Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for Seasons 1 and 2 of Outer Banks.
It was one crazy summer.
The Netflix series Outer Banks follows John B. (Chase Stokes) and his group of friends — known as the Pogues — as they embark on a mission to find buried treasure in their beachside North Carolina town.
However, they are not the only ones after the gold and soon find themselves embroiled in a race against time against John B.’s boss, Ward Cameron (Charles Esten). Oh, and did we mention he also killed John B.'s dad ... or so we thought?
With epic plot twists throughout Season 1 of Outer Banks, fans were left on the edge of their seats. To recap, the first season ended with Ward's son Rafe (Drew Starkey) killing the town sheriff and John B. being framed for her murder. Plus, everyone (including the Pogues) thinks that John B. and Sarah Cameron (Madelyn Cline) are dead.
Ahead of Season 2, Distractify spoke exclusively with two of the show's stars who teased that the final episode will once again end on another major cliffhanger. So, will there be a Season 3 of Outer Banks?
Will there be a Season 3 of 'Outer Banks'?
Outer Banks star Drew Starkey, who plays the villainous Rafe, told Distractify that "there's a big cliffhanger at the end of Season 2."
"You get some closure this season, but there is a huge cliffhanger as well," he added. "I remember us watching the last episode and us screaming at the TV that we wanted more ourselves so, it’s a good balance."
Additionally, Rudy Pankow who plays JJ echoed similar sentiments, telling us, "OBX is amazingly good at cliffhangers, as well as the overall writers. So you can bet again, there is a giant and awesome twist."
Though the actors couldn't elaborate on the big "twist" in the finale at the time, they weren't kidding that Season 2 left fans wanting more.
To recap, John B's dad is ALIVE and the Pogues are on the run and have washed up on a deserted island which they have dubbed Poguelandia.
With fans yearning for more, the cast has officially announced that they will be back for Season 3.
"All the way from Poguelandia, I've got incoming news," says Chase. "Season 3 baby! We're coming back, season 3."
Show creator Jonas Pate previously told Entertainment Weekly that they always viewed the series as "something that was probably like a four-season, maybe five-season show, but definitely four seasons."
And for fans wondering when OBX Season 3 will premiere on Netflix, the streaming giant announced that the next adventurous installment will drop on February 23.
'Outer Banks' Season 2 spoilers: Actors tease more daddy issues.
Throughout Season 1, audiences watch as Rafe tries to please his father in any way and gain his acceptance. In the finale, the Kook even kills the sheriff in order to save his dad, and then the two of them cover it up.
"[We'll] definitely see this character step up into a larger role of responsibility. There’s a lot more asked of him this season," Drew teased to Distractify. "He’s very much involved in this race for the gold and Ward's obviously bringing him in as kind of a right-hand man out of necessity to help him on this trip."
Additionally, the Netflix actor teased the "guilt" and internal struggle that Rafe will face as he tries to come to terms with the crime he committed. "He’s trying to be a better man and a lot of times he just can’t get there," Drew added.
Another character who struggles with father-son issues is JJ. In Season 1, JJ finally stood up to his abusive dad and even contemplated killing him during their brutal fight.
For OBX fans, this is not the last we've seen of the two.
"You can bet there will be some sort of encounter," Rudy teased. So, will these two characters face off again?
