The conclusion left everyone wondering if the sixth season would ever be released as it ended on a very positive note. In this article, we will find out where the sixth season of The Last Ship will come out and other details regarding the same.
A Peek Into The Storyline
It is the pandemic period and the disease has affected more than 80% of the global population. Some important personalities to have been affected are Presidents and Vice Presidents of different countries. This is not the highlight for the current COVID-19 pandemic but a storyline of a fictional series.
A crew of sailors sets out on a warship to conduct scientific research in the Arctic. They are given clear instructions to collect the facts, conduct research, and return to the base safely. The plot takes a twist when the sailors find out that their mission is to find a cure and not to conduct scientific research. The cure is believed to solve the problem of the pandemic that is prevailing at a global level.
The story gets interesting when more regions set out on an adventure to find the cure and attack anyone who gets in their way, including the sailors who were originally sent on the mission.
The warship had 218 sailors on board. The two main characters of the series were Commander and Dr. Rachel Scott who was played by Eric Dane and Rhona Mitra, respectively.
Commander leads the warship, USS Nathan James, from the front. He becomes the center of the series the moment he takes a call to support Dr. Rachel Scott in her quest to find the cure to the pandemic.
Dr. Rachel Scott is a paleo microbiologist. She initially hides the fact that she is on a mission to find the cure. Her secret comes out when Commander sees her working in the Arctic and a few war airlines arrive at the location to attack her.
