The first season was a critical success, scoring 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and receiving a "Certified Fresh" rating. Audiences loved it even more, giving it 94% with over 500 ratings. 

As someone who watched season 1 (also available on BBC iPlayer), I wholeheartedly agree with this assessment. If you don't like the comedic styles of Rhys Darby and Taika Waititi, then this probably won't be the show for you, but otherwise, "Our Flag Means Death" is one of the best original shows Max has to offer. Especially as it makes the turn from historical fiction to romantic comedy as the first season progresses.

Spoiler warning: "Our Flag Means Death" is loosely based on the real-life story of Bonnet, so avoid Wikipedia if you don’t want to know what’s coming. We'll avoid it here too. But read on if you want to know how to watch "Our Flag Means Death" season 2 from anywhere, who's in it and more.

"Our Flag Means Death" season 2 trailer

"We're on a break." No, I'm quoting Friends, though Stede Bonnet and Blackbeard's relationship certainly has some notes of Ross and Rachel. Well, if both Ross and Rachel were pirates and Rachel wanted to murder Ross after leaving her.

Fully expect "Our Flag Means Death" season 2 to lean into the fallout from Stede and Blackbeard's breakup as well as the fact that Stede still doesn't really know how to be a pirate and Blackbeard struggles to be anything more than a murdering swashbuckler. If you liked season 1 of "Our Flag Means Death", season 2 looks set to give you more of the same comedic gold.
