“The Last Ship’s” journey will continue on TNT for another season.
The Turner network renewed the drama, starring Eric Dane, for a fifth season on Thursday. The show was just picked up for Season 4 in July at the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour. Each season will consist of 10 episodes.
“‘The Last Ship’ has taken viewers on an exciting ride through three truly thrilling seasons,” said Sarah Aubrey, TNT’s executive vice president of original programming. “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.”
According to TNT, “The Last Ship” is one of basic cable’s Top 10 summer dramas among adults 18-49, reaching an average of 7.1 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms.
