Streaming service Max has opted against a third season of the period romantic comedy series “Our Flag Means Death.” Set in the early 18th century during the Golden Age of Piracy, the series followed the misadventures of gentleman-turned-pirate Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby) and his crew aboard the Revenge as they try to make a name for themselves as pirates and cross paths with famed pirate captain Blackbeard (Taika Waititi).

“While Max will not be moving forward with a third season of ‘Our Flag Means Death,” we are so proud of the joyous, hilarious, and heartfelt stories that creator David Jenkins, Taika Waititi, Rhys Darby, Garrett Basch, Dan Halsted, Adam Stein, Antoine Douaihy, and the entire superb cast and crew brought to life. We also thank the dedicated fans who embraced these stories and built a gorgeous, inclusive community surrounding the show,” a spokesperson for Max said in a statement.

A total of 18 episodes of “Our Flag Means Death” was produced.
