Season 2 begins where we left off - The Walrus crew is stranded, with an army of Spanish soldiers standing between them and the precious Urca gold.
And with their crimes against their brethren no longer a secret, Flint (Toby Stephens) and Silver (Luke Arnold) must join forces in a desperate bid for survival.
Meanwhile, Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New) struggles to maintain her grip on Nassau, as a new breed of pirate arrives in the form of Ned Low (Tadgh Murphy), a man for whom violence isn't just a tool... it's a pastime.
As blood is spilled, and tensions mount, Charles Vane (Zach McGowan) must decide which he values more: Eleanor's life, or the respect of his men.
And unbeknownst to all of them, a prize of immeasurable value has already been smuggled onto the island... one whose discovery will alter the very landscape of their world, and force everyone in Nassau toward the ultimate judgment: are they men, or are they monsters?
Black Sails stars Toby Stephens as the most brilliant and feared pirate captain of his day Captain Flint. Hannah New portrays Eleanor Guthrie, a beautiful and determined young woman who runs the smuggling operation on New Providence.
Luke Arnold portrays the classic character, John Silver, in the years before his well-known feats. Jessica Parker Kennedy is in the role of Max, a young prostitute with an eye towards advancement. Zach McGowan is featured as Captain Charles Vane, a rival pirate captain to the brilliant and feared Captain Flint.
Black Sails is created by executive producers Jonathan E. Steinberg (Jericho, Human Target) and Robert Levine (Touch) and is also 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.
Black Sails 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. Chris Symes and Dan Shotz also serve as executive producers.
