TNT Orders Fifth and Final Season of ‘Falling Skies;’ Renews ‘The Last Ship’ and ‘Major Crimes’

Falling Skies Season 4 Episode 1 Ghost In The Machine (1)

After five seasons, the alien invasion will come to an end on Falling Skies.

TNT announced the Noah Wyle-led series has been renewed for a fifth and final season set to consist of 10 episodes. The final episodes will wrap up the ongoing arc that is being set in motion in season four, which currently airs Sundays at 10PM. Additionally, TNT also ordered a 13-episode, second season of The Last Ship, and 10 more episodes of Major Crimes season four. All three series have helped to boost TNT to the number one spot amongst cable channels this summer.

“TNT’s refreshed and recharged drama brand is soaring this summer, and that is due in large part to these three enormously popular dramas,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “The Last Ship has become this summer’s top drama among key adult demos with its epic scale and visceral storytelling. Major Crimes continues to be one of the most enduring and popular crime-drama franchises on television. And Falling Skies has begun an ambitious and thrilling story arc this summer as it sets the stage for next year’s climactic final season.”

All three series are expected to premiere new episodes in 2015.
