Outer Banks was a surprise smash hit when it landed on Netflix in early 2020 - and for good reason! The popular show - which is part teen drama, part treasure hunt thriller, follows John B and his friends as they navigate life together - while trying to track down a hidden treasure that people would (literally) kill for.

After season one's cliffhanger ending, when will we be getting answers in a second instalment? Find out everything we know about season two so far... 

What will happen in Outer Banks season two?

The season one finale was left on something of a cliffhanger after John B and Sarah sailed into a storm, leaving their friends (and Sarah’s father) believing that they were most likely killed (they did, in fact, survive). So what can we expect from season two?

WATCH: Have you watched Outer Banks?

Chatting to, Madison Bailey explained: “We start season 2 with the three Pogues [Kie, JJ, and Pope] in the Outer Banks grieving and figuring out their life without John B, Sarah, and what that means for the mission. How are we going to go about this when it's just us? Then you get to see John B and Sarah in the Bahamas doing their thing.”

When will Outer Banks season two be out? 

The show was renewed in July 2020, and the official Instagram account confirmed that the series was filming again in September 2020. Sharing a post of the Pogues back on set, they captioned the snaps: “Back in the gold game baby. OBX 2 now in production.”

In April 2021, it was confirmed that filming had concluded for season two, with Jonathan Daviss posting on Instagram: "Goodbye Barbados, that’s a wrap on @obx season 2!!! I’ve absolutely fallen in love with this beautiful country. Can’t wait for you guys to see the amazing work our entire cast and crew did this season."

Chase Stokes added: "What a labour of love this season has been. To the best crew in this business. Thank you. You have fought through adversity with a sense of humour. Sacrificed your time during a global pandemic to bring to life another incredibly compelling story. This isn’t an easy show to do, and for those that are there before we get to work, and those who stay when we leave." 

Where was Outer Banks season two filmed? 

Eagle-eyed fans spotted snaps on set from Barbados, where John B and Sarah will begin their story in season two after their boat trip in the season one finale. Speaking about the new location, the showrunner Jonas Pate told EW: “We'll definitely have at least a part of season two that'll take place in the Bahamas, but it'll all come back to the Outer Banks because that's our spiritual home.”

Will there be Outer Banks season three? 

We hope so! Jonas previously revealed that they have planned for either four or five seasons, saying: “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."
