Who’s ready for Outer Banks season 3? Based on various rumors and the production schedule, we might not be waiting too much longer!

Outer Banks season 2 premiered on Netflix on July 30, 2021. It’s so wild that it’s already been that long. It feels like we were just watching the Pogues try to stay one step ahead of Ward Cameron, Limbrey, and find more treasure in the new season.

Of course, fans are getting rather impatient and anxiously awaiting any news about Outer Banks season 3 and the future of the Netflix original series.


How many seasons of Outer Banks are on Netflix?

There are two seasons of Outer Banks available to stream on Netflix right now. It also makes for a great re-watch if you need something to watch.


Will there be an Outer Banks season 3?

Yes! Netflix finally revealed the Outer Banks season 3 renewal news.

On Dec. 7, 2021, the official Outer Banks Twitter account shared a video of the cast announcing the long-awaited great news that season 3 is officially a go!

According to an earlier report from Small Screen, Outer Banks season 3 had already been renewed at Netflix. The report cites a source close to production who shared that the creative team is already working on season 3 AND season 4!

Now, and this is assuming that report is accurate, and it seems as though it was onto something given Netflix’s official season 3 renewal. We’d hoped for a multi-season renewal just like Netflix did with Bridgerton (for three seasons!) and Virgin River (for two seasons!).

Netflix also renewed The Witcher and Cobra Kai before the new seasons were released. So, things might be changing a little bit with how Netflix orders renewals. Normally, Netflix almost waits at least a month from the premiere of a new season before announcing the new season. Prior to the renewal announcement, we were nearly six months removed from the premiere of Outer Banks season 2.

Netflix renewed Outer Banks for season 3 just in time for the holidays. We didn’t expect to wait a long time to find out Outer Banks season 3 is happening, but it turns out it was well worth the wait. This is one of the best Netflix shows of 2021. Fans want to see the new season. There’s so much more story to tell.


When is Outer Banks season 3 filming?

As of February 2022, Outer Banks season 3 is officially filming! As we previously reported, one of the show’s directors, Valerie Weiss, took to Instagram to share some shots with the cast and let her followers know that shooting was about to begin. Check out the post below and get excited!

According to What’s on Netflix, Outer Banks season 3 is scheduled to film from February 2022 through August 2022, which means it’s going to be a close call for a 2022 release date.


Does Outer Banks season 3 have a release date?

Not yet, but it hopefully won’t be long now. Outer Banks only needed about four months of post-production on season 2, so there’s a really good chance we’ll see Outer Banks season 3 on Netflix in late 2022.

Will Outer Banks be in production from February until August? Or will there be some significant breaks? Everything is up in the air with the pandemic right now, so there could be some big breaks built into the production schedule. We’ll keep you posted!


Outer Banks season 3 cast

Based on what happened in season 2, we know who will return in the new season. We shared the expected Outer Banks season 3 cast below:

  • Chase Stokes as John B Routledge
  • Madelyn Cline as Sarah Cameron
  • Jonathan Daviss as Pope Heyward
  • Madison Bailey as Kiara “Kie” Carrera
  • Rudy Pankow as JJ Maybank
  • Carlacia Grant as Cleo
  • Charles Esten as Ward Cameron
  • Drew Starkey as Rafe Cameron
  • Austin North as Topper

The supporting cast members returning for season 3 include:

  • Deion Smith Kelce
  • Elizabeth Mitchell as Limbrey
  • Nicholas Cirillo as Barry
  • E. Roger Mitchell as Heyward
  • Terrance Rosemore as Captain Terrance
  • Samantha Soule as Anna Carrera
  • Charles Halford as Big Joh
  • Cullen Moss as Deputy Shoupe
  • Marland Burke as Mike Carrera

Carlacia Grant, who played Cleo in season 2, has been upped to a series regular for the new season. Cleo is officially one of the Pogues in season 3!

Additionally, Madelyn Cline has put any rumors about her involvement to rest, confirming in January 2022 that she will most definitely be in Outer Banks season 3. In case you missed it, gossipers believed she might not be in the show any longer due to her real-life breakup from Chase Stokes. The actress set the record straight on Instagram, writing:

“I will come back for as many seasons as they will have me. I love my job and there’s not a day that goes by that I’m not grateful for it, and for everyone who has watched it.”

On June 23, 2022, Netflix announced three new cast members joining Outer Banks for season 3:

  • Andy McQueen as Carlos Singh, “a ruthless Caribbean Don on a treasure hunt of his own”
  • Lou Ferrigno Jr. as Ryan, “Singh’s top security officer”
  • Fiona Paloma as Sofia, “a self-identified Pogue who forms a close connection to Rafe”

Outer Banks season 3 plot synopsis

Outer Banks season 3 has a lot of interesting dynamics at play. Obviously, the Pogues have to return to the Outer Banks where there will be lots of questions about what happened.

We also know this is very personal now for John B, Sarah, and now Pope. Kie, JJ and Cleo have less interest in getting revenge on the Camerons. There’s also the Shroud that needs to be found.

At the end of Outer Banks season 2, we see Limbrey and Big John (John B’s dad) making a pact. If Limbrey helps John B and his friends, Big John will find the Shroud for Limbrey. Will the Pogues get close with Limbrey? That could be a source of division with Limbrey’s horrible history and how she treated Pope and the Pogues.

We also know that they’re going to go after Ward at some point for the gold and the cross.

There are several romantic relationships in flux right now, as well. John B and Sarah seem solid, but we all can see the chemistry between JJ and Kie. There’s also some chemistry with Cleo and Pope.

There’s a lot to like about the direction of Outer Banks season 3. We know we’re in for another treasure hunt!
