Watch the Season 2 Teaser for ‘Our Flag Means Death’

3 Min Read

Max has released the teaser trailer for Our Flag Means Death season 2, which is set to premiere on the streamer this October.

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 teaser certainly indicates the stakes have been upped this season with two very different emotional states for the leads — over the video, Stede is verbalizing a letter to Ed in which he describes the many things he loves about him, while Ed is on a rampage in the midst of his heartbreak.

The logline for season 2 reads:

OUR FLAG MEANS DEATH is based (very) loosely on the true adventures of 18th century would-be pirate Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby). After trading the seemingly charmed life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling buccaneer, Stede became captain of the pirate ship Revenge. Struggling to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew, Stede’s fortunes changed after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard (Taika Waititi). To their surprise, the wildly different Stede and Blackbeard found more than friendship on the high seas…they found love. Now, they have to survive it.”

Season 2 of Our Flag Means Death features eight episodes with three a three episode premiere Thursday, October 5. The series then continues with two new episodes weekly leading up to the season finale on Thursday, October 26
