Outer Banks Season 3 Release Date Announced
Netflix has confirmed that all 10 episodes of Outer Banks season 3 will be dropping on the streaming platform on Thursday, February 23. Some new stills were also launched, which show John B., Sarah, Kiara, Pope, JJ, and their new friend Cleo stranded on the deserted island they have dubbed ‘Poguelandia’.
The official synopsis for season 3 reads, “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, 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.”
Showrunners Say Stakes Will Go Up in the New Season
Outer Banks creators and executive producers Jonas Pate, Josh Pate, and Shannon Burke have teased what to expect from the next season and said that stakes would be ramping up for the group. “The Pogues realize that their adventures in the first two seasons were merely the prelude to the granddaddy of all treasure hunts,” the creators said.
“The cast have been fast friends in real life pretty much from the very beginning, and it’s been so gratifying to see those connections deepen over the years we’ve worked on the show. They are truly Pogues for Life,” they added.
