Created by Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke, Outer Banks (OBX) features a group of local teens who call themselves "Pogues", played by Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Jonathan Daviss, Madison Bailey, and Rudy Pankow. From a fictional town in North Carolina, the Pogues are on a mission to find treasure worth $400 million in gold as they navigate their tense rivalry with the wealthy Kooks. Season 2 found John B. (Stokes) and Sarah (Cline) on the run in Bahamas, with friends and foes alike searching for the treasure.

The first season of OBX premiered on Netflix in April 2020, but the show didn't explode in popularity until the release of Season 2 last year, when it was ranked number one in the Nielsen ratings U.S. streaming chart, who announced that the series had been viewed for a total of 2.1 billion minutes of its 20 episodes.

In December 2021, Netflix renewed OBX for Season 3, and many fans are hoping to watch the Pogues return to their TV screens this summer.

No, it's highly unlikely that Outer Banks Season 3 will be released this summer. According to the most recent production updates, OBX 3 is still filming in Charleston, South Carolina, and it will reportedly last until August 2022. The show will have to go through post-production stage before Netflix releases the third season.

According to a rumor from Netflix Daily Updates on Facebook, it has been reported that OBX 3 will be released on Netflix sometime in December 2022, but the streamer hasn't officially confirmed this.

Netflix's list of movies and TV shows arriving in July 2022 doesn't include Outer Banks Season 3, so don't expect the show to return anytime soon. However, July will have a lot of exciting Netflix original titles, such as Stranger Things Season 4 Vol. 2 and the new live-action Resident Evil series.
