Set up as a twenty-year prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic book Treasure Island, Black Sails will follow the adventures of cutthroat Captain Flint and his crew of brutal buccaneers, whose ways have led them to the brink of extinction. Flint is forced to seek sanctuary on the pirate paradise New Providence Island, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and stunning brutality.
Starz announced today that the upcoming fourth season of Black Sailswill be its last. The adventure drama, which was renewed for Season 4 back in 2015, is set to return with its final 10 episodes in 2017.
Black Sails will end as the first Starz original series to reach four seasons. The show has averaged a healthy 3.6 million viewers across multiple platforms through its first three years on the air, and also picked up two Emmy Awards in 2014 for Outstanding Special and Visual Effects in a Supporting Role as well as Outstanding Sound Editing.
