Our Flag Means Death, the sleeper hit pirate romance/comedy that is “loosely” based on the true lives of two infamous pirates—Ed “Blackbeard” Teach and Stede Bonnet—returns with an official teaser trailer for season two. As Taika Waititi’s Blackbeard deals with heartbreak and Rhys Darby’s Bonnet (The Gentleman Pirate) does everything he can to return to his lost love, there seems to be a lot of swashbuckling getting in the way of a happy ending for these two murder hobos.

The trailer shows Bonnet clearly trying to make amends but Blackbeard has returned to the violent, over-the-top scalawag that he was before he met Bonnet. We also get a lot of hints at what the crew of the Bonnet’s former ship is up to, and I spotted my favorite worst boy—Izzy Hands—for precisely .5 seconds, shirtless, swinging a sword, so I’m immediately here, seated, invested. Season two, ahoy!
