The Starz pirate drama Black Sails is wrapping up with Season 4 next year, and it’s going out with a bang. Or, more accurately, a ka-boom!
The entire series, a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel Treasure Island, has been building up to a massive war in the West Indies between pirates and British settlers. And in the new trailer for the final season, which just debuted at New York Comic Con, we get all that and then some, with massive ship battles, cannonball blasts, and brutal hand-to-hand combat.
The characters even seem to know they’re nearing the finish line: As we see John Silver, Eleanor, and Captain Flint preparing for war, Rackham tells Bonny, “the end is about to begin.” And Flint won’t be satisfied with anything but victory, saying, “We came here not just to expel England, but to defeat them.”
But Silver has even bigger plans in mind, it seems. The trailer closes with a stunning shot of him in a doorway, standing on his one good leg, and declaring, “I’m here to free the New World.”
The fourth and final season of Black Sails premieres Sunday, Jan. 29 on Starz.
