Black Sails: Season 4 (2017)
Monday 12th June 2017
The thrilling, big-budget series from legendary producer Michael Bay reaches its conclusion in this stirring and action-packed fourth season as Black Sails: Season Four is released 28 August 2017 on DVD and Blu-ray from Platform Entertainment.
Hundreds of British soldiers lie dead in a forest... the Royal Navy sails back to England in retreat... the West Indies are now a war zone, and the shores of New Providence Island have never been bloodier. With the help of Eleanor Guthrie, Woodes Rogers transforms Nassau into a fortress without walls, as Captain Flint amasses a fleet of unprecedented strength, hoping to strike the final blow against civilization and reshape the world forever.
Meanwhile, from within the island... an insurgency builds, fueled by the legend of its exiled leader, whose name keeps grown men awake at night... the one they call Long John Silver. But as Flint, Silver and their allies are about to learn, the closer civilization comes to defeat, the more desperately and destructively it will fight back. Oaths will be shattered, fortunes will change hands, and amidst the chaos, only one thing remains certain: it has never been more dangerous to call oneself a pirate...
The ten episodes in Season 4 deliver high seas adventure and intrigue, a dash of romance, exotic locations, thrilling spectacle, huge fight scenes, and superbly drawn characters. Toby Stephens, starring as Captain Flint, positively relishes his role as the ruthless pirate attempting to bring down civilisation; he is joined by top British thespians Rupert Penry-Jones (Whitechapel) and Harriet Walter (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Australian actor Luke Arnold.
With jaw-droppingly choreographed set pieces, incredible effects, hundreds of extras, painstakingly recreated ships, this has the violent, gripping intensity of Game Of Thrones, and is much darker and more true to life than the Pirates Of The Caribbean films.
Black Sails: Season Four is an audacious and fitting end to one of the most ambitious and exciting shows of recent years.
