Starz released today at New York Comic Con the official trailer for the fourth and final season of the Emmy®-winning Original series “Black Sails,” returning Sunday, January 29th, 2017 at 9 pm ET/PT. The 10-episode fourth season of the stand-out high seas drama brings fans to the heroic conclusion of the Treasure Island prequel, and finds our pirates at war in the West Indies. The shores of New Providence Island have never been bloodier, but the closer civilization comes to defeat, the more desperately, and destructively, it will fight back.
The first three seasons of “Black Sails” averaged 3.6 million multi-platform viewers per episode* and the series is distributed in nearly 200 countries and territories worldwide. “Black Sails” has been nominated for multiple Emmy® Awards, and won for Outstanding Sound Editing in 2016 and 2014, and for Outstanding Special and Visual Effects in a Supporting Role in 2014. The show was also nominated for the 2016 GLAAD Awards for “Outstanding Drama Series.”

Steinberg (“Jericho,” “Human Target”) and Robert Levine (“Touch”) and executive produced by Steinberg, Levine, Michael Bay (the Transformers franchise, 13 Hours, Pearl Harbor), and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Purge, and Ouija franchises), as well as Chris Symes (Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Eragon), Brad Caleb Kane (“Fringe,” “Crash”), and Dan Shotz (“Jericho,” “Harper’s Island”).
