The One Piece live-action adaptation hit Netflix at the end of August and has had everyone in a pirate mood ever since. Unfortunately, there’s only one season of the show (though plenty of anime to watch), but pirate fans will soon have another wacky pirate series to keep the seafaring vibes going. Our Flag Means Death Season 2 is on the way, and Max just dropped the new trailer, which you can check out now.
Our Flag Means Death followed Darby’s gentleman pirate and his crew aboard the ship Revenge as they attempted to make a name for themselves in the Golden Age of Piracy.
Our Flag Means Death is easily one of the best comedy shows going on Max right now, and the pirate setting of the series just makes it that much better. As you can see in the trailer, it seems that the show will be picking up quickly after the events of last season’s finale, where Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby) is trying to track down Edward Treach, aka Blackbeard (Taika Waititi), after the two failed to communicate their feelings for each other.
This means there is going to be plenty of swashbuckling, along with Waiti’s heartbroken Blackbeard truly embracing his merciless side.
Our Flag Means Death followed Darby’s gentleman pirate and his crew aboard the ship Revenge as they attempted to make a name for themselves in the Golden Age of Piracy.

The series has received overwhelmingly positive reviews since its release and pulls in a ton of viewers, ranking among the top five most-watched Max Original comedy series launches.
Along with having a sweet rom-com tale, Our Flag Means Death also has amazing set design and costume design, so it’s great for both rom-com fans and pirate fans alike.

The supporting cast is similarly star-studded, with guest stars like Fred Armisen, Kristen Schaal, Nick Kroll, Tim Heidecker, Leslie Jones, Will Arnett, and many more.
Of course, Our Flag Means Death has an impressive team behind the scenes as well, with Taika Waititi acting as an executive producer and sometimes director for the series, along with starring in the co-lead role. Other executive producers on the show include creator David Jenkins along with Garrett Basch and Dan Halsted.

When To Watch Our Flag Means Death Season 2
The highly-anticipated second season of Our Flag Means Death seems that it will keep the good reviews, hilarious guest stars, and engaging story going. As evidenced by the massively popular launch of the One Piece Netflix live-action adaptation, it’s clearly a pretty good time to be a pirate-based show on TV right now.
It’s even better for fans of pirate shows because when Our Flag Means Death premieres its second season on October 5, there will be not just one but two awesome pirate shows available to watch this fall.
