Outer Banks has garnered a massive fan following ever since its premiere on Netflix in 2020. The mystery teen drama recently released its third season on the streaming platform, which again met with positive feedback from the audience.
Fans who have binged on the 10-episode third season are now asking for updates on the fourth season. But has Outer Banks been renewed for season 4 on Netflix? Here is everything we know so far.
Will Outer Banks Return with Season 4 on Netflix?
Yes, season 4 of Outer Banks is very much in the works, and the show will be returning on Netflix. The renewal was announced a week ahead of the season 3 premiere by co-creators Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke.
The announcement took place on February 18 at the special event, Poguelander: An Outer Banks Experience, which was attended by the cast and crew, and also saw performances by Lil Baby, Khalid, alt-J, and Elley Duhé.
“Seeing Poguelandia come to life was nothing short of spectacular. The Pogues are enjoying an adventure of a lifetime, and we now get to map out more twists and turns as the joyride continues into season four of Outer Banks. Thank you to Netflix, our cast, and the amazing fans who helped to make this happen,” said the creators confirming season 4.
“This is an incredible moment for all of us. To our cast and crew, thank you so much for all of your hard work. There’s all this action and adventure, but it’s really about the bond between the friends,” Shannon Burke added.
When will Outer Banks Season 4 Premiere?
At the time of writing, the release date for the next season has not been announced by Netflix. The show premiered in April 2020, followed by its second season in July 2021 and the third season in February 2023. Considering that the production takes more than a year, we can expect Outer Banks season 4 to debut by the summer of 2024.
“Season 4 details and additional information will be shared at a later time,” Netflix said in a statement. “The hit series held the #1 spot globally in Netflix’s Top 10 English TV list for the 4 weeks following its Season 2 launch on July 30, 2021, and in the Top 10 for 6 weeks; it reached the Top 10 in 74 countries,” the streaming service added.
Outer Banks Season 4: Storyline and Star Cast
While the creators have remained tight-lipped on the potential storyline of the fourth season, the story is expected to continue revolving around the treasure hunt. By the end of season 3, Sarah and John B settled their surf shop, but then a stranger visited them with a manuscript about the captain’s log of pirate Blackbeard.
John B is then seen smirking, which hints that he is ready to go on another adventurous journey and will surely take his gang with him. As for the star cast, the upcoming season will continue to star Chase Stokes as John B, Madelyn Cline as Sarah, Rudy Pankow as JJ, Madison Bailey as Kiara, Jonathan Daviss as Pope, and Carlacia Grant as Cleo.
Outer Banks seasons 1 to 3 are streaming on Netflix. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
