Looks like we’re going to be staying on board the Walrus and docked at Nassau Island for quite some time.

Starz has officially renewed Emmy-winning show Black Sails for a third season!

Even though the show seemed pretty much in the clear for a renewal for not just a third but multiple seasons as well, after it was mentioned that Starz CEO Chris Albrecht was in love with the show and wanted more…this news is still fantastic for us, Sailors! (I’m calling that our fandom name, okay!)

The managing director of Starz, Carmi Ziotnik, had this to say about the upcoming second season and the future of the show:

“The incredible world that Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine have created continues to unfold in season two. Flint’s journey is riveting, and around him, Jon and Robert have woven an intricate web of conflict, betrayal, and redemption for the other characters that we believe will keep fans of the show coming back for more. We think that season three will bring even more of the drama and lore that has made it a hit both in the U.S. and internationally.”

And a hit it was! During its first season alone, it garnered roughly 5.3 million views per episode, and it’s shown in 130 countries/territories worldwide.

Captain Flint, Eleanor Guthrie, John Silver, and co. will return to our television screens for the second season on January 24th, 2015 at 9pm/8c.

Starz has also released (in addition to the lovely news of the official 3rd season) a full length trailer of the second season, which can be viewed below.

Can we all just look for that “blink and you’ll miss it” clip of Anne and Max together at 1:22?! And I was kinda holding out for Eleanor and Max to occur again! It appears that won’t happen, since she’s seen kissing Captain Vane at 1:24. *sigh*

In the meantime, I will be sitting here trying to come up with more pirate related puns to include in these articles/future recaps.

Comment below your thoughts on the third season renewal, OR if you have some pirate jokes to share, that works, too. 🙂
