TNT Renews 'The Last Ship' For Fourth Season, Greenlights 'Monsters Of God' Pilot
TNT had some big announcements today for fans of the network.
It was both good news and bad news for fans of the TNT network.
As for the good news, the network announced it had renewed Murder in the First, Major Crimes and The Librarians.
Murder in the First will return for its third season in the summer of 2016 with 10 new episodes. Also returning in the summer of 2016 will be Major Crimes which will be entering its fifth season. Right now, the order stands at 13 episodes, but that may change later. Finally, The Librarians will return in the fall of 2016 entering its third season with a 10 episode order.
Now the bad news, while the network renewed three dramas, it also cancelled three dramas.
Legends has been cancelled after two seasons. Many were surprised when the series was renewed for a second season. They series was completely overhauled with new cast members and a new direction fro the series. Agent X never caught on with an audience and was widely panned by critics, so its cancellation doesn't come as a surprise.
The heavily hyped Edward Burns period drama Public Morals although well-received by critics, also never caught on with an audience.

Fans of the freshman series are definitely in a good mood with today's announcement.
TNT has renewed its hit fantasy-adventure The Librarians. One of the hottest new shows on cable, The Librarians burst onto the scene with a chart-topping launch in December and went on to finish the year as basic cable's #2 new series of 2014, second only to TNT's The Last Ship. The show's success extends across TNT's multiple platforms, with each week's episode reaching an average of 11.4 million viewers through linear telecasts, DVR playback and VOD, digital and mobile viewing. TNT has ordered 10 episodes for the second season, which is slated to launch later this year.
Are you looking for a show that combines action, adventure, drama and comedy? Well, TNT thinks it has the show for you. Their new series, The Librarian, based on the television movies, will debut with a two-hour series premiere on December 7 at 8/7c. The series centers on an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around. This group solves impossible mysteries, fights supernatural threats and recovers powerful artifacts, including the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny and Excalibur.
One of the stars of the series is actress Lindy Booth. Lindy plays Cassandra Cillian, the super smart member of the team who has been given the gift of synesthesia--the ability to link all five senses to her memory.
