An incredible new trailer has been unveiled to ignite our excitement for the upcoming Season 2 of MAX’s uproarious and absurd pirate comedy series, “Our Flag Means Death.” This much-anticipated season marks the return of the multi-talented producer and actor, Taika Waititi, who mesmerized audiences as the notorious Blackbeard the Pirate in the first season. Alongside him, the incomparable Rhys Darby reprises his role as the endearing Stede Bonnet. The series boasts an ensemble cast with several familiar faces, including 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.
Season 2 of “Our Flag Means Death” unfurls its sails following the dramatic fallout between Stede (Rhys Darby) and Blackbeard (Taika Waititi). The tumultuous separation left Blackbeard feeling deserted, forcing Stede and the resourceful Revenge crew to fend for themselves in uncharted waters. Now, with emotions running high, Stede and Blackbeard must navigate their inner turmoil and rediscover their bond. Yet, the path to reconciliation is strewn with treacherous obstacles, and the duo finds themselves juggling their personal conflicts alongside their pirate responsibilities. Stede remains committed to his aspiration of becoming The Gentleman Pirate, adhering to a code of piracy that emphasizes diplomacy over violence. In contrast, Blackbeard clings to his reputation as a fearsome pirate, unyielding even in the face of adversity.
Series creator David Jenkins has hinted that this chapter of the series will be the second in a trilogy, provided MAX graciously renews the series for another season.
Mark your calendars! “Our Flag Means Death” Season 2 is set to premiere on MAX on Thursday, October 5th, launching with the release of its initial three episodes.
