Looking for “SEAL Team” star Max Thieriot? He’s on the set of the soon-to-be-leaving CBS show and sharing a picture on social media.

Thieriot, who plays Clay Spenser on the military drama, took to Instagram for this photo.

He tossed this caption on the photo, too.

Thieriot writes, “Absolutely fell in love with this @sigsauerinc echo3 🥰 Getting to portray some of America’s heroes, spreading awareness for our Veteran’s and getting to use epic gear like this are all perks of the job “.

As we mentioned, Outsiders, “SEAL Team” will have one final episode on CBS. It airs on Sunday night, then the rerun and new episodes will be on streaming network Paramount+.

David Boreanaz stars as Jason Hayes, while Jessica Pare, Neil Brown Jr., Tori Trucks, and A.J. Buckley also are part of the cast.

The show is currently in its fifth season and having it move networks in the middle of it is interesting.

But “SEAL Team” is up to the task and all set to roll out future episodes on Paramount+.

‘SEAL Team’ Star Remembers Physical Challenge Cast Faced Before Show

Everyone who knows a little about the SEAL Team understands that this is a physically demanding role in the military.

Max Thieriot recalls what the challenge was like before a “SEAL Team” episode even aired.

He started playing Navy SEAL Clay Spenser in 2017.

Well, he’s also had a number of acting roles before joining this show.

Thieriot recalls that nothing he’d been involved with compares to this show’s physical challenges.

Talking with Seat42F in 2017 led him to talk about that very thing.

He said, “The course that we ran the other day was super challenging. The rope climb wasn’t too bad. We ended up going the rope wall like 20 feet, not like 12. We did the full course probably like four or five times, so I was really tired after going through it that many times.”

Thieriot Started His Own Vineyard With Childhood Friends

Want some more tidbits about Thieriot? How about he started his own wine vineyard when he was 21 years old.

It is called Senses Wines and the company’s website states Thieriot and childhood friends Christopher Strieter and Myles Lawrence-Briggs established the vineyard.

They also received some help from Thomas Rivers Brown, a respected winemaker.

The vineyard is located in Sonoma County, Calif.

So, how are the grapes selected and prepared for wine?

“Grapes are hand sampled and harvested at ideal ripeness, cold-soaked for a few days, fermented with yeasts indigenous to the vineyard,” according to the website. “And ultimately pressed and barreled into a selection of our favorite French cooperages.”
