The Last Ship will be charting a course well into the future.

TNT announced on Thursday that it has extended its renewal of the post-apocalyptic drama to include a fifth season. The show, which offers up its season 3 finale on Sunday, was picked up for a fourth season back in July. While the second and third seasons contained 13 episodes, the fourth and fifth seasons each will have 10 episodes.

Starring Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin, and Bridget Regan, the series follows the adventures of the USS Nathan James as the crew tries to find a cure for the virus that has killed most of the world’s population.
