‘The Brave’ is an American military drama series that airs on NBC. The show first premiered on September 25, 2017. Never short on action, always high on drama, ‘The Brave’ strikes the right chord by giving the viewers an insight on what the heroes of America, the men in uniform, goes through when they work for Defense Intelligence Agency, which is like the CIA’s Special Operations Group. The show has been created by Dean Georgaris.
Shows of this format has its set of pros and cons. The advantage is that military drama series are never short on action or drama, and these two are enough to draw fans to them. Thus the show has a pretty solid fan base. However, the downside is that there are several other shows like this including ‘Six‘, ‘SEAL Team‘, and many more. With the market saturated, the content has to be really outstanding to be viewed favorably by critics. Unfortunately, the critics were not too pleased with the content of this series and expressed as much.
The Brave Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘The Brave’ includes Anne Heche, who leads the pack as Deputy Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Patricia Campbell. In an interview, she admitted that when she first read the script for the series The Brave, she was taken aback. “I read the first couple of pages and went, ‘Wait, what?’ We can have an agency on the ground in Washington, DC communicating 5000 miles away from our troops, telling them who to shoot and what the scope of danger is?” she recalls. “That’s when I knew I was in.”
Other characters include Mike Vogel as Captain Adam “Top” Dalton, former Delta Force operator and the communications director for the team. Tate Ellington comes in as Noah Morgenthau, former CIA operative and currently an analyst at the DIA. Demetrius Grosse plays the role of CPO Ezekiel “Preach” Carter, former U.S. Navy SEAL. Natacha Karam joins as Sergeant Jasmine “Jaz” Khan, the team sniper. Noah Mills is seen as Sergeant Joseph J. “McG” McGuire, former Delta operator and the team’s combat medic. Sofia Pernaswill plays the role of Hannah Rivera; former operative turned analyst at the DIA, and Hadi Tabbal as Agent Amir Al-Raisani, intelligence director and the newest member in the team.
If there is an upcoming season, one would expect most of the main cast members to return. After all, they are instrumental to the smooth running of the team, and every member is valuable in this regard. However, we could also see some new characters entering the mix as new team members, which would definitely make the missions more interesting, or we could see some new villains popping up that would require the immediate attention of this team.
