TNT Sets Premiere Dates for 'The Last Ship,' 'Falling Skies' and 'Legends'




As new pilots continue to round out their casts, it’s also time again to fill out your calendars. TNT has announced the summer premiere dates for three of its shows, two of which are series debuts.

First up on the docket is ‘The Last Ship,’ a military, post-apocalyptic thriller starring Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra and Adam Baldwin. The drama will bow on Sunday, June 22, at 9/8c. From Michael Bay (which may mean great or terrible things, depending on your view), the 10-episode series is based on the books by William Brinkley, telling of a global outbreak that destroys most of the world’s population.

Immediately after that premiere, ‘Falling Skies’ returns for its fourth season at 10/9c to round out an evening of sci-fi, action and adventure.

The third and final announcement made by TNT concerns the new series ‘Legends,’ a drama from ‘Homeland’ executive producers Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary, as well as ‘Fringe’ alum David Wilcox. Starring Sean Bean as a deep-undercover FBI agent who assumes different identies, ‘Legends’ will premiere on Wednesday, Aug. 20. Bean’s most recent noteworthy TV role was of course on ‘Game of Thrones.’

No premiere date has been set for the pilot of the forthcoming ‘Murder in the First.’ Additionally, the network has yet to announce return dates for ‘Major Crimes,’ ‘Rizzoli & Isles,’ ‘Perception’ and ‘Franklin & Bash.’

Perception just returned last week... I doubt they'll be announcing season 3 dates anytime soon

Dogtag, Yes first thought as well. Then disregarded because Virus involved an actual viral outbreak. On the beach was a nuclear holocaust.

Actually, my first thought, on reading the synopsis for "The Last Ship" was Stanley Kramer's 1959 movie, "On the Beach," staring Gregory Peck. I believe it was based on a book.

The Last Ship, how is that plot different from Kinji Fukasaku film Virus? Legends, how is that so different from WISEGUY? Jesus can no one do original work anymore?
