Here’s the Deal With ‘Outer Banks’ Season 2, for You, Person Who Is Obsessed

It happened to me: A few months ago, I watched the entirety of Netflix’s Outer Banks in one day. To be clear, this means I spent 10 full hours staring at my TV while a bunch of murderous, horny teens hunted for gold. But now that I’ve preemptively blown my Outer Banks wad, I have nothing to look forward to in my life other than cheese, the end of this pandemic, and—ah, yes—season 2. Here’s the deal with the second installment of this blessed mess.

Also, caution: There are spoilers below!

First, a Quick Recap of Season 1

Outer Banks is about a group of friends known as the Pogues, led by John B. Why his name isn’t just “John” remains a mystery to me, but IT’S JOHN B, OKAY? Anyway, turns out John B’s dad mysteriously disappeared while hunting for $400 million worth of gold that was lost at sea during a shipwreck. You’ve probably guessed what’s coming next: The Pogues end up finding the treasure while bodies pile up around them, and pretty much everyone is not who they seem. The show ends with John B getting falsely accused of murder, hopping on a boat with his girlfriend, and being chased into the eye of a storm by police. Not at all dramatic!

So Is There Gonna Be a Second Season?

YOU BET THERE WILL BE! Netflix confirmed the exciting news way back in July, and I don’t know about you, but I’m absolutely thrilled at the possibility of seeing my favorite Pogues and Kooks back on my screen once again.

And if you’re wondering who’s coming back for the new season, don’t worry guys: all your favorites are expected to make their big returns. In short: expect new tea to be spilled by Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow, and Austin North among all the rest of our fave side characters.

The Good News? We Might Get Many More Seasons

Showrunner Jonas Pate told USA Today that he was writing season 2 while in quarantine and that he envisions the show as a “four-season novel.” He also mentioned that Outer Banks will likely take place in the Bahamas: “There would be a couple episodes that take place, at least partially, in the Bahamas—it unfolds into a bigger mystery. We keep our old villains and we add some new ones. But it always comes back to the Outer Banks.”

If there’s any clue to use for some leverage, the show did drop a photo around the same time as the renewal with this caption: “See you in the bahamas ✌️.” Does this mean we’re about to take a trip with the cast? We’ll let you know when we find out.

The show just finished filming.

While we were all concerned COVID-19 would impact the shooting schedule for season 2, the cast and crew were able to make it happen. Filming for the sophomore season actually started back in September, and after six months of production, the show officially wrapped in early April. As Madelyn Cline posted to her IG, it looks like there were lots of beaches, food, safety precautions, and a blossoming love affair.
