Starz released a first look trailer and new key art for the highly anticipated third season of the addictive drama set on the high seas, Black Sails. The action-packed pirate adventure stars Toby Stephens as Captain Flint and is created by Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine with Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form serving as executive producers as well as Chris Symes and Dan Shotz.
The ten-episode third season of the authentic high seas drama, returning in 2016, follows the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.” Ray Stevenson (‘Rome,” Insurgent, Divergent) joins the cast as the iconic pirate ‘Blackbeard.’
In the wake of the burning of Charles Town, all the New World lives in fear of Captain Flint. But when his campaign of terror crosses over into madness, it falls to John Silver to locate the man within the monster before it’s too late. Meanwhile, with Eleanor Guthrie in prison, Jack Rackham oversees a new Nassau, hoping to secure his legacy as a king among thieves. All will be tested when a new threat arrives, one the pirates could never have anticipated. It knows them. It understands them. And in the blink of an eye, it will turn them against each other.
