Two CBS dramas — SEAL Team and Clarice are purportedly on the move to Paramount+. That’s according to a report from Deadline.com.
Neither SEAL Team, now ending its fourth season, nor Clarice, ending its first, were listed in CBS’ recent renewals announcements, which included 2021/22 scheduled returns for Blue Bloods (Season 12), SWAT (Season 5), NCIS (Season 19), Magnum PI (season 4), FBI (Season 4), FBI: Most Wanted (Season 3), The Equalizer (Season 2) and Bull (Season 5).
The dramas join the previously announced comedies The Neighborhood, Bob Hearts Abishola, and Young Sheldon (the latter recently receiving a three season renewal).
As both SEAL Team and Clarice are in-house productions, the move to the relatively new CBS-owned streamer makes sense, particularly if the alternative is cancelation.
According to Deadline, but unconfirmed by CBS as yet, agreements are still being hammered out but will include a deal for SEAL Team to commence its fifth season on CBS, airing possibly up to 4 episodes on the network before transitioning to Paramount+. Meanwhile, Clarice will stream its second season exclusively on Paramount+.
CBS canceled dramas MacGyver, NCIS: New Orleans, and comedy series Mom and The Unicorn earlier this season.
