“Our Flag Means Death” Gets a Return Date: Will Stede Survive a Reunion with Ed?

Pirate comedy-drama-romance (just how do you categorize this show?) Our Flag Means Death returns to Max for a second season one Thursday, Oct. 26.

An eight-episode second season from creator-showrunner David Jenkins, executive producer and star Taika Waititi, and executive producer Garrett Basch, debuts with three initial episodes. The season is then set to continue with two new episodes weekly leading up to the season finale on Thursday, October 26.

The series is based (very) loosely on the true adventures of 18th century would-be pirate Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby). After trading the seemingly charmed life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling buccaneer, Stede became captain of the pirate ship Revenge.

Struggling to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew, Stede’s fortunes changed after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard (Taika 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.

Season one ended on a cliffhanger that saw Stede setting out alone, the crew in mortal peril, and Ed feeling betrayed and falling back into his old murderous ways. Will TV’s unlikeliest of lovers reunite, and more to the point, will Stede survive the encounter?

In addition to Darby and Waititi, season two stars returning cast members Samson Kayo, Vico Ortiz, Ewen Bremner, Joel Fry, Matthew Maher, Kristian Nairn, Con O’Neill, David Fane, Samba Schutte, Nat Faxon, and Leslie Jones.

New additions joining the ensemble cast include recurring guest stars Ruibo Qian, Madeleine Sami, Anapela Polataivao, and Erroll Shand, and guest stars Minnie Driver and Bronson Pinchot.

Our Flag Means Death is executive produced by Academy Award® winner Taika Waititi, alongside creator-showrunner David Jenkins.

In addition to his duties as showrunner, Jenkins directed the first two episodes of season two.

Garrett Basch, Dan Halsted, Adam Stein, and Antoine Douaihy also serve as executive producers.

Season two was filmed in Auckland, New Zealand.
