Paramount+ gives us the opportunity to raise that even further, and this is why we are on such a streaming service like Paramount+.” Boreanaz exclusively told PopCulture. “The quality has… It has a deeper sense of place. The scenes are tangible, it’s almost like you can feel them. It’s almost like a movie. It’s not to imply that we weren’t producing it over the five seasons that were with the studio and at the network. It outplayed itself, and we were the perfect show for Paramount+. That allows us more freedom with our storylines. This is what we are all about.

Season 6 premiered on Sunday and picks up where Season 5 left off which was Bravo Team being ambushed in Mali. The aftermath led to Clay (Max Thieriot) getting his leg amputated, which is seen at the end of the episode. Despite Clay announcing that he was going to step down from Bravo in Season 5, this is a big blow to the team since he’s been with the team since the beginning. 

“It really is about maintaining the storyline and where these guys go and how they could be hurt,” Boreanaz said when asked about Clay’s injury. “We’ve always maintained that. I mean, at the end of Season 5, we actually see Bravo 1 (Boreanaz) get shot. And that was a pretty intense moment to see, ‘Oh wow, you got the lead of your show getting hit.’ Everyone’s open to that because of the authenticity that we want to bring to a show like this. So the characters revolve around the stories and the stories dictate that.”    

SEAL Team is already off to a strong start, and Boreanaz believes it’s only going to get better. “I know in the first episode we saw the brutal intensity of what war can do on a body, physically,” he said. “And we’ll examine that even more, emotionally, as we continue down the season for these brothers. So it’s just very, very exciting. We were just shooting in Jordan for a month, so that makes the production value even tenfold and the assets that we had. And the people over there in Jordan were just remarkable and they welcomed us with open arms. But it really will benefit the show greatly.” New episodes of SEAL Team air every Sunday on Paramount+.
