Is David Boreanaz leaving 'SEAL Team'?

"Regarding SEAL Team, I am proud of the work we did – and greatly enjoyed having the chance to contribute to its creative and commercial success. During my time as showrunner, I was pleased to be able to hire, develop and support numerous producers, writers and crew members who shared our passion for trying to make the series all it could be," he said in a statement.  

At the end of Season 2, Jason Hayes (David's character) was left in a compromising position, which had many wondering if he'd be leaving the series. Though fans' hearts were eased in Season 3 and Hayes was still very much alive, rumors have started swirling that a major character will be exiting the series in Season 4.

Overall, we're super excited (and nervous) to watch what transpires in Season 4 of SEAL Team

"There are a lot of things that will happen. People will retire. We'll lose people," David teased to Entertainment Tonight about Season 4. "The first two episodes... what a way to go. We discussed those developments and made some positive pivots and moves, and we're excited that we're back up." 

The war drama is brutally real — beloved characters are killed off in the blink of an eye. The program has even received praise for depicted real life war stories. David previously opened up about one of the most rewarding aspects of being on the show, which is getting positive feedback from military veterans.  

The Hollywood Reporter previously spoke with David about the show's response from real life war vets: "To be able to get recognition from the guys that were flying planes in World War II or fighting the battlefront for us, that’s pretty big." 

SEAL Team airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
