Starz has blown wind into its upcoming pirate drama Black Sails with an early Season 2 pickup.
The Michael Bay-produced series doesn’t set sail until 2014, but the premium cabler today announced a second season renewal consisting of 10 episodes – making that ‘messy cliffhanger’ sound even more like a thing of joy.
Production for Season 2 will commence November 2013.
Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said:
“Michael Bay, Jon Steinberg and their teams delivered a spectacular first season of Black Sails and we are incredibly proud of everyone’s work. Based on the strong fan response to the preview screening at last week’s Comic-Con, we felt an early order for a second season would allow the writers, cast and crew enough time and space to continue crafting such unique and epic storytelling.”
