Outer Banks season 3 has been filmed, but when will it release?
In recent times, Netflix s’ attempt to push out teenage-centric content has generated quite the buzz. The streaming site has craked the code with a show like Stranger Things, On My Block, and Heartstopper.
The success has only sped up this genre s conveyer belt with another hit series, Outer Banks.
The show’s premise is set along the outer banks of North Carolina, where a social divide and marginalization lie between rich and poor. The stark contrast between the working-class Pogues and the rich Kooks is easily identifiable.
The plot follows a bunch of Pogue teenagers residing on the coastal barrier island of the town called The Cut who is determined to solve the mystery behind the disappearance of their leader John B s’ father.
They find out a treasure chest connected to the missing father of John B, which sets off a chain of events-filled with secrets.
Can the Pogues find their way in the class warfare town to search for their group leader s’ father while overcoming hurdles such as money, betrayal, and love is the central plot of the show.
Outer Banks has completed two seasons and is received well by both critics and fans. The teenage adventure drama has its fair share of mystery and love stories which keeps the viewers engaged.
Likable characters are another positive for the show, alongside the subplots that have meaning and an overlying sense of adventure that is highly nostalgic.
The cast of outer banks has completed filming the new episodes while fans are theorizing about what could happen next.
Season two ended on a bittersweet note that has us demanding answers; we know the upcoming season is on its way but when will it release?
WHAT IS THE OUTER BANKS SEASON 3 RELEASE DATE?
The first season of Outer Banks premiered on 15th April 2020 and ran for ten episodes. Outer Banks season two was released on 30th July 2021, with an episode count of 10.
On 8th December 2021, Netflix announced a series renewal for the third season and released a graphic depicting the acronym OBX3, which stands for Outer Banks season 3.The show s’ Instagram page confirmed the commencement of production on 28th February 2022.
As of writing, there is no update from the showrunners or Netflix on the outer banks season three release date.
But that doesn’t stop us from probing as one look at the past production schedule, It’s easier to work out and make an educated guess on when the third season could come out. We know that production on season two started in August 2020 and wrapped in April 2021, so we can safely assume that production will take around eight months.
It was reported earlier that filming for the third season has already been completed. Considering the eight-month production time, Outer Banks season 3 could premiere in the first quarter of 2023.
Although squeezing a December 2022 Outer Banks season 3 release date can’t be ruled out either. Either way, an Outer banks season 3 trailer should drop in the next few months.
OUTER BANKS SEASON 3 PLOT
It’s been more than a year since we last saw John B and his friends on their treasure hunting adventure as our favorite Pogue survived a shootout abroad the coastal venture and escaped on a lifeboat.
The season two finale also gave us a big reveal, i.e., John B’s dad, played by Charles Halford, is alive after being presumed dead for two senior seasons.
The whole plot revolved around John B wanting to avenge his dead father and whether a father and son reunion is on the horizon is the most asked question post-season two.
Carlacia Grant promised twists and turns in the new season as she recently spoke about how her character Cleo will evolve in outer bank season three.
Speaking to Hollywood life, Grant said that all of season two’s cliffhangers would make, and there are going to be many things that haven’t been well explained, which will be explained in season three.
Cleo officially joined the Pogue life after successfully escaping the evil Camerons at the end of outer banks season two.In season three, we will see how the transition of Cleo happens in the Pogue life.
Outer banks had some fantastic couples with shippers going crazy, especially the most famous couple of John B and Sarah, who had the classic romance trope.
Many viewers felt their love story was rushed, but they had been through so much together that their feelings for each other escalated in the past two seasons.
While they aren’t legally married yet despite the proposal, some fans think a real wedding awaits at the end of the new season, or perhaps a plot twist on fans and make them break up.
WILL THERE BE OUTER BANKS SEASON 4?
More often than not, series or shows get renewed for multiple instalments due to their financial success and viewership numbers on the streaming platform.
Let’s crunch some numbers up and find out if Outer Banks Season 4 could be a possibility or not. Outer banks season 2 did incredibly well as far as the numbers are concerned, and it’s also had an amazing reception from the viewers.
