Watch Now: Black Sails Season 3 Trailer

maxres

A war is coming. Prepare to fight when Black Sails returns for Season 3 January 2016!

Den of Geek also has a great write:

“Yes, yes” say people in the know. “Of course, his name was Edward Teach, and he was captain of the Queen Anne’s Revenge and… and…”

And what else?

His name probably wasn’t even Teach. More modern scholarship says “Thatch” is closer to the truth, although even that may have been an assumed name. His early life remains a mystery. Scholars believe he may have been born in the English port city of Bristol in about 1680. His ability to read and write suggests a wealthy or at least middle-class background, unusual in a pirate.
