Outer Banks is a Netflix teen drama series created by Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke. The show takes place on the islands off North Carolina's coast.
After teenager John B (Chase Stokes) uncovers a shipwreck, he and his three pals embark on a treasure hunt linked to his father's disappearance.
We've already binged three seasons of the fab show, and we're ready for a fourth! But what exactly is going on with season 4 of Outer Banks? and when will it be on Netflix?
OUTER BANKS SEASON 4
Season 3 finally resolved a lot of issues we had following season 2, fans are now wondering when is Outer Banks Season 4 coming out?
The good news is we're definitely getting Season 4 Outer Banks! Netflix shared the news on Tudum on February 19th 2023, just before OBX 3 dropped.
But like all good shows that get a renewal, it still has to actually be filmed. And that hasn't even started yet.
In fact, we know that Outer Banks season 4 will be released in 2024 so we have quite a way to go before we see the Pogues back on screen.
OUTER BANKS SEASON GUIDE
So far Netflix has delivered 30 episodes of ‘OBX' over three seasons.
The first season explores the class divide of the community. The island is divided between two types of people: the Pogues and the Kooks. The Pogues are impoverished, working-class individuals who are frequently employed by the Kooks.
Netflix dropped season one in April 2020, the show quickly found a loyal audience and ‘Outer Banks‘ went on to win the People's Choice Award for ‘Most Binge Worthy Show'. Along with the ‘Best Kiss' award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

John B, Sarah, JJ and Kiara seek to unlock a secret about John B's father's disappearance that could change their lives forever. Along the way, they battle rival gangs, uncover hidden powers and discover plots darker than they could have ever imagined.
With tension escalating between the Kooks and Pogues, old friends become new enemies and new alliances are formed on this thrilling island adventure!
HOW MANY OUTER BANKS SEASONS WILL THERE BE?
In an April 2020 interview with Entertainment Weekly, OBX creator and showrunner Jonas Pate stated that he thinks the series will run for four or five seasons.
“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,” Jonas said. “We’ve sort of long-arced it out pretty far. I’m just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories.”
So we now know that there will definitely be four seasons and Netflix have not said it will be the last so if we all cross our fingers, we might just get a fifth season!
For fans of the Outer Banks, the future looks brighter than a sunlit sandy beach!
WHERE IS OUTER BANKS FILMED?
The Netflix teen drama is set on the North Carolina coast. Although the show's town is 100% fictional, The Outer Banks is a real place, it's a collection of barrier islands sitting next to North Carolina and Virginia.
The series is filmed south of the actual Outer Banks in Charleston, many locations from the show are real and you can visit them.
The Wreck is shown on the program as being Kiara's workplace. The name was abbreviated to The Wreck, but you'll be relieved to learn that The Wreck is also The Wreck of the Richard and Charlene, a Mount Pleasant restaurant that serves fresh seafood.
The beach is a 5-minute drive away, and the Charleston Harbor isn't far off. Morris Lighthouse, the iconic lighthouse from the series, can be found there.
