We 'Hey!'  Getting a second season of 'Our flag means death'

We can see Gentleman’s Pirate Waltz at Blackbeard’s Bar & Grill and other dishes and delights and fishing equipment on a very busy Sunday night.

HBO Max announced Wednesday that it has renewed Its series “Our flag means death” for the second season. The news comes nearly three months after the queer-friendly pirate comedy starring Taika Waititik (Blackbeard) and Rhys Darby (Stead Bonnet/The Gentleman’s Pirate) began their first season in March.

The show follows Stade Bonnet, a wealthy 18th-century man living a comfortable life after he abandons his wife and children to become a wannabe swashbuckling buccaneer by buying a ship called the Revenge. As he struggles to lead a hired crew of misfit pirates, he meets the infamous Captain Blackbeard. To their surprise, a deep bond develops between the two as they embark on an adventure on the high seas. The show is also very loosely based on the real-life Stead Bonnet.

The show’s producers said in an HBO Max press release, “While we were making it, we felt the show was special, but the open-arms embrace of Revenge residents’ fans made the second season all the more sweet. ” The streaming platform, executive producer of the show and “our wildly enthusiastic audience for making another journey to this world possible.”

The enthusiastic audience may be slightly underestimated. Fans on Twitter have been praising, meme-ing and creating fan art for the show since its inception. Take a look below, and here’s hoping all these fans are celebrating tonight with some swigs of grog.
