Everyone's favorite pirates will soon be back on the water. Hit comedy Our Flag Means Death has been renewed for a second season at HBO Max.
Our Flag Means Death stars Taika Waititi and Rhys Darby as fictional versions of history's real-life pirates Ed Teach, better known as Blackbeard, and Stede Bonnet. Bonnet (Darby) is an English aristocrat turned pirate who is not well-suited for the role and finds himself teaming up with Blackbeard (Waititi). Together the pair finds an unexpected romance that proves to be even more difficult than life on the high seas.
In addition to Darby and Waititi, who also serves as an executive producer, the large ensemble cast includes Nathan Foad, Rory Kinnear, Nat Faxon, Fred Armisen, and Leslie Jones.
The comedy has been a success with critics, but its strong fanbase is perhaps its most valuable asset. In a statement, HBO Max thanked the "wildly enthusiastic audience" for ensuring that the "truly one-of-a-kind series" could set sail again.
