The pirate-comedy, which recently wrapped up its well-received season 1, loosely follows the real-life adventures of the self-proclaimed “Gentleman Pirate” Stede Bonnet (Darby) and the crew of his ship, Revenge. While focusing on the swashbuckling hijinks of Bonnet and co., Our Flag Means Death has also explored the romantic relationship of Stede and the infamous pirate Blackbeard, played by Waititi.

The image, showing Waititi and Darby dressed in their pirate garb, was accompanied by a comment from the Blackbeard actor saying he was “very proud of this romantic comedy we made. Very proud.

Our Flag Means Death’s finale left viewers with numerous cliffhangers and questions, the most pressing of which being the fate of Stede and Blackbeard’s budding romance. Thanks to its success with critics and viewers alike, it seems likely the swashbuckling adventure will return to screens, though no official announcement regarding a season 2 has been made yet. With Waititi and Darby proudly celebrating their on-screen relationship, whether Our Flag Means Death is renewed or not, the show will remain an unabashed advocate for great LGBTQ+ TV forevermore.
