SEAL Team’s Season 4 delayed premiere brings a little good news

SEAL Team Season 4 premiere is delayed, but there will be a two-hour special

There’s some good and bad news for SEAL Team fans. We’re waiting a little longer for Bravo Team to return, but when our guys do come back, they’re back for two hours.

Due to the change in programming this week with the post-Election coverage, CBS has had to rejig the fall TV schedule. We should have known this was going to happen, but it is still a little disappointing to know we have to wait an extra week for the SEAL Team Season 4 premiere, according to TVLine.

Instead of bringing the David Boreanaz-directed episode on Nov. 25, CBS will air the episode plus the second episode of the season on Dec. 2. Yep, it’s a two-hour special, and we can partly forgive the decision because of this.

The first episode would have been an excruciating cliffhanger

One thing we had been warned was that the SEAL Team Season 4 premiere was going to include a cliffhanger. The story is a two-parter, and we’d have to wait until Dec. 2 for the ending.

There is one important member of the team that we’re all concerned about when it comes to this premiere: Cerberus. At least we shouldn’t have to wait to find out what happens to him.

The synopsis for the premiere reads that Jason and Cerberus are separated from the rest of the team. If it was Jason and one of the other team members, we’d be a little less concerned. We know the guys have gotten out of some sticky situations in the past. Remember Sonny in the torpedo tube filling with water and Ray left on his own waiting for the rest of the team to catch up to him?

Our big fear right now is that something will happen to Cerberus. He’s not on his game, and it’s clear that he’s likely to be retired soon. However, will he be killed in action before he gets the chance to retire? That’s what we fear, and it’s going to break us if that happens, right? I know it’s going to break me and some friends!

I get the feeling the premiere episode would have been a huge cliffhanger with Cerberus’s life hanging in the balance. Now we have the two episodes back-to-back to give us answers. Phew!

So, while it’s disappointing to wait, I think my stress levels will be all the better for it. Sure, it still takes the same amount of time to find out what happens to Cerberus, but we don’t have a week dealing with whatever evil cliffhanger the writers had in store for us.

SEAL Team Season 4 will now premiere on Dec. 2 at 9/8c on CBS.
