Fans of the hit Starz series learned some news today about the fourth season of the series Black Sails.
Starz announced today that the fourth season of the Emmy®-winning Original series Black Sails will bring fans to the heroic conclusion of the Treasure Island prequel.
The 10-episode fourth season of the stand-out high seas drama returns in 2017, and finds our pirates at war in the West Indies.
The shores of New Providence Island have never been bloodier, but the closer civilization comes to defeat, the more desperately, and destructively, it will fight back.
“Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine, along with their crew and the phenomenal cast, have delivered a spectacular take on the most legendary pirate story in literature, and this final season will bring us to the shores of Treasure Island as was always intended,” said Starz Managing Director Carmi Zlotnik.
“’Black Sails’ has been a tremendous success; from the loyal fan following and strong viewership numbers to awards recognition and the skill of our world-class production in Cape Town, we could not be more proud of this very special series.”
Black Sails takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic, and follows the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint, portrayed by Toby Stephens.
