Fans of Our Flag Means Death are eagerly anticipating the upcoming release of Our Flag Means Death season 2, set to air on HBO Max in the near future. The swashbuckling comedy, which follows the adventures of the gentleman pirate Stede Bonnet, left viewers on the edge of their seats at the end of season 1, with a sense that there was still so much more to be explored.
The 10-episode first season took viewers on a thrilling journey across the seas and left fans eagerly anticipating more. Luckily, HBO Max announced the renewal of Our Flag Means Death for a second season in June 2022. While we await its return, let’s dive into what we know about the upcoming season, including the cast, release date, and story.
When Is Our Flag Means Death Season 2 Coming Out?
HBO Max has officially announced that the second season of the hit series “Our Flag Means Death” will be released in 2023. Creator David Jenkins shared a picture from the set on Twitter, indicating that filming for the season had concluded in December 2022. Fans of the show can look forward to potentially seeing it on the streaming platform as early as the summer of 2023 in the US.
Although the announcement trailer for all of HBO Max’s upcoming shows in 2023 included “Our Flag Means Death,” and Taika Waititi himself confirmed that it is happening soon, there hasn’t been much news about the second season since then. Nonetheless, the series’ avid followers are eagerly awaiting further updates on what’s to come.
What Is The Plot of Our Flag Means Death Season 2?
The first season of “Our Flag Means Death” came to an exciting close as Blackbeard and Stede Bonnet found themselves under arrest and forced into labor for the British Empire. But they didn’t let that hold them down for long. After making plans to escape, Stede was ambushed by the twin of Captain Nigel Badminton, who sought revenge for his brother’s death. Stede fled without a word to Blackbeard, leaving his former captain to wallow in heartbreak and despair.
But Blackbeard couldn’t stay down for long. With the help of former first-mate Izzy, he found his way back to piracy and embraced his mantle as “Blackbeard” once again. In a moment of rage and sorrow, he even threw Lucius, a symbol of unity to the crew, overboard and abandoned the rest of the crew on an island. The once-mighty pirate was brought to his knees, crying in the captain’s quarters that once belonged to his dear friend, Stede.
In the upcoming second season, viewers can expect to see Stede return to piracy in search of Blackbeard and his crew. But even if he can find them, it’s uncertain whether he’ll be able to convince Blackbeard to give up his pirate life and live as “Ed” once again. And even if he succeeds, will the rest of the crew forgive Stede for abandoning them?
Thankfully, not all of Blackbeard’s crew was lost. Frenchie and Jim were spared and brought on board his new crew. Frenchie used his sewing skills to create a new flag, while Jim’s skills proved to be a valuable asset to Blackbeard. As for Lucius, his return as an antagonist is sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats. With all of this excitement in store, Our Flag Means Death season 2 is not to be missed!
