SEAL Team’s David Boreanaz sends support as co-star lands major new role | Television & Radio | Showbiz and television
Max Thieriot, better known to SEAL Team fans as Special Warfare Operator Clay Spenser, is teaming up with CBS for his upcoming series, Fire Country. Her next lead role just received a full series order for this year’s fall schedule, and her on-screen friend David Boreanaz took to Instagram to celebrate the news.
Fire Country will join crime drama East New York and legal series So Help Me Todd for a full run later this year on CBS.
SEAL Team star Max would do double duty for both shows after it was confirmed that he would indeed be returning as Clay following Bravo Team’s disastrous Mali mission.
With a second major role coming to the network this year, Max recently posted an update on Instagram to let his 574,000 followers know he’ll be back on screens soon.
He wrote, “Wow!!!! I’m amazed, excited, humbled and proud, but more than anything, I’m grateful!”

“So grateful for all the people in my life! The incredible team behind this show and the incredible actors who put their hearts into it.
“You all pushed me, supported me, listened to my crazy ideas and loved me through it all. Can’t wait for you to see Fire Country! Let’s go!!!!” [Sic]
Several followers praised the star in the comments, including Master Chief Jason Hayes star David.
“Good work!” he wrote. “From a SEAL To Fighting Fires!” BACK!” [Sic]
Along with taking on the lead role, Max is also a key creative force behind the primetime rescue series.
Drawing inspiration from his childhood in California, he co-wrote the story with Grey’s Anatomy writing partners Tony Phelan and Joan Rater.
Fire Country, East New York and So Help Me Todd are now set to launch CBS’ 2022-23 schedule after five explosive cancellations earlier this month.
The network has confirmed Magnum PI, USA of AI, B Positive, Good Sam and How We Roll will sadly come to an end after their current seasons.
In the meantime, SEAL Team fans are holding their breath for Bravo Team after a shocking cliffhanger ending in the fifth season.
After jumping onto Paramount+ last year, the slightly shortened new episode concluded in January with the fates of several Navy SEALs uncertain.
Will Clay be able to pull through after taking shrapnel, or has Max’s time on the show come to an end at the perfect time to move on to his next role?
SEAL Team Seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Paramount+ in the US and Sky Go and NOW in the UK.
