On Monday (March 10), in addition to setting the summer premiere dates for "Falling Skies" Season 4 and the new series "The Last Ship" and "Legends," TNT also debuted new trailers for the series before each show's panel at the SXSW festival in Austin.

New series "The Last Ship" premieres on Sunday, June 22, at 9 p.m. ET. From executive producer Michael Bay, the series stars "Grey's Anatomy" alum Eric Dane and is about a Navy vessel that may be humanity's last hope in the wake of a worldwide catastrophe. Watch a trailer below:



Season 4 of "Falling Skies," from executive producer Steven Spielberg and starring Noah Wyle, will then follow "The Last Ship" and premiere at 10 p.m. ET. As the war between the invading alien force and the humans and alien allies heats up, a new mysterious player enters the fray and could hold the key to victory for either side. Watch a trailer below:



Then in August, new drama "Legends" premieres Wednesday, Aug. 20, at 9 p.m. ET. This new series from "Homeland" executive producers Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary stars Sean Bean ("Game of Thrones") as a deep-undercover FBI agent who may be losing his grip on reality.



New seasons of "Major Crimes," "Rizzoli & Isles," "Perception" and "Franklin & Bash" as well as new episodes of "Dallas" will also air during summer, but premiere dates will announced at a later date.
