 “The Last Ship”
Season Premiere Sunday, June 12, at 9 PM ET/PT on TNT

          The wait is nearly over. TNT's epic drama “The Last Ship” is preparing to set sail again in its quest to save humanity after a devastating pandemic. Eric Dane (Grey's Anatomy), Bridget Regan (Agent Carter), Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck), Travis Van Winkle (Heart of Dixie), Marissa Neitling (Leverage) and Jocko Sims (Masters of Sex) star in the high-impact series,

          Based on William Brinkley's popular novel, “The Last Ship” chronicles 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. But now, Captain Tom Chandler (series star Eric Dane) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors.

 

          Following the epic second-season cliffhanger, the highly anticipated third season finds the crew of the Nathan James shifting their attention to Asia after President Michener hears rumblings that the Chinese leader, President Peng, has been hoarding the "Scott cure" instead of distributing it to the people in the region. Michener sends Chandler to a global summit to investigate this allegation, as well as rumors of a possible mutation of the original virus that has caused a fresh outbreak in Japan. If the mutation has occurred, and Asia has not been protected, the consequences for the world are dire. And with Rachel Scott shot at the end of last season, and her fate as yet unknown, hope is in low supply.

          “The Last Ship” also stars Charles Parnell (Pariah), Christina Elmore  (Fruitvale Station), Bren Foster (Days of Our Lives) and Kevin Michael Martin.
