News couldn’t be more welcome after a long hiatus. And not only have TNT made it official, but they have also published some tantalising new details:


A Storm is Brewing as TNT’s Hit Series The Last Ship 
Returns with a Thrilling Two-Hour Premiere on Aug 20

Over the course of the first three seasons, The Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James has been the central vehicle for the discovery and distribution of the cure to the Red Flu, resulting in near global recovery.  After the chilling events at the end of last season, Tom Chandler (Dane) has given up his heroic titles and responsibilities and sought solace – and anonymity — with his family in a small fishing village in Greece. Meanwhile, Captain Slattery (Baldwin) and the crew of Nathan James have discovered that the virus has “jumped kingdoms” and now infects the world’s food crops, bringing humanity to the brink of global famine. As the ship traverses the Mediterranean in search of a solution that can save the world’s food supply, Chandler encounters his own enemies in Greece.  His “hero’s journey” becomes a modern day retelling of Homer’s Odyssey.”
