Outer Banks season 3 came to a dramatic conclusion on Netflix earlier this year, leaving fans clamouring for the fourth instalment.


The hit Netflix drama revolves around the conflict between two groups of teenagers divided by class differences — the Pogues and the Kooks — and their hunt for a mythical treasure.

Season 3, which landed on Netflix back in February, saw the return of the main stars of the show: Madelyn Cline and Chase Stokes.

There were also a handful of newcomers in the season 3 cast, including Andy McQueen (Station Eleven), Fiona Palomo (Control Z), and Lou Ferrigno Jr (Stargirl).
