Eric Dane (Grey's Anatomy) stars as Captain Tom Chandler, who leads the crew of the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James through a global catastrophe that has threatened the world's population. The show also stars Adam Baldwin (Firefly), Bridget Regan (Agent Carter), Charles Parnell (Pariah), Travis Van Winkle (Heart of Dixie), Marissa Neitling (Leverage), Christina Elmore (Fruitvale Station), Jocko Sims (Masters of Sex), Bren Foster (Days of Our Lives), Kevin Michael Martin, Emerson Brooks (Captain America: Winter Soldier), and Jodie Turner-Smith (Newness).
Based on a novel by William Brinkley, the approaching fifth season was shot back to back with the show's fourth. In the upcoming final season, the world is finally recovering from the deadly virus that devastated the population, but global political unrest remains. Chandler has retired and his former crew has scattered, many having risen in the ranks within the Navy. Sasha Cooper (Regan), Lieutenant Danny Green (Van Winkle), SCPO Wolf Taylor (Foster), and Sergeant Azima Kandie (Turner-Smith) are on a covert mission in Panama. When they are wrongly blamed for an attack on the Panamanian president, the consequences for the U.S. are dire. The Nathan James must fight to prevent invasion by Latin America — and the next world war.
