New TV shows are hitting the market this month, but there’s one TV series that’s been getting a lot of attention: “The Last Ship.”
It was a big hit on Netflix and HBO in 2017, and the streaming service has announced that it’s adding the series to its upcoming lineup.
The series, set to premiere on June 8, was written and produced by David Milch and stars Mark Harmon as an ex-marine who returns to his family ship after a war with the aliens.
The pilot episode has been watched over a million times on Netflix, and it’s currently ranked at #1 on Hulu.
According to Netflix, the series is the first original series produced on the service, and Netflix execs have told BuzzFeed News that the new series will be available on other platforms as well.
The show is based on Milch’s own book of the same name.
It follows the story of two ex-Marine officers who discover a crashed alien ship and begin to search for answers about the mysterious alien invasion.
The series is being produced by Milch himself.
“The Second Coming,” an adaptation of the novel that focuses on the crew of the USS Arizona, has also been picked up for the streaming platform.
The new series is a new addition to Netflix’s original series lineup, but the company said that it will also continue to offer original programming.
“As we have been growing our original programming, we have always looked to new original series to help us reach a new audience, including this year’s ‘The Last Show’ and the upcoming ‘The Second Show,'” Netflix said in a statement.
