Spoilers ahead for Outer Banks seasons 1 and 2.
Outer Banks likes to seal each season with a (ludicrous, yet undoubtedly wonderful) bang. Remarkable cliffhangers have actually long made teenager dramas their pedigree, and the Netflix fan favorite following a team of young misfits going after riches along the North Carolina coast does not transform the wheel. If you have actually ever enjoyed a teen soap, you understand the drill: Reserve your misgivings. Purchase into the acini. Just then can the genuine enjoyable start.
Season 1 achieved the fireworks in its ending, in which orphaned fugitive John B Routledge’s wild effort to avert authorities capture led him to crash his boat straight into a hurricane. However he and his rich-girl flame, Sarah Cameron, were quickly exposed to have actually endured the wreck—and not just were they alive and well, they were saved by a boat that so taken place to be headed to Nassau, where $400 million in gold awaited them.
However wait—season 2 ups the ante by a hair-raising degree. There are automobile goes after! Break-ins! A taken ambulance! Boat surges! Alligator attacks! A suspicious medical professional and his much more suspicious technique to sewing up bullet injuries! Allergies to wasp stings! Drain floods! A murder in the putting rain! Do not believe excessive about whether any of it makes good sense—simply soak it in. By the time the 2nd season ricochets to a close, it’s difficult to bear in mind all that’s taken place, however you’ll be too intoxicated on adrenaline to care. And after that significant expose in the last seconds of the ending, all you can do is clap dumbly for a repetition.
Feel confident, a repetition there probably will be. As you wrest your brain back from your OBX acid journey, here’s an appearance towards the future—and whatever we understand about the Pogues’ next chapter.
Is a 3rd season verified?
yes. Netflix restored Outer Banks for season 3 on Dec. 7 with the assistance of the (extremely thrilled) cast.
Developer and showrunner Jonas Crown has actually formerly exposed that he pictures 4 or 5 seasons of the program in overall.
“Since we began, we constantly saw it as something that was most likely like a four-season, possibly five-season program, however absolutely 4 seasons,” he informed Home Entertainment Weekly in April 2020. “We have actually sort of long-arced it out quite far. I’m simply hoping that we get an opportunity to in fact inform those stories.”
He likewise exposed that “previously [season 1] even came out, Netflix had actually greenlit us to compose some [season 2] scripts,” which suggests the very same might have taken place for season 3.
When will it be launched?
OBX3 will show up at some point in 2023, Netflix revealed throughout Tudum. The banner likewise shared a very first take a look at the brand-new season, with John B stating, How far will you go to get your treasure?”
Outer Banks debuted its very first season in April 2020, right as Americans were settling into lockdown. Season 2 dropped in July 2021, even with the COVID-19 pandemic shocking normal production timelines.
Who remains in the Outer Banks season 3 cast?
according to due date, series regulars Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow, Austin North, Drew Starkey, and Charles Esten are slated to return. We’ll likewise be seeing more of Cleo, as Carlacia Grant, the starlet who plays her, has actually been promoted to series routine also.
What will season 3 have to do with?
Netflix hasn’t revealed any main plot information yet, however it’s safe to presume the 3rd season will continue the witch hunt of the very first and 2nd. That $400 million in gold is still nestled in the Bahamas, and now there’s a bejeweled cross in the mix also!
Ward Cameron, Sarah’s atrocious dad, is hurt however alive, having formally passed the baton to his progressively irregular child, Rafe, who no doubt will be gunning for vengeance versus John B and his team. On The Other Hand, John B and Sarah are as soon as again sort of married (?), and Cleo from Nassau has signed up with the Pogues, shipwrecked (probably without food or water?) on an island in the Caribbean. We can anticipate season 3 to include their journey house, in addition to their huge prepare for taking back the cross and the gold. However essential will be the assumed reunion in between John B and his long-thought-deceased dad, Big John, who obviously understands something about the spiritual garment the frightening Limbrey looks for to recover her strange illness.
How does Big John’s return effect the next chapter?
Jonas Crown informed television Line that Big John’s huge expose wasn’t constantly prepared. “We understood we had that card. We didn’t understand that we would play it for sure, however around the 6th or seventh episode, when we were composing this year, we began to recognize possibly we might do that,” he stated. He included that all the action in episode 10 of season 2 was indicated to work as a diversion to leave audiences “actually on the incorrect foot.”
So you can anticipate much of season 3 to concentrate on the long-lost dad’s return. “It’s going to contribute and possibly the spinal column [of season 3] generally,” showrunner Shannon Burke informed Home Entertainment Weekly. It’s undoubtedly substantial a massive discovery that’s going to power a part of the 3rd season. I’m very interested to see how individuals are going to respond or if they’re even going to remember who he was!”
What love can we anticipate in season 3?
Naturally John B and Sarah will continue their pseudo-marriage, however the other characters have a lot of brand-new love connections to check out. In an interview with HANDSseason 2 beginner Carlacia Grant exposed she has a lot of prepare for Cleo in season 3—consisting of a love.
“I’m actually thinking about seeing this entire Cleo and Pope thing occur, if it does occur,” she stated. “And I would like to see more of Cleo’s backstory. I, personally, actually wish to see more of her, more of where she originated from. And I desire her to be more bad-ass, absolutely more bad-ass.”
Burke teased that she, too, believes there will be more space for love now that the kids are all stranded together in Poguelandia: “We were generally shot out of a cannon in season 2. And we wish to have a bit more space for, like, our teenager drama and teenager love in season 3, simply as a basic concept,” she informed Home Entertainment Weekly.
If you detected some sexual stress in between JJ and Kiara this season, you definitely weren’t alone. Bailey exposed to Cosmopolitan that she might see the ship removing next season: “We’re both lively, we’re both constantly down for the insane concepts. There’s simply something these 2 characters have naturally in typical that might work.”
And the developers are aware of how terribly the audience desires the pairing to occur. Showrunner Josh Crown informed EW“We were right away open up to [Kiara and JJ getting together]due to the fact that it appears like a fascinating concept to check out, however we sort of left it for season 3.”
Where will the next season begin?
Probably, season 3 will get where season 2 ended—on a deserted island in the middle of the Caribbean. However the program work called Outer Banksso we question the Pogues will have the ability to avoid the North Carolina coast for long.
If that holds true, Cline has prepare for Sarah once she’s back in the OBX: “I wish to see her and John B need to sort of hash out what simply occurred. I wish to see her individual relationships with her picked household establish, ”she informed HANDS. “Perhaps we might get some backstory on her and Kie’s relationship. Perhaps see her shot to go to Pogue high school. Perhaps see her shot to get a task.”
Asked if she believes Cleo will delight in coping with the Pogues in the States, Grant informed HANDS, “I believe she’s going to have a couple of missteps. I believe not having the ability to bring a knife on her waist might be [a struggle]” More seriously, Grant included, “I believe she will find out to adjust, however I understand she’s going to have missteps because—how is the Outer Banks going to require to her? She she does talk with an accent. She is utilized to doing things her own method. There’s going to be some things that possibly Kiara and Sarah and the Pogues are going to resemble, ‘Yo, you can’t do that.’”
