Why It’s Underrated: Depending on who you ask, Outer Banks could either be overrated or underrated. Admittedly, Netflix’s new hit teen mystery series received a lot of hype this spring and was a major topic of online chatter when fans started discovering the show. But even though it’s attained a powerful fanbase, we’d venture to argue that Outer Banks is actually underrated and should be given us much fuss as teen dramas like, say, Riverdale.

Outer Banks takes place in, where else, the Outer Banks of North Carolina and centers on a group of teenaged friends known as the Pogues. Living on The Cut, the Pogues are led by John B. (Chase Stokes), whose father has recently gone missing. Along with his friends, John B. embarks on an adventure to find his father, unraveling a mystery involving legendary treasure in the midst of their rescue mission. The Pogues encounter bumps in the road, including a rival group of rich kids.

Upon premiere in April 2020, Outer Banks grabbed mostly positive reviews from critics and built a sizable following thanks to excellent word of mouth. The series was nominated for five Teen Choice Awards, a rite of passage for any teen drama series, ultimately winning one for Bingeworthy Show of 2020. And we have to admit, the teens chose this one correctly. Don’t sleep on Outer Banks and let this one become an underrated entry in the teen drama canon.

Outer Banks is coming back for season 2!
