Tonight, we will be at the end of the journey for “The Last Ship” on TNT … at least for the time being.
For those who missed the news, season 2 of the Michael Bay-produced show has already been ordered, so there is no reason to worry about tonight’s episode being the metaphorical end of the road. We imagine the question that you will want to ask yourself instead being when the show is coming back. We feel like we have an easy answer for that, as well: Next summer. The performance of the show this year was good enough that there is no real reason for TNT to want to change things up too dramatically. We actually feel like they will be more likely to move the final season of “Falling Skies,” given that they could use this show and its audience more effectively as a lead-in.
As for potential storylines, we imagine that there will be less tension this time surrounding whether or not this crew can function now within this world. We already know that they can, and they will not leave Chandler behind no matter the circumstance. With that, we expect a second season to expand the world of the show somewhat, introduce us to new, interesting characters, and have us wonder if there is a way for the world to ever be restored again. Given that “Falling Skies” has lasted four seasons already without answering every question, we certainly imagine that this show will eventually be doing the same exact thing.
