Season 2 of Outer Banks has just dropped. And it is taking the Outer Banks world by storm. It was much awaited after the jaw dropping end that season 1 had. People were so excited for it, because so many of the questions that season 1 raised over its entire run time remained unanswered. And season 2 delivered amazingly on that part. It answered all those questions and much more. But in the process, it raised some questions of its own. Which is quite the natural thing for a show like Outer Banks. And it is something that the creators of the show bank on to reel the audience in for the next season. So when will all these questions that season 2 raised, be answered? That is the question on everyone’s mind now that season 2 has officially ended. Everyone is curious about the fate of our revered characters.
So what is next for John, Kie, Pope, Sarah, and JJ? And what is going to be the conclusion of their story, and their happy ending? Is there even going to be one? These are just some of the questions that the season 2 final raised. And all these questions can be answered only with Outer Banks Season 3, with the unfortunate part being the unknown fate of the show. Since season 2 of the show just came out, it is not possible for us to say with certainty what the fate of the third season is going to be. But we do have some clue and some speculation that might interest you.

What Are The Chances For Outer Banks Season 3?
The chances for Outer Banks season 3, in our opinion, are really good. Most of it comes down to the popularity and the timing of the show. Netflix announced Outer Banks season 3 just three months after the first season in the franchise. That is a really short development cycle and early announcement for any show. So the demand for the show is clearly there. And we can expect the same for Outer Banks Season 3 given the success of season 2. Given all these details, we would probably expect Outer Banks Season 3 to land sometime in 2022. That would make perfect sense given all the logistics and the development cycle. But again, this is all really speculation. So take it with a grain of salt.
The actors for the show also had some things to say about a season 3. Chase Stokes, the actor who plays John B., said, “I would love to keep it going, you know, but it obviously depends on the reaction to it. Just like last year, we’re hoping that people really attach to the story and continue to kind of fall in love with the journey of not just the Pogues, but the entire world of Outer Banks. I mean, all of these characters have something super, super interesting to offer. Whether it’s the journey of war or even the journey of Wheezie, I’m interested in what she’s going to do.”
The showrunner Jonas Pate also stated, “Ever since we started, we always viewed it as something that was probably like a four-season, maybe five-season show, but definitely four seasons. We’ve sort of long-arced it out pretty far. I’m just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories.”
All of this signals to a strong possibility that there is going to be a season 3. The actors are willing, the creator is willing, the production team is willing, and hopefully, so is Netflix. These are all pretty strong indicators for season 3, and we’re really happy to see them.
Outer Banks Season 3: What To Expect
Given the success of the first two seasons, season 3 of Outer Banks is surely going to be huge. We would expect much more of the same from our beloved characters, but on a bigger scale, and better. We also expect some of the older cast members to make a return based on rumors. But it remains to be seen what will become of them. So far, things look pretty good for the show. It just seems to be a matter of waiting for the next season for now.
