‘Outer Banks’ Season 2 release date has yet to be announced 

Outer Banks Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger. When Ward Cameron (Charles Esten), frames John B. (Chase Stokes) for the murder of Sheriff Peterkin (Adina Porter), he runs away with Sarah Cameron (Madelyn Cline). 

At this point, Netflix has not shared a concrete date regarding the release of Outer Banks Season 2. However, they have confirmed fans can expect new episodes this summer. Fans have known for a while that the show wrapped a few months ago, thanks to social media posts from the cast. 

Jonathan Daviss, who plays Pope in the series, shared a photo on social media at the beginning of April 2021. “Goodbye, Barbados,” the actor wrote. “That’s a wrap on @obx season 2!!!”

Since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting news regarding the new season. Stay tuned to Showbiz Cheat Sheet for updates.

The Outer Banks social media accounts shared a new teaser image on June 8. “Pogues 4 life,” the caption reads. The picture shows JJ (Rudy Pankow), Kiara (Madison Bailey), and Pope standing next to a tree with John B.’s memorial carved into it. 

At the end of season 1, John B. and Sarah Cameron are presumed dead after sailing off into a tropical storm. What the Pogues don’t know is that a cargo boat picked them up and took them to the Bahamas, which happened to be their destination. 

“RIP John B and Sarah,” Daviss captioned the same photo on Instagram. “Just gonna leave this right here…” Pankow shared on his Instagram account
