Just when you think things couldn’t get any twistier, Netflix renews Outer Banks for season three. No need to hunt for buried treasure anymore, we already know we want this. The first two seasons of the hit show captivated viewers with intriguing love triangles and mysterious cliff-hangers—and yeah, the off-screen drama helped a bit too. (Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline weren’t the only celebs to call it quits post-quarantine, but they might have been the youngest!)
If you haven’t tuned in, it’s hard to overstate just how obsessed with this show people are. It’s way more than another teen soap. It’s got high adventure, a treasure hunt, and at its core, a friend group you’ll fall in love with. It’s actually much closer to Veronica Mars than The O.C., and the second season just made the drama that much more intense. Both seasons are now streaming on Netflix, so there’s plenty of time to catch up before the new episodes drop!
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming third season of Outer Banks:
When will it be streaming?
The third season was announced on December 7, 2021, but no information about production or premiere dates is yet available.
