"The Last Ship" will go on a surprising hiatus until Memorial Day. The reason behind the news involved one of the lead cast members who is also notable Hollywood star. Check out the latest updates on Eric Dane's depression battle.

Eric Dane's Battle With Depression

Eric Dane goes on a temporary break from Hollywood as he goes on a journey towards recovery. The actor is now working on his personal issues, including his ongoing battle with depression. His team told Variety that he personally made the special request to the producers.

Dane remained positive that he will indeed return to the show. However, this is not the first time that people heard about Eric Dane's depression battle.

The actor previously revealed about his painkiller addiction in 2011. This led him to volunteer in checking himself at a rehabilitation center for a 30-day treatment. During that time, he played the role of Dr. Mark "McSteamy" Sloan on "Grey's Anatomy."

Twitter user, cheryltunts said that she can relate to Dane. She added, "Lots of respect for Eric Dane admitting that he's on hiatus for depression. I've def made up excuses for missing work bc of depression."
Meanwhile, Twitter user Britt Rivera pointed on the importance of how Eric Dane and the crew dealt with his depression. She praised the actor and the show.

How To Deal With Depression, The Natural And Non-Drug Way

Having a strong support team behind you is indeed the key to winning against mental illness. However, without pushing yourself to get better might pose a problem too. Here are some of the natural and drug-free tips that you should consider when you are battling with depression.

According to WebMD, slowly getting back on your usual routine will help. Dr. Ian Cook from UCLA told that there is no need to rush things immediately. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help in getting back control of your body.

Try doing some exercises and making healthy meals as well. These methods will give you more endorphins and avoid you from overeating. Cook added that challenging yourself will have its own good effects on your entire well-being.

According to him, this will result in several changes to the brain's activity. He continued, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning."

"The Last Ship" Season 4 Updates

"The Last Ship" starring Eric Dane is currently working on a back-to-back production for both season 4 and 5. Prior to the big reveal, the show just got back from a two-week break during spring.

The new development might prolong the filming schedule but it won't actually affect the fate of the sci-fi action series. TNT previously renewed the series for two more seasons due to its high ratings and strong following. "The Last Ship" Season 4 will premiere next year as part of the Summer 2018 TV schedule.
