Filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina, the History Channel has announced the new (rescheduled) premiere date of the upcoming miniseries Six and released a new video preview for the event.
Six was originally scheduled to premiere this past July but was postponed. The new premiere date has been set for January 18, 2017.
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.
Six had filmed almost two of its eight-episode order when production was abruptly shut down for former lead Joe Manganiello to address an undisclosed health issue. Manganiello’s scenes were subsequently 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.
Six also stars Barry Sloane, along with Dominic Adams, Edwin Hodge, Kyle Schmid, Juan Pablo Raba, Nadine Velazquez, and Brianne Davis.
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 will premiere on the History Channel on Wednesday, January 18 at 10pm.
