Unfortunately we might have a while to wait until Netflix confirms whether the show will be returning, as season two landed on the streaming service on 30 July, and Netflix usually waits for several months to see if audience statistics before confirming whether a follow-up instalment will be green-lit.

Speaking about the future of the series, co-creator Josh Pate told EW: “The treasure hunt is going to expand, and the mythology around the treasure hunt is going to evolve and get deeper. We're pretty fired up about how that mythology is going to expand in season three. We've been reading a lot of books, and we got some good things to hang it on.”

The cast have also spoken about how keen they are for more episodes, with Chase Stokes telling Cosmopolitan: “I would love to keep it going. But obviously it just comes down to people’s reactions to it. Hopefully, just like last year, people really attach to the story and fall in love with the journey of not just The Pogues but the entire world of Outer Banks. All of these characters have something super interesting to offer.”
