TNT Sets Summer Dates for Last Ship, Major Crimes, Jennifer Beals Drama, Falling Skies' Final Run and More

Falling Skies Season 5 Preview

TNT has a very busy summer ahead, with the return of seven favorites plus the debut of three new series.

Among the newcomers, Proof stars Jennifer Beals (The L Word) as a brilliant surgeon who, in the wake of her teenage son’s death, teams with a billionaire tech inventor (Weeds‘ Matthew Modine) to explore recincarnation and such. The cast also includes David Sutcliffe (Gilmore Girls), Joe Morton (Scandal), Callum Blue (Royal Pains) and Edi Gathegi (Justified).

Public Morals, meanwhile, is set in 1960s New York and stars writer/exec producer Edward Burns (Saving Private Ryan) as an officer of the NYPD’s Public Morals Divison, which is populated by cops who walk a thin line between morality and crime as vice-related temptations threaten to snare even the best of them. The cast also includes Michael Rapaport (Justified), Elizabeth Masucci (Inside Amy Schumer) and Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Castle).

      Falling Skies did show some promise but it declined after season 1 and the starchild killed the show…just as it did in the original V series.

    excited for Falling Skies final season! will check out Public Morals.

  8. Mr. Tran K says:

    August 25th can’t come soon enough for the new season of LEGENDS. I predict that the new season finds Martin Odum going “rogue’.

  9. amicam says:

    yeah Major Crimes! Just over 2 months left. Can’t wait for Season 4!!

  10. Amanda says:

    Really looking forward to Ed Burns’ show “Public Morals”!!! I’ve been a fan of Ed’s for years and love his films. After reading his memoir he’s been trying to get this show made for years, originally as a movie, and just made me even more excited to check it out. Plus Spielberg is producing so huge plus.

  11. Liza says:

    Dallas should have been back again this summer!!!! A terrific guilty pleasure!!!

  12. Lizo says:

    Yay Last Ship!!! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed last season.

  13. WylieCoyote says:

    Been waiting for this news! TNT is tied with AMC for my favorite extended-cable network. Only a few others with one show each come second.

  14. Laura C says:

    Can’t wait for new Rizzoli & Isles and Major Crimes. I also like Cold Justice.

  15. LayneJ says:

    Won’t be gracing TNT with my viewing eyes anymore after the way they treated/handled the DALLAS cancellation.

  16. Luli says:

    I need more Maura on Rizzoli and Isles! and obviously more Maura and Jane scenes.

  17. Laina says:

    Really liking Proof. Looking forward to Sean Bean’s LEGENDS. Or perhaps just to see Sean Bean 😉
