Based on true events, Our Flag Means Death is a show about Stede Bonnet who retired at age 42. Before retiring, he wanted more adventure in his life and became an infamous pirate instead. It’s a show about early American history, the Golden Age of Piracy, and the birth of a country. There’s romance, conflict, action, and drama as Stede tries to carve his place in the world and prove himself as a man and as a pirate. If you love shows set in a historical period, you’ll love how this one highlights some lesser-known players in the events that led up to America’s liberation from England at the turn of the 18th century. A lot of it is told through conversations on a ship or while they’re on land-not just visually but also with sound.

What is the series about?
The series is about Stede Bonnet and his crew on their adventures in the Caribbean. At the beginning of the series, he is an elderly man who has become bored with his life. He was a wealthy landowner but decided to retire from that life and become a pirate. However, his adventures soon prove to be more complicated than anticipated when they go against everything he knew before that moment. He’s determined to keep it a secret from his wife, who thinks he’s dead, but he soon learns that she is living on the same island he is.
What makes this series different from other adventure series?
One of the most notable aspects of this series is its depiction of how human nature can change when a person is forced to live by different rules. It’s about the greed, desire, and ruthlessness that come out of being a pirate. The series also highlights how piracy was more than just a profession-it was a way of life. The quality of the series is just as good as those on popular streaming sites.
When is the series going to be released?
The exact release date of this series hasn’t been announced yet. All we know is that it’s coming out in 2018. The first season was released in January of 2016, so the second season may also come out around then. If you love shows that are similar to Outlander-this is one of them.
