Starz has cancelled Black Sails.
Having renewed the pirate drama for Season 4 last year, the cable network has suddenly announced that its 10-episode fourth season – to premiere in 2017 – will be the last in the series. There wont be a fifth season.
Attempting to control the cancellation narrative, co-creator Jonathan E. Steinbergsaid of the show’s demise:
“It’s a rare privilege in television to be given the kind of creative freedom we’ve enjoyed on this show over the last four years. While it was a difficult decision for us to make this season our last, we simply couldn’t imagine anything beyond it that would make for a better ending to the story nor a more natural handoff to Treasure Island.”
