The Last Ship Renewed Season 4

Barely a month after it was renewed for Season 4, TNT’s The Last Ship now has also been commissioned for a fifth adventure, it was announced on Thursday — days before the action-drama’s Season 3 finale airs.

The Last Ship has taken viewers on an exciting ride through three truly thrilling seasons,” TNT original programming EVP Sarah Aubrey said in a statement. “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.”

Previewing Sunday’s season ender, showrunner Steven Kane tells TVLine, “The finale will answer a lot of questions from Season 3” before thrusting CNO Tom Chandler and the crew of the Nathan James into a new, unexpected scenario. As the season fades to black, “We’re going to be excited to see where Season 4 takes us,” he said.
