The military drama is moving to a new home this year.
May 18, 2021
It was announced today that SEAL Team has been officially picked up for a fifth season. It won't be on CBS though - at least not all of it - as the military drama will be on the move to Paramount+ after its first few episodes start things off on CBS this fall.
The hour-long series had been seen as on-the-bubble for a renewal, so today's move to the streaming service likely helped it secure Season 5 - though some longtime fans will likely be disappointed in its departure from broadcast network television.
SEAL Team follows an elite unit of Navy SEALs composed of a tight-knit group of patriots with fearless dedication. Deployed on clandestine ops around the world, its members embark on these dangerous, high-stakes missions knowing the toll it takes on themselves and their families.

James, I may be wrong but I don’t think people are mixing up cable and streaming. The people that are paying a lot for cable don’t want to add more $$ for streaming (even if it’s $5.99) to watch a show, especially if it was a show previously included with cable.

It seems like so many people on this site think streaming is cable. It is not. You can wait until every episode has been uploaded then get the service for one month a $6. When the month is up you can cancel having only paid $6. Some services even give free trials.

I am a big fan of this show. IMO it was the best drama on broadcast TV. David Boreanaz should have at least been nominated for an Emmy. Unfortunately the theme of this show -- the toll defending this country takes on its soldiers -- is not a big consideration these days for most people.
The action scenes obviously cost and probably the ratings couldn't justify leaving it on broadcast TV. Maybe CBS is counting on a dedicated if small following that will subscribe to Paramount+.

This isn't that big of a deal you can get it off pratebay and still see it. Heck I've watched all the shows on that app this way

I wouldn't call $5.99 an expensive streaming service...

Just pirate Bay it if you can't afford it and stop whinging

Wait, Tivo is still a thing in 2021? That doesn't seem possible.
I'm curious if the shows will change in any way now that there are different broadcast standards on streaming services.

Gee I wonder what ''reality'' shit will take its place.

Can anyone who takes the time to watch tv actually afford all these various streaming services. Cable alone is breaking me! Even the British shows split into Acorn and Britbox. Everyone seems as annoyed as I am so how are all these pay services succeeding? It seems like every time I hear about a show that I want to check out, I have to pay to do it.
I was trying to decide whether to keep watching SEAL team. I haven't really liked it since they killed off the wife way back when. I have my answer. At least it will leave more space on my Tivo.

Why do they take everything good and put it on an expensive streaming service??? So not cool! I LOVE this show and now it's cancelled for me. Streaming is not an option everywhere. Not everyone lives in one of the giant cities. I hate streaming. Taking 3 hours to watch a half hour show with all the buffering and crashing and reloading is such a pain that it's not worth it. And I even live in a city, just not LA or NY or Chicago, and have Xfinity. Yet streaming is horrible. This is a terrible move and I'll never get to see one of my favorite shows ever again. Why are they doing this? All the best stuff gets moved or cancelled leaving the garbage behind for decades. You'd think these companies would want viewers, yet they make sure most viewers can't watch, then they wonder why they lose money.
