LASTSHIP

Captain Tom Chandler has but one mission: Find a cure; stop the virus; save the world.

  TORONTO (June 11, 2015) – Space’s smash-hit series THE LAST SHIP, from blockbuster producer Michael Bay,  returns with another 13, heart-pounding one-hour episodes when Season 2 debuts with a special, two-hour premiere event Sunday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET. THE LAST SHIP chronicles a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world’s population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoided falling victim to the devastating tragedy. Now, Captain Tom Chandler (Eric Dane, GREY’S ANATOMY) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors. In Season 2, Chandler, his second-in-command XO Mike Slattery (Adam Baldwin, LAW & ORDER), and the rest of the crew are working to disseminate the cure that paleomicrobiologist Dr. Rachel Scott (Rhona Mitra, SHOOTER) developed. Meanwhile, a new threat surfaces. THE LAST SHIP two-hour premiere event encores on CTV2 on Friday, June 26 at 8 p.m. For those who have yet to get on board THE LAST SHIP, Season 1 is currently streaming on CraveTV. ** Media Note ** Download photography for THE LAST SHIP at bellmedia.ca/pr/tv/space/ Season 1 of THE LAST SHIP took audiences by storm as it drew in 405,000 viewers, making it the #1 new series on Space. In its Sundays at 9 p.m. ET timeslot, the average audience in the key A18-49 and A25-54 demos was five times higher compared to the previous year. Throughout its run, the debut season reached a total of 3.6 million viewers. Season 2 kicks off with two, back-to-back episodes “Unreal City” and “Fight The Ship” (Sunday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET).  After the horrifying revelations and reversals of fortune in Baltimore, Chandler and his fractured team join forces with an underground resistance in an attempt to defeat Amy Granderson. With doses of the cure running low, Rachel tries to do some good for the sick while remaining a prisoner at Avocet. Meanwhile, Slattery and the crew of Nathan James are in a race against time to save an injured Dr. Tophet and regain control of their ship.
