While the first teaser did not really show us any action, the History Channel has released a new official trailer for the upcoming miniseries Six, currently filming in Wilmington, North Carolina, and it looks great.
Following Navy SEAL Team Six, whose 2014 mission was to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan, their plan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working as a jihadist fighter with the terrorists.
In this first clip, released online today (via EW), which will debut during this Monday’s premiere of History Channel’s Roots, features brief shots of much of the impressive cast, including Barry Sloane (Revenge), Juan Pablo Raba (Narcos), Edwin Hodge (Chicago Fire), and Kyle Schmid (Copper). Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight) rounds out the cast as a former troop chief captured by a militant group.
Six had filmed almost two of its eight-episode order when production was abruptly shut down for Manganiello to address an undisclosed health issue.
Manganiello’s scenes have since been reshot with Walton Goggins in the role of Rip Taggart, described as a gruff, haggard, and aggressive military man who was once the squad leader of Seal Team Six.
Written by William Broyles (Jarhead) and David Broyles, a military Special Operations veteran, and inspired by current events, Six — History’s second original scripted series after Vikings — follows a brotherhood of modern American warriors, Navy SEAL Team Six, whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists.
Six also stars Barry Sloane, along with Dominic Adams, Edwin Hodge, Kyle Schmid, Juan Pablo Raba, Nadine Velazquez, and Brianne Davis.
Six will premiere on the History Channel on Monday, July 18 at 10pm EST.
