CBS Renews Freshman Dramas ‘SEAL Team’ and ‘S.W.A.T.’

Both Series Granted Second Season Renewals

CBS has granted second season pick-ups to freshman scripted dramas “SEAL Team” and “S.W.A.T.” for the 2018-19 TV season. Both join already renewed “Young Sheldon,” with an unconfirmed number of new episodes ordered for each.
 
“These exciting new dramas have been sensational additions to our schedule, are striking all the right notes creatively, and really connect with our viewers,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “’SEAL Team’ has strengthened our Wednesday line up – routinely winning its time period with over 10 million viewers and allowing us to build an even more powerful night, while ‘S.W.A.T.’ has improved Thursday’s 10 p.m. hour by over 2.5 million viewers versus last season. Additionally, both are among the very top streamers on our digital platforms, including CBS.com and CBS All Access. We congratulate the talented casts and producers on an amazing year as we look forward to their return next season.”
 
“SEAL Team,” starring David Boreanaz is a one-hour military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous missions that our country can ask of them. And “S.W.A.T,” inspired by the classic television series and feature film, features Shemar Moore as the locally born and raised sergeant tasked with running a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles.
