Black Sails Season 3 Synopsis

Posted on Oct 23, 2015

In the wake of the burning of Charles Town, all the New World lives in fear of Captain Flint. But when his campaign of terror crosses over into madness, and new threats emerge to challenge his supremacy, it falls to John Silver to locate the man within the monster, before Flint’s war against the world consumes them all. Meanwhile, on the pirate island of Nassau, it’s a new day. With Eleanor Guthrie facing judgment in London, Jack Rackham sits atop a fortune in Spanish gold, hoping to secure his legacy as a king among thieves. To do so, he’ll have to compete with the return of one of history’s most notorious captains, who holds a different vision for their home, as well as a complicated past with Rackham’s chief ally, Captain Charles Vane. All will be tested when a new opponent arrives to claim Nassau, one the pirates could never have anticipated. It knows them. It understands them. And in the blink of an eye, it will do the one thing they never thought possible… turn them against each other.

The 3rd Season of Black Sails will begin airing on Starz in January 2016, but the cast will return to South Africa before the end of the year to start filming Season 4!

Beverly Hills, Calif. – October 1, 2015 – Starz released today the official season three trailer and key art for its Emmy®-winning Original series “Black Sails.” The series is created by Jonathan E.

Alan Purwin

Cinema lost one of the greats.

The Bay Films/Platinum Dunes family is feeling very sad. Alan Purwin was killed yesterday. He was one of the best aerial helicopter pilots in the world. It’s a very small group. He flew camera ships for so many – and for almost every one of my movies. We will miss him. He was one of the most loyal members of my team and a true friend.

Rest in peace buddy,

Michael
