Our Flag Means Death — the gay pirate series produced by Taika Waititi — has been cancelled by Max, as per The Hollywood Reporter.

The TV show had a fan-lauded run, with its second and final season airing last fall. A spokesperson from Max confirmed the show's cancellation in a statement:

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. We also thank the dedicated fans who embraced these stories and built a gorgeous, inclusive community surrounding the show.

Jenkins took to Instagram to speak on the show's end, saying in part, "I'm very sad I won't set foot on the Revenge again with my friends, some of whom have become close to family. But I couldn't be more grateful for being allowed to captain the damn thing in the first place."

Our Flag Means Death's untimely end follows Waititi's other FX series Reservation Dogs wrapping up with its third season last year.
