Outer Banks is all the rage among YA viewers these days. The Netflix coming-of-age series follows a group of friends, the Pogues, as they investigate John B, the pack leader's father's disappearance.
The investigation leads them to a shipwreck and a treasure there worth millions of dollars. "It's definitely an escapist show," actress Madelyn Cline, who plays Sarah Cameron in the series, tells WWD.
"It depicts what everyone would love to be doing right now," she continued to the outlet, "which is be on the water, on a boat, not having to stay inside. Live Pogue style, you know?"

Actress Madelyn Cline has actually never been to the Outer Banks.
"I feel like I'm going to get a lot of heat for this, but I've actually never been to the Outer Banks," Charleston, S.C. native Madelyn confessed.
That's because the Netflix series didn't shoot on location in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, due to the streaming platform not being on board with the state's controversial "bathroom bill," HB-142. Instead, they shot in Charleston, S.C., Madelyn's hometown.
These days, the actress is waiting out the COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders in Los Angeles with her fellow Outer Banks cast members.
In fact, four of the actors are holed up together in Hollywood, including Drew Starkey, who plays her brother on the show and is actually a resident of her building, and series lead Chase Stokes, who plays her Outer Banks love interest.
"We're like a giant family," Madelyn says, adding that the four thespians managed to bring "the debauchery from Charleston to L.A."
