The Last Ship
In honor of The Last Ship‘s second season – which is currently airing Sundays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) and available across all of TNT’s on-demand platforms – the network is giving fans at Comic-Con the chance to dive into the show through The Last Ship Oculus Rift Experience. As part of this immersive activation, each participant will use an Oculus Rift headset to be transported into The Last Ship‘s fictional universe, where they must board a cargo ship taken over by the Immunes (immune survivors of the deadly plague that has nearly destroyed the entire population of the planet) and retrieve the last remnants of the primordial strain.
Also at Comic-Con, TNT will present a panel featuring The Last Ship stars Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle, Jocko Sims and Marissa Neitling, as well as series executive producer Hank Steinberg. The session will include Q&A from the audience and exclusive video clips previewing what’s to come during the rest of the second season.
