If you're like us, you're already wondering, "When will Outer Banks season 3 be on Netflix?" even though Outer Banks season 2 just hit the streaming platform.

It's hard to be patient, especially when it comes to your favorite TV shows, so we're here to fill you in on your go-to YA thriller and what to expect next.

*Fair warning: spoilers ahead!*



When will Outer Banks season 3 be on Netflix?

What we don't know: when Outer Banks season 3 will hit Netflix...or if it's even been renewed, for that matter. What we do know? We know that we have questions! Lots and lots of unanswered questions, courtesy of season 2. 

Given that so many plot points have been left unanswered—and based on the popularity of the show—it's safe to assume Netflix will not deny us another trip to the Outer Banks.

Who will be in the Outer Banks cast for season 3?

Although we cannot say for certain who will return to the binge-worthy series, we have a feeling we can catch the following characters in the forthcoming third season. Fingers crossed!

  • Madison Bailey (Kiara)
  • Jonathan Daviss (Pope)
  • Rudy Pankow (JJ)
  • Pogues Carlacia Grant (Cleo)
  • Chase Stokes (John B)
  • Madelyn Cline (Sarah)
  • Drew Starkey (Rafe)
  • Charles Esten (Ward)
  • Austin North (Topper)

Catch up on Outer Banks season 2 cliffhangers

To backtrack a bit, the premise of the show focuses on a group of teens (Pogues) from a poor North Carolina neighborhood that searches for a $400 million treasure. There's adventure, romance, and of course, turbulence—especially when one of the character's father's (John B. Sr.) gets involved. 

Fast-forward to season 2, when things take an interesting turn. 

"New friends also bring new foes as they’re back on the trail of the gold, while the stakes for Kiara, Pope, and JJ rapidly escalate at home," reads a Netflix press release. "The $400 million is still in the game, but will the uncovering of a new-found secret reunite the group for a fresh mission? The adventure of a lifetime awaits, but uncharted waters ahead mean our Pogues must do all they can to make it out alive."

Learn more about the questions we hope the third season will answer. (*Seriously, spoilers ahead!*)

1. Does John B die in Outer Banks season 2?

We've been led to believe that John B Routledge is deceased, but as it turns out, he's actually in hiding. Will he be able to contact his family, and if so, what will happen when he does?

2. Does Ward Cameron go to jail?

The selfish, malicious Ward Cameron seems willing to do anything to get his hands on what he thinks he deserves. Since he has taken responsibility for the murders, will Ward be able to get back to the police that he faked his own death? What will happen now that he's injured?

3. Will the Pogues be able to survive?

Searching for the treasure hasn't been an easy feat, but now the Pogues really have their work cut out for them on the abandoned island where they have next to nothing to help them. Will they be able to survive? 

And—just as importantly—will new love interests surface during all of this? (C'mon, you know you're curious, too!)
