Outer Banks Season 4 Release Date

Netflix has not revealed a release date for Outer Banks season 4. With such an early renewal, filming is likely to get underway in the next few months.

The first season was released on April 15, 2020. Season 2 followed just over a year later on July 30, 2021. There was a bit of a break between seasons 2 and 3. Netflix didn’t renew the show for a third season until December 2021.

But Netflix didn’t waste any time with that season 4 renewal. With season 3 dropping on February 23, 2023, Outer Banks season 4 will likely be released in early to mid-2024.

The hit series held the #1 spot globally in Netflix’s Top 10 English TV list for the 4 weeks following its season 2 launch on July 30, 2021, and was in the Top 10 for 6 weeks. It also reached the Top 10 in 74 countries.

How Many Seasons Will Outer Banks Have?

In this era of television, you truly never know how many seasons of a show you’re going to get. Outer Banks is definitely getting season 4, but the showrunners have had plans for at least 5 seasons for some time now.

“Ever since we started, we always viewed it as something that was probably like a four-season, maybe five-season show, but definitely 4 seasons,” Jonas told Entertainment Weekly back in 2020. “We’ve sort of long-arced it out pretty far. I’m just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories.”

Chase revealed ahead of season 3 that he’s game to keep on playing John B. “I love this show,” the actor told The Hollywood Reporter. “I love my cast. I love the world that we’ve created. So however long they want to keep doing this thing, I’m down to rock with that.”

He did make one note about the show’s future and his role in it. “My whole thing is, it’s not about how the plane takes off, it’s about how you land it,” he added. “As long as the writers and Netflix get it right, that’s my main concern. I want to make sure we end this show on the right note and tell the right story, and not extend it too far that it gets wishy-washy. I think you see that in TV often, so I want to tell the right story and end it on the right note.”
