TNT has unveiled a new two-minute trailer and poster for the upcoming second season of the blockbuster hit The Last Ship. Fans of the series, which topped the charts as basic cable's #1 new show of 2014, got to see the trailer on the big screen this afternoon at WonderCon Anaheim 2015. They also got to hear about the upcoming season of The Last Ship during a panel discussion with series stars Rhona Mitra (Strike Back) and Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck), Travis Van Winkle (Heart of Dixie), Charles Parnell (Pariah), Christina Elmore (Fruitvale Station), John Pyper Ferguson (Unforgiven) and Jocko Sims(Masters of Sex), along with executive producers Hank Steinberg (creator of Without a Trace, The Nine), Steven Kane (The Closer) and Jack Bender (Lost).
Based on William Brinkley's popular novel, 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. But now, Captain Tom Chandler (series star Eric Dane) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors. The Last Ship is slated to launch its second season on Sunday, June 21, with a two-hour premiere at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

For the first season, the show reached an average of 14.5 million viewers across TNT's linear, on-demand, digital and mobile platforms.
