Netflix's Outer Banks: Everything We Know About Season 2

Culture

Everybody's favorite show of 2020 is back for another season! John B and the pogues will be hitting our screens on Netflix for a second season.

The show aired in April 2020 and quickly became one of the most popular shows of the year, due to its exciting pace and its great plot. Teens living on an island divided by wealth, add on top of that a mystery of finding the ship that disappeared, as well as the desire to find its expensive contents, and you’ve got Outer Banks.

Release date

Outer Banks became all the rage last year, and it’s no wonder! Due to that, it’s no surprise that the show shortly after its success got renewed for a second season.

The stars of the show had been filming (safely) from September 2020 and officially had wrapped up shooting the season as of April 2021. There are no official release dates yet but with the news that they've wrapped for season 2, we can expect to see the official announcement arising shortly. To make an estimate until we get the official release date, we can probably expect to see the second season air in late 2021.

Recap Of Season One (Spoiler Alert!)

The pogues spent their time cracking the case and mystery of not only John B’s father's disappearance but finishing what he was working on, finding the Royal Merchant. Enemies that were trying to uncover this mystery while covering their own tracks.

It’s no surprise that this all came undone when it was revealed that Ward Cameron knew more about this than he let on and twisted the situation entirely, painting out John B to be the bad guy. John B, essentially becoming the most wanted person on the Outer Banks had to plot his escape and get off the island with Sarah Cameron.

The finale ends with the pair escaping authorities by boat in the middle of a thunderstorm and a dramatic moment where they sink and get stranded in the middle of the ocean. The final scene concludes with a ship picking up the pair and claiming to take them to the Bahamas.

What’s the plot for season 2?

Well, given that the last episode left us on a cliffhanger it’s likely that it’ll pick up right where it left off with John B and Sarah heading out to the Bahamas. Theories are circulating that maybe, just maybe John B’s father is still out there. If those theories are true, we’ll likely find out if or when John B and Sarah make it to the Bahamas.

We can expect to see the remaining Outer banks pogues JJ, Kie, and Pope. As they deal with the uncertainty of John B’s whereabouts, will they band together or fall apart?

What’s next for outer banks?

To all the eager OBX fans out there, hold on because it’s not going to end here. The writers of Outer Banks aren’t finished with it just yet!
