‘The Last Ship’ S3 Sets New TNT Premiere After Orlando Shooting
Apart from a world far enough in shock to dismiss any thought of TV, TNT had the good sense to reschedule its third season premiere of naval drama The Last Ship this past Sunday, owing to violent content tragically reminiscent of the Orlando attack. Now, the network has confirmed a new date for the two-hour premiere, moving the debut of Murder in the First as well.
Mid-Sunday saw TNT rightly postponing The Last Ship’s third season debut, which itself features a nightclub gun battle in its earliest scenes. Per the network’s latest announcement, the two-hour premiere will now air this coming Sunday, June 19 at 9:00 P.M., while you can watch the scene in question for yourself below:
Said TNT on Sunday:
As a result of the shootings this weekend in Orlando, tonight’s originally scheduled season premiere of The Last Ship has been postponed. Our hearts are with the victims and their families.
Rescheduling The Last Ship will also move the third season debut of Murder in the First to Sunday, June 26 at 10:00 P.M., immediately following a new The Last Ship episode. The episodic shuffle follows a similar move from USA’s Mr. Robot last year, the finale of which was postponed over one scene’s similarity to the on-air shooting that occurred in Virginia.
You can find a trailer for The Last Ship Season 3 below, and watch the two-hour premiere this coming Sunday.
