The two-hour Season 3 premiere of TNT’s drama The Last Ship will not air tonight as scheduled out of respect to the victims of the massacre in an Orlando nightclub where 50 people lost their lives last night. I hear the premiere contains a scene involving a shooting at a Vietnamese nightclub.
“As a result of the shootings this weekend in Orlando, tonight’s originally scheduled season premiere of The Last Ship has been postponed,” TNT said in a statement. “Our hearts are with the victims and their families.”
Tonight’s season debut of The Last Ship was to feature two back-to-back episodes. The first, which is said to feature the scene in question, is titled The Scott Effect. In it, CNO Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) is sent to Asia to investigate a possible mutation of the Red Flu. Captain Slattery (Adam Baldwin) and his crew deliver cure to Southeast Asia but there may be an unexpected threat in the region.
In the second episode, Rising Sun, Chandler must find a way to return to his old crew and investigate a dangerous new foe. Here is the show’s Season 3 trailer:
