With Netflix’s EMMY-award nominations showing the power of such content, Starz has revealed that it is to pick up a second season of the original content series, Black Sails.
The programme is executive produced by Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbour director/producer Michael Bay and partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, and has ben re-signed by the global media and entertainment company even before its first season premiere.
“Michael Bay, Jon Steinberg and their teams delivered a spectacular first season of Black Sails, and we are incredibly proud of everyone’s work,” commented Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. “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.”
Creator and executive producer, Jon Steinberg, added:"We are thrilled to be receiving such an exciting vote of confidence from everyone at Starz and for the opportunity to carry the Black Sails adventure into Season Two without missing a beat. We couldn't ask for better partners in bringing our pirate world to life."
"We've had a fantastic experience working with Chris Albrecht and Jon Steinberg," said Bay. "Brad, Andrew and I look forward to continuing our partnership with Starz on future episodes for this extraordinary show."
