Starz has announced that its Emmy-winning original series “Black Sails” is officially set to return to the network with a ten-episode second season starting January 24th 2015. They’ve also released an official synopsis:
“Season two begins where we things off – The Walrus crew is stranded, with an army of Spanish soldiers standing between them and the precious Urca gold. With their crimes against their brethren no longer a secret, Flint (Toby Stephens) and Silver (Luke Arnold) must join forces in a desperate bid for survival.
Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New) struggles to maintain her grip on Nassau, as a new breed of pirate arrives in the form of Ned Low (Tadgh Murphy), a man for whom violence isn’t just a tool… it’s a pastime.
As blood is spilled, and tensions mount, Charles Vane (Zach McGowan) must decide which he values more: Eleanor’s life, or the respect of his men. And unbeknownst to all of them, a prize of immeasurable value has already been smuggled onto the island… one whose discovery will alter the very landscape of their world.
The first season set a STARZ viewership record for a debuting original series on the network. The show then established an average of 5.3 million viewers per episode.
