Starz has announced that they’ve given an early season two pick up to the Michael Bay produced piracy drama “Black Sails.”
The second season order comes a full six months before the first season of the show even goes to air.
Premiering January 2014, the story is essentially a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.”
The story centers on Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) who takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew, a young man named John Silver (Luke Arnold).
Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day.
