Our Flag Means Death is one of the most delightful new shows to premiere on Max last year, and its second season is just around the corner. The first teaser trailer for Season 2 is here and it sees our favorite pirates Blackbeard and Stede Bonnet reuniting for another epic adventure.
According to its official synopsis, this series is very loosely based on the true adventures of 18th-century would-be pirate Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby). He traded his seemingly charmed life as a gentleman to become captain of the pirate ship Revenge and struggled to gain the respect of his potentially mutinous crew.
Stede’s luck finally changes after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard (Taika Waititi), and they end up finding much more than friendship on the high seas.
In addition to Darby and Waititi, who serves as one of the show’s executive producers, the series also stars Samson Kayo, Vico Ortiz, Ewen Bremner, Joel Fry, Matthew Maher, Kristian Nairn, Con O’Neill, David Fane, Samba Schutte, Nat Faxon, and Leslie Jones.
Our Flag Means Death will return for its second season on October 5. Following the three-episode premiere, the remaining five episodes will stream weekly on Max.
