“Outer Banks” is a Netflix American action-adventure and mystery teen drama series created by Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke.The series received positive responses and became the “It show” of 2020 after its epic premiere.
Set in a coastal town along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the storyline follows a group of teenagers who are on a mission to find out what happened to the missing father of the group’s ringleader.
Along the line, they discover a legendary treasure that is tied to the ringleader’s father. But there are others who would do anything to get the treasure.
From season one to two, a lot has happened and viewers are eager to see the next chapter of the story. While they wait for a possible return, let’s take a recap of what we know about the show so far.
Fans got to see John B (Chase Stokes) and his group of friends, a.k.a. The Pogues discover the location of tons of gold when they went on a search for John B’s missing father.
Along the line, John B met Sarah Cameron (Madelyn Cline), the daughter of an influential person named Ward Cameron.
The duo fell in love and was inseparable as the Pogue’s quest for an answer continued.
At the end of season one, fans also saw John B and Sarah’s boat crash in a storm. Luckily, they were rescued by another boat that was headed for the Bahamas.
The others; Pogues, Ward (Charles Esten), Rafe (Drew Starkey), Topper (Austin North) thought they had perished in the tropical storm.

Furthermore in the season, John B. was on the run from the police after he was framed as the killer of Sheriff Peterkin.
However, it was Rafe who killed the sheriff, and his father, Ward, helped to cover it up. Sarah knew that John B. was innocent while her brother and father were to blame for the heinous crime.
This season kicked off with our favorite couple still on the run when they reached the Bahamas. They eventually reunited with the other Pogues, and the hunt for the treasure continued.
As the season unfolded, more dramas ensued, and the season climaxed with an all-out brawl between the Pogues and the Camerons for the golden cross of Santo Domingo.
Despite their best efforts, the Camerons took off with the treasure as Rafe held the Pogues at gunpoint. He decided not to fire and promised Ward that they would come back for Sarah in the future.
Later in the series, John B had an intense confrontation with Ward that left Ward gravely injured. In the end viewers also discovered that John b’s dad was still alive.
A Third Season?
No news has been disclosed about the renewal of the series. However, many believe a new season would be in the works due to the critical acclaim the show has garnered already.
If the hit series is renewed, producers Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke have revealed that the return of Big John will be the main arc of the series.
“It’s going to be instrumental and maybe the spine [of season 3] basically,” Burke told Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s obviously a gigantic revelation that’s going to power a huge part of the third season. I’m super interested to see how people are going to react or if they’re even going to remember who he was! We’re really having our fingers crossed that the moment works and that people are excited.”
Josh Pate added that viewers would see more treasures come up for grabs. But for now, they’re stuck on a deserted Island, where romances will unfold.
Season Three Cast
When the first season aired in April 2020, a second season was announced four months later in July 2020.
If Netflix should stick to that pattern, a third season could be announced in October 2021 then probably premiere in 2022.
With that in mind, “Outer Banks” season three will undoubtedly bring back all the major Pogues such as John B, Sarah, Madison Bailey as Kiara, Jonathan Daviss as Pope, and Rudy Pankow as JJ.
Given how season two came to an end, new Pogue Cleo, played by Carlacia Grant, would likely return as well.
The father and son duo of Rave and Ward would also be expected to come back and serve more troubles in the series.
