Is 'SEAL Team' Season 6 the final season of the hit show?
While Season 6 is all set to premiere on September 18, there is no renewal news of a Season 7 just yet
That 'SEAL Team' Season 6 comprises just ten episodes serves as an indication that it might be the last installment of the hit military drama. The CBS series has seen a good five-season run with CBS before moving to a streamer that garnered some backlash from fans. It did come as a surprise that the head honchos at CBS decided to give the series one more installment after speculations were rife that Season 5 would be the final one following a dip in viewership ratings.
Per TVSeries finale, there is no official confirmation about 'SEAL Team' Season 7 at the moment. The rating site gave a clear indication of how the viewership declined over the past couple of seasons. On CBS, the first four episodes of the show averaged a 0.39 rating in the 18-49 demographic and had a total of 3.47 million viewers. When compared to Season 4, this was 19% dip in the demographics and 12% in viewership.
Here's the trailer for 'SEAL Team' Season 6:
Is 'SEAL Team' Season 6 the final installment?
Safe to say that it won't be surprising if Paramount+ calls time on 'SEAL Team' after Season 6. For starters, the aforementioned ratings are one of the key factors that may lead to the show's cancellation. The other possible reason is the ten-episode affair which is lesser than what Season 4 encompassed. While Seasons 1 and 2 rolled out 22 episodes each, the next couple of seasons were below 20, and should there be a seventh and final season, chances are it might be an eight-episode series.
The official synopsis reads," 'SEAL TEAM' is a military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask of them. Jason Hayes (Boreanaz) is the respected, intense leader of the Tier One team whose home life has suffered as a result of his extensive warrior existence.
His team includes his trusted confidant, Ray Perry (Brown, Jr.), the longest-tenured operator with whom Jason shares an ingrained shorthand; Sonny Quinn (Buckley), an exceptional, loyal soldier with a checkered past who still combats self-destructive tendencies; Clay Spenser (Thieriot), a young, multilingual second-generation SEAL with insatiable drive and dedication; Omar Hamza (Barsoumian), senior chief with fifteen years of experience as a SEAL, the son of Syrian immigrants with deep understanding of the Middle East. Vital to the team’s success is Lieutenant Lisa Davis (Trucks), a no-nonsense, take-charge officer. Deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice and knowing the toll it takes on them and their families, this tight-knit SEAL team displays unwavering patriotism and fearless dedication even in the face of overwhelming odds."
