Netflix has renewed Outer Banks in December 2021 for a third season. However, it seems that the streaming service is already planning a fourth season.
According to Small Screen, Season 4 of Outer Banks has already begun production.
According to the report, a source close to Outer Banks said that screenplays for season 3 and 4 had already been written earlier in the year.
Here’s what Small Screen has got to say about Outer Banks’ fourth season:
“We are finishing the scripts for Seasons 3 & 4. Season 3 will begin filming in the new year, and should be available by mid-2022 if everything goes according to plan.
Outer Banks before Season 4
The show centers on a group of teenage girls who live in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. The rich Kooks and the poor Pogues have a long-standing feud and often fight. Pogue John B ( Chase Stokes), along with his friends, discover a sunken ship following a hurricane. This leads to an exciting adventure that takes them on an action-packed adventure to find more information. The friends eventually find a package from John B’s father, which includes a map as well as a tape recorder.
Dad tells John B that he wants him to “go after the gold” and that he is literally referring to $400 million worth of gold bars. John B and his friends start to look for gold. John B also falls in love with Sarah, his boss’ daughter ( Madelyn Clline ).
John B and his friends find the treasure miraculously, but Sarah’s father takes it. John B and Sarah escape drug dealers and cops by the end of the episode. The boat sinks, and the Pogues learn that the lovers have died. The couple are rescued by a passing boat heading for the Bahamas, where Sarah’s father has kept the gold.
Do not feel bad if you don’t find all the twists and turns of _’s first season easy to follow. Even the show’s stars had trouble doing a 30-second recap.
Season 2’s trailer made it clear that the Pogues were going to make things even more crazy. John B speaks in a voiceover, “My old man used tell me it was best not to say you’ve reached rock bottom.” He said that you can always go lower. Netflix released two clips in which JJ ( Rudy Pankow), loses his job following a confrontation with the Kooks. The Pogues also discover that Sarah B and John B are still breathing.
“Season 2 will test our crew like no other,” the creators/executive producers Jonas Pate and Josh Pate stated in a statement. We’ve increased the drama and romance of Season 1… It’s going be wild!
Season 2’s trailer showed another map. This means that it is possible there may be more treasure to discover.
Is Outer Banks Season 4 renewed or cancelled?
Outer Banks season 3 production started in February 2022 in Charleston (South Carolina) and will continue until mid-August 2022. The series’ second season was a success, with a budget of US$ 5,000,000 per episode. It also received millions of views on Netflix in the first four weeks. Why is it taking so long to renew? It is normal for Netflix not to rush to confirm renewals for series such as this.
However, Outer Banks is a large ensemble cast so the production company needs to take the time with each agent to negotiate each cast member’s salary. After that, pre-production must take place.
Pre-production refers to the preparation and planning for a television series or film. This includes writing the script, casting actors, selecting locations and designing the sets. It is crucial because pre-production allows filmmakers to plan the logistics of the production before filming starts. A film or television series that is not properly pre-produced can face delays and costly errors.
We can expect to see regular cast members such as Madison Bailey, Chase Stokes and Rudy Pankow, Austin North, Charles Esten, and Jonathan Daviss. The cast will be expanded in season 3 and season 4 will feature more character additions and expansions. Let’s take a look at those parts. This will give you a complete understanding of the show’s content.
Outer Banks is home to a few casting changes. First, Andy MacQueen, from Station Eleven, plays Carlos Singh. He is a smart, ruthless and refined man on a treasure hunting mission. Fiona Palomo, from Control Z by Netflix, plays Sofia, an aspiring Country Clubber disguised in a pogue and who is looking to establish a connection with Rae. Lou Ferrigno Jr., from Star Girl — will play Ryan. He is calm and collected. However, the scriptwriters described him as a hungry antagonist who seeks to protect Carlos Singh’s interests.
Outer Banks Season 4 Release Date
We can expect Outer Banks Season 4 release in Q2 2023 if everything goes according to Netflix’s post production schedule for Outer Banks. We must consider the importance of the post-production stage, which is the last step in the television production process. This involves the assembly of all the elements of the show including sound effects and footage.
There are two types of post-production: online and offline. Post-production offline is where most of the work takes place, including editing footage and adding music and sound effects. Online post-production is where the final stages are completed and the show is ready to air.
It is possible for the post-production process to take a long time depending on how large or complex the project. A major network television series may take many months to complete while a smaller independent film might only take a few days. No matter how large the project is, post-production aims to produce a finished product that entertains and meets studio standards.
