'Our Flag Means Death' renew at HBO Max for Season 2

New Delhi:

 The creator-showrunner David Jenkins and executive producer and star Taika Waititi are back with a second season on HBO Max.

Jenkins said in a statement, “We felt the show was special while we were making it, but fans’ open-armed embrace of the inhabitants of the Revenge makes heading into a second season all the more sweet.” 

“Thanks to our team at HBO Max, our invested executive producers, and our wildly enthusiastic audience for making another voyage to this world possible,” he added.

The well-received comedy has been hailed for its depiction of queer storylines in particular.

The first season was partially inspired by Stede Bonnet, an 18th-century would-be pirate (Rhys Darby). “After trading in the seemingly charmed life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling buccaneer, Stede became captain of the pirate ship Revenge,” said the official description.

“Struggling to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew, Stede’s fortunes changed after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard (Waititi). To their surprise, the wildly different Stede and Blackbeard found more than friendship on the high seas, they found love. Now they have to survive it,” the official synopsis read.

There is no information yet on how many episodes will be in the upcoming season or when it will premiere.

‘Our Flag Means Death’ also stars Nathan Foad, Samson Kayo, Vico Ortiz, Ewen Bremner, Joel Fry, Matt Maher, Kristian Nairn, Rory Kinnear, Fred Armisen and Leslie Jonesin, in addition to Darby and Waititi, as per The Hollywood Reporter.

Next up for Waititi is ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, which he co-wrote, directed, and co-stars in and will be released in theatres on July 8.
