Get ready to return to Poguelandia!

Netflix's Outer Banks is coming back for season 3 soon.

After the success of season 2, which was released on July 30, 2021, Netflix renewed the show for a third season in December 2021.

In February, Netflix announced that the series had officially started production on season 3, posting a pic of the Pogues on Instagram.

Now fans are finally getting a first look at what lies in store for the Pogues. During Tudum: A Netflix Global Fan Event on Sept. 24, the cast shared the action-packed first teaser for the upcoming season.

While the new season doesn't premiere until next year, we already have an idea of what to expect.

In June, Deadline announced three new stars for the upcoming season. Per the outlet, Andy McQueen (Station Eleven) is playing Carlos Singh, "a Caribbean Don who is intelligent, refined, and ruthless, and is out on a treasure hunt of his own," Fiona Palomo (Control Z) is playing Sofia, a Pogue who "secretly yearns to be a part of the country club crowd. Likable and scrappy, she starts to form a close connection with Rafe (Starkey)," and Lou Ferrigno Jr (Stargirl) is playing Ryan, "Singh's top security officer and enforcer."

Following the wild season 2 finale (in which the Pogues end up on a deserted island), the upcoming season will follow their new adventures as they continue to hunt for treasure. There will also be a lot more drama, especially after the revelation that John B's dad is alive.

"John B's relationship with his dad is a huge theme," showrunner Josh Pate previously told Entertainment Weekly about season 3. "And having his dad back around and eventually they're going to meet back up and John B has to reconcile his idealized version of his dead dad with the reality of his alive dad, it gives us a lot of thematic father-son stuff to work with."

Pate teased that there could be some new romances developing as well, particularly with Kiara and JJ. "That was one thing we really loved about season 1 that's less of an element of season 2 that we really want to get back to," Pate said. "That was the plan, kind of architecting the characters towards opening up some romances in season 3."

Is there a trailer for Outer Banks season 3?

The first teaser trailer for season 3 was released during Tudum: A Netflix Global Fan Event on Sept. 24.

Netflix hasn't renewed the series yet, but showrunner Jonas Pate has expressed his desire for the show to run for at least four seasons. "Ever since we started, we always viewed it as something that was probably like a four-season, maybe five-season show, but definitely four seasons," he told EW. "We've sort of long-arced it out pretty far. I'm just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories."
