SEAL Team star David Boreanaz is taking to Instagram to tease a consequential new episode. On Friday, he posted a video clip with an ominous-sounding caption to the social media platform.

“Game on! Emotional episode drops this Sunday,” Boreanaz posted. “Will change the TEAMS for many.”

Watch the clip, which features a wheelchair race down a military hospital hallway, here:

SEAL Team Tries to ‘Keep It Real’

In addition to starring on SEAL Team, Boreanaz also produces the show, which is now streaming on Paramount+ on Sundays.

The actor has a lot of respect for military service members. And in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Boreanaz said he has found a higher purpose in telling veterans’ stories and discussing some of the mental health challenges that often follow a military career.

“It’s a blessing and I’m so humbled to play a character that can show this. It’s very easy for us to forget until something catastrophic happens, right? Or if there’s a tragedy that happens, and these men and women do this day in and day out and sacrifice for our country,” he said. “And to be able to play this role, and with this group of guys that are involved, has allowed us to really kind of get into these issues of what they’re struggling with [and] mental health. And it’s deep and it’s scary to watch it unfold.”

SEAL Team tries to hew to the reality of military service and not just play up the adventure angle, Boreanaz said. Their new streaming platform allows them to do more intense action scenes and to delve deeper into character development. And through that, SEAL Team is trying both to entertain the public and to create something that will resonate with real military veterans.  

Boreanaz Tries to ‘Just Be Simple’

Meanwhile, Boreanaz himself has come a long way since his Buffy the Vampire Slayer days. Asked by ET what advice he would give his younger self, the actor offered a metaphorical answer.

“I would just really, it is weighted which is good because it’s made me the artist who I am today,” Boreanaz replied. “So I honor that, right? I’m accountable and I love that. I mean, just stick with the good coffee. That’s all, man. Don’t go to the tea, stick with the good coffee, stay at the right diner and then call it a day and just be simple.”

That philosophy is presumably key to his SEAL Team performance. It remains to be seen what major change is heading audiences’ way or what it will mean for the SEAL team fans have come to know and love. But you can find out on Sunday, only on Paramount+.
