SEAL Team is about to air season 5, and apparently, the Bravo team is going to be bamboozled by their superiors. Season 5 will start with the Bravo team dealing with the after-effects of losing one of their own members. In the first episode of the season, the team won’t do a training exercise as planned, but will instead be tasked to do something far more important.
According to TV Line, the premiere, titled Trust But Verify: Part 1, will have the Bravo team shocked to learn that a supposed training exercise is actually a “cover for a covert mission to get a weapons expert out of one of the most dangerous countries in the world.” This is according to CBS.
Photos released from the first episode show the team learning more info about the mission.
Aside from the plot details, it seems that cast members are getting pumped for the return of SEAL Team. Star Jason Hayes David Boreanaz recently posted an epic helicopter pic with the team. He said that “Season 5 is coming in Hot.”
‘SEAL Team’ Actor Boreanaz Does a Lot of His Own Stunts
When you tune in for season 5, pay attention to David Boreanaz. If he’s in an action scene, he’s probably doing a lot of his own stunts. The SEAL Team actor, who previously starred in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Bones, is no stranger to action. Still, he continues to do his own stuntwork even as he ages.
“My body doesn’t respond and recover the way it used to. But I do 95 percent of it,” he told Collider of his stuntwork. But that doesn’t mean he’s given up on bringing that level of authenticity to his roles.
Apparently, Boreanaz even wanted to do the stunt where Jason Hayes jumps off the bow of a cargo ship, but his stuntman shot him down, telling him he’d break his neck.
Boreanaz is incredibly dedicated to the role of Jason Hayes, and advocates for veterans when the cameras are off.
Only 4 Episodes of Season 5 Will Air on CBS
Trust But Verify: Part 1 is one of the only SEAL Team season 5 episodes that will air on CBS. That’s right, only the first four episodes of SEAL Team season 5 will air before the show becomes available exclusively on Paramount +.
It’s frustrating for fans who don’t want to pay for another streaming service, but it looks like this was SEAL Team‘s only shot at survival. With less than stellar ratings, the show was facing cancellation last year. It was so in danger that star David Boreanaz actually campaigned to renew the show.
Thankfully, it’s been renewed and is starting season 5 off with a bang. You can catch the premiere episode on Sunday, October 10th at 10 Eastern.
