The upcoming fourth season of Starzs Black Sails will be its last, the premium cable network announced Wednesday. Black Sails was created by Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine, and executive produced by Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form , as well as Chris Symes and Dan Shotz. Its a rare privilege in television to be given the kind of creative freedom weve enjoyed on this show over the last four years. While it was a difficult decision for us to make this season our last, we simply couldnt imagine anything beyond it that would make for a better ending to the story nor a more natural handoff to Treasure Island, said Steinberg in a statement. Wed like to thank Chris, Carmi and everyone at Starz for all their faith and support, and to our astounding cast and crew for joining us on this ride.

So far this season of Black Sails has been nothing short of stellar. Michael Bay has been at his best assembling an incredible cast. And we can’t wait for tonight. Tonight there is no other choice on Black Sails. We’re headed for a killer. Looks like a giant storm is on its way and people are predicting some serious events to take place. We hear that Eleanor is told a few home truths by straight talking Mrs. Hudson. Blackbeard and Vane are going head to head. Capt. Flint is trying to fight a storm while running away from a ship!

It’s gonna get ugly but at the same time completely awesome. READ MORE...
