Our Flag Means Death is a new upcoming adventure-comedy series from HBO Max which was announced in January 2021. The show is being developed with Taika Waititi, David Jenkins, and Garrett Basch as the executive producers. Waititi, who previously worked on comedies like Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit, is the co-creator of the show.

The series is based on the true story of Stede Bonnet, a pampered aristocrat who abandoned his life of privilege to become a pirate. He recruited a crew and, in 1717, crossed paths with Edward Teach, the infamous Blackbeard. The show is set in the 18th century when pirates were roaming the seven seas, looking for treasure and adventure. The title Our Flag Means Death is taken from the real-life flag of Stede Bonnet's pirate ship, which was a white flag with a skull and crossbones and an hourglass beneath.

The lead role of Stede Bonnet is portrayed by Rhys Darby, the New Zealand comedian and actor best known for his role as Murray Hewitt in Flight of the Conchords. Darby is a highly popular comedian in his home country, and he has also appeared in several internationally popular movies, including Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Yes Man.

The series also stars Joel Fry, who recently played Hizdahr zo Loraq in Game of Thrones, and Samson Kayo, who starred in BBC's comedy series Famalam. Fry will play the role of a fearsome fine pirate named Black Caesar, while Kayo will play the role of Funbeard, an orphan who becomes the ship's cook. The show also features Kristian Nairn, best known for playing Hodor in Game of Thrones.

The series is described as an irreverent adventure series, and it promises to be a hilarious take on the pirate genre, with over-the-top humor and slapstick comedy. The showrunners have assured that the series will be respectful of the historical context, but will not shy away from comedy. The show is set to be a refreshing and unique take on the pirate genre.

The trailers and promotional material for Our Flag Means Death are already generating a buzz among fans of comedy and the pirate genre. The show promises to be a hilarious adventure saga where the characters will embark on outrageous escapades, plunder treasure troves, and engage in epic battles. The series will explore the political and social realities of the pirate world, showcasing the scheming and backstabbing that defined pirate culture.

The series will feature gorgeous locations, costumes, and set designs that will transport the viewers back to the 18th century. With its talented cast, the show promises to be a treat for fans of comedy and adventure alike. The series will appeal to a wide audience, with its witty humor and colorful characters.

In conclusion, while further details about Our Flag Means Death remain scarce, what little information we have gathered so far points towards an exciting and hilarious series. The show's creators have shown a great deal of humor and respect for the pirate genre, and the talented cast has the potential to deliver one of the funniest pirate stories ever made. Fans of comedy and the pirate genre alike should get ready for an entertaining ride when Our Flag Means Death releases on HBO Max in 2022.
