Set in the not-so-distant future, Last Resort follows the crew of a U.S. nuclear submarine who become fugitives after refusing to fire their missiles. Ultimately, they make camp on an island that hosts a NATO listening station and declare themselves an independent nuclear nation.

Betts, whose credits also include an arc on Harry’s Law, will play Grace Shepard, a gutsy lieutenant working under Braugher’s Capt. Marcus Chaplin.

  • Hope it’s better than “Persons Unknown”. Still can’t forget that ending. Sooo annoying :)

    • I know! We were promised answers at the end of the season, but instead we got cliffhangers!

  • I completely agree!!! I watched the entire season, hoping for some answers and it didn’t answer a thing. It seemed like they started with a plan to answer everything, like the promos promised, but changed their minds and decided to try and make a series out of it.
