TNT has unveiled a new two-minute trailer for the upcoming second season of “The Last Ship.” Fans of the series, which topped the charts as basic cable’s #1 new show of 2014, got to see the trailer on the big screen this afternoon at WonderCon Anaheim 2015. They also got to hear about the upcoming season of “The Last Ship” during a panel discussion with series stars Rhona Mitra and Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle, Charles Parnell, Christina Elmore, John Pyper Ferguson and Jocko Sims, along with executive producers Hank Steinberg, Steven Kane and Jack Bender.
Based on William Brinkley’s popular novel, “The Last Ship” chronicles a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world’s population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoided falling victim to the devastating tragedy. But now, Captain Tom Chandler (series star Eric Dane) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors. “The Last Ship” is slated to launch its second season on Sunday, June 21, with a two-hour premiere at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).
When it premiered last year, “The Last Ship” immediately hit the top of the charts and went on to finish the year as basic cable’s #1 new series with total viewers and adults 25-54. For the first season, the show reached an average of 14.5 million viewers across TNT’s linear, on-demand, digital and mobile platforms.
“The Last Ship” is produced by Platinum Dunes, with its partners – blockbuster filmmaker Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form – serving as executive producers. Co-creators and showrunners Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane also serve as executive producers, along with Jack Bender.
