I can’t wait to see what happens next! In April 2020, Outer Banks premiered on Netflix and has been eagerly awaited ever since for the next chapter.
The streaming platform confirmed that a second season of the teen drama was in the works just three months after it premiered. The Outer Banks’ official Instagram account teased, “See you in the Bahamas,” at the time.
According to showrunner Jonas Pate in April 2020, “Netflix had greenlit” the team to begin work on season 2 scripts “before [season 1] even came out” because “we always viewed it as something that was probably like four seasons, maybe five seasons show, but definitely four seasons.”
John B. (Chase Stokes) and Sarah (Madelyn Cline) are attempting to flee the police after John B.’s father (Charles Esten) frames him for murder in the final episode of the first season. However, fans should not rule out a triumphant return to the islands despite their escape from North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
Pate told the outlet that the Pogues believe John B. and Sarah have been murdered. This gave us the opportunity to explore some dramatic possibilities before we were able to bring them back together,” he says. Having the Pogues together is a highlight of the show for us. This is when we think the show is at its most effective.
“There will definitely be some new mysteries and some new ideas,” the producer continued. When it all comes together, it all stems from a single narrative thread, but it twists and turns in unexpected directions.
All three Pogues who starred with Stokes in season 1 are returning for season 2: J. J. Pankow, Pope Jonathan Daviss, and Kiara Madison Bailey. All of the original cast members, including Cline and Esten, are returning, as well, as are Austin North (Topper), Drew Starkey (Kelce).
It was confirmed in May of 2021 when Netflix released the first official images from the up-and-coming season that new episodes will air that summer on their service. Cline hopes that most of the audience will remain spoiler-free, despite the many theories that fans have about what the characters will get into in season 2.
As she stated to Entertainment Tonight in November of 2020, “I want people to watch this without knowing too much”. As the stakes rise and the mystery deepens, “I want people [to be] going into it kind of blind, but the mystery deepens.”

Which Cast Members Are Returning?
We can expect to see a slew of familiar faces from the first season returning for the upcoming episodes.
Are There New Characters?
“Cleo” is a local “whose world collides with the Pogues,” as reported by Deadline in April 2021. Roots actress Carlacia Grant was tapped to join the original cast as Cleo. One of the Lost cast’s most memorable characters, Limbrey (Liz Mitchell), will be played by Lost alum Elizabeth Mitchell.
“It’s a beautiful, talented cast. An amazing group of people. Filming in the lap of luxury “On Instagram, Mitchell shared a post shortly after she was announced as a cast member for season 2. “As well as a character I’m eager to introduce you to.”
What’s the Story?
In season 2, “we’ve turned up the dial on everything fans loved about season 1—more mystery; more romance; and higher stakes,” the show’s executive producers previously said. “It’s a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled ride…. For the time being, all we can say is strap yourself in because this is going to be one wild ride.”
However, one major plot point was revealed by Cline, who otherwise remained mum on what fans can expect from the upcoming season. According to her statement to Entertainment Tonight in November of 2020, “there is a micro time jump,” which confirms that there will be more fun and shocking adventures ahead.
When Was it Filmed?
Season 2 wrapped up in April 2021, and several cast members took to social media to reflect on the experience. “There is no doubt that this season has been an exhausting one. In honour of the best team in the industry. Sincerely, Even for those who arrive before we begin and those who remain after we have finished, this is not an easy show to put on. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! “At the time, Stokes wrote on Instagram. “It’s sad, but I’m proud of this season nonetheless. I can’t wait to share it with you all. I adore each and every one of you. That’s all there is to it. We’re on our way to OBX2. JB is out..”
“Can’t wait for you guys to see the amazing work our entire cast and crew did this season #obx #obx2,” wrote Daviss in a heartfelt goodbye to Barbados, where the series was filmed.
It was revealed in the first season 2 trailer released by Netflix that JJ, Pope, and Kiara believe John B and Sarah are no longer alive. Carved into the trunk of a tree are the names of three friends whose deaths have been falsely attributed to natural causes. meanwhile, on a Bahamian beach, John B. and Sarah. are still alive and ready to continue their quest for the gold from season one. It’s time to get back in the G-Game, baby,” John B tells his girlfriend before flashes of action, drama, and trouble appear on the screen.
Esten hinted that Ward’s antics in season 2 would be repeated. “I believe he was sincere. Despite his good intentions, he was unable to accomplish his goal. Possibly, his judgement isn’t up to snuff, though “In July 2021, just before the release of new episodes, he told Us exclusively. “A series of decisions led to him being cornered, and he was unable to escape. Writing a second season that escalates from a first season as crazy as that one is difficult. The stakes are raised to new heights in [Season 2]. Things are about to get even crazier!”
