We cannot wait to see Taika Waititi‘s upcoming piratical comedy series “Our Flag Means Death.” Hailing from HBO Max, the series looks to retell notable maritime history from the point of view of such historical figures as Blackbeard (Waititi) and Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby).
“This guy [Bonnet] had one of the world’s great, colorful midlife crises,” showrunner David Jenkins says. “That’s a great way into a show in any genre, but to mix that with pirates, I was like, Oh, this is fantastic.”
The cast also boasts “Saturday Night Live” alum Leslie Jones and Fred Armisen, Hodor himself Kristian Nairn, and Joel Fry (“Plebs,” “Cruella“).

It’s expected to hit HBO Max sometime in March of 2022.
