TNT’s ‘The Last Ship’ Season Premiere Postponed After Orlando Shooting

TNT has postponed its previously scheduled season three premiere of “The Last Ship” in the wake of a mass shooting in an Orlando, Fla., nightclub.

“As a result of the shootings this weekend in Orlando, tonight’s originally scheduled season premiere of ‘The Last Ship’ has been postponed,” TNT said in a statement on Sunday. “Our hearts are with the victims and their families.”

The scheduling change is likely due to the fact that the episode reportedly featured a shooting at a Vietnamese nightclub. The Orlando shooting is the deadliest in U.S. history, killing 50 people and injuring 53 more. The shooter was killed in a shootout with police.

“The Last Ship” season three premiere clocks in at two hours. It’s not yet been announced when the episode will air.

TNT’s scheduling change may be the first of several, as the TV world reacts to the mass shooting. The Tony Awards on CBS, while not postponed, is expected to address the shooting on Sunday night. The production has been dedicated to the victims at the shooting at gay nightclub Pulse.

Post-apocalyptic drama “The Last Ship” is executive produced by Michael Bay, and focuses on the aftermath of a pandemic that wiped out 80% of the world’s population.
