SEAL Team is back and ready for all of the action.
TV Line debuted the trailer for the show’s Season 5 premiere. The brief clip left us with more questions than we started with. Is the Bravo team ready to stop World War III? Who is Davis eating dinner with? What’s happened in Africa to cause a mass causality terrorist attack?
“Not only are they going off on a mission unlike any they’ve done before,” showrunner Spencer Hudnutbut previously said. “But a mission that will also include some personal elements that will impact each and every operator.”
The Season 5 premiere will take place on Sunday, Oct. 10 at 10/9c. The following day, the episode will air on the Paramount+ streaming service. So when will it officially change to Paramount+? After the West Coast airing of Episode 4, Episode 5 of SEAL Team will debut on Paramount +. The rest of the Season 5 episodes will be released on the platform every Sunday.
‘Seal Team’ Authenticity
When it comes to stunts, it is David Boreanaz‘s favorite aspect.
“I do a lot of it,” Boreanaz told Collider. “My body doesn’t respond and recover the way it used to, but I do 95 percent of it.”
Boreanaz is almost up for anything. Just ask the stunt coordinator and his stunt double who doesn’t get a lot of action.
“War wounds are good (in the show’s production),” Boreanaz added. But sometimes, the insurance and pros have to deny him. The pilot episode featured his character jumping off a cargo ship’s bow. He wanted to do it but was denied.
His SEAL Team double told him, “No, dude, you’ll break your neck with your helmet on!”
Boreanaz plays Master Chief Special Warfare Operator Jason Hayes. Before he signed up for the role, he went through a sort of learning curve.
“It’s tough when you look at these SEALs and understand what they do,” he admitted. “I didn’t fully understand what these guys did and when I signed on, I became more aware.”
There are a slew of actors who have served in the military in real life.
Tyler Grey was in the Delta Forces while Mark Semons was a Seal. They portray Bravo Team’s Trent and Keith in the series. Finally, Tony Nevada, who also acted in “American Sniper,” was also a cast member as Alpha 3.
Additionally, former US Army Green Beret Dan Briggs advises for the show, likely making the big decisions and keeping it as real as possible. Briggs, is also Max Thieriot’s (Clay Spenser) stunt double, was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross back in 2007. The once soldier who became an actor also starred as Derek on the show in a total of ten episodes.
