Outer Banks season 3 plot

Unfortunately, details about what will actually happen in Outer Banks season 3 are pretty sparse at this moment in time, with the show’s creators and Netflix keeping their cards close to their chest. However, we know that the relationship between John B and his father will be a huge part of Outer Banks season 3.

Season 2 of the show saw lots of drama, with John B and Sarah in the Bahamas after the tumultuous conclusion of season 1. Meanwhile, the Pogues and the Kooks continued their rivalry in the pursuit of the $400 million. By the end of season 2, we learned that John B’s father had finally been found alive.

Josh Pate and Shannon Burke, creators of the show, had this to say when speaking to Entertainment Weekly: “John B’s relationship with his dad is a huge theme. Eventually, they’re going to meet back up, and John B has to reconcile his idealised version of his dead dad, with the reality of his alive dad.”

Meanwhile, the Pogues ended season 2 stranded on a desert island, with no food and no means of getting off. And, season 2 villain Carla Limbrey has connected with Big John, John B’s father, with the pair seemingly forming an alliance to get what they both want. Will enemies become allies? We will have to wait and see.

We also have lots more romance to look forward to, particularly among the Pogues clan, with the showrunners confirming they will be exploring some long-awaited connections.
