All aboard the Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline ship! The Outer Banks costars, who play onscreen lovers John B and Sarah Cameron, are sparking some major dating rumors.
Speculation about the Netflix costars began on Monday, April 27, when Chase, 27, left a particularly flirty comment on Madelyn’s Instagram. “Heart rate … decreasing … help,” the Maryland native wrote. Chase later commented, “Man, I really stirred the pot here didn’t I?”
Additionally, Madelyn, 22, posted a photo of the Outer Banks cast where she and Chase look pretty cuddled up — and naturally, fans took notice! “You and Chase are so cute,” one user commented. “I swear you and John B are dating IRL,” added another.
“John B and Sarah look so in love,” a third person commented, while a fourth echoed, “Please tell us you’re dating in real life, please!” On top of the social media flirtation, Chase and Madelyn happen to be isolating together amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“Some of the cast — Drew Starkey (Rafe Cameron), Rudy Pankow (JJ), Chase and myself — and our friend Elaine are all kind of quarantined together right now,” she told E! News on April 21.
Thankfully, with season 2 of the beloved series likely to be picked up, audiences will get to see more of Chase and Madelyn’s amazing chemistry. *Spoilers ahead.* After all, during episode 10, “The Phantom,” the lovebirds survived the storm and were last seen heading down to the Bahamas to reclaim the treasure Sarah’s dad, Ward Cameron, stole from the Royal Merchant stash.
“There would be a couple of episodes that take place, at least partially, in the Bahamas,” one of the show’s creators Jonas Pate told USA Today. “It unfolds into a bigger mystery. We keep our old villains and we add some new ones. But it always comes back to the Outer Banks.”
We have no doubt John B and Sarah’s relationship will be put to the test once they return home. Ultimately, she’ll have to choose between protecting her family — mainly her brother, Rafe Cameron, who shot and killed Sheriff Peterkin — or her boyfriend.
Here’s hoping Netflix confirms Outer Banks season 2 soon! In the meantime, we’ll be fawning over Chase and Madelyn possibly being together IRL.
