The rom-com is alive and well in 2022.
It’s also no surprise when you’ve got big names like Rhys Darby, Taika Waititi, Kristian Nairn and more navigating the genre…with a twist, of course.
Our Flag Means Death premiered on HBO Max in early March 2022 and quickly wowed audiences.
It was created by David Jenkins and is loosely based on the life of Stede Bonnet. Played by Rhys Darby, we are transported back to 1717 as he attempts to adopt the life of a pirate during the golden age of the high seas.
He tackles his ambitions head on, is accompanied by a crew and adventures are about to begin. However, the time has come. Is Our Flag Means Death Season 2 Confirmed?
Will Our Flag Means Death be renewed for Season 2?
No, neither HBO nor the series creator have announced the renewal of the second season of Our Flag Means Death.
The first season ended with episode 10 on Thursday March 24, 2022.
With that in mind, it’s likely that audiences will get a concrete update on the future of the show sometime in April.
However, the crew has already taken the time to announce what season 2 would bring…
WARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE SEASON 1 FINALE
“The show is the relationship”
In a conversation with decision makerCreator David Jenkins opened up about the future of the series in terms of the main characters Stede and Ed:
“The show is the relationship. So we end up in a place where there is this separation. What happens after a breakup between these two people, one of whom has realized he’s in love and the other is hurt like he’s never been hurt before?
He continued, “What does that do to each of them in an action-packed pirate world that they’re trying to find themselves in? So again, I really love those rom-com beats.”
With that in mind, future episodes — if given the green light — would explore these post-breakup blues.
The fans definitely want it
When it comes to determining renewal, it’s arguably just as important to consider audiences as viewership.
In fact, fans have already started clamoring for more. Check out a selection of tweets:
