TNT is making summer plans with the network today announcing airdates for the fourth season premiere of their hit sci-fi series "Falling Skies," as well as premiere dates for their new series "The Last Ship" and "Legends." They've also debuted video previews of all three shows, and you can check them out in the players below!
"For the past three summers, TNT has had great creative and commercial success with 'Falling Skies,' which has inspired us to continue to program for fans of sci-fi and action," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "This year, we're going to launch 'The Last Ship' and 'Legends,' two expertly crafted shows that bring the storytelling scope and thrill-ride excitement of our favorite summer movies to series television. With their great writing, expansive casts and outstanding production quality, these are really fun, smart and addictive shows."
TNT's summer action series will kick off Sunday, June 22, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) with the premiere of "The Last Ship," from executive producer Michael Bay (Transformers
). Eric Dane (Grey's Anatomy
) and Rhona Mitra ("Strike Back") star in the series about a Navy vessel that may be humanity's last hope in the wake of a worldwide catastrophe.
The fourth season premiere of "Falling Skies," from Amblin Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg, will follow "The Last Ship" at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). Noah Wyle stars in the highly rated drama about the struggle against a deadly force of alien invaders.
In August, TNT then premieres the new drama "Legends," from "Homeland" executive producers Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary and Fringe co-executive producer David Wilcox. Set to premiere Wednesday, Aug. 20, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), "Legends" stars Sean Bean ("Game of Thrones," "The Lord of the Rings") as a deep-undercover FBI agent who may be losing his grip on reality.
TNT's summer slate will also include new seasons of the hit series "Major Crimes," "Rizzoli & Isles," "Perception" and "Franklin & Bash"; new episodes of "Dallas"; and the launch of Stephen Bochco's new crime drama "Murder in the First". Premiere dates for those series will be announced later.
