Forgotten since its early deprogramming in 2018, Seal Team returns for a season 2 this Saturday, July 31, 2021. A transition strategy for M6 which intends to quickly get rid of its American series.
After ten seasons and a broadcast that began in 2010, M6 closed one of its cult series on Saturday, July 24, 2021 with the Hawaii 5-0 final delivered precisely between 9:10 p.m. and 9:58 p.m. Rewritten after the cancellation of the eleventh salvo, it allowed the private channel to record a burst of audiences by convincing 1.85 million viewers and 10.2% of them, neck and neck with Les Touristes d ‘ Arthur on TF1.
This Saturday, July 31, 2021, M6 emerges from the closet another American series that some thought doomed: Seal Team. In December 2018, the military fiction carried by David Boreanaz (Buffy the vampire slayer, Angel, Bones) suffered the fate of deprogramming, simultaneously at Quantico, for lack of audience. As a reminder, she follows, like S.W.A.T on TF1, the daily life of the highest elite unit of the Navy Seal, from their training to the planning and execution of the most dangerous missions in the pay of the American government.
After a modest start in front of 1.70 million curious and 9.4% of the public, the second evening and its three unpublished had plunged the level of performance of the channel by collecting the votes only 1.38 million resistance (7.7%). The series was then switched to Friday in the second part of the evening.
The broadcast rhythm for this season 2 is a simple liquidation of the product since those interested will have to follow up to five new releases per evening to not miss any of the adventures. With an end expected after 1 am, M6 will then propose to see the Seal Team pilot again. Seven days later, bis repeated with five unreleased tracks followed by the second episode of the inaugural season. A total of 22 episodes make up this salvo which will normally be sold off throughout August, during the slack period in terms of advertising revenue.
Despite mixed reviews in the United States, members of the Navy Seal are continuing their way because CBS has ordered a fifth season which will begin next October. Not sure that M6 will extend that far, she who gave up every Saturday in August to be competitive from the start.
