TNT Set New Premiere Date for The Last Ship in Wake of Orlando Tragedy

Season 3 will now premiere this Sunday, June 19 at 9/8c. After delaying the Season 3 debut of The Last Ship due to the shooting in Orlando, TNT has set a new premiere date for the post-apocalyptic drama.

TNT made the decision to postpone the premiere because it contained a scene of a nightclub shooting, which rang too close to the shooting at an Orlando nightclub that took 49 lives.

TNT postpones The Last Ship premiere after Orlando mass shooting.

Due to The Last Ship‘s Season 3 premiere running two hours because of back-to-back episodes, the season premiere of Murder in the First, which was originally scheduled to air on June 19, will now be pushed to Sunday, June 26th at 10/9c.
