Historical fiction is a great genre, and some shows are bringing some modern elements to draw in a new crowd. The Buccaneers is a must-watch. Now you just need to know how many episodes will be in the first season.

There are some great new shows out right now, and The Buccaneers is one of them for those who like historical drama with a more modern flare. This is the way to go to get the newer generation in the genre.

The first four episodes of the series are now available. Is this the halfway point, or will there be a lot more episodes? One of the issues with streaming platforms is that we never really know.

Apple TV+ does tend to favor the 10-episode series, but that’s not the case with this one. The Buccaneers will only have eight episodes.

That’s right; there are just eight episodes to the season. We are at the halfway point already.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t more juicy drama to come. There is still plenty of time for characters to take matters into their own hands. There’s more time for the Americans to offend the British Upper Class. And who wouldn’t want to do that when you consider how judgmental the Upper Class is?

By knowing the episode count, we also know when the finale of the season will air. Get Wednesday, Dec. 13 in your diary. This is when you can binge-watch the whole season.

Of course, you’ll want to watch the episodes as they arrive on Wednesdays. This is the best way to show to Apple that you want more of the show so that it’s renewed. It’s hard to say what the streamers will do with content or what the new expectations will be for renewals now that the SAG-AFTRA strike has come to an end.
