Ahead of its premiere later this month January, Starz has released a new trailer for the second season of the Emmy Award-winning Black Sails, the high seas drama from creators Jonathan E. Steinberg (Human Target) and Robert Levine (Touch) and executive producer Michael Bay (Transformers: Age of Extinction).
The ten-episode second season of the series follows the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), and also features Hannah New (Maleficent), Luke Arnold (Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of Michael Hutchence), Jessica Parker Kennedy (The Secret Circle), Zach McGowan (Shameless) and Tadhg Murphy (Vikings).
1715. The Golden Age of Piracy. New Providence Island is lawless territory, controlled by notorious pirate captains. The most feared—Captain Flint.
Driven by ulterior motives, Flint hunts the ultimate prize. But first he must overcome rival captains, the local smuggling kingpin, and a young sailor new to his crew—John Silver.

Who would’ve thought that a show produced by Platinum Dunes about the ins and outs of the pirate life would be so great? When the Starz show Black Sails was first announced, like many others, the first thought that came to mind for me was “um..nope”. Following that sentiment, the TV series based two decades before the events of Treasure Island quickly faded from my mind, until the good folks at Anchor Bay sent me a copy of the first season to check out. I had a few hours to spare, and popped that baby in, ready to shrug and be impartial to what would play out in front of me…until it happened. The unthinkable happened. I found myself hooked, leading to binge watching the entire 8-episode first season in two days.
