‘Black Sails’ Renewed by Starz for Third Season

Starz has renewed its pirate drama “Black Sails” for a third season on the heels of the show’s sophomore return in January.

The early renewal is in line with network practice as it ordered a second season of the Michael Bay-produced series last July six months before a single episode aired on TV. Its debut went on to break Starz ratings records with more than 3.5 million viewers over its premiere weekend. It then averaged 5.3 million total viewers per episode.

“The incredible world that Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine have created continues to unfold in season 2,” Starz managing director Carmi Zlotnik said in a statement. “Flint’s journey is riveting, and around him, Jon and Robert have woven an intricate web of conflict, betrayal, and redemption for the other characters that we believe will keep fans of the show coming back for more.”

Black Sails” stars Toby Stephens, Hannah New, Luke Arnold and Jessica Parker Kennedy. It joins a skew of shows Starz recently renewed, including the comedy “Survivor’s Remorse” and the dramas “Da Vinci’s Demons,” “Power,” “Outlander,” “The One Percent” and “Flesh and Bone.”

Season two sets sail on January 24.
