TNT’s The Last Ship has halted production as series lead Eric Dane battles depression.

In a statement released to our sister site Variety, a rep for the Last Ship lead/Grey’s Anatomy alum confirms that he requested “a break to deal with personal issues,” forcing the show to hit pause on production through Memorial Day.

“[Eric] suffers from depression,” the statement continues, “and has asked for a few weeks of downtime, and the producers kindly granted that request. He looks forward to returning.”

The Last Ship, which has already been renewed through Season 5, is currently in the midst of shooting its fourth and fifth seasons back-to-back. Production on Season 4, which is expected to premiere this summer, had already wrapped ahead of the unanticipated hiatus.
