Everything We’ve Heard About ‘Outer Banks’ Season 3

Outer Banks, aka our favorite summer TV obsession, is finally back for season 2. While our favorite Pogues work together to find treasure and take down any kook who gets in their way, we’re left on the edge of our seats as we wait for any news about a possible season 3.

Because of how huge season 1 was, it would be surprising if it didn’t make a grand return beyond one extra season. But anything can happen, and we’re keeping our fingers firmly crossed until season 3 news is official. Are we heading back to the OBX for another wild summer? Or do we have to take a boat off the island and say goodbye to our favorite Pogues?

Here’s everything we’ve heard about Outer Banks season 3.

Are we heading back to the OBX for a third season??

Sounds like we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer for any official news on Outer Banks season 3. The show hasn’t been renewed for a third season just yet, so it’s all up to Netflix for now. But at least you can convince your friends to binge-watch season 2 so it has a better chance of coming back….

What is season 3 of Outer Banks going to be about?

So a lot went down in the season 2 finale that makes things extra confusing, but we're going to lay it all out anyway. After killing Ward the same way John B's dad died and failing to get back the gold cross, our favorite Pogues are now on a mysterious island all by themselves (aka Poguelandia). Knowing Rafe and Kie's parents, the Pogues may not be stuck there forever, even if they don't even know how to get back home just yet. And because it's Outer Banks, of course there was a finale twist: John B's dad is actually alive. We don't know how or why he's been away for so long, but it sure looks like he'll finally come out of hiding.

And yes, this twist has always been part of the showrunners' big plan: "It's going to be instrumental and maybe the spine [of season 3] basically. It's obviously a gigantic revelation that's going to power a huge part of the third season," showrunner Shannon Burke told Entertainment Weekly. "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 the moment works and that people are excited."

Get ready, because this father-son reunion will definitely shake things up.

When would a theoretical season 3 premiere?

Well, we have to wait to see if season 3 is actually happening first!! But the show was able to come back just a little over a year later after getting renewed, so we can probably expect it to return in summer 2022 if it gets the green light.
