During a typically slow month as television is on a hiatus for the summer, there are only a handful of series seeing finales in August. Here’s a list of the 13 shows that will wrap up this month.
Crossbones – Saturday, August 2
NBC’s Crossbones sets out to tell the story of the infamous pirate Blackbeard, played by renown character actor John Malkovich, and capitalize on the pirate fad that’s been raging since Johnny Depp’s turn as Captain Jack Sparrow in the first Pirates of the Caribbean film. Set on the island in the Bahamas that Blackbeard ruled in the early 1700s, the show paints the pirate as immoral and corrupt, but also a brilliant and charismatic leader.
