The Last Ship is an American post-apocalyptic fiction-action-drama television series, based on the 1988 novel of the same name by William Brinkley. In May 2013, the cable network TNT placed a 10-episode order for the series. The series premiered on June 22, 2014. Two years later it’s into a third season.
The Last Ship is about a deady virus that wipes most of the human population of the planet, except those who are immune. It spreads both through the air and by contact, and a global pandemic is a reality.
The crew onboard the last American ship, the US Navy Destroyer Nathan James, which has been on an exercise in the Arctics for 6 months and ordered to no contact or radio contact with the outside world as part of the exercise, suddely discover that here is no USA to go home to anymore. It has collapsed, aswell as the rest of the world.
But onboard the ship is the world’s last hope of finding a cure, Dr. Rachel Scott, a paleomicrobiologist who knew about the virus and is trying to create a cure for it.
The story is great, the actors are great, this is good entertainment. Meanhile it also depicts how the world would react in case of such an enormous catastrophe, which is realistic, scary and highly possible: mayhem, anarchy, violence and greed, as always when governments collapsing.
In July 2015, Entertainment Weekly's Ray Rahman said of the second season, "The story is getting more interesting as we get an on-the-ground sense of how the pandemic-ravaged US has fared.
The season 3 premiere was postponed following the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting because the episode also included a mass shooting in a nightclub.
