Outer Banks on Netflix went down well with fans and season two is looking likely after the co-creator dropped a hint. At the end of the first season John B (Chase Stokes) and Sarah Cameron (Madelyn Cline) were rescued by a crew during a storm. Co-creator Josh Pate revealed he was working on a script for a potential season two and an official release date has now been revealed.
He told Entertainment Weekly he had been discussing a new season with Netflix before the first season was even released on the streaming platform.
Pate said: "Netflix had greenlit us to write some [season 2] scripts, so we’ve been working on that for a few months now.
"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."
This will be music to the ears of avid fans who fell in love with John B's character, and viewers were left feeling emotional having seen the group of friends grow even stronger.
Fans have been calling for a new series on Twitter, with one fan saying: "Outer Banks needs to hurry up with a season two."

"We feel like we really just played the opening round of that story."
Fans will most likely have to wait until the end of 2021 for a new season.
