Netflix’s mystery adolescent drama ‘Outer Banks,’ created by Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke, follows a gang of working-class local kids in the Outer Banks of North Carolina known as the Pogues.
While investigating the disappearance of the ringleader John B’s father, the teenagers engage on a treasure hunt.
As the Pogues battle a clear economic divide in the neighbourhood due to the presence of wealthy seasonal inhabitants, John B’s father, Big John, becomes engrossed in the search for the treasure, only to be followed by his son and pals.
‘Outer Banks,’ which premiered on April 15, 2020, received positive reviews from critics, who praised it for its superb cinematography and intriguing storytelling.
The social commentary, which examines the Banks’ economic and societal division, was also well received.
The show’s 2nd season concludes with shocking developments that raise additional doubts about Big John’s disappearance.
Here’s all we know about Season 3 of ‘Outer Banks,’ as fans are left perplexed by the second season-ending!
Release Date for Season 3 of Outer Banks
Season 2 of ‘Outer Banks’ premiered on Netflix on July 30, 2021, in its entirety. The second season consists of ten episodes that range in length from 42 to 61 minutes apiece.
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming third season!
Netflix has not yet decided whether or not to renew ‘Outer Banks’ for a third season. However, given the show’s strong ratings since its premiere in 2020, it’s quite probable that it will be renewed for a 3rd season.
According to Forbes, the show ranked third in popularity by the first half of 2020, surpassing some of the streaming platform’s more well-known titles.
The show’s writers also hinted at a season 3 renewal at the 2nd season conclusion. The creators discussed what may be expected from a third season in an interview with EW, with Shannon Burke cautioning, “I’m not sure if we should be talking about this yet.”
“And, as a general concept, we want to have a bit more room for things like our adolescent drama and teen romances in season 3,” Burke continued.
“And so the treasure search is going to expand, and the mythology surrounding the treasure hunt is going to evolve and get deeper,” Josh Pate said, joining Shannon Burke.
We’re really excited to see how that mythology expands in Season 3.” We can only hope that the renewal and subsequent production works are only a question of time now that the creators have a clear plan for the third season.
Season 3 of ‘Outer Banks’ is expected to premiere in last quarter of 2022 if all goes well.

What Could the Plot of Outer Banks Season 3 Be?
The second season of ‘Outer Banks’ comes to a surprising conclusion. Ward tells Sarah that he is still alive and that the whole dying thing was a ruse to keep his family safe.
Meanwhile, Sarah and John B are escorted by his companions to the Camerons to retrieve the Cross of Saint Domingo.
The Pogues are left on an island as a result of the pandemonium that unfolds.
Season 2’s great reveal is that Big John is alive and well in Barbados, communicating with Carla.
The 3rd season of the show is scheduled to start with the Pogues attempting to flee the island in order to resume their treasure hunt.
It’ll be interesting to watch how they deal with the Camerons in order to reclaim the gold and the cross.
With Big John still alive, the treasure search could take a new turn, with a possible collaboration with the teenagers.
According to the creators, the mystery surrounding the treasure will continue to grow in the third season.
There’s a chance we’ll see more young romance in the adventure. Josh Pate shared what could be coming in the aforementioned EW interview.
“We wanted to look into the Ki-Pope relationship, but we understand how fans feel about JJ and Ki.”
For the 3rd season, we wanted to tease that. We didn’t want to do it right away, but we absolutely want to do it since it caught us off guard, like the audience’s reaction to JJ and Kiara and their desire to see them together,” Josh explained.
In every aspect, we may anticipate more adventures, romance, and disasters orbiting the Pogues for a fun third instalment.
