The Last Ship Enlists Melrose Place Vet Thomas Calabro for 2018 Season

Last Ship Thomas Calabro

Former Melrose Place resident Thomas Calabro is boarding The Last Ship.

Calabro is set to recur next summer, during Season 5 of TNT’s summertime action-drama, in the role of Don Kinkaid, the general in charge of the modest Army that the United States has built up since the end of the plague, our sister site Deadline reports.

The Last Ship was renewed for the upcoming Season 4 midway through its summer 2016 run, then a month later had a fifth season added to that (to air in 2018). The two seasons are filming back-to-back.

In addition to his run as Dr. Michael Mancini on both the original Melrose and its 2009 revival, Calabro’s TV credits include episodes of Greek, NCIS, Glee, Castle and Hit the Floor.
