black sails 1

We’ve been waiting for a great Pirate series for a long time, and Michael Bay’s Black sails surely looks like it can fill the void. The first trailer was released we can be sure that it will be filled with sea battles, pirates, explosions, treason and just about everything that goes hand in hand with pirates. Just the way we like it! Black Sails already has it’s second season approved, which is quite the achievement seeing as season one only kicks off in January 2014.

The 8 episode first season follows Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and his men two years before the story of  Treasure Island takes place. Described as a brilliant and feared pirate captain, Flint takes on a fast-talking addition to his crew, John Silver (Luke Arnold). They fight for the survival of New Providence Island, an infamous criminal haven teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by ideals and brutality.

Here’s the trailer:

Black Sails had a pretty impressive presence at this years Comic Con, and gave a full cast interview on what we can expect come January 2014.
