The History Channel has finally announced the premiere date for Season 2 of their Navy SEAL drama, Six. The announcement was made Thursday afternoon on social media, revealing that Season 2 would be premiering on the History Channel on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, and will include 10 episodes. The very first episode of Six premiered in January, 2017. The first season ran for eight episodes with the season finale airing in March, 2017. Since then, the fans of the Navy SEAL drama have been anxiously awaiting the news of a Season 2 premiere date.
Six was created by the father-son duo of William and David Broyles and was a major hit during its first season. According to Deadline, Six averaged 2.9 million total viewers in Live+3 over the first four episodes. Season 1 followed the lives of the members of the legendary Navy SEAL Team Six, led by Joe “Bear” Graves (Barry Sloane). Sloane, along with the rest of his team, Alex Caulder (Kyle Schmid), Ricky “Buddha” Ortiz (Juan Pablo Raba), and Robert Chase (Edwin Hodge) are on a mission to retrieve Richard “Rip” Taggart (Walton Goggins), their former team leader, who was captured by Boko Horam along with a school teacher and a group of female students.
For Season 2, fans can expect even “bigger missions and epic operations,” according to History’s Facebook page. The team will join forces with CIA officer Gina Cline (Olivia Munn), and will head out on a mission to destroy the terrorist group who is responsible for shooting Rip, and find out who is behind Michael Nasry’s (Dominic Adams) jihadist network. Along with Walton Goggins, actors Kyle Schmid, Juan Pablo Raba, Edwin Hodge, Jaylen Moore, Brianne Davis, and Nadine Velazquez will all be returning for the highly anticipated sophomore season. In addition to Munn, there will also be several other newcomers joining the show, including Eric Ladin, Nikolai Nikolaeff, and recurring guest star, Erik Palladino.
The fans weren’t the only ones waiting to find out when Six would be returning. After the initial announcement, Kyle Schmid took to Instagram to share his excitement with his followers.
