Although many shows have preciously been released with somewhat related plot and synopsis, the movielike thrilling action sequences and the perfect casting of the characters were some of the aspects that distinguish The Last Ship from all those series.
The fifth season of The Last Ship was telecasted on our television screens on 9th September 2018. And it will nearly be three years this year since the show premiered its last episode on 11th November 2018.
TNT announced that The Last Ship season 6 has been canceled even before the release of their fifth season which made the avid fans of the series a little devastated.
Regardless, the fifth season of The Last Ship received solid reception for the network throughout the whole series, although the ratings fluctuated a bit before the airing of their last episode.
The fifth and the final season of The Last Ship was viewed by roughly 1.21 million watchers though the rating of the season only reached 0.22. Compared to the ratings of the fourth season, the poor reception of the fifth season dived down by at least 28%.

The Last Ship takes place in a post-apocalyptic chronicle and follows the story of the crew members of the U.S. Navy ship named the USS Nathan James which is a guided-missile destroyer. The ship is led by their commander, Tom Chandler and soon he and his crew are forced to realize that they are the only chance to restore and save humanity after a global pandemic ends up killing 80% of the world's population.
The crew soon sails out on the seas to search for the resources to create the cure that will end the virus for good. At the same time, however, they have to steer clear of the people who are infected with the deadly virus.
