What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the Starz premium cable channel, Black Sails begins roughly 20 years prior to the events of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island novel and follows the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens). The fourth season finds the pirates at war in the West Indies. The shores of New Providence Island have never been bloodier, but the closer civilization comes to defeat, the more desperately and destructively it will fight back. The Black Sails TV show cast also includes Hannah New, Luke Arnold, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Tom Hopper, Toby Schmitz, Clara Paget, Ray Stevenson, Luke Roberts, and Zethu Diomo.

Abandon ship! Although Starz renewed Black Sails for season four, back in the summer of 2015, by July of 2016, the premium cabler issued a press release announcing the renewal was for the the pirate drama’s fourth and final season. There’s little for this scurvy lot to do, but walk the plank. I’ve been circling it for nigh on seven months.

What do you think? Are you sad Black Sails ended with season four? Should Starz have renewed this TV show for season five, instead? Finally, would you watch a sequel series?
I can’t believe they are not doing a 5th season for Black Sails!?! This show is amazing and they introduced new characters right before the end they pretty much have to make another season right?? Besides I’m pretty sure we all want to know how the main characters lives work out since their victory?? Or am I the only one who thinks that would be rad to see??
I am obsessed with this show please bring on season 5,6 and 7!
I really enjoyed the black sails detours I can’t believe there will be no more. Please continue with season 5
******* pist right off this is an amazing show! So disappointed to read it won’t be back
Well this sucks. The show was amazing. I do believe more ship fights would of made it do better. But the plot was more than enough for me and for s4 to end on such a cliff hanger is not okay with me
Wow!! This really upsets me.to leave you hanging like that.please please make a season 5 .come on Starz
It’s all about the money, they have no money left to make season 5 ! Profit is all that counts for the maker, of such a Film sequence !
Capitalism in his finest term, so to say !
There should definitely be a season 5
Still questioning Season 5? If no S5, then possibly a sequel picking up with Long John Silver’s ascension to Nassau’s “ruler” until pirates finally descend into civilization.
Will there be 5 season of “Black Sails” I am eagerly waiting for him, I am a big fan of him
I want a 5th season too.
