During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, creator and showrunner Jonas Pate revealed his plans for the show extend far beyond season 2. He said “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. We’ve sort of long-arced it out pretty far. I’m just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories.”

Pate is wasting no time mapping out the second season in quarantine. He told Elle that “before [season 1] even came out, Netflix had greenlit us to write some [season 2] scripts, so we’ve been working on that for a few months now.” He also elaborated on his vision for season 2 and teased “some new mysteries,” adding, “we love the mashup of friends on this fantasy thrilling adventure, and we feel like we really just played the opening round of that story”.

With a few days left for the second season to arrive, you can watch Season 1 of Outer Banks streaming on Netflix.
