The rumor mill about Outer Banks season 2 has been active online recently, and we have some good news to share with fans. We wanted to make sure that fans have the most up-to-date information about the new season of the Netflix original series.
The cast and crew recently wrapped production on Outer Banks season 2 in April 2021. It seems like, around that time, fans thought the new season was going to hit Netflix. We can’t tell where the rumors started, but it appears fans were assuming that season 2 would be released one year after the first season.
For many shows, that makes sense, but OBX season 2 was filmed during the pandemic, which has complicated matters.
Outer Banks season 2 release date
So, we know those rumors about Outer Banks season 2 coming in April 2021 weren’t true. We also know the new season isn’t coming to Netflix in May 2021, either.
The earliest we’ll see Outer Banks season 2 on Netflix is sometime this summer, which is in line with some of the other rumors we’ve been seeing online.
The production timeline for Outer Banks season 2 is a little weird. It was reported that filming had ended in January 2021, which would have made a late spring or summer release date rather likely.
Instead, production continued through April 2021, so we’ve had to shift our release date expectations a little bit.
With that said, Outer Banks actor Johnny Alonso tweeted a video with a caption that the new season was coming this summer. Alonso was in Burbank doing ADR, according to the video.

That’s really good news! With ADR happening, post-production is fully underway and progress is being made. We’re still in early May, so if they’re as far along as it seems, Outer Banks season 2 could definitely be released this summer sometime.
I don’t think it will be released on Netflix in, say, June, necessarily, but a late July release date may be possible.
Since we learned production on Outer Banks season 2 wrapped last month, we’ve been expecting an August or September release date at the earliest. Netflix hadn’t been moving so quickly with new shows and movies during the pandemic, so that’s why we factored an extra month or so in the release date prediction.
So, I think we can still expect Outer Banks season 2 in August or September 2021. Wouldn’t it be perfect if Netflix dropped Outer Banks season 2 over labor day weekend? I know I’d use that extra day off to watch and re-watch the new season.
For now, expect to see Outer Banks season 2 this summer. We’ll let you know if Netflix announces any news about the new season or the release date.Next: Best Netflix shows coming in 2021
