Why do we Predict Season 5 Will be Approved?
We believe that Seal Team is likely to be renewed for season 5 based on the following factors:
User scores remain very high:
Seal Team has a loyal fan base that is very engaged and loves the action-packed episodes that the Seal Team production team has consistently delivered, season after season, and episode after episode. Seal Team scores one of the top TVscorecards popularity score at 90%. The TVscorecards score remains steady in this new season. Many other TV series have seen downward trends in their user scores (probably due to the pandemic’s impact on production schedules) but Seal Team’s performance remains super-steady, episode after episode. This is a sign that there will be strong interest for season 5 from viewers.
Some of the top-rated episodes in this new season include:
Horror Has a Face (Jan 21st 2021): Ensign Davis tracks Ray’s location to a shipment container in the Mediterranee sea with the Bravo team trying to rescue Ray before it’s too late. The episode delivered amazing action, emotional tension and a great end to the story line.
Forever War (Dec 2nd, 2020): The Bravo Team reunites with Jason and Cerberus, and team up to go under ground to find booby-trapped tunnels built by terrorist Al-Hazred.
Why Would Seal Team Get Cancelled? (With no Season 5)
We have observed several signals that puts the show at risk of getting cancelled with no season 5 in 2021-2022. The main factor is viewership which is down by more than 10% versus last year.
The current season that released in 2021 is trending down in terms of viewership, with 4.2 average million viewers per episode. Viewership is the primary driver of renewal or cancellation of TV series so this does not bode well for Seal Team’s season 5. If the last episodes of this season start showing a decrease in viewership that is even more pronounced, we believe that season 5 would be at risk of getting cancelled.
However, viewership remains steady episode after episode in the first few months (despite being down versus last year) and user scores are still high. This indicates based on our analysis that viewership is likely to remain steady. As a result, there is no reason to believe that the current downward trend will accelerate. Seal Team has a loyal fan base that will likely continue to watch the show for the last episodes of season 4 and …. for season 5.
