‘Our Flag Means Death’ Sails Into A Second Season At HBO Max


The pirate comedy ‘Our Flag Means Death’ is getting a second season at HBO Max after a critically successful first season of ten episodes. Series creator David Jenkins serves as the showrunner and executive producer. ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ director Taika Waititi is also an executive producer and stars in the show as the dread pirate Blackbeard.

“We felt the show was special while we were making it, but fans’ open-armed embrace of the inhabitants of the Revenge makes heading into a second season all the more sweet. Thanks to our team at HBO Max, our invested executive producers, and our wildly enthusiastic audience for making another voyage to this world possible,” Jenkins said in a press release.


The show follows actor Rhys Darby as Stede Bonnet, a former aristocrat who decides to live the pirate life on board the ship Revenge. He finds friendship with Blackbeard, and later something more. Critics have praised the show for its humor, making it certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

HBO describes the plot synopsis as follows,


“Season one was (very) loosely based on the true adventures of 18th century would-be pirate Stede Bonnet, played by Rhys Darby. After trading in the seemingly charmed life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling buccaneer, Stede became captain of the pirate ship Revenge. Struggling to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew, Stede’s fortunes changed after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard, played by Waititi. To their surprise, the wildly different Stede and Blackbeard found more than friendship on the high seas… they found love. Now they have to survive it.”

The show also stars Nathan Foad, Samson Kayo, Vico Ortiz, Ewen Bremner, Joel Fry, Matt Maher, Kristian Nairn, Con O’Neill, Guz Khan, David Fane, Rory Kinnear, Samba Schutte, Nat Faxon, Fred Armisen, and Leslie Jones.
