Tv Season Info

US Navy SEAL's Bravo Team, led by Master Chief Special Warfare Operator Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz), is training for a mission in Afghanistan, enacting different scenarios designed to test each team member's skill and readiness for deployment. But when Echo Team, the group that Bravo Team is supposed to replace, gets ambushed and killed in Afghanistan, Bravo Team's deployment is moved up so they can find answers as to who killed Echo Team and why. Joining David Boreanaz in the premiere season of "SEAL Team" are Max Thieriot as Special Warfare Operator Clay Spenser, Neil Brown Jr. as Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator Ray Perry, A.J. Buckley as Special Warfare Operator Sonny Quinn, Toni Trucks as Logistics Specialist Lisa Davis, and Jessica Pare as CIA Officer Mandy Ellis.

Critic Reviews for SEAL Team Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (12)

SEAL Team will serve its procedural mission just fine, but the show could have more of an impact if it was let off the leash.

You'll see where it's going long before it gets there, no matter how far off the missions might be.

[It's a] perfectly serviceable [form] of escapism that should hit that NCIS sweet spot for people who like shows anchored by tough guys who are just vulnerable enough partnered with vulnerable guys who are just tough enough.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

You know what you're getting -- and, if you're OK with that, you'll continue to watch the show.

Jul 31, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It makes for an uninspired and forgettable viewing experience.

May 29, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Creator Benjamin Cavell and his writers pay valuable attention to character and dialogue. It may not rise to the level of Homeland, but at least we see the SEAL team and others as more than action figures.

Sep 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Sonny is definitely the wildcard of this group. It remains to be seen if he can continue to keep his emotions in check in future episodes.

Jan 15, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

SEAL Team is built for success and will probably find it. But like the members of the SEAL Team, it's better on the battlefield than on the home front.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

What's most trustworthy about this series, for now, is the presence of David Boreanaz as the star.

Sep 27, 2017 | Full Review…

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it's successful enough to inspire a spinoff down the road.

Sep 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's nothing noteworthy about the two new military shows, NBC's Brave and CBS's Seal Team.

Sep 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Like the other military drama shows debuting this fall, SEAL Team is meant as a tribute to our fighting men. It's solid, if not going into new territory.

Audience Reviews for SEAL Team: Season 1

  • Jul 20, 2020
    I felt that this was a great show week after week. I was always left wanting more.
  • Feb 21, 2020
    Very good first season!!
  • Nov 26, 2019
    It's a really good mix of action and drama, and looks like a show with a big budget. I also feel very connected with the characters.
  • Oct 12, 2019
    Whole thing feels very realistic. They even have ex-military special ops guys in cast and as producers.
  • Jun 14, 2019
    Good writing and performances. As a Navy Vet it makes me proud!!!
  • Apr 17, 2019
    Great Show!! One of the best currently on the air!
  • Jan 29, 2019
    Amazing show love it, pure action without all the pc that is expected from most shows nowadays.
  • Dec 18, 2018
    Refreshing to see a military-themed show that does some homework and values counsel from the military community. Granted, this has its share of artistic license and drama injected, but it does a much better job than most others.
  • Dec 14, 2018
    great show highly enjoyable ever realistic
  • Nov 02, 2018
    Love how close to reality it is. Even if it is a bit on the hollywood side of reality.
