Picking up right where season two left off, the official synopsis for series three reads: 

"After losing the gold and fleeing the Outer Banks, Season 3 finds the Pogues washed ashore on a desert island that, for a brief moment, seems like an idyllic home. Officially deemed 'Poguelandia,' the island's newest residents spend their days fishing, swimming, and revelling in the carefree lifestyle of their temporary dwelling. But things quickly go south for John B, Sarah, Kiara, Pope, JJ, and Cleo when they find themselves once again caught up in a race for the treasure, quite literally running for their lives."

Season three will land on Netflix on 23 February

As well as exploring the Pogue's adjustment to island living, season three will hopefully answer questions left over from another major cliffhanger, after it was revealed that John B's dad, Big John Rutledge, is still alive. He has been presumed dead since the first season. 

In the final, nail-biting moment of season two, fans were shocked after treasure hunter Carla Limbrey headed to a mysterious home in Barbados, where Rutledge has been secretly residing.
