SEAL Team season 3 was set to premiere on CBS in just over two weeks, but moving forward behind the scenes, there are some changes behind the scenes.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the production company CBS Television Studios and showrunner John Glenn have parted ways and his overall deal has been terminated. This move comes after an internal investigation into claims made against the executive producer, which reportedly were not sexual in nature.
In a statement, Glenn had the following to say about his departure:
“I am proud of the work we did — and greatly enjoyed having the chance to contribute to its creative and commercial success … During my time as showrunner, I was pleased to be able to hire, develop and support numerous producers, writers and crew members who shared our passion for trying to make the series all it could be. While producing a show like SEAL Team is hard work, I also believed strongly in listening to any concerns that were brought my way and making important concessions for our staff’s professional needs and personal lives. I look forward to my next steps professionally.”
Glenn’s attorney also issued a statement to the aforementioned website, one in which it is said that the showrunner “disputes” the findings that were reached within the investigation.
This is not the first behind-the-scenes change when it comes to SEAL Team, and at the moment, Spencer Hudnut (also an executive producer on the series) will step into the showrunner role. It may take some time in order to learn one way or another if this becomes permanent. We can just say that, at least for now, this is the direction that the show is moving. There are no signs that any of this will delay production of the third season, so it will be business as usual for David Boreanaz and the rest of the cast. They’ll work to bring these stories to life.
