Luckily, Netflix renewed Outer Banks for season 2 shortly after the season premiered!
It took a bit longer than expected for Netflix to renew the popular Netflix original series for another season, but we’re glad it finally happened!More from Netflix Originals

Outer Banks will be filming soon, hopefully, so below, we shared everything you’ll want to know about the Outer Banks season 2 release date, cast, trailer and more!
Outer Banks season 2 release date
There was some hope that Outer Banks season 2 would be released on Netflix sometime this spring. That’s not going to happen, unfortunately.
Outer Banks season 2 started production on Aug. 31, 2020. That was much later than we were expecting, but the pandemic caused a major delay in filming.
We learned from the cast that production on Outer Banks season 2 wrapped in April 2021. We thought filming had wrapped in January, so we were initially hoping that Outer Banks season 2 would be released as early as July.
We’re still pretty confident that we’ll see OBX season 2 sometime this year, but it might be a little later than July. Typically, we expect there will be at least a four-month gap from the end of production before a new season is released. It can be longer, but four months is about the minimum that we expect because of all things that go into releasing a show in different languages around the world.
So, if that’s the case, we could see Outer Banks season 2 in August or September 2021. That’s probably the best-case scenario for this show. It could arrive later in the year, but given the summer vibes of the show, I think Netflix will want to get it released sometime in Q3 (July-September).
We’ll let you know the official release date for season 2 when we find out!
Outer Banks season 2 cast
Netflix has confirmed most of the main cast for Outer Banks season 2. Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline, who play John B and Sarah in the series, will surely be back in the new season.
We can expect the rest of the cast who plays the Pogues will be back, including Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, and Rudy Pankow.
Charles Esten, Austin North, Drew Starkey, and Deion Smith will also be back in the new season.
Julia Antonelli and Caroline Arapoglou should be back as well.
According to a report from Deadline, Lost and Once Upon A Time alum Elizabeth Mitchell joins the cast for Outer Banks season 2. Mitchell plays Limbrey, who sounds like a villain!
Deadline also confirmed Carlacia Grant has joined the cast for season 2. Grant plays Cleo in the new season.
We can also expect to see a few new characters in the new season. We know the show is headed for the Caribbean, and there’s likely more treasure to be found somewhere. Our favorite treasure hunters will surely be hot on the trail. If they can find one, they can find more!
Outer Banks season 2 plot synopsis
Netflix has not released the Outer Banks season 2 synopsis yet. We have a pretty good idea where the new season will begin, though.
John B and Sarah are headed for the Bahamas where they will attempt to steal the treasure, which was stolen from them by Sarah’s dad, Ward. That’s a must this season. We know the cast and crew went to the Caribbean to film scenes for season 2, so we know this storyline will play out somehow in season 2.
In addition, we have to assume the Pogues, who believe John B and Sarah to be dead, will seek some kind of revenge on Rafe, Topper, Ward, and the rest of the people responsible for John B’s death. Bailey confirmed that plan for revenge in an interview with Seventeen.
That’s the jumping-off point for the new season! After that, it’s going to be wild!
Outer Banks season 2 trailer
The trailer for Outer Banks season 2 has not been released yet. We’ll share the trailer as soon as it’s available.
We did get a cool video from the cast announcing the season 2 renewal!
