It's good to be on Starz. The network, famous for renewing shows before anyone even cares if they're renewed, has picked up the high seas adventure drama Black Sails for Season 4, the network announced Friday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. The show's firs two seasons averaged 4.5 million viewers across multiple platforms.
The show, created by Jonathan E. Steinberg (Jericho) and Robert Levine (Touch), stars Toby Stephens as Captain Flint and takes place 20 years prior to the events of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel Treasure Island. The 10-episode Season 3, which sees the addition of Ray Stevenson (Rome) as the iconic pirate Blackbeard, premieres in 2016.
Are you excited to know that there are still at least two more seasons worth of horny pirate shenanigans?
