I have gone on record stating my love for Black Sails. It has evolved into a truly epic drama from a genre that I honestly wasn’t sure was going to be successful. However, over the course of two seasons, Black Sails has emerged as one of my favorite shows on television.
Serving as a preamble of sorts to Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, Black Sails follows the lives of pirates as they evade capture and execution by the British Royal Navy, make a living by stealing from other ships as well as turn a profit on the isle of Nassau, known to be the pirate hub of that day and age. Understand that if you haven’t yet watched this show, I am barely even scratching the surface of what lies ahead of you. You will not be disappointed.
So allow this trailer for the upcoming season three to be an enticement for both those that have experienced this glorious show and those that have not yet jumped on the bandwagon or the ship, depending on whichever reference you like best. With the addition of Blackbeard and the looming all out pirates versus England war, this season looks absolutely incredible!
