It is being reported that Our Flag Means Death has been cancelled by Max after two seasons. The news comes less than three months after the period comedy wrapped its 8-episode sophomore run.

"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," a spokesperson for the streamer said in a statement. "We also thank the dedicated fans who embraced these stories and built a gorgeous, inclusive community surrounding the show."

The half-hour series follows an 18th century aristocrat who trades in his comfortable life for one of a buccaneer. As the captain of a pirate ship, he struggles to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew. But his fortunes change after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard.
