‘SEAL Team’ and ‘Clarice’ to Move From CBS to Paramount+

“Seal Team” will air episodes on CBS this fall ahead of the move

As part of ViacomCBS’ efforts to leverage the symbiotic relationship between its TV and streaming platforms, the dramas “SEAL Team” and “Clarice” will be moving from CBS to Paramount+ in their next seasons, TheWrap has learned.

“Clarice,” based on the character from “The Silence of the Lambs” by author Thomas Harris, will move to Paramount+ beginning with its upcoming second season. The show has averaged 6.1 million viewers during Season 1. The show is produced by Alex Kurtzman, a major player on Paramount+ thanks to his success shepherding the “Star Trek” franchise on the streaming service.

“SEAL Team,” currently in its 4th season, will kick off season 5 in the fall with a run of episodes aired on CBS, before making the jump to Paramount+. The show averaged 6.5 million viewers this season.

In addition to taking advantage of a platform where popular-leaning entertainment has succeeded — CBS shows like NCIS have performed well on Paramount+, previously known as CBS All Access — the move also makes room on CBS’ packed primetime schedule. The network has previously added a new NCIS spinoff to the fall roster, and on Friday ordered “Smallwood’ and “Good Sam” straight to series.
