The Last Ship prepares to set sail again in its quest to save humanity after a devastating pandemic.
Based on William Brinkley's novel, The Last Ship chronicles a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world's population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoided falling victim to the devastating tragedy.
But now, Captain Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors.
Following the second-season cliffhanger, the third season finds the crew of the Nathan James shifting their attention to Asia after President Michener hears rumblings that the Chinese leader, President Peng, has been hoarding the "Scott cure" instead of distributing it to the people in the region.
Michener sends Chandler to a global summit to investigate this allegation, as well as rumours of a possible mutation of the original virus that has caused a fresh outbreak in Japan.
If the mutation has occurred, and Asia has not been protected, the consequences for the world are dire. And with Rachel Scott shot in the season two finale, and her fate as yet unknown, hope is in low supply.
Eric Dane, Bridget Regan, Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling and Jocko Sims star in the series. Also starring are Charles Parnell, Christina Elmore, Bren Foster and Kevin Michael Martin.
The Last Ship is produced by Platinum Dunes, with its partners: filmmaker Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, serving as executive producers.
Co-creators and showrunners Hank Steinberg (creator of Without a Trace, The Nine) and Steven Kane (The Closer) are also executive producers, along with executive producers and directors Paul Holahan and Michael Katleman.
