Outer Banks broke out as a surprise hit for Netflix in 2020, transporting audiences sheltered in their homes to the wide open branches of the North Carolina coast. The teen adventure closed a three-season treasure hunt down earlier this year, and now we have new details about where Season 4 is headed next.
Outer Banks Season 4, coming to Netflix, takes the series in a wild new direction as now the quest is to find the treasure of Blackbeard.
Season 3 of Outer Banks ended with an 18-month time jump, catching up with the Pogues after high school as they use their newfound treasure to fund their dreams. According to series creator Josh Pate, Season 3 concluded the first Outer Banks trilogy, and Season 4 will explore its main characters’ new normals and launch them on another treasure hunt.
The clean slate will serve as a launchpad to find the treasure of the infamous Blackbeard. A real historical figure known to frequent North Carolina shores, Blackbeard was just the name the Outer Banks writers needed to create a splash of intrigue in the Season 3 finale.
Blackbeard is a figure with ties to the outer banks, making him a natural choice for the world of the show. For Season 4, Pate promises that fans will experience a fresh take on the Blackbeard legend. As the Pogues pursue their next big score, Outer Banks is sure to supply its signature twists and turns to the legends that fuel it.

Of course, everyone’s favorite rapscallion heroes will not be alone in their search for the booty Blackbeard left behind. The next entry of Outer Banks is set to introduce a new array of villains that will take the danger of treasure hunting to the next level.
The primary series antagonist, Ward Cameron, met his demise at the conclusion of Season 3. His son, Rafe, however, is still around. He will likely return, but his intentions and allegiances remain a mystery. Still, there is a huge space for new baddies to fill in the coming tale.
Details about who the next big threats are have not been revealed. Whoever they are will likely be even more formidable than anyone the Pogues have yet faced.
No release date has yet been put forth, but a mid-2024 debut is expected for Outer Banks Season 4.
With Sarah and John B. running their surf shop, Pope off to college, JJ adventuring on his boat, and Kiera rescuing turtles, the Outer Banks crew will return to Netflix in fresh circumstances. Having reached the end of the show’s first trilogy in style, the next set of chapters is sure to endanger the Pogues’ newfound harmony.
The WGA writer’s strike and the SAG-AFTRA actor’s strike have delayed the development of Outer Banks Season 4. Reports indicate that the WGA is close to reaching a deal with the AMPTP that will end the strike and send writers back to work; at this point, the ball can start rolling on several movies and shows currently paused.
