When SEAL Team season 2 premieres on CBS this fall, it is going to be doing so with a new showrunner in to in John Glenn.
According to a new report coming in via Deadline, Glenn (whose previous credits include the likes of Hatfields & McCoys as well as Allegiance) is going to be taking over in the role that was previously occupied by Ed Redlich. Both he and creator Benjamin Cavell are exiting the series in what the aforementioned site describes as a creative shakeup entering its second go-around on the air.
While we definitely understand there being some worry in regards to this change — this is something that does cause problems for many shows out there — we at present are not altogether concerned about what it means when it comes to SEAL Team as a whole. Changes after the first season of a show are fairly common and sometimes, they actually end up working out okay. Take, for example, some of the creative changes that came about leading into Bull season 2 — we would argue now that the show is better than it’s ever been. This is a risk, and it is one that does have some advantages and disadvantages.
Ultimately, what matters most of all with SEAL Team season 2 is if the writers and the cast can find a way to get some conversations started among viewers. We know that the series will have a core demographic that it should be able to reach without too many problems. From here, the conversation should stem to whether or not they are going to be able to get a different crop of viewers watching. That’s the way in which to turn SEAL Team from a hit to one of the biggest shows on TV overall.
