SEAL Team Season 7 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Ever since the series was renewed for a seventh season earlier this year, in January 2023, the fans have been waiting to get some updates on the official release date, which was initially predicted to have a potential release window around September 2023. Considering the release date pattern of the prior seasons, the schedule for the fall 2023 release doesn’t seem too far-fetched in order to maintain a similar year gap and for the production to begin effectively sometime around mid-2023.
But sadly, as of writing this, it looks like some major changes for the upcoming fall schedule are being revised behind the scenes, which are directly caused by the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, due to which production of the show has come to a temporary halt as the majority of the writer’s room have stopped working on the scripts, resulting in an imminent delay in filming and the release of the new season, which was planned to be a part of the 2023–24 streaming season.
Hence, there is no doubt that the fans will have to wait sometime before the new season makes its official comeback, which is a bit disappointing as neither Paramount Plus nor the show’s official social media handles have officially announced the series’ release date. This has led to much much speculation among fans, but we are certain that in the coming days, the network might consider releasing a new schedule that will include the revised dates, which will be helpful for the fans to avoid such confusion.
Of course, this is just pure conjecture, and anything relating to its premiere will be acknowledged by the network in the coming months. Until then, the fans will have to be patient and keep a close eye on the social media handles of the SEAL Team by following them to get all the latest updates. Also, check out the renewal announcement as shared by the show’s Twitter handle, quoting: “Target acquired: Season 7 of #SEALTeam is coming to #ParamountPlus.”

SEAL Team Season 7 Plot: What can the fans expect?
The series will definitely follow in the footsteps of the prior seasons and be true to the theme that, as per the official logline, states: “The professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs, as they train, plan, and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask of them.”
If you recall, previously, when the Season 7 renewal announcement was made official by Paramount+, there was no mention of the SEAL Team stand-alone movie, which was announced last February, just days after the Season 6 renewal.
Since then, there have been no details revealed about the greenlighted project beyond its creative team, star/executive producer Boreanaz, executive producer Christopher Chulack, and executive producer/showrunner Spencer Hudnut. So, it is pretty much safe to say that SEAL Team Season 7 would follow the events in the last season, with no movie between them, which is a great heads up for the fans who were curious to know about the project’s stays.
Lastly, as mentioned above the next season will pick up where Season 6 ended, “Fair Winds and Following Seas,” in which the viewers got to see a poignant scene, where Jason (Boreanaz) is getting reprimanded for speaking publicly about his TBI. Then everyone on his team steps up, sharing their own traumatic experiences and putting Bravo’s future in limbo.

“We look forward to bringing ‘SEAL Team’ fans even more of the series’ poignant storylines and thrilling missions with the upcoming seventh season,” said Tanya Giles, chief programming officer of Paramount Streaming. “The series continues to evolve and grow its audience. It is a great example of the types of programming that we see resonate with our subscribers.”
“They are once again in jeopardy but most importantly united, and when Bravo steps up for each other, they usually get themselves out of these situations,” showrunner Spencer Hudnut told TV Insider. “What [that ending] does is it kind of tips everything on its head a little bit. But at the end of the day, these guys operating, these guys being out in the field is usually the engine of the show. It’s really, can they get back to that?”
“We’ve done things like that in the past. I just think part of this decision was that just to finish Max’s work this season was such a struggle,” he explained. “The idea of being able to plan ahead and figure that out just seems hard, but we’ll never say no to anything. Clay’s legacy will live on within the show. And yeah, if there’s an opportunity where we could do something like that, I’d be all for it because he’s such a huge part of the show.”
SEAL Team Season 7 Cast: Who will return?
The main cast from the sixth season who are expected to return are as follows:
David Boreanaz as Jason Hayes, Neil Brown Jr. as Ray Perry, AJ Buckley as Sonny Quinn, Toni Trucks as Lisa Davis, and Raffi Barsoumian as Omar Hamza. The recurring cast includes Jessica Paré as Mandy Ellis, Alona Tal as Stella Baxter, Parisa Fakhri as Naima Perry, Jusitin Melnick as Brock Reynolds, Judd Lormand as Eric Blackburn, Mike Wade as Wes Soto, Tyler Grey as Trent Sawyer, and Dita The Hair Missile Dog as Cerberus.
On the other hand, there can be some new additions and removals from the cast as some changes have already been confirmed that the next season will not feature Max Thieriot (Special Warfare Operator First Class Clay Spenser a.k.a. Bravo 6/6B) after the character was killed off last season. Lastly, SEAL Team is produced by CBS Studios and executive produced by Spencer Hudnut, Christopher Chulack, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Mark Owen, and Boreanaz.
The series is distributed worldwide by Paramount Global Content Distribution.

SEAL Team Season 7 Episodes: Where to stream?
The seventh season is expected to include a total of 10 episodes with an average runtime of 43–49 minutes, just like the sixth season. The episode count has been reduced because initially, SEAL Team was a broadcast drama, but after being picked up by Paramount+, all those sets must be kept year-round and are inactive for more than half the time, so the overall episode count has been set at ten every season.
With all productions scrutinizing their budgets, the allocation of budgets has to be planned out in an effective way to deliver the best episodes which the fans truly deserve!
SEAL Team Season 7 will most likely be available on all prior platforms that have the rights to stream the series, as well as on-air on FuboTV or Paramount. Moreover, all the seasons of SEAL Team are currently available to watch for free on the CBS platform. The series is also available to rent or buy on Google Play, iTunes, Vudu, and Amazon Instant Video, based on the viewers’ location with preferred membership plans that the users can choose from.
SEAL Team Season 7 Official Trailer: Has the promotion begun?
The network has not released any new promos for the upcoming season, which will take some time after production starts to wrap up in the coming months. The promotional tour usually begins a month or two before the official premiere of the new season, so there is still a lot of time left for marketing to begin.
In the meantime, watch the official trailer for the sixth trailer, which shows the pressures placed on the members of the Bravo Team, a sub-unit of the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group, the most elite organization of Navy SEALs, as they plan and carry out perilous operations around the world on short notice.
