Crossbones may be the most anticipated NBC series of the year, partly because it has been in development for a very long time (it was announced in May 2012 and our first post about the period drama was in June 2012!). Other major draws include John Malkovich playing Blackbeard, the success of pirate franchises in recent years, and the promise of unique costumes and jargon in a mainstream network series. The setting of 1715 Bahamas
Well, the long-awaited series will debut on Friday, May 30th, at 9pm, with ten episodes scheduled. To tide you over until then, check out these new photos of the characters (all credited to Sandro/NBC) just released!
