Our Flag Means Death stole the hearts of millions with its premiere and unexpected story in 2022, and the fanbase has been eager to see when our favorite crew will return to screens for season 2. Thankfully, Max has announced the release window for season 2.
The series, created by David Jenkins, is an adventure romantic-comedy set during the Golden Age of piracy in the early 18th century. Our Flag Means Death follows the misadventures of the Gentleman Pirate, Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby), and his crew on the Revenge as they sail the open seas and attempt to make a name for themselves as pirates. When the eccentric crew crosses paths with the infamous Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard (Taika Waititi), things take a few turns — especially as Stede and Ed find soulmates in one another.
The season 1 ending left fans of the series with plenty of questions we hope to receive answers to in the upcoming season. Where is Blackbeard going and does he make Izzy eat more toes? Can Ed and Stede reunite and be together, or has Ed strayed too far from grace? And good heavens, the most important question of all — is Lucius alive? Only time will tell.
Season 2 of Our Flag Means Death will premiere in October on Max. Our coverage for the series, including interviews with Vico Ortiz and Samba Schutte, can be found here.
