If you’re anything like us (and millions of other Netflix viewers), then you’ve likely already binge-watched season 1 of the teen drama Outer Banksmore than once! Considering there was a major cliffhanger at the end of episode 10, audiences are desperately awaiting news about season 2’s release date, plot and actors. Keep reading to learn more. 

Outer Banks was given the green light for season 2 and will hit Netflix on Friday, July 30. Too excited to wait? We get it. Thankfully, one of the show’s creators Jonas Pate already revealed how John B (played by Chase Stokes), Sarah Cameron (played by Madelyn Cline) — who are dating in real life — and the rest of the gang will handle new challenges.

“There would be a couple episodes that take place, at least partially, in the Bahamas,” he told USA Today in April 2020. “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.”

Spoiler alerts ahead! At the end of episode 10, “The Phantom,” John B and Sarah are presumed dead after trying to escape to Mexico — where they would later meet up with friends Pope (played by Jonathan Daviss), Kie (played by Madison Bailey) and JJ (played by Rudy Pankow).

However, the lovebirds were derailed by a hurricane, leaving them stranded at sea. Eventually, Sarah has the ingenious idea to use the gold they had found from the Royal Merchant to signal a nearby ship. 

Last we see John B and Sarah, they’re headed to Nassau, which of course, is where her father, Ward Cameron (played by Charles Esten) sent the rest of the gold. Some theories suggest that John B’s dad, John Sr. (played by Charles Halford), is still alive and hiding out there, as well.
