‘Outer Banks’ Season 4 Is Officially Happening—Here’s What We Know

*Warning: Season 3 spoilers ahead*

Mere days before the release of season three, Netflix confirmed that Outer Banks had been renewed for season 4, and it’s safe to say that fans are beyond excited.

Per Variety, co-creators Jonas Pate, Josh Pate and Shannon Burke released a joint statement announcing the news. “Seeing Poguelandia come to life was nothing short of spectacular,” it read. “The Pogues are enjoying an adventure of a lifetime and we now get to map out more twists and turns as the joyride continues into season 4 of Outer Banks. Thank you to Netflix, our cast and the amazing fans who helped to make this happen.”

After that wild season three finale, we're anxious to see what's next for the gang. But until then, here's a rundown of everything we know about Outer Banks season 4.

1. What Is Outer Banks Season 4 About?

Netflix has yet to release the official synopsis for season four. But based on how season three ends, the OBX crew are in for another twisty adventure.  

At the end of season three, the Pogues receive a captain's log that once belonged to Blackbeard, a famous pirate. John B agrees to investigate the clue, which suggests that season four will see the group embark on yet another drama-filled quest for Blackbeard's treasure.

Additionally, Carlacia Grant, who plays Cleo, shared some predictions regarding her character’s journey in season four. She told Cosmopolitan, "I have some theories. I don't want to ruin them, but I would love to see Cleo's backstory. Like if a person came back from Cleo's past to really explain some of her mannerisms. It's Outer Banks. Her mom died, her dad left, but any of these people could appear somehow."

2. Who Is in the Outer Banks Season 4 Cast?

Judging by the final scene in season three, it’s safe to say that both John B (Chase Stokes) and Sarah will return (Madelyn Cline). 

The rest of the main cast—including Madison Bailey (Kiara), Grant (Cleo), Rudy Pankow (JJ) and Jonathan Daviss (Pope)—will likely reprise their roles, though Netflix has yet to confirm casting details.

3. When Does Outer Banks Season 4 Premiere?

Keep in mind that season three only dropped last month, so it’s a bit early to predict when the new season will premiere. 

After Outer Banks was renewed for season three in December 2021, new episodes didn’t premiere until February 2023—but this was likely due to filming delays related to the pandemic. If things go smoothly for season four, then fans may reunite with the Pogues in early 2024.

4. Is There a Trailer for Season 4? 

Since season four was confirmed just a few weeks ago, production is still in the very early stages. Therefore, Netflix hasn’t released a trailer just yet. Until then, you can stream the first three seasons on Netflix.
