doesn’t.
According to the plot, Bravo Team will be sent to Syria for a protracted mission to assist female Syrian fighters. While that plot develops, there is a supporting subplot about mistakes being made and the desire for retribution, which we are confident will be meted out. But there’s also the possibility that Bravo Team will be shut down, which would give the situation a more political slant.
There is a fleeting glimpse of someone leaving Jason Hayes’ apartment with a bag if you’re still curious about Mandy Ellis, his love interest. Mandy may be indicating the end of yet another Jason Hayes romance, but it may also be his daughter Emma.
