SEAL Team season 7 will be the show’s last, as the military drama series will come to an end in 2024, without a standalone movie happening. Following the personal and professional lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs while they deliver high-stakes missions, SEAL Team began on CBS in 2017 before moving to Paramount+ with season 5. The series is created by Benjamin Cavell, with Bones and Buffy the Vampire Slayer star David Boreanaz leading the cast and executive producing. Neil Brown Jr., AJ Buckley, Toni Trucks, and Raffi Barsoumian also star.
TVLine confirms that SEAL Team season 7 will be the show’s last. The final episodes are expected to go into production in early December, with a premiere date set for 2024 on Paramount+. Additionally, it’s mentioned that the standalone SEAL Team movie that was being developed as of February 2022 will not be happening.
What To Expect From SEAL Team Season 7
Toward the end of SEAL Team season 6, the show killed off original character Clay Spenser (Max Thieriot). Clay dies while trying to save a fellow veteran, a storytelling decision which came about partly because Thieriot was leaving to headline another show, the firefighter drama Fire Country, and it took a toll on the remaining characters. Even in the season 6 finale, Jason Hayes (Boreanaz) is struggling to come to grips with what happened to Clay and blames himself.
Clay is replaced by Foxtrot transfer Omar Hamza, who is played by the new addition to the cast Barsoumian. Along with those developments, Jason finally discloses that he has TBI. He even goes into detail about how that has negatively impacted his recent missions. This does not endear Jason to his superiors, given how Jason makes the admission at his Navy Cross ceremony. But in the end, Jason’s team sticks up for him and shares that they’re all suffering from their own traumas.
In one sense, SEAL Team season 6 could have been the end with its massive character death and immense show of solidarity. Instead, it’s something of a cliffhanger: will the team be punished alongside Jason or will their surprise stunt work? The series has one more round of episodes to tell that story, with a premiere window well in sight.
