A new season of Outer Banks has finally arrived on Netflix and has wasted no time in jumping to the top of the Netflix Top 10 in the US and across several key regions. The show’s return and immediate rise to the top of the charts has created a natural curiosity among audiences who both haven’t yet begun watching the show as well as casual fans regarding whether the new season is worth adding to the watchlist — or frankly if it’s any good.

For those who haven’t been keeping up with the latest Outer Banks news and updates, let’s first take a look at what to expect from the new season which is streaming now! Here is how Netlfix describes Outer Banks season 3 via the official logline for the newest season of its hit drama:

"After losing the gold and fleeing the Outer Banks, Season 3 finds the Pogues washed ashore on a desert island that, for a brief moment, seems like an idyllic home. Officially deemed “Poguelandia,” the island’s newest residents spend their days fishing, swimming, and reveling in the carefree lifestyle of their temporary dwelling. But things quickly go south for John B, Sarah, Kiara, Pope, JJ, and Cleo when they find themselves once again caught up in a race for the treasure, quite literally running for their lives. They’re broke and far from home, they can’t trust anyone, Ward and Rafe are hungry for revenge, and there’s a ruthless Caribbean Don who will stop at nothing to find the bounty. Was the treasure ever within their reach? Or was it all a trap to stop them once and for all? Either way, it’s the Pogues against the world – and the only way out is together."

Needless to say, the third season of Outer Banks promises a lot but does the show actually follow through on its promises to deliver a must-see season?
