Summer TV Picks: TNT unveils new trailer & key art for Season 2 of the chart-topping hit “The Last Ship.”
Excitement Builds as TNT Unveils New Trailer and Key Art For Season 2 of The Last Ship – Fans at WonderCon Anaheim 2015 Treated to Panel Discussion With Stars and Executive Producers of Basic Cable’s #1 New Series of Last Year
TNT has unveiled a new two-minute trailer and key art for the upcoming second season of the blockbuster hit The Last Ship.
Fans of the series, which topped the charts as basic cable’s #1 new show of 2014, got to see the trailer on the big screen this afternoon at WonderCon Anaheim 2015. They also got to hear about the upcoming season of The Last Ship during a panel discussion with series stars Rhona Mitra and Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle, Charles Parnell, Christina Elmore, John Pyper Ferguson and Jocko Sims … along with executive producers Hank Steinberg (creator of Without a Trace, The Nine), Steven Kane (The Closer) and Jack Bender (Lost). The panel was moderated by TV Guide’s Rob Moynihan.
Based on William Brinkley’s popular 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 (series star 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. The Last Ship is slated to launch its second season on Sunday, June 21, with a two-hour premiere at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).
The Last Ship is produced by Platinum Dunes, with its partners – Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form – serving as executive producers. Co-creators and showrunners Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane also serve as executive producers, along with Jack Bender. Platinum Dunes also brings us the excellent “Black Sails” on Starz.
Later today, WonderCon will feature a session on TNT’s Falling Skies, which will mark its fifth and final season this summer. The panel will feature stars Drew Roy, Sarah Carter and Colin Cunningham, and will be moderated by TV Guide’s Rich Sands.
Falling Skies returns for its final season on Sunday, June 28, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
