It’s finally coming to Netflix after frustrated fans repeatedly branded their criminally underappreciated fave show “better than Game of Thrones.”
On January 1, numerous seasons (presumably all four) of Black Sails will finally arrive on the streaming service and, based on fan comments, will be worth your time.
Black Sails is a prequel to the 1883 novel Treasure Island that aired for 38 episodes across four seasons between 2014 and 2017, starring Tom Hopper, Tony Stephens, Hannah New, Luke Arnold, Jessica Parker Kennedy, and Zach McGowan from The Umbrella Academy.
While Black Sails slipped under many people’s radars, it nonetheless won three primetime Emmy Awards and has an astounding 81% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Fans dubbed Black Sails a “queer pirate” show since it aired at the same time as Game of Thrones.
However, many people considered and still think that, unlike any fantasy epic, Black Sails should have been given its dues and provided with its finale.
‘Everything society gave to Game of Thrones should have been given to Black Sails,’ Scurvy Bones wrote on X. Four seasons of heartbreaking character writing, period-piece graphics, well-directed action, and superb performances.
‘Watch this programme right away. Toby Stephens should have received numerous Emmy nominations.’
‘I will be saying this for at least the next twenty years,’ Meegs acknowledged. And Black Sails landed safely! ‘Better than any other intricate narrative I can imagine.’
One One Hat Town even went so far as to proclaim Black Sails the “best show I have ever watched.” ‘While it saddens my heart that it doesn’t have a larger audience, I love that I get to introduce people to it,’ they wrote.
‘Not to mention genuine powerful gay representation and a wonderful finale,’ Phobos said.
When Game of Thrones neared its conclusion in 2019, reviewers and fans alike condemned it. More than a million people signed a petition requesting that it be redone by a ‘competent’ team.
Unfortunately, Black Sails will only be accessible on Netflix in the United States for the time being, although it is already available on Starz in the United Kingdom.
