The second season of TNT’s drama series The Last Ship will receive its UK premiere on Sky1 on Sunday July 5th at 8pm, it has been announced.
The Last Ship picks up in the wake of a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world’s population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoids falling victim to the devastating tragedy. But now, Captain Tom Chandler and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors.
The series is based on the novel of the same name by William Brinkley and was developed for television by Hank Steinberg and Steve Kane. The Platinum Dunes produced series stars Eric Dane (Grey’s Anatomy), Rhona Mitra (Strike Back), Adam Baldwin (Chuck), Travis Van Winkle (Heart of Dixie), Charles Parnell (Pariah), Christina Elmore (Fruitvale Station), Sam Spruell (Snow White and The Huntsman) and Marissa Neitling (Leverage).
The show’s 13 episode second season picks up as Captain Chandler (Eric Dane), XO Slattery (Adam Baldwin) and the rest of the crew are working to disseminate the cure that paleomicrobiologist Dr. Rachel Scott (Rhona Mitra) developed at the end of season one.
