The first season only became available on that country’s film and television streaming service after each episode aired on the Starz cable and satellite channel in the United States, but the second season
episodes will appear every Sunday, mirroring the weekly release schedule of other series exclusive to Amazon Prime Instant Video in the UK, such as Constantine and Vikings.
Chris Bird, Director of Film & Television Strategy at Amazon Instant Video, said: “Incredibly popular among Amazon Prime Instant Video customers, Jonathan E Steinberg, Robert Levine, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form delivered a first exceptional season of Black Sails. We are excited to see what awaits viewers as this exciting new season unfolds. “
Black Sails is a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel Treasure Island. Set 20 years ago, it tells the story of the legendary pirate captain Flint, “the most brilliant and feared pirate captain of his time”.
The series stars Toby Stephens as the lead, Zach McGowan as Charles Vane, Luke Arnold as Long John Silver, Hannah New as Eleanor Guthrie, owner of a salon in the Fortress of the Pirates of Nassau and Hakeem Kae-Kazim as his advisor, Mr. Scott.
