TNT has cancelled The Last Ship after five seasons, according to star Travis Van Winkle.
“After five years, that’s a wrap on The Last Ship. An experience that taught me so much about being a man[..] To the cast.. I love you. To the crew.. I love you. To the writers/producers.. I love you. Danny Green.. Thanks for the memories. Signing out.”
In theory, the advanced notice gives the writers enough time to resolve The Last Ship on a ‘satisfying’ note without major cliffhangers.
The fifth and final season of The Last Ship is expected to premiere summer 2018.
