Starz has recently released Black Sails Season 4’s poster and premiere date. The series poster depicted the best final season they prepared for the American dramatic pirate adventure television series.
According to the press release, the network announced the details on Black Sails Season 4, from its premiere date, which is on Jan. 29, 2017, Sunday, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, to the accomplishments made in the past two years.
In addition to that, it mentioned that the series will only have 10 episodes to air with an expected standout high-sea drama. In fact, they wrote that avid Black Sails fans can anticipate a Treasure Island prequel’s heroic conclusion, which they described as bloodier than what they have shown before. Furthermore, they can expect that the closer civilization will face their defeat with a planned desperate measure to counteract the destructive war.
As a pirate adventure series with an average 3.6 million multiplatform viewers, it is comparable to Jerry Bruckheimer’s highly successful and award-winning fantasy swashbuckler film series Pirates of the Caribbean, whether it can surpass the story’s success or not.
Black Sails Season 4’s storyline will remain its focus on the events that happened two decades before Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Treasure Island happened. Yet the interesting part, specifically the highly anticipated wars toward the end of the new series, will occur.
Surprisingly, the upcoming series is linked to HBO’s Westworld, wherein the show featured the same predictions regarding its content, as well as its A-list production team and cast members. They may not have a similar story, but their viewership competition and the level of explicitness in their content per episode are similar.
Given that Black Sails’ earlier seasons gained multiple Emmy Awards in the last two years since it aired on television, it is agreeable to foresee the series’ reach once it airs in early 2017. The bases are the capacity of the show to attain the number of viewership and recognition from different award-giving bodies such as the Emmys in 2014 and 2016 and GLAAD this year for the “Outstanding Drama Series” award they received the previous seasons.
The arguments cited are agreeable, according to TV Series Finale. Black Sails Season 4 has cast great actors like Toby Stephens, who is known for his brilliance and portrayal as Captain Flint, Luke Arnold as Long John Silver and others. Nevertheless, the show itself can gain the achievements that other close rival shows and films, Pirates of the Caribbean and HBO’s Westworld for instance, have earned.
