TNT has renewed the hit action-adventure “The Last Ship,” basic cable’s top scripted series this summer with adults 25-54. Currently airing Sundays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), “The Last Ship” stars Eric Dane (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Rhona Mitra (“Strike Back”) and Adam Baldwin (“Firefly,” “Chuck”). Season 2 will climax with a gripping cliffhanger on Sept. 6. TNT has ordered 13 episodes of “The Last Ship” Season 3, which is slated to launch next summer.

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, forcing Captain Chandler (Dane), XO Slattery (Baldwin) and the ship’s crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they are among the few remaining survivors.

In the second season of “The Last Ship,” the crew of the Nathan James has begun disseminating the cure developed by paleomicrobiologist Dr. Rachel Scott (Mitra). Their arrival back on U.S. soil, however, has been met with opposition in the form of a new world order under the leadership of Amy Granderson (guest star Alfre Woodward). To make matters worse, Chandler and his crew now face a new enemy: the Immunes, a group of naturally immune survivors bent on taking over the world.

Also starring in “The Last Ship” are Travis Van Winkle, Charles Parnell, Christina Elmore, Marissa Neitling, John Pyper Ferguson and Jocko Sims. The series is produced by Platinum Dunes, with its partners – blockbuster filmmaker Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form – serving as executive producers. Co-creators and showrunners Hank Steinberg (creator of “Without a Trace,” “The Nine”) and Steven Kane (“The Closer”) are also executive producers, along with Jack Bender (“Lost”).

“The Last Ship” launched last year as basic cable’s #1 new series with total viewers and adults 25-54. In its second season, the show is basic cable’s #1 scripted series this summer with adults 25-54 and ranks as one of the the Top 3 with adults 18-49 and total viewers. This summer, the show is reaching an average of 9 million viewers across TNT’s linear, VOD, digital and mobile platforms.
