Shocking no one, TNT announced today during its TCA presentation that it has renewed hit series The Last Ship for a fourth season of 13 episodes that will air in summer 2017. The announcement comes amid a strong performance for the post-apocalyptic show in its third season, with a viewership average of 7.6 million so far.
Based on the novel by William Brinkley, The Last Ship follows the crew of a U.S. Naval vessel miraculously spared when a global pandemic wipes out nearly all of humanity. It stars Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin and Bridget Regan along with Charles Parnell, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling, Christina Elmore, Jocko Sims, Bren Foster and Kevin Michael Martin. New episodes air on Sunday night at 9 PM on TNT, with episodes from the first half of the current season available via TNT on demand, TNT’s website and the network’s mobile app. The show is produced by Turner’s Studio T in association with Platinum Dunes, with Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form executive producing alongside co-creators and showrunners Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane, and directors Paul Holahan and Michael Katleman.
