There is still hope for the survival of humanity!
TNT announced today The Last Ship has been renewed for a third season, which is no surprise, as it's currently the summer's top scripted program with viewers 25-54.
The Last Ship Season 3 will consist of 13 episodes and air during the summer of 2016.
This summer on The Last Ship Season 2, the team, lead by Captain Chandler (Eric Dane) and his XO Slattery (Adam Baldwin) has started disseminating a cure for the virus responsible for wiping out most of the world's population thanks to the brilliant work of Dr. Rachel Scott (Rhona Mitra).
After they met with some surprising opposition in the premiere that set them back a bit, they later discovered an even more serious threat, the Immunes, a group of survivors immune to the virus intent on taking over the world.
It will be great fun finding out how our heroes rise above all further obstacles in their quest to save the world.
