I find it rather funny that a few weeks ago, SEAL Team fans were sweating over whether the series would see a sixth season since it moved exclusively to Paramount+. Those prayers were answered when the official announcement came down that there would indeed be a sixth season for the boys of Bravo Team and even though it’s for ten episodes, it still feels good that the show won’t end on that massive season five cliffhanger.
Well, today we’ve got more good news for all of you as Paramount announced that we will also be getting a standalone full-length film as well. Deadline did make the announcement, but it was picked up quickly by the social media sites of the show which you can see Twitter’s posting below!
Unfortunately, we don’t know much about the film, but we do know that it will not be a bridge between the fifth and sixth season. Deadline also calls the film a stand-alone so it may have no implications on what is transpiring on the series. It will hail from series star and producer David Boreanaz as well as executive producer Christopher Chulack and executive producer and showrunner Spencer Hudnut.
This bodes well for the series’ future as since it has moved to the streaming platform, SEAL Team has been one of the most popular shows and is always trending. With the company’s commitment to now a movie, we can probably expect more seasons and or films down the pipe.
When we last saw Bravo Team, Master Chief Jason Hayes and his unit were in some serious shit. After surviving the black ops Omega mission in Venezuela, things were looking good for the boys and all seemed right as rain. Then before you can say wheels up, the team was dispatched to Mali, South Africa to apprehend an HVT where they were mercilessly ambushed by insurgents.
As their family back home celebrated the shower of Clay and Stella’s new baby boy Brian, Bravo Team was literally in the fight of their lives which ended in three RPG’s being shot at them. The last image we saw was nothing but explosions and smoke as the screen faded to black and all you heard was the sound of Davis’ voice asking for a radio check from all Bravo stations with only static as a response. This was, without a doubt, the biggest cliffhanger ever for the hit show and some were led to believe that it was the series finale.
It is important to note that the next season will only contain 10 episodes which is a cut down from the 14 that filled season five. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as with a shorter season order, we could still get longer episodes and if this is what it takes to have more seasons of a show that has a big budget then so be it. Most streaming series usually contain around 10 to 15 episodes, so this is par for the course. Limited episodes could ensure that we get more seasons of one of the best shows on television.
Also with the movie announcement, this could be another way for the series to stay alive on the platform for years to come.
Head star, director and executive producer David Boreanaz did speak of the changes that lay ahead for the show and that the fabric of the series was definitely going to steer in uncharted waters.
The SEAL Team movie is still being developed so keep it locked and loaded right here for future details as we are your destination for everything action in 2022 and beyond!
