The Last Ship will complete its final mission when the show returns for its fifth and final season. Eric Dane, Bridget Regan and Adam Baldwin star in this action-packed series chronicling the aftermath of a global catastrophe that nearly decimated the world's population.
This season, the world is finally recovering from the deadly virus that devastated the population, but global political unrest remains.
Tom Chandler (Dane) has retired and his former crew has scattered, many having risen in the ranks within the Navy. Sasha Cooper (Regan), Lieutenant Danny Green (Travis Van Winkle), SBS WO-N Wolf Taylor (Bren Foster) and Sergeant Azima Kandie (Jodie Turner Smith) are on a covert mission in Panama.
When they are wrongly blamed for an attack on the Panamanian president, the consequences for the United States are dire. The Nathan James must fight to prevent invasion by Latin America - and the next world war.
Season 5 is The Last Ship at its most epic, upping the ante on action and excitement, but at its core, it underscores the costs of prolonged war and the toll it takes on the heroes who fight it.
In the first episode of the fifth season, "Casus Belli": Three years after overcoming the global famine, the United States Navy is ready to unveil its first fully functional fleet since the Red Flu pandemic, but a new type of threat may mean the next world war.
The Last Ship also stars Charles Parnell, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling, Christina Elmore, Jocko Sims, Bren Foster, Kevin Michael Martin, Emerson Brooks and Jodie Turner Smith.
The series is produced by Turner's Studio T in association with Platinum Dunes, whose partners - blockbuster filmmaker Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form - serve as executive producers.
Co-creators Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane also serve as executive producers, along with director Paul Holahan. Kane served as showrunner for Seasons 5 and 5, having previously served alongside Steinberg for the first three seasons.
