Tv Season Info

The second series of this post-apocalyptic drama finds the crew of the USS Nathan James encountering both old and new obstacles in their plight to save humanity from the deadly virus that has already wiped out much of the world's population. With Amy Granderson (Alfre Woodard) and her soldiers having captured many of the crew members and taken control of the ship, Commander Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) and his remaining men find an unlikely ally in Thorwald (Titus Welliver), a mysterious underground warlord, in their fight to stop Granderson from continuing to massacre innocent people. It is discovered that remnants of other branches of the US Armed Forces still exist, and some characters embark on quests to locate their loved ones. The crew of the USS Nathan James also faces off against a new enemy in the form of a group of people who have united over their common trait of immunity from the fatal disease who attempt to continue spreading the infection in order to rise to power. Meanwhile, Dr Rachel Scott (Rhona Mitra) perseveres in her relentless mission to concoct a vaccination and spread it throughout the world.

Critic Reviews for The Last Ship Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

It's nice to have nuance, but sometimes you just want to watch someone with a crew cut ask in earnest, "What's the status of the RHIBs?"

Niels made my skin crawl.

Jul 31, 2018 | Rating: 4.7/5 | Full Review…

I came away from the Season 2 premiere quite pleasantly surprised, as well as quite entertained.

Jul 31, 2018 | Full Review…

You're not going to find a better example on TV of cinema's quintessential summer blockbuster, and it's more worthy of your time than lots of recent big screen offerings.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

There is enough variation on the theme to keep things interesting here.

Sep 26, 2016 | Full Review…

There's a formula for post-apocalyptic dramas, and, for the most part, The Last Ship is staying on course.

Jun 22, 2015 | Rating: 2.75/3 | Full Review…

The show's picked the correct method to start its latest round of narrative arcs for its first two hours of season two.

Audience Reviews for The Last Ship: Season 2

  • Oct 22, 2015
    Exciting and action-packed, the second season of The Last Ship takes the series to the next level. After returning to port with the cure to the Red Flu the crew of the U.S.S. Nathan James finds the country torn apart by despots and demagogues, and must find a way to bring it back together. It's a daring direction to take the series in, and it allows the show to expand beyond the virus plot line. Also, the actors give some extraordinary performances. And, the battle sequences are incredibly intense and have an authentic feel to them. A riveting adventure, The Last Ship's second season continues to up the stakes and delivers non-stop thrills.

    easily the best season
  • Oct 19, 2019
    Season 2 is even better than the strong first season. Episode after episode, tension non-stop... Wow!

    Superb. the best tv series I've seen. Better than most great movies. Sincere congratulations to everyone who had a hand in making and presenting this series. If you never do anything else, you have done something very very special. You must be very proud. There are a few times when 'suspension of disbelief' is difficult due to silly mistakes in the script: - Just a few: 'Arab' terrorist escapees in Gitmo somehow have ALL their Arab gear ! (So laughable I nearly gave up right there...) Russian naval genius doesn't seem to understand basic obvious tactics. A ship runs out of water and seems to find it hard to obtain enough from seawater (I could do that in my kitchen - after 5 mins thought.) And sailors have been running illicit stills since they built the first boat. AND, You cannot tow and power a 10,000tonne Destroyer with a few parasails and some wind! etc. It's not THAT hard to produce an intelligent script and avoid such mistakes- just get an intelligent couple of people to review it BEFORE you spend all that money! All that said, Thanks for a truly great series. More, Please...

    Feels like I'm watching a recruitment film, low on plot, but plenty of flag waving.
  • Sep 05, 2016
    Love this show so much, story line, characters, villains, action, effects, naval battles, plot twists, etc
  • Aug 31, 2016
    Excellent show! I am not sure why critics don't like this show? This is what happens when you pair one of the best high octane action directors Michael Bay with good writers. Awesome story line and great action packed into each episode. I personally think it is one of the best action shows on cable television.
  • Mar 15, 2016
    A good follow-up to Season 1, and even slightly better than S1. Tighter plot and some good naval action too.
  • Oct 06, 2015
    I enjoyed this - looking forward to the next season.

    I watched the whole season 1 and 2 and love them both. This series is like no other show I've seen on TV. The story was well written, the cast fit into their roles quite smoothly and close to perfect. However I'd recommend that the Captain, TEX and XO take some kick boxing lessons during their Season break before they start filming for Season 3 to add more punch to the action scenes since we'd most likely see them on the front lines during missions. Wolf and Bivas did a great job adding to the ground close quarter combat scenes. But then again, Bivas died. And yeah so many heart breaking moments during the last few episodes of Season 2. But all in all it was perfectly put together. I almost cried while watching a couple of episodes. Maybe a few upgrades should be made to the USS Nathan James (Improved armaments/additional armaments, improved sonar/radar tech etc...) as any other US Naval ship would receive during dry dock period. And since the plot seems to be heading for global missions it wouldn't hurt to add a couple more ships to the Nathan James fleet. Like a Supply and Logistics ship, a WASP class ship and if possible an LCS combat ship. So far so good. To the writers keep up the good work. Just keep it real guys. You'd do a great job with the coming scripts. Looking forward to season 3! :D
