If you’re looking for a new coming of age series to binge on Netflix, look no further than Outer Banks.
Over the last few years, Netflix has made a concerted effort to ramp up their coming of age programs and high school dramas. Whether it was with Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why, On My Block, Sex Education or any other number of programs Netflix has made, they’ve been tremendous successes for the demographic they’re targeting.
If you’re a fan of any or all of those shows, or you’re a fan of classic coming of age dramas like The O.C., One Tree Hill or Dawson’s Creek, then you’re going to want to check out Outer Banks, a new Netflix Original that is now streaming globally.
Read the Outer Banks synopsis courtesy of Netflix below:
"Outer Banks is a coming of age story that follows a tight-knit group of local teens (the “Pogues”) in the beach vacation destination of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. When a hurricane kills the power for the summer season, it sets off a chain of illicit events that force the friends to make life-altering decisions. The search for their ringleader’s missing father, forbidden romances, a high-stakes treasure hunt, and the escalating conflict between the Pogues and their rivals turn their summer into one filled with mystery and adventure they’ll never forget."
