The series revealed 20 years before the period when things began to take place in Treasure Island. The period 20 years before was the Golden age of Pirates.

Storyline: Black Sails
The show black sails takes us to a period. At that period, a pirate is considered a significant threat to every marine import and export. Therefore these pirates were regarded as enemies by all nations. And the pirates thought all countries add their enemies and they followed their own rule that is to fight against the world.
The show starts with the pirates who are in search of treasure named galleon Urca de Lima. Somehow pirates manage to find the lost treasure but while bringing it back. The prize gets lost in the shores. After then the catch is kept under the guards of Spanish soldiers. Pirate Jack Rackham and his friends find the treasure again and then transport it back to New Province Island. Further episodes show the origin of Flint and answered questions like, why did he choose to become a pirate instead of being a reputed navy officer. All in all, the fight is between the British and the pirates they both battles against each other so that they can gain control over New Providence Island.
Having four seasons released every season answers a question. The first season mostly focuses on the hunt of Spanish treasure. In the second season, the prize becomes stranded in the shores of Florida. But in the end, Pirate Jack Rackham takes back the treasure to New Providence Island. Also, why and how Flint became a pirate from a navy officer is answered in the second season. Season three and four show war between pirates and the British Empire to gain control over New Providence.
