Here’s everything we know about Outer Banks Season 3, the return of the Pogues on Netflix, from its release date and trailer to cast, plot, and more.
Outer Banks first premiered on Netflix in 2020. The series – created by Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke – is set in the titular area of North Carolina and the class divide between two groups of teenagers.
Three months after the release of Season 1, the streaming platform renewed the show for a second season, which dominated the Nielsen ratings US streaming chart with a number one ranking.
Ahead of Outer Banks Season 3 dropping on Netflix, here’s what we know so far.
Outer Banks Season 3 release date: When is it coming out?
Outer Banks Season 3 will premiere on Netflix on February 23, 2023.
It will arrive on the streaming platform on the same day globally, and all episodes will drop at once, so don’t worry about having to tune in weekly.
In an earlier interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jonas Pate said: “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.”
In another interview with TVLine, Chase Stokes, who plays John B, said he was “hoping to continue to tell the story for a couple more seasons”, which was echoed by the rest of the cast.

Outer Banks Season 3 plot: What is it about?
The official synopsis 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 reveling 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.
“They’re broke and far from home, they can’t trust anyone, Ward and Rafe are hungry for revenge, and there’s a ruthless Caribbean Don who will stop at nothing to find the bounty. Was the treasure ever within their reach? Or was it all a trap to stop them once and for all? Either way, it’s the Pogues against the world – and the only way out is together.”
