The Last Ship is an action-drama series, loosely based on the 1988 novel of the same name by William Brinkley. The show has been a great performer in terms of ratings and viewership. It has received positive reviews from critics throughout the four seasons. It has been created by Hank Steinberg and Steven L Kane. It premiered on TNT on June 22, 2014.
The Last Ship Cast: Who is in it?
All the core cast members returned to play their roles for the last time.

The Last Ship Plot: What is it about?
It is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a pandemic has wiped out 80% of the world’s population and the crew of the lone unaffected US Navy Ship with guided missile destroyer, the USS Nathan James, must try to find a cure, stop the virus and save humanity. It is very disheartening for the fans of the show that it is going to end after the fifth season. But one good thing that happened in the cancellation is that the news of it was announced before the production on the fifth season started. This means that the creators knew that the show will end and they planned the end accordingly. This ensured that fans wouldn’t be left hanging from a cliff like some of our favourite shows have left us after being cancelled. They will surely get closure in the last season of the show.
