Grey’s Anatomy’s Eric Dane is back! Okay, not as Mark Sloan, which would’ve been our first choice, but as long as he’s on our TV screens again (preferably shirtless), we can live with it. Eric’s taking on his latest on-screen drama, The Last Ship, and now that a new trailer for the show has been released, we finally get to see him in action!

In the new military drama from TNT, Eric plays Navy Captain Tom Chandler who takes the reigns of a battleship after the world is plagued by an infectious disease that kills much of the population. Um, scary?

Sidenote: Tom Chandler sounds like somebody Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) would definitely be pals with. Is it too early to start thinking about a crossover episode?

Anyway, the new trailer delivers a sampling of all the action and drama we can expect to see from The Last Ship, from the time of the outbreak to where we’ll meet Captain McSteamy — No, wait, Tom — as he fights to save humanity from the rapidly spreading epidemic that could mean the end of the world as we know it.

“Our mission now is simple,” Tom says. “To stay alive until we find a cure.”

Super excited to see the show? Just excited to see Eric Dane in a military uniform? No matter what your motivation is, if you’re ready to see The Last Ship, it premieres Sunday, June 22, at 9 p.m. ET.
