'Black Sails' Seizes Opportunity in Season 2 Trailer

Starz has released a new trailer for the second season of Black Sails. The pirate drama and Treasure Island prequel will return for another round of episodes beginning Jan. 24.

This time around, however, viewers will get an extra two episodes with Captain James Flint (Toby Stephens) and his crew; Black Sails saw its episode order increase from eight to 10 for its sophomore outing.

The promo indicates hard times ahead both on the high seas and on land as ominous, piano-driven music plays over the solemn -- and at times violent -- footage from the new season. "Everyone is a monster to someone," the voiceover states as the footage transitions from bloody battles and executions to funerals. The Golden Age of Piracy was not an easy time to be alive.

Toby Stephens, Hannah New, Luke Arnold, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Zach McGowan, Toby Schmitz, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Sean Cameron Michael and Louise Barnes are all set to return to the open water when Black Sails returns Jan. 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
