Outer Banks fans rejoice – Season 4 of the hit Netflix drama is coming in just a few short weeks! After nearly a two year wait since the season 3 finale aired in Feb 2023, the fourth installment of the Peabody Award-winning show will return with 10 thrilling new episodes in early 2024.
Exact premiere dates haven’t been formally announced yet, but rumors suggest we could see the Pogues back on our screens as soon as February. Production wrapped up earlier this fall after five months of filming in Charleston, South Carolina, the picturesque backdrop that brings the OBX world to life.
Leads Chase Stokes (John B.), Madelyn Cline (Sarah Cameron), Madison Bailey (Kiara), Jonathan Daviss (Pope), Rudy Pankow (JJ), and Austin North (Topper) will all reprise their roles as the tight-knit group of friends searching for lost treasure and non-stop adventure in the Outer Banks.
Season 3 ended on a major cliffhanger with John B. and Sarah rescued from a deserted island, but the rest of the Pogues fearing the worst about their friends’ fates. The new season promises to resolve that mystery while also unraveling new secrets, backstories, romances, and of course, dangerous misadventures.
Is Outer Banks Season 4 Out?
Creator and showrunner Jonas Pate says fans can look forward to the Pogues reuniting, exploring the CAM-teen relationship, delving into John B.’s past, and embarking on an exciting new hunt for gold with stakes higher than ever before. The season will continue themes of friendship and love while cranking up the action, mystery, and teen angst.
Ever since the first season debuted in April 2020 just as the COVID-19 pandemic began, Outer Banks has been a breakout hit as one of Netflix’s most watched original series. With its intriguing plot, dynamic characters, and picturesque coastal Carolina setting, the show garnered a passionate fanbase and over 2 billion streaming hours viewed.

is Outer Banks Season 4 Coming?
The compelling coming-of-age story struck a chord with viewers through relatable characters and high-stakes drama. Fans eagerly anticipate season 4 to continue the Pogues’ story as they straddle adolescence and fight to protect their homes and lifestyle in the wake of gentrification in the OBX.
So mark your calendars and get ready to return to the shores of the Outer Banks soon! We expect an official season 4 announcement from Netflix any day now confirming the exact release date and satiating fans’ cravings for more Pogues adventures in this addicting teen soap series. It’s sure to be another epic, binge-worthy ride!
When Outer Banks first hit Netflix in April 2020, it became an instant fan favorite. The coming of age drama follows a tight-knit group of teenagers in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, known as the “Pogues”, as they go on the hunt for missing treasure linked to the disappearance of the ringleader John B’s father.
How Many Episodes Are In Outer Banks Season 3?
Season 3 consisted of 10 action-packed episodes that culminated with John B and his star-crossed lover Sarah Cameron stranded at sea on a boat during a tropical storm, their fates unknown. This thrilling cliffhanger left fans longing for more adventures with the Pogues when season 3 dropped over a year later in Feb 2023.
So how many episodes are in Outer Banks season 3? The second season matches the first with 10 episodes ranging from 42 to 63 minutes run times. That gave devoted “Pogues” fans 10 more opportunities to immerse themselves in the friends’ lives for almost 9 more hours of content.
Some of the main plot points explored across the 10 episodes include:
- John B and Sarah are stranded on a deserted island and must fight to survive while their friends mount a rescue mission back in the Outer Banks
- Ward Cameron covers up Sarah’s “death” causing turmoil with her brother Rafe and sister Wheezie
- A new hunter emerges searching for the Royal Merchant gold
- John B reconnects with his long lost father who clues him into the origins of their family treasure
- The friends embark on new adventures and mysteries seeking a legendary cross that could lead them to 400 million dollars of gold
- Tensions boil between the working class Pogues and wealthy Kooks, causing rifts in the community
While 10 episodes may seem short for a highly bingeable show like Outer Banks, season 3 expands the world and relationships of the teen characters. And the finale leaves things open for more treasure hunting escapades when an inevitable season 4 drops.
What Day Will Season 4 Of Outer Banks Come Out?
For fans who can’t get enough Pogues content, the Outer Banks social media accounts regularly share amusing behind-the-scenes tidbits to satiate your OBX cravings between seasons. And leads Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline and the rest of the talented young cast generate buzz with their own personal accounts as well.
So while we only got 10 episodes in season 3, they were jam-packed with new characters, thrilling action sequences, blossoming romances, and touching moments of friendship. And the inviting, aesthetically pleasing backdrop of the Carolina coast will have you wishing you were right there with the Pogues on their adventures.
With strong viewership and ratings, we fully expect to return to the sandy shores of the Outer Banks with 10 or more new episodes in a highly-anticipated season 3. Though with the Covid-related filming delays, fans will likely have to hold on until late 2023 or early 2024 for their next Pogues fix. But it’s bound to be worth the wait for more of this addictive, engaging teen drama series set in a unique paradise-like locale.
So let the countdown begin for season 4 and look out for the official renewal announcement from Netflix soon! Until then, catch up on seasons 1 and 2 to analyze all the small details and easter eggs you may have missed the first time binging this surprise hit show.
