Beverly Hills, California Starz announced that its Emmy®-winning Original series Black Sails has been green lit for a third season. The series is created by Jonathan Steinberg (Jericho, Human Target) and Robert Levine (Touch) and executive produced by Michael Bay (Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor) and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, producers on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Purge. The ten-episode second season of the authentic high sails drama series, premiering 24 January, 2015 on STARZ, follows the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), and his men and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.”

“The incredible world that Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine have created continues to unfold in season two. Flint’s journey is riveting, and around him, Jon and Robert have woven an intricate web of conflict, betrayal, and redemption for the other characters that we believe will keep fans of the show coming back for more,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz. “We think that season three will bring even more of the drama and lore that has made it a hit both in the U.S. and internationally.”
