The Last Ship Renewed for Season 4 at TNT

at . Comments

The Last Ship will continue to sail!

TNT renewed its series about a life after a pandemic that decimated the earth's population for a fourth season.

The announcement was made during the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles.

Things Get Complicated - The Last Ship

The Last Ship Season 4 will air during Summer 2014.

TNT, a division of Turner, has given the greenlight to a provocative new series with NBA legend and Inside the NBA analyst Charles Barkley.

Slated to premiere in early 2017, The Race Card (working title) will follow Barkley as he goes on a personal journey to explore and understand why our country is so divided right now.

TNT has also ordered a pilot for Rod Lurie's post-Civil War drama Monsters of God, from Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment. 

TNT is in the midst of evolving its original programming slate, starting this past June with the premiere of the critically acclaimed hit Animal Kingdom.

The evolution will continue later this year with Good Behavior, starring Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery in a no-holds-barred performance as a complicated woman trying to regain her life. Good Behavior is slated to premiere Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 9/8c. 

In addition to Good Behavior, TNT's fall slate will include the third season of the hit fantasy drama The Librarians, starring Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth, John Kim, John Larroquette and Noah Wyle.

The Librarians season three is set to premiere Sunday, Nov. 20, at 8/7c.

Monsters of God joins two other pilots in the works at TNT: Civil, starring Bradley Whitford, Toby Jones, Courtney B. Vance, Enrique Murciano, as well as guest stars Eliza Coupe and Brian D'Arcy James in a gripping political and social drama that finds America on the brink of a modern day Civil War.

They also ordered Claws, starring Niecy Nash, Harold Perrineau and Jenn Lyon in a wickedly funny dramedy set in a Florida nail salon.

"We're creating premium shows that are also unapologetically entertaining, whether it's through the tenuous and unexpected relationship in Good Behavior, the hard-hitting action of The Last Ship, or Monsters of God, our version of a western chock-full of violence, sex and insane characters," said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT.

The Last Ship Season 3 is currently airing on TNT Sunday nights.
