The action drama's upcoming season will be its last.
May 16, 2018
It is being reported that The Last Ship will conclude after its upcoming fifth season. The news, while surely disappointing to fans, at least gives those awaiting the show's fate an update on its status. It has been more than a year-and-a-half since the show was last picked up for Seasons 4 and 5 within a one-month span.
TNT's move to end the veteran series was somewhat expected, as those close to the show appear to have known its fate for some time. The most-telling info came last fall from Travis Van Winkle, who plays Danny, when he posted a since-deleted message on his Instagram account referring to a "series wrap".
While today's news is surely sad for The Last Ship's loyal fans, they can at least take solace that the show will get a satisyfing conclusion to its storyline, as its impending end was clearly known well ahead of time.
Look for the final season to premiere later this year.

Thanks for saying that Andrew, I was also wondering why it was still called the last ship

This show should have ended at the point where the Last Ship was no longer the Last Ship.

I'm glad to see Eric Dane will be free to do other things, not sure what happened with Rhona Mitra but I always felt like the show should've stuck with the virus storyline and just casted another doctor. I recommend watching season one and two but I stopped watching after that, completely different show after that.

I agree with other posters, this series ended after the first couple of seasons. The past few seasons each started with a straw man made-up problem that I never really cared about or believed.

The show ended after Season 2, its just been filling space since then.

I need to quit watching shows on this network. They just cancel them. At least they will give this one an ending!

Great show and this is fiction, so when someone complains about it, I think they miss the point of having a lead actor who is in most scenes. Dah.

Gave up at season 1 when the Commander was going out on grunt missions.. I mean.... really??? Come on!

At least TNT usually gives the decency to let their series have an ending. They do indeed cancel some series but they seem to not be even half as bad as the other networks in this regard.
