LOS ANGELES, July 31 (UPI) -- TNT announced Sunday it has ordered a 13-episode, fourth season of The Last Ship, based on William Brinkley's best-selling novel.
The next batch of episodes is to air next summer.
Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin and Bridget Regan star in the series' third season, along with Charles Parnell, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling, Christina Elmore, Jocko Sims, Bren Foster and Kevin Michael Martin.
The show "chronicles a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world's population," a synopsis said.
"Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoided falling victim to the devastating tragedy. But now, CO Captain Tom Chandler and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors."
