While you get desperate in anticipation of Outer Banks Season 3, here’s everything we know so far about its upcoming season.
Will There Be Outer Banks Season 3?
The first season of the Netflix teen drama aired in April of 2020. And Netflix announced the show’s renewal for a second season in July same year. However, it has been more than four months since the release of Outer Banks Season 2, which was in July 2021. Still, there has been no official announcement about the release date or even the confirmation of a third season.
During an interview, show creator Jonas Pate explained that his vision of the show is of four to five seasons. However, he was waiting for a green signal from the streaming service. Whether the show will return for a season 3 or not is for Netflix to decide. But considering the high viewership that Outer Banks received, it is not likely that Netflix will pass the opportunity to renew the show for further seasons. In the absence of any official announcement, all we have is speculation. And our guess is if the show return for season three, it will be sometime in mid-2022.
