Among these gems was the breakout hit, “Outer Banks.” This teen drama, created by the talented trio of Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke, graced our screens in April 2020, offering a world filled with intrigue, romance, and division. It was precisely the kind of escapism we all needed.
The series quickly gained a dedicated following, with a second season dropping in July 2021 and a third in February 2023. Anticipation for a fourth season was palpable long before the third season had even wrapped filming. To fans’ delight, the announcement for “Outer Banks Season 4” came before the first episode of Season 3 had aired. Now, let’s dive into all the exciting details we know about the upcoming season!
When Can We Expect Season 4?
While an exact release date for Season 4 remains elusive, dedicated fans have been piecing together clues. Given the rapid turnaround between filming and the release of Seasons 2 and 3, it’s plausible that Season 4 will follow suit. Filming is estimated to conclude on December 15th, 2023, hinting at a potential early 2024 release, possibly in the spring. However, we must consider the impact, if any, of the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) strike, which could lead to delays. Fans eagerly await more details.
Where to Watch Season 4?
Similar to its past installments, “Outer Banks Season 4” will be available for streaming on Netflix. For those without a subscription, options include a $6.99 per month plan with ads or a $9.99 per month ad-free plan. Keep in mind that Netflix has been cracking down on password sharing, offering alternative subscription options for multi-device streaming.
Is There a Trailer?
While a full trailer is yet to be released due to ongoing production, a teaser video from June has stoked excitement. This brief 40-second clip reunites fans with their beloved Pogues and serves as a tantalizing cast announcement trailer, setting the stage for a season filled with anticipation.
The Returning Cast

Routledge), Madelyn Cline (Sarah Cameron), Jonathan ‘J.D.’ Daviss (Pope Heyward), Carlacia Grant (Cleo), Rudy Pankow (JJ Maybank), Austin North (Topper), and Drew Starkey (Rafe Cameron). While some cast members are unconfirmed, hints from Season 3 suggest we’ll see familiar faces like David Jensen (Wes Genrette).

What to Expect in Season 4
Although no official plot synopsis has been released, Season 3 left us with more questions than answers. It’s clear that Season 4 will pick up where Season 3 left off, with the Pogues embarking on another treasure hunt. Expect unresolved plotlines and deepening character relationships, hallmarks of the series.
The Creative Team
Creators Shannon Burke, Jonas Pate, and Josh Pate return as writers, and the directorial lineup remains a topic of speculation. With 18 episodes already under his belt, Jonas Pate is a likely candidate for directing duties. The team, including executive producers Sunny Hodge and Aaron Miller, ensures that “Outer Banks” continues to deliver.
Is Season 4 the End?
While Season 4’s status as the final season remains unconfirmed, hints from the creators suggest a potential fifth season. Given the show’s immense success and the trend of expanding beloved franchises, it’s safe to assume that the Pogues will continue their journey beyond Season 4. Stay tuned for more adventures!
