First look teaser image for Black Sails season two, Saturday, January 24 at 9/8c on Starz
Starz announced that its Emmy-winning Original series “Black Sails,” is ready to set sail for season two Saturday, January 24. The ten-episode second season of the authentic high sails drama series follows the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and his men, and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.”
The drama series set a viewership record of an average of 5.3 million viewers per episode during its season one launch. “Black Sails” season two first teaser art keeps its dark tone like last season but this time it has a flash of red, a red flag out of reach from the two pirates.
Season two summary:
Season two begins where we left off—The Walrus crew is stranded, with an army of Spanish soldiers standing between them and the precious Urca gold. And with their crimes against their brethren no longer a secret, Flint (Toby Stephens) and Silver (Luke Arnold) must join forces in a desperate bid for survival. Meanwhile, Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New) struggles to maintain her grip on Nassau, as a new breed of pirate arrives in the form of Ned Low (Tadgh Murphy), a man for whom violence isn’t just a tool … it’s a pastime. As blood is spilled, and tensions mount, Charles Vane (Zach McGowan) must decide which he values more: Eleanor’s life, or the respect of his men. And unbeknownst to all of them, a prize of immeasurable value has already been smuggled onto the island … one whose discovery will alter the very landscape of their world, and force everyone in Nassau toward the ultimate judgment: are they men, or are they monsters?
Executive produced by Michael Bay (Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor) and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, producers on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Purge, and created by executive producers Jonathan Steinberg (“Jericho,” “Human Target”) and Robert Levine (“Touch”),
