Starz has released the key art for the second season of their pirate drama Black Sails, which is set to premiere on Saturday January 24th at 9/8c.
Created by Jonathan Steinberg, Black Sails is set 20 years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel Treasure Island and tells the story of Captain Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, and his men. The drama series, which set a record for Starz with a debut audience of 5.3 million viewers per episode, is produced by Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes and stars Toby Stephens, Luke Arnold, Zach McGowan, Toby Schmitz, Hannah New, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Mark Ryan, Clara Paget and Tom Hopper.
The show’s extended 10 episode second season picks up immediately from the season one finale which saw The Walrus crew stranded, with an army of Spanish soldiers standing between them and the precious Urca gold. With their crimes against their brethren no longer a secret, Flint and Silver must join forces in a desperate bid for survival. Meanwhile, Eleanor Guthrie struggles to maintain her grip on Nassau, as a new breed of pirate arrives. As blood is spilled, and tensions mount, Charles Vane must decide which he values more: Eleanor’s life, or the respect of his men.
