In July at the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour, TNT and TBS President Kevin Reilly announced The Last Ship had been picked up for a fourth season.
Well, fans of the summer hits series got some even better news today when TNT announced that it is ordering a fifth season of The Last Ship.
Both the fourth and fifth season of the series will be comprised of 10-episodes.
“The Last Ship has taken viewers on an exciting ride through three truly thrilling seasons,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. “We look forward to watching the cast and production team ratchet up the drama, action and suspense even more over the next two seasons through summer 2018.”
The Last Ship stars Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin and Bridget Regan and chronicles the aftermath of a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world’s population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoided falling victim to the devastating tragedy.
Now, CNO Captain Tom Chandler (Dane) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors.
Currently in its third season, the series also stars Charles Parnell, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling, Christina Elmore, Jocko Sims, Bren Foster and Kevin Michael Martin.
