TNT has already picked up a fourth season of “The Last Ship.” Thursday the cable channel doubled down on that renewal.

The series, which wraps up Season 3 on Sunday, has been extended through a fifth season. The next two seasons will run for 10 episodes each, with Season 5 set for 2018.

“‘The Last Ship’ has taken viewers on an exciting ride through three truly thrilling seasons,” Sarah Aubrey, head of original programming for TNT, says in a statement. “We look forward to watching the cast and production team ratchet up the drama, action and suspense even more over the next two seasons through summer 2018.”

The series stars Eric Dane as captain of a Navy ship that was at sea when a global catastrophe strikes, leaving its crew among the few survivors on Earth. The current season averages a 0.5 same-day rating in adults 18-49 and 2.22 million viewers, typically rising to a 0.9 and 3 million-plus with delayed viewing. TNT says the show’s multi-platform audience is 7.1 million.
