Beverly Hills, Calif., August 24, 2015 – Anchor Bay Entertainment announced today that they will release the thrilling STARZ Original series “BLACK SAILS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON” on Blu-ray™ + Digital HD with Ultraviolet™ and DVD on November 3, 2015. The Emmy® Award-winning series, created by Jonathan E. Steinberg (“Jericho,” “Human Target”) and Robert Levine (“Touch”) and executive produced by Michael Bay (the Transformers franchise, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor), and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Purge), follows the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.”

 

The first two seasons of “Black Sails” averaged 4.5 million multi-platform viewers per episode* and the series is distributed in over 175 countries and territories worldwide.  A fourth season greenlight was announced at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, and will follow the 2016 season three return.

 

The second season release has over an hour of new, exclusive bonus features including expanded commentaries from the cast and creators, and behind-the-scenes featurettes on the stunts and stunning special effects that garnered the series an Emmy® win in 2014 for Outstanding Special and Visual Effects in a Supporting Role.

 

“BLACK SAILS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON” begins where we left off, as the Walrus crew is stranded with an army of Spanish soldiers standing between them and the precious Urca gold. And with their crimes against their brethren no longer a secret, Flint and Silver must join forces in a desperate bid for survival. Meanwhile, Eleanor Guthrie struggles to maintain her grip on Nassau, as a new breed of pirate arrives in the form of Ned Low, a man for whom violence isn’t just a tool … it’s a past time.

 

As blood is spilled, and tensions mount, Charles Vane must decide which he values more; Eleanor’s life, or the respect of his men. And unbeknownst to all of them, a prize of immeasurable value has already been smuggled onto the island … one whose discovery will alter the very landscape of their world, and force everyone in Nassau toward the ultimate judgment: are they men, or are they monsters?

 

New Bonus Features:

  • Inside The World Of “Black Sails”
  • The Man O’ War
  • Expanding Worlds
  • High Seas Action
  • History’s Influence
