Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

“The Last Ship” will air its last season this summer.

The TNT drama led by Eric Dane will end with its upcoming fifth and final season, Turner chief Kevin Reilly told reporters during the network’s 2018-19 upfront presentation to advertisers in New York City Wednesday.

“The Last Ship” centers around the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James as its captain Tom Chandler (Dane) and crew navigate life following a global catastrophe that nearly kills off the world’s population. The cast also includes Adam Baldwin, Bridget Regan, Charles Parnell, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling, Christina Elmore, Jocko Sims, Bren Foster, and Kevin Michael Martin. The series is based on William Brinkley’s novel.

The series was renewed for a fourth season in July 2016, followed by a Season 5 renewal that September. Both of those installments were 10-episodes and shot back-to-back.

TheWrap heard Reilly reveal the news when he was asked by a reporter if this upcoming installment would be the series’ last. “Yea I think we’ve announced that haven’t we,” he said. When the journalist told him the network hadn’t yet confirmed the news, Reilly added, “Oh, well now we did.”

“The Last Ship” hails from Turner-owned Studio T in association with executive producers Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form’s Platinum Dunes banner. Co-creators Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane also executive produce, along with director Paul Holahan. Kane and Steinberg served as the series’ co-showrunners for the first three seasons, with the former running the ship for the last two by himself.

The 7 ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season Finales That Left Us Most Emotionally Scarred (Photos)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Even though practically every Grey’s Anatomy season finale is dramatic as hell, not all of them left us curled up in a ball and a complete emotional wreck.

Here are the 7 that left us just completely shook.

Season 2 “Losing My Religion”

We’re still crying just thinking about this episode.

This is the season where Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl) falls in love with her patient Denny Duquette (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) who has a heart condition and is basically going to die, but Izzie tries to do everything she can — at times even breaking the rules — to save him.

Well the finale consists of Izzie finally accepting Duquette’s marriage proposal — she leaves his room to go get dressed up in a nice gown, and by the time she comes back, he’s dead.

Season 8 “Flight”

To this day, we’re still scared of flying because of this episode.

Pretty much all the characters we love hop on a small plane that ends up crashing and we’re left with Lexie (Chyler Leigh) dying as Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) holds her hand and tells her he loves her. Oh and also Shepherd is missing with a disfigured hand and Meredith is out trying to find him.

This was literally the most dramatically intense episode ever and we will never forgive Shonda Rhimes for her ruthlessness on Season 8.

Season 6 “Death and All His Friends”

We were all clutching our hearts and trying not to throw things at our TV during the Season 6 finale — the one with the crazed gunman on the loose literally shooting whomever, whenever on site.

So besides everyone getting shot (Derek, Reed, Alex, Owen, Charles), Christina Yang (Sandra Oh) has to operate on Derek with a gun to her head and Meredith begging the gunman to shoot her instead. By the way, Meredith was pregnant at the time (she ended up miscarrying).

This episode was just stressful.

Season 5 “Now or Never”

So Izzie ends up having brain surgery to remove a tumor from her brain and meanwhile a John Doe is brought into the hospital — he’s rushed to the ER because he pushed a woman out of the way of an oncoming bus and took the hit himself.

While everyone is operating on John Doe trying to figure out who this hero is, Izzie ends up surviving the surgery but flatlines for a while until she’s brought back to life. Good news, everything’s going well so far.

Just kidding — Meredith finds out that John Doe is actually George O’Malley (T.R. Knight) who ends up dying on the operating table.


Season 3 “Didn’t We Almost Have it All?”

Our person, Christina Yang, gets left at the altar by Dr. Preston Burke. That’s all it took to break our hearts into tiny little sad pieces of despair.

He felt like he was forcing Yang to change and was like “OK, nevermind bye.” Not verbatim, but you get it.

Season 9 “Perfect Storm”

OK, aside from the fact that Meredith Grey had to have a C-section in the freakin’ dark due to a power outage from a hurricane, Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.) tries to restore power to the hospital and ends up face down in a puddle next to the dangerous electrical things.

Ugh. Why Shonda, why?!

Season 1 “Who’s Zoomin Who?

Given the way Season 1 ended, we should’ve known Shonda wasn’t going to let us have any happy endings to “Grey’s Anatomy.”

So by this point, Derek and Meredith are pretty exclusively having sexual relations and all that jazz and not once did the former mention he had a wife so you can expect everyone’s surprise when Addison Shepherd shows up at the end of the episode, greets the two lovebirds and tells Meredith: “Hi, I’m Addison Shepherd. And you must be the woman who’s been screwing my husband?”

What a nice way to meet the wife of the man you’re sleeping with and kind of in love with.
