TNT Renews 'The Last Ship'; Orders Pilot for Drama 'Monsters of God'; Sets 'Good Behavior' & 'The Librarians' Premiere Dates

During the network's presentation at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, TNT renewed its original drama series The Last Ship for a fourth season, ordered a pilot for the Rod Lurie-created drama Monsters of God and set premiere dates for The Librarians and Good Behavior.

Based on William Brinkley's novel, The Last Ship centers on the crew aboard a Navy destroyer that become some of the world's lone survivors after a global catastrophe. The 13-episode fourth season will premiere in Summer 2017.

In its third season, the drama stars Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin, Charles Parnell, Travis Van Winkle, Marissa Neitling, Christina Elmore, John Pyper-Ferguson, Jocko Sims, Kevin Michael Martin, Bren Foster, Bridget Regan and LaMonica Garrett.

Executive producers are Hank Steinberg, Steven Kane, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Paul Holahan and Michael Katleman. TNT Original Productions and Platinum Dunes produce.

Written and to be directed by Rod Lurie, Monsters of God centers on Colonel "Terrible" Bill Lancaster's battle against the Comanche in post-Civil War Texas. Despite the peaceful co-existence between the Comanche and local residents of Slater, Lancaster begins a quest to kill every single member of the tribe and chaos ensues. Meanwhile, his wife is equally determined to institute her wildly feminist ideals, even if it means challenging the United States Army and striking her own allegiance with the Comanche women.

Lurie will executive produce the pilot with Marc Frydman, DeDe Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner and Sarah Esberg. Battle Plan Productions and Plan B Entertainment will produce.

The Librarians will return for its third season on Sunday, November 20 at 8/7c. Meanwhile, new drama Good Behavior starring Michelle Dockery will make its series debut on Tuesday, November 15 at 9/8c.
