Outer Banks Season 2 is proving to be a huge hit on Netflix, but does this mean we can expect Season 3’s release date to be revealed soon?
Well, that’s the question I want to try and answer for you in this article.
Outer Banks Season 3 hasn’t been officially announced yet by Netflix.
That said, this doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen.
If anything, no news is better than bad news, and given the show’s popularity, I’m pretty certain Netflix has already got work on Season 3 underway.
I have reached out to Netflix for comment on Season 3, and all they had to say was this:
I’m afraid we don’t have any information on S3 at this point.
Again, this does not mean that they are not working on Season 3 of Outer Banks as we speak.
Is Season 3 in the works at Netflix?
So, as I said before, given the fact that Outer Banks has been performing incredibly well on Netflix, I am 99.99% certain that Season 3 will be announced very soon.
The people involved in the series are also pretty confident that they’ll get to make more seasons of the show.
Co-creator and executive producer Jonas Pate told Decider the following:
My answer is, as long as we can keep making it good and we’re still excited. That’s the number. Definitely more than three.
Outer Banks’ cast and crew seem to think Season 3 will happen
Even the show’s cast and crew have opened up about Season 3 and offered theories on what could happen in it.
Josh Pate, for instance, told EW that Big John’s return will be a huge part of Season 3.
John B’s relationship with his dad is a huge theme and having his dad back around and eventually they’re going to meet back up and John B has to reconcile his idealized version of his dead dad with the reality of his alive dad. It gives us a lot of thematic father-son stuff to work with.
Chase Stokes, who plays John B told TV Line:
It was his choice to go out and leave his son, and what does that look like? What does it look like when a kid comes face-to-face with a parent who’s left and chose to put him in these circumstances and has no idea what has happened in the meantime?
When could Season 3’s release date on Netflix be?
OK, so let’s get onto the subject of when the third season could be released on the streaming platform.
Well, the good news is that seasons of Outer Banks seem to be filmed and edited very quickly.
This means that as soon as Netflix gives them the greenlight on Season 3, they could get things moving very quickly.
My guess would be that Outer Banks Season 3 could be released as early as next year.
2022 would be ideal for the show and for its many fans.
Now, when in 2022? I would guess either the middle or towards the end of the year.
Summer 2022 would be perfect for Outer Banks Season 3, but I’m not sure that they could hit that release date.
Whatever happens, expect the third season of the show to be released sooner rather than later.
