However, Entertainment Weekly, according to the video posted on Spoiler TV, and the interview posted on Entertainment Weekly’s website, managed to speak to the show’s executive producer, and the stars of the series during this year’s Comic-Con at San Diego, regarding the fun that they have in shooting the show, the reactions and comments they have received from the Navy, and what is in store for the world and the USS Nathan James for the rest of the second season. WARNING: This article may contain spoilers for “The Last Ship” Season 1 and 2. Read on to learn more about this story.
Viewers and fans of “The Last Ship”, who sit literally at the edge of their seats every episode, every week now have a reason to get more excited and will have a reason to wonder excitedly what will happen next to the crew of the Nathan James. Entertainment Weekly managed to get some inside scoop on what happens behind the scenes, and on what will happen in the upcoming episodes of the second season, thanks to an exclusive interview that Entertainment Weekly had with some of the show’s stars and the show’s executive producer, which was released in video format on Spoiler TV, and in an article that was posted on the website of Entertainment Weekly.
According to the live interview that was conducted with some of the show stars Marissa Neitling (Lieutenant Kara Foster), Rhona Mitra (Dr. Rachel Scott), Eric Dane (Captain Tom Chandler), Travis Van Winkle (Lieutenant Danny Green), Adam Baldwin (Executive Officer Mike Slattery), and Lieutenant Carlton Burk (Jocko Sims), and that was posted on Spoiler TV, the show has the approval of the Secretary of the Navy himself.
Eric Dane told Entertainment Weekly that they praised the fact that the show had got everything- from the ranks, to the commands, and to everything they had done on board the USS Nathan James, accurately correct.
Upon being asked about the new villains for the second season, executive producer Hank Steinberg mentioned that this group of “Immunes,” or people who are immune to the virus is a very different kind of villain. According to him, he wanted to show what really happens when there is total anarchy and no leader or figure of authority to unite a nation. According to the interview that was posted on Entertainment Weekly’s official website, Steinberg made reference to the American Civil War, as the Immunes are almost like a whole faction of their own. It was also teased that uniting these factions together will be a “recurring theme” for this season.
With regards to the leader of the Immunes, Steinberg said that this leader will be a formidable and very powerful cult leader, with great weapons, as was seen in the previous episode, “Solace,” which aired last July 5, 2015.
With regards to romance on the ship, which normally is forbidden in normal cases, Marissa Neitling, in the live interview, mentioned how Chandler was very generous in bending the rules, as Kara even got a promotion. With regards to any chance of wedding bells for Green and Foster, it was teased on the article that they might get a chance to do this, but in a very unexpected way.
It was also teased in both interviews that just as every episode ends with a cliffhanger, that the season finale will be ending with one of the biggest cliffhangers the show has had to date.
