Fans of Our Flag Mean Death have much to look forward to following a heartbreaking season one ending. That’s right, love is in the air because season two of Our Flag Means Death has been confirmed!
Streaming platform Max revealed that the pirate rom-com and drama is coming back and will set sail on 5 October. The news comes via the first teaser trailer for season two.
The show will drop three episodes during the premiere and will release two episodes weekly after that. The season is expected to wrap up on 26 October after eight episodes.
While details are still under wraps, we do know that the second season of Our Flag Means Death will follow the tumultuous romance between pirates Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby) and Blackbeard (Taika Waititi). Both of them are based on real pirates. As mentioned, season one didn’t end so well so there’s likely drama awaiting in the upcoming season.
The official synopsis reads, “Our Flag Means Death is based (very) loosely on the true adventures of 18th-century would-be pirate Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby). After trading 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 (Taika 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.”
In addition to Darby and Waititi, Samson Kayo, Vico Ortiz, Ewen Bremner, Joel Fry, Matthew Maher, Kristian Nairn, Con O’Neill, David Fane, Samba Schutte, Nat Faxon, and Leslie Jones will be returning. Season two also brings new characters and guest stars in Minnie Driver, Bronson Pinchot, Ruibo Qian, Madeleine Sami, Anapela Polataivao, and Erroll Shand.
