The summer drama will air through at least 2018.
September 8, 2016
Just over a month since renewing The Last Ship for a fourth season, TNT announced today that it has ordered Season 5 as well. The post-apocalyptic drama, which is gearing up for its third-season finale this Sunday, has continued to be a solid performer for the cable network.
This season of the show has been averaging over 7 million viewers per episode across its multiple platforms, which has kept it in the Top 10 summer dramas on basic cable among adults 18-49. Today's additional season order clearly indicates that TNT sees the show as one of its stronger entries.
While Seasons 2 and 3 of The Last Ship were each 13 episodes in length, Seasons 4 and 5 will be returning to the 10-episode count that it originally premiered with in Season 1. Look for Season 4 to drop in summer 2017, with Season 5 following in summer 2018.

I agree with Ray D. I was upset with tyrant's cancelation, but the last ship renewal for 2 more years is good news. Season 3 started off shaky, but got better as season continued. I am looking forward to finale.

Never made it to the end of season 1... it just got ridiculous when the CAPTAIN of the ship was going out on commando missions rather than sending actual commandos.... I saw this as nothing more than an over-dramatized soap opera. Kind of surprised it's made it this long and isn't dying... yet TNT saw fit to cancel Longmire??? hmm... okay....

I like this show. It isn't the same premise so much about the virus and has become more a political espionage type of show. I do like it it has been quite interesting more so the second half of the season. I think this is the only summer show I watch that has made it out alive.

To the poster above....I felt the same way at the beginning of the season, but it absolutely got better and hit its stride. I wasn't sure where the season was going, and now it all fits perfectly.

While I realize Rhona Mitra's character no longer fit in the story line, the show is not the same without her.

I loved the first two seasons of this show. It was always at the top of my 'must watch' list, but I couldn't make it past the third episode of this current season. IMO, the show should have ended after season two. The entire original promise of the show had been fulfilled, the story was told quite well and if they'd decided to end it there they really would have been going out on top.
When I started watching this season it was pretty clear to me that they were really grasping at straws to find a way to continue the show without making it repetitive, but they failed.
As I said, I only made it through episode three. I'm curious: to anyone who watched this whole season and was a fan of the first two seasons, did it get any better? Now that I see they've been extended two more years I'm wondering if it's worth it to go back and dvr season three and give it another shot....

With Tyrant going down the drain, this is welcome news.
