Outer Banks, which won the best drama and male TV star prizes at the People’s Choice Awards, has gained a reputation as one of the top teen drama series since its premiere in April 2020. The Pogues requested a season 3 as soon as possible as its progenitor left at a dramatic finale after returning for the eagerly anticipated second season in July 2020. Here is a summary of Outer Banks season 3 that includes all the information you need about the program.
When was Outer Banks’ third season officially confirmed?
An official renewal was revealed on December 7, 2021, clearing the supporters’ confusion and sparking their enthusiasm. This announcement cut through the false rumor cloud. The Outer Banks renewal was announced on the official Netflix Twitter account, which read:
“This just in from Poguelandia…
Outer Banks will be back for a third season!”
What will happen in Season 3 of Outer Banks?
While it is anticipated that the conflict between the Camerons and Pogues will continue in the third season as well, Pope’s admonition that “It’s not over” heightens the suspense for viewers that will only be realized in the third season. Season 2 ended with the news that John B’s father is still alive after being split up on the island. This begs numerous questions about how and why Big John has returned and what he intends to do.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, John Pate had the following to say about Big John:
“John B’s relationship with his dad is a huge theme and having his dad back around and eventually they’re going to meet back up and John B has to reconcile his idealized version of his dead dad with the reality of his alive dad. It gives us a lot of thematic father-son stuff to work with.”
Actor Madelyn Cline made a hint to ET that season 3 would focus more on their marriage, which is a more romantic development. Cline stated:
“It’d be really fun in season 3, if we get one, to see them actually start to truly get to know each other in a very real sense. They’re married, but they actually kind of don’t know a whole lot about each other. I feel like that would be really fun. They’ve obviously been through a lot together.”
Additionally, in an interview with Elite Daily, Chase Stokes hinted at a “vibe shift” in season 3. The writers really try to keep us on our toes, and I think it produces performances that hook you at the moment, according to Stokes. Beyond what we’ve shot in Barbados, I have no idea what’s going on.
I believe that many loose ends will be tied, he continued. Many questions will be resolved. And as usual, these children will be subjected to harsh treatment.
Has work on the third season of Outer Banks started?
The third season of Outer Banks is said to have started production in Charleston, South Carolina, in accordance with the shooting dates. Rolling started on February 16 and ran through August 19 of 2022. They started rolling on February 15, according to a post on Instagram by Valerie Weiss on February 14, 2022. The caption on the picture read:
“Big love to my @obx family as they begin shooting Season 3 tomorrow!!!! See ya’ll soon!”
In Barbados, the filming was finished on August 31. Charles Esten published a photo on Instagram with the caption:
“Last Night in Barbados! 3 weeks shooting Season 3 of @obx in this extraordinary paradise, but now it’s time to go home. More to shoot in Charleston, but at this moment, I could not be more grateful for this amazing job that keeps bringing me here, or the wildly talented and deeply kind cast and crew I get to work with every day. VERY thankful, too, for all the incredible Bajans that have made us feel so welcome here! Put Barbados on your bucket list. You won’t be sorry!”
When will Netflix release the third season of Outer Banks?
At the time this article was written, Outer Banks’ official release date had not been announced. We do know that we will be able to see the Pogues in 2023, though. However, Madelyn Cline accidentally gave away the launch date of the upcoming episode of Outer Banks season 3—February 23, 2023, during the Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery at the London Film Festival. We think Madelyn Cline was correct, despite the fact that Netflix itself hasn’t confirmed the date.
