The new seasons of CBS shows, SEAL Team and Evil, will premiere exclusively on Paramount+ after being two of the highest viewed shows on the service.
Popular CBS shows, SEAL Team and Evil will air their new seasons exclusively on Paramount+. The American military drama, SEAL Team, debuted on CBS in 2017, while the supernatural drama, Evil, had its debut on the network in 2019. SEAL Team and Evil will be entering their fifth and second seasons, respectively, and their previous seasons are currently available to stream on Paramount+.
The announcement by ViacomCBS comes at the heels of both shows performing remarkably, as SEAL Team and Evil are among the highest-viewed dramas on the streaming platform, despite originally airing on the CBS. SEAL Team will have a special presentation debut episode on CBS before its new episodes move permanently to Paramount+. However, the long-awaited second season of Evil, its filming delayed by COVID-19, will debut exclusively on the streaming service. George Cheeks, President and CEO of the CBS Entertainment Group, expressed how this decision is an example of how the television network and streaming platform can work cohesively:
Our Studio and Network have a strong track record of developing high-quality dramas that have multi-platform success, and these series speak to that strength. These moves mark another example of how our linear and streaming ecosystem can strategically work together to maximize value for the content and benefit the series and its creators.
On top of bringing Paramount films quickly to Paramount+, capitalizing on the performance of their popular shows like Evil and SEAL Team, is another move the streaming service has made to acquire a more solid subscription base. Evil fans have had to wait over a year for the sophomore season of the supernatural drama, but its recent success on the streaming service proves it has built a moderate fanbase for the show. Meanwhile, SEAL Team has been one of CBS’s most-watched shows over its four season run and hopes to continue that success on Paramount+.
