The third season of Outer Banks has finished filming; Netflix will release it in 2023. Here is an updated summary of everything we currently know about Outer Banks season 3, including the three new cast members, filming dates, what to anticipate from the storyline, and more. The juvenile criminal drama series made its premiere in April 2020 and returned in July 2020 for a much-anticipated second season. The programme has received numerous nominations for accolades throughout the course of its run, including the prestigious best drama and best male TV star honours at the People’s Choice Awards after season 2.
When was Season 3 of Outer Banks renewed?
The series was officially renewed in December 2021, debunking rumours that it had been canceled, including one that went viral on Facebook. On December 7th, a message from the cast was released along with the renewal. The OBX (short for Outer Banks) 3 logo was also revealed in some artwork that accompanied the season 3 announcement.
Outer Banks Season 3 cast list?
As part of the renewal, Jonas Pate, Josh Pate, and Shanon Burke will return as showrunners and executive producers, according to a press release obtained by What’s on Netflix. Additionally, we are aware of the important cast members who will return for season 3:
Carlacia Grant (upped to season regular for season 3 after debuting in season 2)
Three new, significant castings for Outer Banks season 3 were announced in June 2022 through Deadline. The brand-new cast that will appear coming ahead consists of:
Carlos Singh, a Caribbean Don who is bright, cultured, and cunning and who is on his own treasure hunt, will be portrayed by Andy MacQueen (Station Eleven).
Sofia will be portrayed by Fiona Palomo (Control Z on Netflix), a Pogue who secretly wishes to fit in with the country club crowd. She begins to develop a strong bond with Rafe since she is likeable and resourceful.
In season 3, Ryan will be portrayed by Star Girl’s Lou Ferrigno Jr. He is Singh’s chief enforcer and security officer. He is described as calm and composed but young and hungry. He has enough experience to maintain his composure, but he is also aware of the consequences of failure. Additionally, casting calls for bartenders, waitstaff, mature Kooks and Pogues, Kook Dads, and some photo doubles were made public. Additionally, IMDb claims that a few smaller casting decisions have been made for the upcoming season, including:
Rick Perez as Ted
Art Newkirk as Officer Henderson
Angela Lentz as Cruise Ship Patron
Drew Broderick as a Security Guard
How did the second season of Outer Banks fare on Netflix?
The show garnered 322.59 million global Netflix viewing hours between July 26 and September 5, 2021, earning a spot in Netflix’s new top 10 metrics. For the first four weeks following its premiere on Netflix, it ranked first. The show peaked at number 8 on the IMDBPro MovieMeter, which ranks the most popular shows on the website. Why is a renewal being delayed? Although we don’t officially know why the renewal took so long, we can speculate based on previous renewals that also took some time. Salary talks are almost probably becoming less important for shows with large ensemble casts like Outer Banks. After the second season of several shows, we witnessed significant wage disputes for programmes like 13 Reasons Why, Never Have I Ever, and On My Block.
When will the third season of Outer Banks be available on Netflix?
According to the season 3 shooting dates, filming would take place in Charleston, South Carolina, starting on February 16th, 2022, and continuing until August 19th, 2022. Season 3 of Outer Banks will feature many episodes directed by Valerie Weiss, one of which was filmed over the course of one night in early August 2022. On February 28th, Netflix made a formal announcement with fresh cast photos showing work was still proceeding. The show had been under development for about a week at that point. Throughout the summer of 2022, Outer Banks season 3 was still being filmed.
The Pogues would return in 2023, though no precise date was announced, according to Netflix Tudum. Making her appearance at the Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery premiere at the London Film Festival, Madelyn Cline revealed in a widely shared video that the Netflix series will return on February 23, 2023. You can view the entire ITN video here. Cline was abruptly prodded and probably looked down to indicate that she wasn’t permitted to give the date. Of course, Netflix hasn’t officially confirmed the date, and release dates are always open to change.
