The upcoming fifth season of an action drama series running on cable will be the show’s last. Kevin Reilly, president of TBS and TNT, confirmed plans to wrap up TNT’s “The Last Ship,” Deadline reports.
“A sixth season of the show had been considered unlikely,” Deadline notes. “There had been a flurry of rumors about ‘The Last Ship,’ which shot Season 4 and Season 5 back-to-back, coming to an end. When production on the two seasons wrapped last fall, cast member Travis Van Winkle posted (and subsequently deleted) on Instagram about wrapping production on Season 5, which he referred to [as] ‘series wrap,’ reminiscing on the show’s five-year run.”
At the time, TNT released a statement shooting down rumors of the show’s demise.
Season five does not have a premiere date, but Deadline reports that the season will not end in a cliffhanger.
