TNT just canceled another drama. Earlier this week, the cable network announced that Franklin and Bash won’t return for a fifth season. On Thursday, TNT announced that Perception is being kicked off the network, too.

The Last Ship, the law-and-justice drama Major Crimes and the sci-fi thriller Falling Skies are all officially coming back for another season, though it will be the last trip for one of them.

Summer has always been the season for Hollywood to bring out its biggest spectacles, giving audiences larger-than-life experiences that can’t be replicated anywhere else. And that’s exactly what TNT has done with The Last Ship, bringing the tentpole action movie to the small screen, and sacrificing nothing by doing so.
The show follows those aboard the USS Nathan James, a US Navy warship that was at sea while a pandemic of mysterious origins laid waste to a giant percentage of the world’s population. On board the vessel are Commander Tom Chandler (Dane), scientist Rhona Mitra (Rachel Scott), second-in-command Mike Slattery (Adam Baldwin) and a whole bunch of other faces we’ll presumably get to know better along the way
Though Dane started his career in bit roles on sitcoms like Saved by the Bell and Roseanne, he quickly shifted into more dramatic fare, with roles on series like Gideon’s Crossing, where he also played a doctor, and Charmed. His film career also started to take off, appearing as Multiple Man in Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand, the same year he wrapped the stethoscope around his neck as Dr. Sloan.
As we head into the summer season, we're slowly approaching the premiere of Legends, a new crime drama that will put Sean Bean back in the small screen in a starring role. As the new trailer indicates, the truth is up for grabs, but not nearly as easy to grasp as say, a gun.
Arriving tomorrow night on TNT is Murder in the First, the latest series from Steven Bochco, the man behind NYBD Blue, Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and the TNT legal drama Raising the Bar. Also Cop Rock, it's worth noting, but they can't all be winners, right?
