SEAL TEAM: David Boreanaz Previews the ‘Intense’ Season 4 Opener

SEAL Team David Boreanaz

“God of War” — Bravo Team enters enemy territory in the snowy Spin Ghar Mountain Range to capture Al-Hazred, the leader of a terrorist group and son of the terrorist leader that Jason took down early in his career, and made him Bravo One. When they are attacked, Jason and Cerberus, Bravo’s canine member, are separated from the team, in part one of the two-part fourth season premiere of SEAL TEAM, Wednesday, Dec. 2 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The dramatic two-hour season premiere was directed by Bravo One himself, David Boreanaz. Pictured L to R: AJ Buckley as Sonny Quinn, David Boreanaz as Jason Hayes, Max Thieriot as Clay Spenser.

SEAL TEAL returns with a pulse-pounding two-hour premiere on Wednesday, December 2, as Bravo Team’s mission to take down a terrorist leader takes a turn–and Jason (David Boreanaz) and Cerberus wind up wounded and separated from the rest of the group.

For Jason, the mission hits close to his own history, as they’re trying to track down the son of a terrorist leader he helped kill early in his career.

“I think it’s a tear down, in a lot of ways, from the character’s perspective,” Boreanaz said during a panel promoting the show’s fourth season. “Seeing that he’s been in for so long and leading Bravo team…it’s a process. You’re so gung ho to join and get in and be a SEAL and be a part of that…and then, all of a sudden, you just find yourself going and grinding the mental aspect of it.”

“For this episode, you see a bit of what they were like in the past,” he continued. “We all sat and talked about it. It was a character-drive for all of the characters to tap into what they’re going through. And, obviously, for Jason Hayes being alone with the dog, he was able to kind of get these flashbacks in his head about going after that [first] guy, and some intense stuff.”

The first hour of the premiere was also produced in an unusual way, as much of it was shot in March, pre-pandemic, before the show was shut down—along with all of production—to figure out how to safely move forward in a COVID-friendly way.

“It took] about six or seven months to finish this episode,” Boreanaz, who directed the episode, noted. “And being back at work is a blessing. I know people out there are struggling. And I realize that and we’re so fortunate to be able to tell stories that have such an impact and are so poignant in today’s environment. Stories that are dealing with our military, and I am all but a piece of that wheel; I’m only as good as those people that are next to me. And it was so great to come back to work and get through these guidelines that CBS has [set] and allowed us to continue to tell these stories. We’re also very excited about this season.”

    All that is great and wonderful, but if you all are dumping Mandy/Jess Pare it’s not going to end well. She is a great solo character, and her connection with Jason made it even more special. it’s been 66 episodes of their story and it has the potential to be one of the best, or the worst tv flop in my viewing history.

    Looking forward to the eps tonight. Mandy us in love with Jason you can see the concern and pain in her face. Great job by JP, hope production doesn’t mess this up.

    I was very excited about this premiere until I learned about Jessica Pare exiting as series regular. Mandy’s energy w/Jason was what made be look forward to each episode. There is potential to tell an epic love story there—Jason has more chemistry with her than any other love interest the writers have put with him. Hopefully her being a guest star will lead her being a romantic interest. It would be a damn shame if they don’t go down that road. Like the poster mentioned above… 66 episodes down the drain and a huge letdown to the fans. I probably won’t bother watching if he is paired up with Natalie again. That was awkward/painful to watch the first time around.
