BlackSailsPirates get more booty.

We’re talking about treasure, of course.

Starz recently announced the renewal of the second season of Michael Bay’s “Black Sails” television series in advance of its first season premiere. Bay is an executive producer on the project.

So it must be that good.

Here’s the series synopsis:

The highly anticipated pirate adventure, Black Sails, centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.” Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day – a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.

Starz’s “Black Sails” will be aired in January next year.

Latino-Review participated in a round table interview with some of their cast members at the recent San Diego Comic-Con International 2013. The cast members participating included Zach McGowan, Jessica Parker Kennedy and Mark Ryan.
