Season 3 opens in the wake of the destruction of Charles Town, where the world lives in fear of Captain Flint. When his campaign of terror crosses over into madness, it falls to John Silver to locate the man within the monster.
Meanwhile, with Eleanor Guthrie gone, Jack Rackham and Captain Charles Vane struggle to secure Nassau for the ages.
The 10-episode third season of the authentic high seas drama follows the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), and takes place 20 years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Treasure Island.
Ray Stevenson (Rome, Insurgent, Divergent) joins the cast as the iconic pirate Blackbeard, and Luke Roberts (Wolf Hall, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins as historic figure Woodes Rogers.
In Season 3, all are tested when a new threat arrives in Nassau, one the pirates could never have anticipated. It knows them. It understands them. And in the blink of an eye, it will turn them against each other.
Black Sails stars Toby Stephens as the brilliant and unstoppable Captain Flint, Hannah New as Eleanor Guthrie, Luke Arnold as John Silver in the years before his well-known feats and Jessica Parker Kennedy, who plays Max, a former prostitute with an eye towards advancement.
Tom Hopper plays Billy Bones of Treasure Island fame and Zach McGowan is featured as Captain Charles Vane, a rival pirate to Captain Flint.
The series is created by Jonathan E. Steinberg (Jericho, Human Target) and Robert Levine (Touch) and executive produced by Michael Bay (the Transformers franchise, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor), and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Purge), as well as Chris Symes (Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Eragon) and Dan Shotz (Jericho, Harper's Island).
