TNT has renewed its hit summer drama series, THE LAST SHIP, for a fifth season. The show is currently closing out its third season and the season finale will air on Sunday, September 11 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
THE LAST SHIP is reaching an average of 7.1 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms and ranks as one of basic cable’s Top 10 summer dramas with adults 18-49.
In July at the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour, TNT and TBS President Kevin Reilly announced THE LAST SHIP had been picked up for a fourth season. Today’s announcement expands that renewal to a fourth and fifth season, each with 10 episodes.
“THE LAST SHIP has taken viewers on an exciting ride through three truly thrilling seasons,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. “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.”
