STARZ today announced that Black Sails season three will premiere early next year. The Emmy-award winning original series is set to return to the network on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 9:00pm ET/PT.

Black Sails season three opens in the wake of the destruction of Charles Town, where the world lives in fear of Captain Flint. When his campaign of terror crosses over into madness, it falls to John Silver to locate the man within the monster. Meanwhile, with Eleanor Guthrie gone, Jack Rackham and Captain Charles Vane struggle to secure Nassau for the ages.

All are tested when a new threat arrives in Nassau, one the pirates could never have anticipated. It knows them. It understands them. And in the blink of an eye, it will turn them against each other.

The complete second season is available on DVD and Blu-ray starting November 3, 2015.

The series, which is about to begin production on its recently-announced fourth season in Cape Town, South Africa, is created by Jonathan E. Steinberg (“Jericho,” “Human Target”) and Robert Levine (“Touch”) and executive produced by Michael Bay (the Transformers franchise, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor), and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Purge), as well as Chris Symes (Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Eragon) and Dan Shotz (“Jericho,” “Harper’s Island”).

The first two seasons of Black Sails averaged 4.5 million multi-platform viewers per episode and the series is distributed in over 175 countries and territories worldwide. Black Sails won two Emmy Awards in 2014, for Outstanding Special and Visual Effects in a Supporting Role, and Outstanding Sound Editing.
