It’s a fantastic news for the fans of TNT’s “The Last Ship” that the showrunner has declared one more run for the post-apocalyptic show. The show had ended more than a month ago and the viewers thought it would not be continued in future. Now the updates regarding the show ensure that the third season would come back in the summer of next year.
The showrunners, Steve Kane and Hank Steinberg, had an interaction with The Hollywood Reporter regarding the future seasons of the show. Kane said that the open ending was accomplished intentionally and the production actually had a purpose to continue with the story leaving season 2 of “The Last Ship” with some mystery and surprise.
“It was purposely ambiguous. … We like the idea of showing that the show’s not over, that there’re still threats out there. Otherwise, it felt like, ‘Well, I guess they got the cure. Why keep watching?’ It’s part of the structure,’” Kane opined.
According to Ecumenical News, during the interaction Steinberg poured some light about the upcoming third season saying that it would see a comparatively a bigger “The Last Ship.” On the other hand, the characters are said to be confronting new foes, complications, challenges and those issues that turn their work difficult.
When “The Last Ship” ended its previous season, Eric Dane’s character Captain Chandler and his group had given all their endeavors to disseminate the cure, which was developed by Rhona Mitra’s character, Dr. Rachel Scott. But unfortunately, everyone did not want to have the cure, as reported by Vine Report. Some other groups including those who were immune to the disease resisted Dr. Scott and his group’s return to the United States.
“The Last Ship” season 3 will reportedly return on TNT anytime soon in the next year. But the date is yet to be declared.
