The Last Ship will sail until at least 2018.
The summer hit post-apocalyptic drama has been renewed for a fifth season, TNT announced Thursday. The Last Ship was already renewed for Season 4 in July, so this is actually more of an extension than a renewal. The fourth and fifth seasons will each have 1o episodes.
The Last Ship follows the crew of the U.S.S. Nathan James, who are among the few survivors of a global catastrophe that wiped out most of the world's population. It stars Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin and Bridget Regan.
The Last Ship's Season 3 finale airs Sunday, Sept. 11 at 9/8c on TNT.
