TNT drama “The Last Ship,” which was scheduled to open season three on Sunday, June 19, is now on a temporary hold due to the tragedy in Orlando. The season premiere episode begins with the sound of a gunshot and features attackers opening fire in a nightclub full of people dancing. “Our hearts are with the victims and their families,” said the network in a statement.
There is no announcement on the new return date.
The Austin Television Festival, meanwhile, was scheduled to hold a panel on television violence that same day, but canceled it once the news about Orlando broke.
“Out of respect for the victims of the tragedy in Orlando last night, we won’t be holding the Viewer Discretion Advised panel today,” the festival announced on Twitter. “While it is a very important conversation to have, today does not feel like the time to have it.”
