TNT’s The Last Ship begins its final voyage on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT. The new official minute-long trailer in support of the series’ fifth and final season finds Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) back on board the Nathan James in one last fight to save the United States of America.
The cast of season five includes Eric Dane (Grey’s Anatomy), Bridget Regan (Agent Carter), and Travis Van Winkle (Heart of Dixie). Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck), Bren Foster (Days of Our Lives), Charles Parnell (Pariah), Marissa Neitling (Leverage), Christina Elmore (Fruitvale Station), Jocko Sims (Masters of Sex), Kevin Michael Martin, Emerson Brooks (Captain America: Winter Soldier), and Jodie Turner Smith (Newness) also star in the show’s final season.
The primetime drama was created by Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane. Steinberg and Kane serve as executive producers along with Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, and director Paul Holahan. Kane is also the fifth and final season’s showrunner.
The Season 5 Plot: “This season, the world is finally recovering from the deadly virus that devastated the population, but global political unrest remains. Tom Chandler (Dane) has retired and his former crew has scattered, many having risen in the ranks within the Navy. Sasha Cooper (Regan), Lieutenant Danny Green (Van Winkle), SBS WO-N Wolf Taylor (Foster) and Sergeant Azima Kandie (Turner Smith) are on a covert mission in Panama. When they are wrongly blamed for an attack on the Panamanian president, the consequences for the United States are dire. The Nathan James must fight to prevent invasion by Latin America – and the next world war.
Season five is The Last Ship at its most epic, upping the ante on action and excitement, but at its core, it underscores the costs of prolonged war and the toll it takes on the heroes who fight it.”
