With big ensemble casts like Outer Banks, it almost certainly comes down to salary negotiations. After season 2 of several shows, we saw big salary negotiations for shows like: 13 reasons whyNever have I everand on my block

Speak with Decide Shortly After Season 2 Premiere, Jonas Pate said of the show’s future: “My answer is, as long as we can keep making it right and we’re still excited. That’s the number. Certainly more than three.”

In early December, Chase Stokes said in an interview that he was hopeful but unaware of any extension:

“We have such a talented team of writers and so we always leave it up to them to kind of figure out the story. And every time we get a script it blows our seats off, so I’m just excited to get our hands on when and hopefully Netflix will give us the green light,” he said in December 2021. We’re still patiently waiting, just sitting back and trying to find out when it’s going to happen or if they’re going to call us, if we not getting the call so you know. … We’re in a bit of a limbo right now. Obviously the fans want it, we want to do it, so if the timing is right we’ll see, but fingers crossed.”


What to expect from Season 3 of outer banks on Netflix

If the show is revamped, we can expect the series to continue to take many twists and turns, as we have now become accustomed to in the first 20 episodes.

Let’s quickly recap season 2 of outer banks and where that will lead us to season 3.

The war between the Camerons and the Pogues will likely continue, with Pope likely wanting to retrieve the now-stolen gold cross. Pope, fleeing the big ship, says “it’s not over yet” as they take refuge on a remote deserted island. They decide to stay on the island, but chances are they won’t live long, especially since their family has reported them missing.

Pope will also likely continue to discover his family’s connection to the Santo Domingo cross.

Ward Cameron faked his death in season 2 and is now trying to live off the radar. After a few encounters towards the end of a second season, with John B sparing his life, it’s likely that Ward will continue to play a key role in the future conflict, but will he be caught?

The biggest question in Season 3 is how and why Big John is back. He seems to hint that he knows where the cross of Denmark is, but was diagnosed as being ‘half dead’. What impact will it have in the future? We’ll have to wait.

What have the cast and crew been teasing for a third season? Here’s a summary:

As for Big John, Josh Pate told EW

“John B’s relationship with his father is a huge theme and having his father back close by and eventually they will meet again and John B must reconcile his idealized version of his dead father with the reality of his living father. It gives us a lot of thematic father-son stuff to work with.”

Jonas Pate, Josh Pate and Shannon Burke have also said that while the Pogues are down, they certainly aren’t suggesting that they’re back on the hunt for gold right away.

In terms of the romantic situation in Season 3, Madelyn Cline told ET that hopefully we’ll learn more about their marriage by saying:

“It would be really nice in season 3, if we get one, to see how they really start to get to know each other in a very real sense. They are married, but actually they don’t know that much about each other. I got it I feel like that would be great fun, they’ve clearly been through a lot together.”

Chase Stokes teased with EliteDaily that the new season would have a “vibe shift” in season 3, saying, “The writers like to keep us on our toes, and I think that creates performances that grab you in the moment…I have no idea what’s going on with the hand is beyond what we shot in Barbados,” adding: “I think there will be a lot of loose ends tied up. A lot of questions will be answered. And as usual, these kids will be put through the wringer.”


When is the outer banks season 3 Netflix release date?

There is currently no official Netflix release date for outer banks season 3.

However, thanks to the production schedule of previous seasons, we can already begin to speculate when we will see the next season land.

The second season of outer banks was filmed between August 2020 and April 2021, before being released four months later, in late July 2021. If a similar schedule is followed and there are no delays or issues with the movie schedule, there’s a chance we’ll see season 3 on Netflix in Dec 2022† We expect to see at least outer banks return by February 2023
