Outer Banks Season 2 was released one year ago this month, and we’re eagerly awaiting the return of the Netflix drama’s third installment. Our hero, John B. (Chase Stokes), and his buddies, the working-class Pogues, are prepared to continue their treasure search, and tensions between them and the elite-class Kooks are hotter than ever following Season 2 finale.
The series is set in North Carolina’s Outer Banks and follows a gang of young Pogues, who are the “lowest member of the food chain,” as John B. characterizes them. John B. and his buddies go on a mission to discover the truth about his father’s disappearance and must contend with Kooks as what started as an intriguing adventure turns into a deadly treasure hunt.
Outer Banks Season 1 premiered on April 20, 2020, and Season 2 was released on July 30, 2021. Here’s all we know about Outer Banks Season 3 thus far.
Latest News About Season 3
Elizabeth Mitchell, who plays the series’ cunning Carla Limbrey, foreshadowed what’s to store for her character in an interview with Metacritic. “I get to hang out with Big John (Charles Halford) quite a bit, which is fantastic,” Mitchell remarked. Big John promised Limbrey he would assist her to find the shroud with healing abilities if she agreed to aid his son John B in the final scene of Outer Banks Season 2.
“I’m not sure if you’d call it ‘teaming up,’ but they certainly spend a lot of time together, especially in the first portion.” Of course, Limbrey has proven herself to be untrustworthy – she murdered her half-brother in Season 2. “Let’s just say I don’t think Limbrey is a team player,” Mitchell added. Outer Banks’ official accounts announced the start of Season 3 production on February 28.
Outer Banks Season 3 Plot
Outer Banks writers and Netflix are playing their cards close to their chest when it comes to the third season’s plot, so it’s difficult to get a sense of what’s going to happen. Season 3 of Outer Banks will focus heavily on John B’s relationship with his father.
After the stormy conclusion of season 1, there was plenty of drama in John B. and Sarah’s relationship in season 2. meanwhile, the Pogues and the Kooks were still battling it out for the $400 million prize money John B’s father was finally found alive at the end of season two.
“John B’s relationship with his father is a key theme,” show producers Josh Pate and Shannon Burke told Entertainment Weekly. In the end, John B will have to reconcile his idealized image of his deceased father with the reality of his living father.”
Cast Involved in Outer Banks Season 3
On June 23, Netflix revealed new cast members for the upcoming season. Andy McQueen plays Carlos Singh, a “ruthless Caribbean Don on his own treasure hunt.” McQueen will be joined in the role of Singh’s top security officer by Lou Ferrigno Jr. Season 3 will also feature Fiona Palomo as Sofia, a “self-identified pogue who builds a close bond to Rafe,” according to Netflix.
Outer Banks Season 3 will see the return of series regulars Madelyn Cline, Rudy Pankow, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Austin North, Drew Starkey, and Charles Esten, in addition to Chase Stokes. Carlacia Grant, who plays Cleo, the newest member of the primary Pogues friend circle, has been promoted to series regular, according to Deadline.
Outer Banks Season 3 Release Date
For those who enjoy action, suspense, and romance, Outer Banks is a Netflix original American adventure genre drama. Netflix released the first season on April 15th, 2020. A new season premiered on July 31, 2021, after viewers gave it the go-ahead. Outer Banks season 3 is currently being produced and will be released in the near future. Official dates, on the other hand, have yet to be announced.
Season 2 of Outer Banks: What Happened?
Outer Banks Season 2 ended in a near-death encounter for the Pogues, much like Season 1 did. Much of the second season of Netflix’s show focused on John B., Sarah, JJ, Kiara, and Pope as they attempted to discover and recover the missing Cross of Santo Domingo.
The crew of the Coastal Venture stealthily boarded the ship in the season finale and attempted to cross the channel. After a violent shootout, they were forced to flee on a lifeboat. They were unsuccessful. The episode finished on a happy note, with the Pogues celebrating the fact that they were together and safe—for now.
By contrast, The Pogues ended Season 2 on an island with little food and no way to go back to civilization. Carla Limbrey, the season 2 villain, has made contact with John B’s father, Big John, and the two appear to be building an alliance to achieve their mutual goals. Is it possible for adversaries to become friends? We’ll have to keep an open mind till then.
The showrunners have confirmed that there will be plenty of romance, particularly among the Pogues. They will be exploring some long-awaited connections.
