Black Sails has been a high profile project for Starz ever since it was initially announced. The period drama is preparing to set sail for Season 2, and this weekend the subscription cable network dropped some bombshell news, as well as the first trailer for Season 2.
Starz is finally preparing to launch the second season of its hit Treasure Island prequel, Black Sails. On Monday, the subscription cable network released a brand new poster for the new season, as well as a plot description for the upcoming second season.
You know you're out of your time when someone says "I smell the vapors of hell on you," and someone else accuses you of being a witch. Claire Randall seems to be knee-deep in trouble and eager to get back to her own time period in the preview for Episode 3 of Outlander, titled "The Way Out".
A little more than a week ahead of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards are handed out, the Creative Arts Emmy Awards have taken place, offering justified praise to outstanding work (mainly) behind the scenes.
We still have a while to wait for Black Sails to return, but Starz promoted the adventurous pirate series this weekend when they debuted Outlander. The teaser for Black Sails Season 2 reminds us that Black is Back in 2015. And we're teased with a bit of action, adventure, ships, swords and some sexy!
Starz is quickly becoming a great premium cable destination for adventure, with Da Vinci's Demons and Black Sails among their current series, and time travel period drama Outlander on deck to premiere this Summer. They also have 50 Cent's new drama Power lined up to premiere, giving subscribers much to anticipate as the warmer months approach. Starz teased all of the above in their latest preview, offering a glimpse of what 2014 is offering subscribers.
It would be easy to see this as a dicey proposition, but the nice thing about subscription cable is that after a showís initial airing, that program is readily available to the public, and in the case of Black Sails, a Saturday premiere date has absolutely paid off, bringing in millions of viewers across multiple platforms over the weekend.
Being a pirate is difficult, and not only because itís a tough living against the grain of society. Itís a tough world to live in because it has been built on unstable footing, where each man and woman is out for his or herself, where allegiances are hard won, and where the tides of fortune can change rather quickly.
Starz has put together a slew of videos to tide over fans. The latest of these is ďBlack Sails: A Closer Look,Ē a video that gives us a closer look at Toby Stephenís Captain Flint, as well as offers a few more snippets of footage from the new series
Starzís new drama Black Sails got a big advertising push at San Diego Comic-Con over the summer, with a giant ship replica and a screening of the first episode to explain why buzz was at an all-time high. The drama continued that advertising trend at New York Comic-Con, releasing a brand new trailer for the drama, which is set to premiere in 2014.
Ahoy mate, today is Thursday, September 19. In case ye be forgetting, the day is also Talk Like A Pirate Day. Iíve never been particularly fond of pirate lingo, so Iíll go ahead and cut that stuff out right now, but if you are a fan of pirates and pirate talk, you should definitely make sure to catch the new teaser for Starzís upcoming series Black Sails.
A movie could have tied up the matter of Tom Kaneís degenerative neurological disorder in the series quite neatly; unfortunately Albrecht says that a movie is no longer in the cards for the subscription cable network.
Starz is a big fan of showing early confidence in its programming. Magic City was notably renewed for a second season just before its premiere aired and Da Vinciís Demons earned a Season 2 renewal just after its premiere did well on the subscription cable network. This time around, Starz isnít even bothering to wait until close to release time to announce a renewal. If youíve been excited about the Michael Bay-produced Black Sails series, you should be pleased to learn that the show will be returning for Season 2.
Those who are able to get to the exclusive sneak preview of Starz's upcoming new series Black Sails are in for more than just a bit of pirate action. Starz announced this week that Emmy nominated Composer Bear McCreary will be delivering a special performance to kick off the screening on Thursday night.
We have until January to wait for Starz's new drama series Black Sails to make its debut, and it's just as well. With no Spartacus to look forward to anymore, Michael Bay's new pirate drama may do the trick in quenching our appetites for swords and sea, if not sand. Those who are attending Comic Con in San Diego this July won't have to wait until January to see the Black Sails series premiere if they attend the planned screening for the series.
