Our Flag Means Death will set sail for a second season. HBO Max announced the season renewal of the critically acclaimed comedy series.
Our Flag Means Death is loosely based on the true adventures of 18th century would-be pirate Stede Bonnet, played by Rhys Darby, who trades in the life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling pirate. Stede’s fortunes change after a run-in with Captain Blackbeard (Taiki Waititi), and their friendship becomes romantic on the high seas.
“We are so happy to bring this truly one-of-a-kind series back! We congratulate David, Taika, Rhys and the entire talented cast and crew, and thank the show’s fans for embracing it wholeheartedly,” shared Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max, in a statement.
Series creator David Jenkins added, “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.”
The show is executive produced by Academy Award-winner Waititi, alongside creator-showrunner Jenkins, Garrett Basch and Dan Halsted.
