SEAL TEAM will be down a core member in its upcoming fourth season, Give Me My Remote has learned.

Jessica Paré, an original series star, will no longer be a regular on the CBS drama.

Though Paré’s Mandy Ellis was part of the CIA, she spent the first two seasons as the liaison to Bravo Team. After Mandy’s demotion at the end of season 2—due to giving up a CIA asset to save them—she spent last season adjusting to her new role in their world

Mandy played a key part in the unexpected season 3 finale, “No Choice in Duty,” as Jason (David Boreanaz) came to see his colleague in the episode’s final moments—and the duo shared a passionate kiss. (Filming on SEAL TEAM season 3 was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)

While Paré will no longer be a regular, sources say she’ll appear in some episodes of the upcoming fourth season, including the two-hour premiere.

SEAL TEAM stars Boreanaz, Max Thieriot (Clay Spenser), Neil Brown Jr. (Ray Perry), AJ Buckley (Sonny Quinn), and Toni Trucks (Lisa Davis). Spencer Hudnut, Christopher Chulack, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, and Boreanaz are executive producers.

Reps for the show had no comment about Paré’s exit.

Will you miss Mandy on SEAL TEAM?

    Yes I will miss Mandy cannot imagine the show without her probably just list some fans. Me included. Bad move.

  2. Emily on November 13th, 2020 7:55 pm

    Wow. SEAL T. What a way to treat one of the best characters on the show.

  3. Drake on November 13th, 2020 8:26 pm

    Why did they do that? Deal breaker, I’m done

  4. Diane on November 13th, 2020 8:50 pm

    Mandy coming back for an episode or two throughout the season. For what? Y’all broke her down mentally, what is she coming back for? Fir the same hook you used her for from the start as a potential squeeze for Jason? Ugh SEAL T. has never really appreciated this character but the fans do. Character betrayal.

  5. Bev on November 13th, 2020 9:38 pm

    So production didn’t have any comment cowards! What the heck she coming back for? This is probably gonna be the last season. Judd ( Blackburn) is now in a recurring role. Really huge disappointment and I haven’t decided if I will continue watching

  6. Jack bauer on November 13th, 2020 10:03 pm

    I think she marries Jason. And

  7. Neil on November 13th, 2020 10:04 pm

    Sad news, Mandy was a fan favorite, and will be missed…. the chemistry with Jason’s both professionally and personally, was one of a kind and potentially one of the best in a currant series. I cannot imagine cutting a wonderful character like Mandy….

  8. Sonja on November 13th, 2020 10:12 pm

    I’m gob smacked… what a terrible thing to do….budget cuts? What? maybe they could have cut the extravagant battle scenes, but to cut our brilliantly beautiful CIA agent Mandy Ellis back to guest is unforgivable…

  9. William on November 13th, 2020 10:23 pm

    Mandy was CIA and not military so she was the odd man out… and I guess had to go..great character, the show will not be the same without Mandy Ellis, they better understand that now….

  10. Donna Small on November 13th, 2020 10:45 pm

    Such a disappointing decision. No more Mandy on Seal Team?! Sorry producers but she was a very much beloved character. She added balance to the character dynamics. The show will not be as interesting this coming season.

  11. Mj on November 13th, 2020 10:57 pm

    I love the show, I love all the characters, hate to see one of the girls go, but I love looking At those handsome men, they are all sexy and I watch, reruns on demand, I love army shows and seal shows , an this one is really looking more true to life. So please do season 5,6,7,8

  12. Kate on November 13th, 2020 10:58 pm

    Absolutely awful decision. It will not be business as usual she offered a very special dynamic, he relationship with Jason was unique. and had been worked on for 3 seasons. Terrible!

  13. Audry Montgomery on November 13th, 2020 11:05 pm

    I personally am glad. I never liked her part. She always acted like she was the cats meow. Just my opinion. So don’t go getting all up set. I love Seal Team. My absolute favorite show

  14. Tj on November 13th, 2020 11:07 pm

    I wonder how many episodes she will be in out of the 16 scheduled… I feel so betrayed, and I have wasted 3 seasons watching this show… I don’t know if I can do that again.. feel really bad for Jess Pare, they have betrayed her too..

  15. Ann on November 13th, 2020 11:14 pm

    Jess Pare played Mandy Ellis perfectly. and has built a large fan base, she will be missed, you would think that the fans deserved an explanation from production.i guess everyone’s expendable… not happy.

  16. Ben on November 13th, 2020 11:46 pm

    Those of us who know what clandestine service means and what these people do for our security, enjoyed watching Jess Pare build her character has been fun, and ST has made a mistake. Terrible decision.

  17. Tonya on November 13th, 2020 11:59 pm

    What were they thinking? Awful,decision. Makes Chicago PD look that’s much better…

  18. Gabriel Devera on November 14th, 2020 12:00 am

    Yes, going to miss a seasoned regular, she was a main part of the show!!!

  19. Dean on November 14th, 2020 12:03 am

    Yea its alit messed up she’s gone but so what you won’t even realize she gone after a few episodes. It’s not like jason or ray or Spence or sonny is off the show that would be fucked up.then I could see someone saying that won’t watch anymore but To say you’re never gonna watch the show anymore cause mandy gone is crazy it’s still gonna be a great show.i know I’ll be watching it..I can’t wait..and for the other dummy who said cut the fighting scenes is stupid if you cut the fighting scenes then you got no show without them the show will be really shit then…..

  20. Nancy Negron on November 14th, 2020 12:11 am

    This is a devastating lost. I can’t believe she has been cut like that. This show have made bad decisions since season 3 cutting Mandy out almost completely to leave room for Jason’s relationships with Natalie was one of those. Season 1and 2 were great in part because the relationship of Jason and Mandy in the field they were awesome they separated them the show hasn’t been the same since. Toni Truck is fine but she is not Jessica pare, is irreplaceable. We will missed her and once she is gone I’m gone. I’m not watching Jason go through another fail relationship. 3 seasons 3years for this and for what, no can’t do it. Sorry. Love David Boreanaz watch all 12 seasons of Bones had some disappointments there hope this was gearing to be an epic love story because that’s where we got taken to since season 1 so I’m done with dissapointments. My heart can’t take it. So to Jessica Pare we love you i will watch your episodes and exit the show the day you do. Not sure the show will survive this. Maybe this is the last season.

  21. Malcolm on November 14th, 2020 12:25 am

    Dumb decision won’t be the same without Mandy, guns and grenades aren’t all there is to this show, JP was great and supposed to guest every once in awhile…really??

  22. Amanda on November 14th, 2020 12:29 am

    Terrible, gut wrenching, grown to love this character, beats Davis all to pieces at HAVOC, it’s a fan and character betrayal….not happy.

  23. Sophie on November 14th, 2020 12:42 am

    Hope she makes her incontestably fine presence fit elsewhere – and doesn’t settle for marrying Jason or deployed elsewhere as a fictitious punishment! Love the show and need many more seasons to satisfy my viewing hunger!

  24. Julie on November 14th, 2020 12:47 am

    You can’t be serious, taking out a key player. Have you ever heard the expression ‘if it ain’t broke DON’T fix it’. Your gonna loose alot of your fan base!!!!

  25. Neal on November 14th, 2020 12:50 am

    So many comments in support of Jessicca. I really liked her character, but her being gone will not be a deal breaker for me. Mandy is CIA, and can be reassigned at any time. She lost favor, right or wrong, with her superiors. This is Government!

  26. Deborah on November 14th, 2020 12:50 am

    This is just horrible,why would they take her out she fit perfectly in Seal Team, she belongs, and demotingher was bad enough. Put her back as a regular. She will be missed.

  27. Sandy on November 14th, 2020 1:09 am

    No!!!! You should not remove Mandy! Bring her back for good!

  28. Alan Seeling on November 14th, 2020 1:25 am

    Sorry to see her leave. Tough on us who know nothing.

  29. Lewis on November 14th, 2020 2:01 am

    Actors themselves often choose to leave successful shows. Do we know if that’s the case with Jessica, or if she has been written out by the show? Let’s not jump to conclusions too quickly and condem the show’s producers. I actually didn’t want to see Mandy and Jason get together because they’re both broken and would only get worse IMO. She needs to do something where she’s not having to use and potentially betray people, and Jason needs to finally exercise his demons somehow. That’s my thoughts, right or wrong, doesn’t matter, as I really enjoy the show and feel like it gives many of us non-military types a tiny window in to what a tough life they and their families’ have balancing two personas.

  30. Murray Gruber on November 14th, 2020 3:13 am

    Simple. Sad she is gone but still the best show on TV

  31. Jane Carter on November 14th, 2020 3:20 am

    Would so live to see her and Jason get together…keep her…..massive fan of show

  32. jo weaver on November 14th, 2020 5:49 am

    this is awful, just when she and Jason were fixing to get together. she is the only person who has been there for him since the beginning. he can talk to her and she understands his job Natalie and Alona never understood the way Mandy does it is a shame to loose but the day David leaves that is when i stop watching

  33. Lance W Wrede on November 14th, 2020 6:02 am

    Absolutely horrible, she is awesome. She saved the team, now know kick rocks, this sucks. What you gonna do next, get rid of Sonny, Dita, or Brock?

  34. T poulin on November 14th, 2020 6:29 am

    Bad move. Need her in show. No way to fill the large hole you are needs her dynamic with or without Jason. I think seal team is slowly signing its own demise which is too bad because an awesome show.well it WAS an awesome show

  35. Charlie Welshans on November 14th, 2020 7:21 am

    I like her beautiful and a badass but the show is about the teams and a very good one as a former Military Marine that says alot.great job .keep it up

  36. Charm on November 14th, 2020 7:23 am

    ST has really screwed up, I’ve watched this show for 3 seasons, and the dynamics between Jason/Mandy being the primary reason, really good chemistry…they hooked me, but they are not going to keep me with the same bait, Mandy returning as a guest in unspecified episodes…no!

  37. Steve on November 14th, 2020 7:26 am

    This is bad news I’m waking up to, not a happy camper and don’t think I’m going to watch with much interest,,if at all…

  38. Johnny Rokett on November 14th, 2020 7:42 am

    She gave the series a real civilian point of view. That takes out a huge dimension of the show. What are they thinking? Her character is a real person, relatable, vulnerable, and someone normal people could understand and sympathize with. A bad decision to eliminate this character.

  39. Val on November 14th, 2020 7:49 am

    This is not good news at all, Mandy added another dimension to the show that will be missing now, or are they going to give that to Davis too? I have to thank JP for portraying Mandy so well, you will be sadly missed….

  40. Lance on November 14th, 2020 8:07 am

    Mandy not being on the show regularly is a huge mistake. I have been a fan of the show since the beginning and this is one of my favorites. Loosing Mandy is a bad move because she is the one woman that understands Jason. The series left off with those two being intimate which I have been waiting for along time and now it just ends. She is a powerful figure on the show and I hate this move. So disappointed.

  41. Lance on November 14th, 2020 8:15 am

    just thinking if you have to get rid of someone and its one of the women get rid of Davis she doesn’t add much to the show anyway. Man so upset bring Mady back.

  42. Cindy on November 14th, 2020 8:15 am

    What are you thinking? I guess Mandy/JP is the punching bag, she gets demoted, for saving the team, she gets demoted for who knows what or cares anymore… awful decision..the show is now one dimensional, does Davis do the interrogation work now? Damn, you all,have treated Mandy terrible…..

  43. Shaney on November 14th, 2020 8:23 am

    Production doesn’t have any comment, really!! I am furious, to the point of changing my Wednesday’s night viewing, and I have a feeling that, she will appear as a guest in some episodes in 4, as away if softening the blow, how many? its discretionary, they may or may not, I’m not going to swallow that bait again…

  44. Jenn on November 14th, 2020 8:41 am

    I feel so betrayed, investing time and emotion in a show that has merit, and the wonderful characters that have drawn us in…. but, to lose this beautiful, brilliant, brave character who has added another’s dimension to the show is just about more than I can take….love JP no I feel for her too, this role was a more serious one for her, and not an easy one, but she made Mandy Ellis real, and I am completely bombed.

  45. MaryElizabeth on November 14th, 2020 8:47 am

    So glad for this. Sorry but she is awful. Great character but bad actress. After the finale I was so disappointed she was with Jason. D Boreanaz deserves so much better.

  46. Anya on November 14th, 2020 8:50 am

    Wth? It appears that Mandy Ellis is ST piñata..feel bad for JP she has done a great job and deserves better, oh, and so do her fan base…btw.

  47. Maggie on November 14th, 2020 8:54 am

    I’m a BIG fan and love the show. I’ve always thought she was the weakest link! I think Jadon kissing her was lame. Something about her timing was off, she just wasn’t of the same caliber as the rest of the team.

    I wish her well, but the show will be better without her.

  48. Philip on November 14th, 2020 8:59 am

    Awful news, great job by JP and she has a lot of followers, DB will carry the show because his loyalists, see him as their own personal guy, no one is good enough, and he does no wrong, but believe me this is gonna hurt the is now one dimensional….

  49. MikeM on November 14th, 2020 9:10 am

    I really liked Mandy and considered her a key element in the best storylines. She’ll definitely be missed. If it was her choice to leave, perhaps for other commitments, then best wishes. If she was asked to leave, then once again we see showrunners demonstrating just how stupid and feckless they can be. And having no comment? Just a bunch of big dopes…

    Seal Team, like The Last Ship, was fun and riveting to watch. There’ll be a big hole to fill when it wraps.

  50. Keith on November 14th, 2020 9:29 am

    Many commenters are assuming she was cut against her will, but we don’t know. She may have asked for a reduced roll for personal reasons. The fact that she will return occasionally shows that she is still in good terms with producers. I just hope Seal Team continues with the same types of plots and stories. I used to be a big fan of The Unit, but that show devolved into a soap opera more each season. Now THAT was sad. As long as ST stays true to the types of episodes that made them great they will be OK.

  51. Alex on November 14th, 2020 9:37 am

    Jess Pare did not ask for this in fact she was devasted…and shame on ST she added so much to the show…

  52. Eddy Williams on November 14th, 2020 9:41 am

    I liked her character and will continue to watch this show, I hope that season 4 is not the last,

  53. Donna on November 14th, 2020 9:50 am

    Looks like Judd ( Blackburn) and Mandy took the hits as far as screen time, Judd is now recurring and Mandy guest… ouch, two of the best characters on the show get gut punched….it was not JPs idea, any more than it was Judds,to cut their credits…ST will not gain any much needed fans for this decision in fact the opposite…

  54. Carroll Allen on November 14th, 2020 10:14 am

    I’m really sorry that she is going.
    I wonder if you can help can you tell me which channel I can receive seal team please

  55. Dana on November 14th, 2020 10:21 am

    Something I’m not getting, are we supposed to negate 3 years of a carefully crafted beautifully acted relationship between Mandy and Jason? the developments in the deployment episodes… just freaking dashed, seriously? She is of no further use as a hook, character, to simmer on the back burner, I don’t like feeling duped

  56. Jennifer Howe on November 14th, 2020 10:32 am

    Yes I will miss Mandy she was so good in her part .

  57. Audrey on November 14th, 2020 10:35 am

    I’m devasted, Mandy/JP didn’t deserve this, I feel so betrayed

  58. Jan stawsk8 on November 14th, 2020 11:21 am

    Seal Team is the BEST SHOW on TV. Why is Mandy not
    Included????? Kind of breaks up the story line. Dont get me
    Wrong itll still be the best show on TV but surely will miss

  59. Mickey on November 14th, 2020 11:49 am

    I will miss Jessica Pare! I thought there was a spark between her and Jason and it would have been a nice storyline to follow!😪

  60. Brenda on November 14th, 2020 12:23 pm

    Terrible idea, why is it always Mandy that gets punched in the mouth… and no one comes to her aid…. strongest character on the show,…feel really let down that I have wasted my time…for 3 seasons

  61. Jean on November 14th, 2020 12:40 pm

    So much for that, have lost faith and trust in production…

  62. Em. on November 14th, 2020 1:11 pm

    Terrible decision, Mandy had a huge fan following from when this show started….wonderful character thanks to JP…. she and Judd lormand had two of the best episodes last year, and he’s been demoted to recurring, and she’s now a “guest”.

  63. Debbie on November 14th, 2020 1:54 pm

    Said she would be back in a few eps in 4. wth? To do what? have a drink at the bar, walk around Davis desk…. awful,way to treat JP sadly dispappoimted

  64. Brenda on November 14th, 2020 2:10 pm

    Not happy at all! She was my favorite! A strong female character is what I enjoyed. Had hoped for her and Jason. Now not so sure I care to continue. Utterly disappointed.

  65. Katherine on November 14th, 2020 2:12 pm

    I guess this is why JP posted her new look on IG a couple of weeks ago, she knew then she was cut from regular to guest…. she has added to her resume as a serious dramatic actress. excellent job and Mandy has a huge fan base… and we are not at all happy… have lost trust in ST production

  66. Sunny on November 14th, 2020 3:52 pm

    Tragic, production said she may appear in several,episodes in 4. I guess we can all play that game. I may watch a few episodes in season 4.

  67. Tammy on November 14th, 2020 4:00 pm

    JP/Mandy and her fans deserved better than this, terrible way to be treated..after developing her character for 3 seasons to have her cut back to guest is a low blow..

  68. Debbie Daniels on November 14th, 2020 4:37 pm

    Sorry that Mandy is leaving the show for whatever reason but she is far from the main character I’m very excited for the new season that certainly won’t stop me from watching the Seal team

  69. Mary Ann Zakrzewski on November 14th, 2020 4:38 pm

    Not happy she’s leaving, it was just getting interesting between Jason and her! Figures!

  70. LIsa, on November 14th, 2020 4:46 pm

    Mandy added another perspective to the show, which will now be missing, and as one of the main characters in the show she will definitely be missed,

  71. Lynne on November 14th, 2020 5:44 pm

    So, they pull this crap, and then say bit she’ll be back for a few episodes in 4. Expecting us to tune in in case she is inn an episode. I’m sorry but I don’t trust this production team anymore with this character…

  72. Frisco on November 14th, 2020 6:22 pm

    I enjoy the chemistry between Jason and Mandy. Hence, it’s disappointing to know that the latter character is leaving the show.

  73. Grace on November 14th, 2020 6:30 pm

    I feel like I owe ST and it’s production team as much loyalty as they’ve shown this great character, a few episodes in 4. Jess and Mandy didn’t deserve this….

  74. Judi on November 14th, 2020 6:40 pm

    Good grief people! I have been a loyal watcher/fan since day one and I will continue to be a fan(as long as Sonny, Clay and Jason remain). I love the dynamics of all the personalities and will miss her character but definitely not at the expense of not following the show anymore. I am very happy to see it’s been renewed for another season, “whew”!!! Cannot wait to start watching it again.

  75. Lynn on November 14th, 2020 7:01 pm

    Sorry to see her character leave, but I won’t be leaving with her. I enjoy the show too much to give up on it because an actress/actor, for whatever reason, is no longer part of it.

    The characters, the stories, the authenticity, the dog! are reasons I watch. From what I’ve read, the show does a lot for veterans and I believe that is worth supporting.

    Wishing her the best and hoping the show continues on!

  76. Joe on November 14th, 2020 7:24 pm

    Yes, l will most definitely miss mandy (Jessica Pare’) whether she decided to leave on her own or was booted from the show. She played a smart CIA operative and expert on Middle East issues and culture. Her evolving relationship with Jason was a minor subplot, not really the main thrust she brought to the team. Bad for the show imo, but maybe good for Jessica.

  77. Mark on November 14th, 2020 7:54 pm

    She was my favorite! 😷

  78. Kt on November 14th, 2020 8:24 pm

    I’m a character driven viewer and it’s a character driven show. So when my fave character is reduced to a guest spot every now and then I’m not a happy camper. Think it was a terrible decision E by

  79. Jim on November 14th, 2020 8:28 pm

    Yes I will definitely miss Mandy was such a great CIA operative and had a commanding presence at HAVOC something Davis lacks. I think this is probably ST last season these guys getting a bit long in the tooth for Sp. Ops

  80. Ravi patadia on November 14th, 2020 9:05 pm

    Mandy is very important character of this show. Please Don’t Go any way dear.

  81. Didi on November 14th, 2020 9:16 pm

    She is one of the shows main originals, so yes I’m gonna miss her. I cannot imaging production doing this to her, it. I hope she will come back I’m
    Going to miss her professionally and her snd Jason together. It sort of negates what kept me in the show

  82. Don on November 14th, 2020 9:27 pm

    Bad idea, hate it, she was my favorite character,

  83. Deborah Daniels on November 14th, 2020 10:27 pm

    Sorry to hear Mandy’s leaving the show for whatever reason. I sure am looking forward tripping new season. I love that show.

  84. Anne on November 14th, 2020 10:54 pm

    A little clarity here, I would like to think that it’s budget crunch, and she will not be totally gone. It stated she will be a guest in some episodes in 4. She didn’t quit snd they didn’t fire her. So that’s good news , because this show is not the same without CIA Agent Mandy Ellis

  85. Don on November 14th, 2020 11:30 pm

    Bummer. Mandy is a bug part of SEAL Team. Will not be the same without her.

    Hope producers reconsider.

  86. Terry on November 14th, 2020 11:50 pm

    I am so disappointed…i can’t believe it.. shes awesome and wishing her and Jason hooked up. Hope they change their minds.

  87. Barbara Tabler on November 15th, 2020 12:27 am

    Hey everything will turn out just fine.Producers are great.Not just one person makes
    a show.It’s always a team effort..,, get it? SEAL TEAM, good luck ya’ll,

  88. Sandy on November 15th, 2020 7:00 am

    Mandy adds an extra touch to the show hopeful this is only temporary because it will not be the same without her….

  89. Cm on November 15th, 2020 7:37 am

    So, are they going to just pretend the build up of 3 seasons didn’t happen between her and Jason? Just poof she is written out of the show, they leave it up in the air, she will appear as a guest, wth? Loved Mandy Ellis she is a huge part of my watching the show, take her out and it won’t be the same….

  90. Paul Sagnelli on November 15th, 2020 8:01 am

    I am and 100%disabled Vietnam Veteran. The Seal team show was wonderful just the way it was why would you ruin a good thing. She was and very important part of the chemistry your company had going. I survey from from severe PTSD depression and watching a show like this made me feel good even during times that members lost their lives during episodes. Regular citizens will never understand the connection members of your unit have on you not for a day month but forever a lifetime. I am now 70 and still connected even by distance to
    Many of them. Shame on your production company for ruining a good time. Please you need to correct this foolish thing you guys did

  91. Monique on November 15th, 2020 8:24 am

    I love this show it is lame what they have done
    to Mandy’s role cause she saves seal teams
    butts when there in trouble so who’s going to save their butts now when they get in trouble? No matter what I will always love this show it is my favorite just whatever you do do Not get ride of any of the ones on the show in uniform please, and please have them dress in uniform correctly I don’t know why but it bugs me when they don’t like when davis wore a ponytail and not a bun with her hair. Thank you to all the men and women who have and still are serving.

  92. Jamaicah_Diwinter on November 15th, 2020 8:29 am

    Mandy was retoriat,a good and a true thinker when it comes to get the bad guys ….I really admired her BUT what the seals is giving back after her saving them is not fair

  93. DM on November 15th, 2020 8:51 am

    I have to shake my head, what are you thinking? Mandy has always been an underappreciated character, she is a civilian and doesn’t wear a military uniform, but she’s equally as important…. she saved their asses many times without as much as a thank you…..but she doesn’t do it for praise she does it for duty…. shame on you SEAL Team….

  94. douglas j krantz on November 15th, 2020 8:54 am

    Maybe the character will be pregnant you guys ever think about that one

  95. tam on November 15th, 2020 8:59 am

    Wow, Hollywood never cease to amaze me…. bumping Mandy Ellis back to guest, is without a doubt one of the worst ideas to come from a production team… they have teased and created a great relationship between Mandy and Jason on all levels, for 3 seasons…. and just about the tim it’s to go somewhere they jerk the rug out… somthqt tells me her character was created for that propose and I resent being manipulated….

  96. Reg on November 15th, 2020 9:17 am

    What’s going on at ST? Dont blame COVID I understand the challenges that brings to everyone not just tv production…. this began in early season 3. remember, Mandy’s demotion to interrogator after saving the team, one in which she was supposedly to be so much happier, yeah that one!! Production began pushing her aside and bringing her back….. so I may confused I think they are about to go off the rail …terrible way to treat one of the best, and least supported characters on the show….

  97. Glenda on November 15th, 2020 9:30 am

    IM really irritated about this ST pilot began a relationship between Bravo1. and the CIA Analyst for theteam Mandy Ellis…. they share service, sacrifice and trust, FF to Season 3. she’s sort of pushed aside in her new gig…as interrogator and he slides into all kinds of issues that morph into other issues that end up in an affair with his doctor.soem good scenes with mandy but not as many, FF to the end of 3. theybend the seasonnwith a passionate kiss, this relationship can be so good for these two but looks like no, they gonna find a way to screw it up again, and I’m in for 1-2 but tentative for the rest because I’m worn out with it,..

  98. David on November 15th, 2020 9:39 am

    I knew they were going to find a way to efff, this show up….

  99. Daryl on November 15th, 2020 9:53 am

    If you are removing her character then damn you need to make a spinoff starring her character!! Her character was one of if not the best one of the entire series!!

  100. Alice Smith on November 15th, 2020 10:01 am

    No matter what I am a true fan. I will watch as long as the show runs. Decisions have to be made and we move on. Thank you for creating such a great show that portrays the life of our military hero’s.

  101. Casey on November 15th, 2020 10:12 am

    Hope JP can later on find a similar tyoe show where she can use her dramatic skills in a more prominent role..they began her slow removal last season, absent in 2 eps. and barely in 2 more while they promoted Jasons head trauma, which became an affair with his doctor… awful….

  102. Tommy on November 15th, 2020 10:27 am

    Production started distancing her from the team, in 3. Looks like more of the same, they have to tear her down mentally, shred the relationship she has with Jason, that’s 3 seasons in the making….and she’ll,just disappear, and maybe I will too.

  103. miram on November 15th, 2020 10:51 am

    Yes I will Mandy’s presence and brilliant skills, she is every bit as important to the success of the missions as anyone else. don’t like the way they used her and Jason’s relationship as a hook, it is not endearing viewers…

  104. Jan on November 15th, 2020 11:18 am

    I’ve already missed Mandy as CIA Liason, she was supposed to have a less stressful job and life too…. but you see where that went….down that dark twisty path to mental, I’ve been upset with production since the beginning of 3. I do have my limits…

  105. Shanna on November 15th, 2020 11:43 am

    Breaking Mandy down is a way for them to either ease her out or allow her to take a different path, back to Jason, it had the potential to become one of the most compelling love stories in a TV series, like the chaplain asked in the the trailer what do you leave behind, and take away, she definitely should be what he takes away, the only woman who really understands him, because she’s walked in his shoes….I would venture to guess that JP makes more money than TT as a reason to drop her to guest….

  106. Ken on November 15th, 2020 12:20 pm

    Yes I will miss Mandy Ellis hats off to JP great job. I imagine this isn’t a money move but it could be disastrous for the show..

  107. Eugene Sandow on November 15th, 2020 12:37 pm

    How about laying off some producers
    or behind the scenes people instead. The people in front of the cameras are kicking butt on the series. Definitely get rid of the writers that decided it was a good idea to get rid of the actors that make the show
    as good as it is.

  108. Eugene Sandow on November 15th, 2020 12:40 pm

    How about laying off some producers
    or behind the scenes people instead. The people in front of the cameras are kicking butt on the series. Definitely get rid of the writers that decided it was a good idea to get rid of the actors that make the show
    what it is. ‘Power’ killed off its main character which was a huge mistake. The show sucks really hard now and nobody watches anymore. Looks like Seal Team is soon to follow.

  109. Nan on November 15th, 2020 1:22 pm

    Taking Mandy Ellis out of the equation is a travesty, and will affect the entire dynamics of the team…. terrible decision…. probably gonna be a last season….

  110. Tammie on November 15th, 2020 1:40 pm

    This news really upsets me, not entirely surprised Mandy seems to be the only character who suffers long lasting consequence, for her transgressions, oh and Ray, the rest just get a little reprimand or 6 wks somewhere else… and back to business as usual..

  111. Elias Marquez on November 15th, 2020 1:47 pm

    Yes I will miss Mandy. Hope she is a guest in many episodes!

  112. Ty on November 15th, 2020 2:49 pm

    I really hope that she is listed as guest to get through the COVID. Altered season, it’s probably a budget issue, but Mandy is and has been a wonderful asset to ST and it’s would be such a character and fan betrayal to treatvher any other way….. Mandy’s every bit as dedicated courageous brave as Bravo.

  113. Emily on November 15th, 2020 3:41 pm

    Pity show runners couldn’t be a little bit more up front with people, they are ambiguous, an it’s annoying, but they started a bit of a mutiny among fans… the majority dont like the idea of Mandy being almost gone….I’m not hanging around another season like last… they need to get Mandy and Jason on a path of some happiness and a future to gether, they’ve used it for 3 seasons, the charm and patience are running out…

  114. Joe on November 15th, 2020 5:55 pm

    Did it ever occur to you that maybe SHE made the decision to leave? Keep saying how the producers are at fault…and nobody knows the real reason. Shows lose great actors/actresses all the time, and some times it’s not the shows idea nor something they can control

  115. Jayne on November 15th, 2020 5:57 pm

    I hate to see Mandy/JP lose any time or episodes, I know budgets have been cut, and conditions are difficult but so goes our world right now. I cannot imagine production, building the special connection between Jason and Mandy, culminating in a passionate kiss that took 64 episodes, and trashing it, that genie is out of the bottle, and they should give it the storyline it deserves…. a good one to explore the other side of a lifetime of service and sacrifice, love and loss….a positive note, some stupid abrupt ending for Mandy is not acceptable… and I’ll be gone…

  116. CJ on November 15th, 2020 7:09 pm

    i doubt this was Jess pares idea, makes no sense, why would she give up a regular role on a series? They reconfigured the cast… it may have been the only way to keep her, and im not happy but at least she will be in some episodes….

  117. Jb on November 15th, 2020 8:13 pm

    Most of you have neither been in combat or have any real idea of what’s going on. SHE cannot be a regular part because of a relationship. That’s the main reason that sonny and Lisa has to keep quiet even before she went to OCS. She will come back as his girlfriend, or love interest.

  118. John Lewis on November 15th, 2020 9:43 pm

    That is so wrong. She is the glue that keeps this series at top ratings. Please don’t screw up your success. Please reconsider. Season 5 would be a gamble without Jessica Pare.

  119. Jenn on November 15th, 2020 11:11 pm

    Jess Pares, Mandy Ellis is a super intriguing absolutely brilliant CIA analyst who has fallen on hard times, since she saved the team… they have been sliding her into the abyss…. sure hope the guest episodes are often because the show is not the same without her….

  120. Dakota on November 16th, 2020 6:50 am

    Definitely miss Mandy, missed her last season when they monkeyed around with her character, and she missed several episodes, didn’t like it then and like it less now.
    Season 1-2, was really good for her but she took a hit when she saved the team…and hasn’t recovered, she is their go to character for gut punching… dthe huts keep coming…

  121. Don on November 16th, 2020 7:42 am

    Yes, I would miss Mandy, and the show would not, and is not the same without her, is it money? I don’t know, but it could be a death knell….

  122. Gerry, on November 16th, 2020 8:58 am

    What the hell are they thinking? Mandy is a great character, even though I have noticed that she loses ground and Davis keeps gaining ground, and is not as convincing as Mandy…. so what gives?

  123. Cissy on November 16th, 2020 10:31 am

    Writing for Jess/Mandy began to slide last year to,the point of me FF much of some of the episodes… it seemed her character has taken the hit…in more ways than one, for the promotion of TT/Davis…. and the horrendous affair with one of Jason’s medical team. Siege Protocol. and Fog of War… were her and Judds best episodes…sad, because she was a fan favorite, and we don’t know how many episodes she will,guest in …… not good…..

  124. Rob on November 16th, 2020 11:14 am

    Yes, I will miss Mandy, she’s been understated from the beginning and is the unsung hero of the show….a huge part of the attraction will be gone….

  125. Ray on November 16th, 2020 11:55 am

    is this the end of ST? Please don’t blame COVID, this started last season….Mandy constantly being pushed aside, the most intriguing charcter on the show. and now she’s a guest

  126. Cm on November 16th, 2020 12:51 pm

    We are just supposed to say that’s okay, whatever you say? SEAL T. Reps don’t find it important enough to warrant a response….so , disappointed on many levels,..

  127. Gary on November 16th, 2020 3:01 pm

    Yes I’m going to miss Mandy, and may only show up when she does…

  128. Sal on November 16th, 2020 3:50 pm

    I will miss Mandy, to the point of becoming disinterested…..

  129. Jay on November 16th, 2020 5:44 pm

    Yes I’m gonna miss her, and I don’t know how they are gonna make this right, and follow the narrative of 3 previous seasons. It’s not going to be good for ST..

  130. Mandy on November 16th, 2020 6:33 pm

    Yes I’m going to miss my namesake. Mandy Ellis is fabulous, and she will be sadly missed on ST. My favorite female character on a network series, and they cut her back to “guest” on some episodes. Bad move!

  131. Walter on November 16th, 2020 7:00 pm

    I didn’t believe this at first. I will miss Mandy on ST, and the hole may be too big to fill. Some episodes in 4. That doesn’t tell me anything very reassuring. I’m really annoyed.

  132. Mike on November 16th, 2020 9:18 pm

    Can’t believe this, man!! This is a low blow, and a possible game changer….

  133. Karin on November 16th, 2020 9:25 pm

    Best female character on the show and they wanna vanish her away ? If this is true it’s not cool. I hope it’s not true considering nobody on the show has made an official statement yet. Mandy’s character is a very important part of the show and she’s the only character that gets Jason and the only one Jason trusts enough to vent. Fingers crossed it’s not true.

  134. Casey on November 16th, 2020 10:36 pm

    Brilliant, beautiful, most underrated bad ass on the show….is one Mandy Ellis….she stole our hearts and won our admiration. 3 season invested in a professional and personal relationship between her and Jason, andits all for nothing JP deserves better and so so her fans, feeling duped

  135. Kaz on November 16th, 2020 11:17 pm

    Hope this isn’t true but I’m not gonna believe it until CBS or Seal Team or Herself mention it.

    I don’t believe it on a website that’s not the business of the show.

    How they even get the info if it wasn’t said by CBS or Seal Team or the actress herself.

  136. Danielle DeGraaf on November 16th, 2020 11:44 pm

    This is an absolute HORRIBLE decision…. Mandy was my favorite character with Jason and I had high hopes for them to get together for the long haul… Shame on ST for doing this… Jessica is a fabulous actress and deserves better than this…. To me, the show won’t be worth watching like it was as my favorite scenes were always with her… WRONG DECISION ST….

  137. Steph on November 17th, 2020 12:04 am

    Looks like there are some changes ahead for ST. and it looks like Mandy/JP gonna pay a big price snd so are her fans. Not good

  138. Stan on November 17th, 2020 7:48 am

    Seriously, CIA agent Mandy Ellis has it all brilliant, brave, dedicated, beautiful, and fun to watch, especially the relationship she and Bravo 1. have developed over time, from the beginning to the present, finally culminating in Jason with deliberation walking to her hooch and kissing her….. is this going to be treated like his other flings? The news of JP guesting in some episodes in 4. is disheartening, and not a good sign for the show overall……

  139. Jason on November 17th, 2020 7:53 am

    A big resounding BOOOOO, ST, CBS, Mandy Ellis is a great character brilliantly played by Jessica Pare. Shame on you!

  140. Melinda on November 17th, 2020 9:03 am

    No word from production on this decision, I guess we don’t deserve an explanation, they live and work in an insulated bubble, and we supposed to roll with the punches as it’s an authentic look into military’s characters and fan betrayal….and we deserve better. Not cool!!

  141. Don on November 17th, 2020 10:08 am

    busting Jess Pare back to guest position on ST was a bad executive decision, she did a great job of making Mandy Ellis her own.. I saw signs in 3. that led me to believe they would find a way to efff it up, and remarked in kind to a friend …. well they did….

  142. Chaney on November 17th, 2020 12:19 pm

    I will miss Mandy Ellis CIA analyst/interrogator extraordinaire without whose expertise Bravo team would have been killed, but her job is at great personal sacrifice, as is Jason’s, I have to hope that her guests episodes address and expand her and Jason’s wonderful relationship, as they mend and find a life outside their respective professions…where Jason and B.1. merge and he finds he can fall in love again….

  143. Em on November 17th, 2020 3:30 pm

    It was the only way this is tolerable is if Mandy and Jason get together and work on a future together, otherwise it’s a deal breaker

  144. Terry VanNatta on November 17th, 2020 5:20 pm

    Jessica is my favorite character. Bring her back on all episodes.

  145. Gunner on November 17th, 2020 6:28 pm

    This will most likely be the last season, you can’t just take away a great character like Mandy Ellis without it hurting the show..they better not wait long to bring her back as a guest or im gone, maybe gone anyway

  146. Ari on November 17th, 2020 6:41 pm

    I will miss Mandy so much the show will not be the same, and please don’t blame it all on COVID, this started last season, when they brought the awful Natalie character in, Mandy got pushed out to make room for that silly storyline..ST is toast

  147. Armstrong on November 17th, 2020 9:20 pm

    Nahh absolutely shambolic. She was a fine character in seal team and was looking forward to seeing a relationship develop between her and bravo one. And what do you mean prod. Could not comment on her dismissal? Thought seal team was a family. Very sad 😔

  148. Audrey on November 17th, 2020 9:56 pm

    Mandy will be missed and some episodes doesn’t tell us much. She is the most underrated and unappreciated characters on the show

  149. Pacquiado on November 17th, 2020 10:20 pm

    I think this is a bad move. these types of moves are series destroyers like what happened with Game of thrones. Bad directing and bad decisions. shows are made for us not for the directors. tell us what is going on and don’t be tit.

    Bring Mandy back. and stop the bs already. Hollywood is turning into bad dream that people will eventually get tired of.

  150. Ben on November 17th, 2020 10:49 pm

    I feel like I been had, watched this show for 3 seasons Mandy was a great asset to the show, and her snd Jason were really special, professionally and personally. MandyJP and the fans deserve better, and what the he’ll does some episodes mean? Just enough not to lose viewers I guess

  151. Tammy on November 18th, 2020 8:31 am

    Yes , I will miss Mandy, guess theybwill dribble her out as a guest,for 4. writing gone to hell anyway, had some weak episodes in 3. and way too much Jason and Natalie….

  152. James on November 18th, 2020 9:43 am

    Love, the beautiful, badass, Mandy Ellis, she brought another dimension to the show, demoting her to a guest role is a betrayal to her and the fans….

  153. Amy on November 18th, 2020 11:57 am

    Yes, yes,yes, I will miss Mandy, ST is on borrowed time in my viewing lineup, if production, can’t resolve and find a fitting future for Mandy and Jason to gether after teasing for 3 seasons….. I’m done…

  154. Jennifer on November 18th, 2020 1:59 pm

    It seems production doesn’t even have the courtesy to comment, the only thing is that she will be in some episodes in 4. Wow. Just enough to keep us hanging around.. that ain’t gonna work… you gonna lose viewers,

  155. Tim on November 18th, 2020 2:32 pm

    Im a bit confused by this, end of 3. There is a passionate kiss after 66+ episodes of hints, nuance and teasing, now Mandy is suddenly a guest, for 4. She was a great character and her and Jason’s chemistry kept me watching…. now it’s over just like that with some guest appearances, are you f— kidding me ? Suicide…

  156. Gary on November 18th, 2020 4:23 pm

    Wth? Mandy will be missed but I saw the signs last season, she is a great character but she’s is CIA not military, and has always been an outsider. I guess the relationship she had with Jason for all 3 seasons, one that kept many of us coming back is over, and she’s been reduced to a guest spot….nice going ST

  157. Shanna on November 18th, 2020 6:39 pm

    If this is true it’s a terrible loss for fans, Mandy was always underrated but her presence was impactful. Davis does not command the role of CIA agent Mandy Ellis, not to mention the intriguing and beautiful relationship with Jason. Definitely a thumbs down

  158. Cade on November 19th, 2020 2:19 pm

    A bad move, Mandy is a huge part of the show, and she and Jason are great together, professionally and personally, take away that dynamic and it will leave a huge hole.

  159. Ed on November 19th, 2020 5:21 pm

    I’m really confused, why would production sideline one of the best characters on the show? Guest, in some episodes, are you freaking kidding me? Mandy/JP has been a key player since the first episode. Looks like the beginning of the end

  160. Michelle on November 20th, 2020 7:58 pm

    I’m really not happy about this either. I’ve looked forward to them exploring the Jason and Mandy angle since the season ended and now to have it go this way is just horrible. She’s a huge part of the show and it’s not right and she I loved the story of her interactions with Davis. I pray they will still use her but even with a shortened season I don’t know they will. I just hope the show isn’t making too big changes.

  161. Cm on November 22nd, 2020 10:27 am

    ST. is on the way out, the move to remove JP/Mandy to guest, bring back Natalie, is the single worst decision of a production team in recent memory. I think they are keeping her for the sole purpose of teasing a relationship, the kiss was just a deployment thing. I will watch 3 eps and I’m basically done with the show. Sad too because it was good. Don’t blame COVID blame shitty writing!

  162. Will on November 22nd, 2020 10:37 am

    I just saw the trailer for the new ST. Natalie’s back, Judd/Blackburn had been cast down to recurring. JP/Mandy has been cast down to guest. The kiss is in the wind, I’m more than irritated, don’t understand why they did this to Mandy one of the best characters in the show, the long connection between her and Jason has been trashed, and he’s back with Natalie, what a betrayal, fan and character.

  163. Ann on November 22nd, 2020 12:51 pm

    I read where Natalie’s coming back too, many is out, except for guest appearances. Wonder how production will spin this. Hugely disappointing but then JP/ Mandy Ellis were always underrated.

  164. Tom on November 22nd, 2020 6:50 pm

    If this is true that Mandy is now a guest and Blackburn is recurring, then I saw where Natalie is back, wth? I guess he’s gonna be “all in “ again. Mandy is the best woman for Jason, and I can see this show starting to go south.

  165. Erica on November 22nd, 2020 8:32 pm

    Just looked at some promo pics and I saw Natalie in Jason’s apartment, with him and Cerberus, what the hell are they doing? Trying to run off some viewers, Mandy us a guest on some eps. I don’t understand. Mandy has one of the best parts on the show. No happy!

  166. Lauren on November 27th, 2020 4:52 pm

    I do not like the sound of where this season is going… the producers/writers didn’t think they built up Mandy and Jason for the last three seasons…really? To exchange Mandy for Natalie (who I heard will be back) is a travesty. Natalie is a terrible character and there is no chemistry between her and Jason, just cringe. I don’t see how she can be his future. I’m very disappointed. Mandy is the best female character on the show and they’ve been teasing the connection between her and Jason this whole time—a connection that he doesn’t have with any other female character and then to go the complete opposite direction. It’s mindboggling or has the audience just been gaslit?—reading too much into interactions, that simply wasn’t there? (I don’t think so). It’s insulting. I guess we’ll see how the episodes next week lay out Mandy’s depature… hopefully it’s only temporary and not permanately, otherwise I don’t think I’ll be the avid viewer that I was and I have a feeling there will be lots of other fans feeling the same way.
