The latest teen drama obsession is Outer Banks, which showcases the differences and issues between the "Pogues" and "Kooks" groups who all reside in North Carolina. The first season, which dropped on Netflix on April 15, has drawn comparisons to Riverdale, The O.C., and Dawson's Creek, and many watched all 10 episodes shortly after they were released.

Will 'Outer Banks' on Netflix return for Season 2?

Those who watched Outer Banks were immediately invested in the story of John B (Chase Stokes) looking for his father, who had disappeared while looking for treasure from the Royal Merchant shipwreck. While many teen dramas simply focus on the interactions and feelings between the young adult characters, Outer Banks also had the element of mystery and an intense treasure hunt driving the plot. 

Plus, like many of its teen drama predecessors, there were also love connections and the social differences between the "haves" (Kooks) and the "have nots" (Pogues) on Outer Banks. 

While fans are hoping that there will be a continuation in the Pogues' story, Netflix has yet to confirm if there will be a second season yet. Generally, the streaming service confirms a show's renewal at least one month after it drops on the site.

The service looks at the number of views within the first month to determine whether or not the show will get a second chance. 

Considering the fact that Outer Banks was in the Top 10 of trending shows on Netflix in the United States on the day that it was released, there's already a strong possibility that the cast will be back for Season 2.

How did Season 1 of 'Outer Banks' end? SPOILERS.

While the compelling characters may have originally drawn you in to Outer Banks, you're likely dying for a second season if you've seen how the first one came to an end. In the tenth episode aka "The Phantom," it was revealed that John B's dad had been killed as a result of his search for the treasure from the Royal Merchant shipwreck. 

After Sheriff Peterkin (Adina Porter) gets murdered, her death is pinned on John B, and he spends much of the end of the finale trying to outrun the police. 

John B and one of his love interests, Sarah (Madelyn Cline), who is a Kook, escape on a boat together as they're hiding from the police. It's also important to mention that Sarah's brother, Rafe (Drew Starkey) is actually the one who shot and killed the sheriff. 

When a storm comes in, it appears as if their boat has capsized, but it's later revealed that the two have been rescued by a passing ship that is bound to the Bahamas.

It's a relief that Sarah and John have survived, but their friends are none the wiser. If there is a second season, it's likely that there will be some drama surrounding the assumed deaths of John B and Sarah until they return from the Bahamas. 

Season 1 of Outer Banks is available to stream on Netflix now.
