Outer Banks Season 4
- Original Release: April 15, 2020
- Created By: Josh Pate, Jonas Pate & Shannon Burke
- Streaming: Netflix
- Seasons: 3 (4 Planned)
Outer Banks has been a major hit for Netflix and there is a Season 4 coming on the streamer. The show started as a high school drama meant for the teenage crowd but has shifted into more of a treasure hunt series for the main crew of characters.
It was just a few days before Season 3 of Outer Banks was to premiere that the Netflix series was renewed for a fourth season. To make this announcement, the cast of the hit series showed up at Poguelandia, which is an Outer Banks experience, to greet fans with news of the season 4 renewal. A new Pogue adventure is now in the works.
To put a stamp on it, the series co-creators and showrunners, Jonas and Josh Pate, and Shannon Burke said in a joint statement, “The Pogues are enjoying an adventure of a lifetime, and we now get to map out more twists and turns as the joyride continues into season four of Outer Banks. Thank you to Netflix, our cast, and the amazing fans who helped to make this happen.”
So, what do we know about season 4 of Outer Banks? Let’s find out.
Chase Stokes And Madelyn Cline Will Be Back For Outer Banks Season 4
As the story revolves around John B. and his three best friends, you can expect them all to make a return for Outer Banks season 4. This means Chase Stokes will return as the Pogue leader John B. as will Madelyn Cline as his girlfriend, Sarah Cameron.
You can expect John Daviss back as Pope Heyward along with Rudy Pankow as JJ Maybank, John B’s best friend.
Madison Bailey will be returning as Kie Carrera, a girl from the other side of the tracks (the wealthy side) who has been shunned by them for spending most of her time with the Pogues. Rounding out the returning cast is Austin North, who plays Sarah’s ex-boyfriend Topper, a sworn enemy of the Pogues.
The Show’s Creators Will Be Back For Season 4
As mentioned, Outer Banks was created by the trio of Josh Pate, Jonas Pate and Shannon Burke and all three had their hand in each and every episode of the first three seasons. Jonas Pate handled most of the duties behind the camera as he directed 18 of the 30 episodes. Moving forward into season 4, fans can expect much of the same.
As far as the series writing goes, Burke and Josh Pate teamed up to pen 20 episodes. As Jonas handled most duties behind the camera in the first three seasons and is expected to do much of the same in season 4, you can also look forward to both Burke and Josh to continue writing episodes for the fourth season of Outer Banks.
Outer Banks Season 4 Will Deal With More Treasure Hunting
The series follows a group of teenagers who live in a coastal town along the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This town is home to a massive social divide between the wealthy seasonal residents, called the Kooks, and the working-class locals, known as the Pogues.
This group of Pogue teenagers, led by John B., begins their adventure by trying to determine what happened to John B’s father. While they are searching for his father, they also stumble across a treasure map that could lead them to the famed legendary treasure.
So far the details surrounding season 4 are scarce but the season 3 finale (SPOILERS AHEAD) sets up perfectly where the series could be heading. After their adventures ended in El Dorado, Outer Banks delivered an 18-month time jump which showed the Pogues back home being honored for their discovery.
As the finale wound down, the group of teens was approached to go on another adventure, this one concerning Edward Teach. If the name sounds familiar, it should, as he was better known as the infamous pirate Blackbeard.
Outer Banks Season 4 And The Writer’s Strike
At the present time, all of Hollywood has shut down due to the Writer’s Guild of America strike. How long the strike will keep the lights off in Tinsel Town is anyone’s guess, but its effects are already being felt in La La Land. Numerous Hollywood stars have come out to join the writers on the picket line, one of the more memorable ones being actor Mandy Patinkin, who was actually walking the line outside of Warner Bros. Discovery’s building in New York (yes, the writer’s strike covers both coasts).
Patinkin was seen carrying a sign with a picture of a well-known character, Inigo Montoya, which he played in the film Princess Bride. The sign also read: “You killed Residuals Prepare to Pay,” which is a riff on one of his famous lines in the movie.
On a Twitter video that has since gone viral, Patinkin can be seen yelling, “Don’t be stupid!” We can’t see who he is yelling at. “Make sure you take care of people! You guys make millions and millions of dollars! For gods sakes! Without the writers, we have nothing! They create the stories that make our hearts beat! Help out now!”
As for Outer Banks season 4, as well as the many TV series and movies that were in pre-production, if scripts weren’t written and handed to producers before the strike, nothing new can be written until the strike is over. It is unknown just how many scripts of Outer Banks season 4 were completed before the strike, though the prevailing thought is the entire fourth season had been completed. We won’t know until season 4 goes in front of the camera.
According to Madison Bailey, this actually may be soon. “It is happening fast,” Bailey said. “Back in Charleston, we’ll be back there this summer.” So, it appears that all systems are a go for Outer Banks season 4. Now, let’s get to work on ending this writer’s strike.
