John Glenn will step in as showrunner for CBS’s “SEAL Team” as the CBS drama undergoes a behind-the-scenes shakeup ahead of its second season.

Series creator Benjamin Cavell and original showrunner Ed Redlich have both exited the David Boreanaz-led military drama. No reason was given for their departures.

A reliable performer for the network since its premiere last fall, “SEAL Team” has averaged 9 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating among adults under 50. Hailing it as its most-watched new drama of the season, CBS handed the show an early Season 2 pickup in March, along with the Shemar Moore-led “S.W.A.T.”

Boreanaz stars in the CBS Television Studios series, which follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous missions that our country can ask of them.

Christopher Chulack, Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly also served as executive producers on the first season. Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., A.J. Buckley, Toni Trucks and Jessica Paré co-star.
