Our Flag Means Dying followers, it is official: We’re getting a season 2!
HBO Max renewed the David Jenkins-created pirate comedy on June 1, a number of months after Season 1 wrapped with a crushing finale that separated Gentleman Pirate Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby) from Blackbeard (Taika Waititi). If we hadn’t gotten a Season 2, there would have been riots. Riots, I say!
Our Flag Means Dying grew to become successful throughout its 10-episode run this previous March and April, gaining consideration for its offbeat humor and wonderful portrayal of queer relationships. Followers clamored for a renewal announcement for months — for those who ever noticed some model of #renewOFMD trending, now you recognize why.
There was by no means any doubt in my thoughts that Our Flag Means Dying could be renewed for a Season 2. It was a critically acclaimed hit with a passionate fanbase, what else might a streaming service need? Nicely, it seems to be like HBO Max needed to attend till the primary day of Delight Month to announce the renewal of its queer pirate present. I imply positive, they’ve had months to announce a Season 2, however rainbow capitalism’s gonna rainbow capitalism.
Annoyance over the delayed announcement apart, I am extraordinarily excited to see the place Jenkins and his crew take the story. Carry on Season 2 and convey again Blackbonnet!
‘Our Flag Means Dying’ lastly gave queer fandom the love story we deserve
