TNT renews three drama series, including “Falling Skies.”

In addition, freshman drama series “The Last Call” has been picked up for second season of 13 episodes. And “Major Crimes” has been renewed for a fourth season of 15 episodes.

Meanwhile, the sci-fi, series “Falling Skies,” has been renewed for a fifth and final season of ten episodes.

“TNT’s refreshed and recharged drama brand is soaring this summer, and that is due in large part to these three enormously popular dramas,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT. “”The Last Ship” has become this summer’s top drama among key adult demos with its epic scale and visceral storytelling. “Major Crimes” continues to be one of the most enduring and popular crime-drama franchises on television. And “Falling Skies” has begun an ambitious and thrilling story arc this summer as it sets the stage for next year’s climactic final season.”
