Netflix original series Outer Banks Season 2 is an unexpected delight for its new viewers. Netflix’s array of shows never cease to amaze us and Outer Banks is a refreshing example of this. The show has already launched its first season. Its growing popularity has earned it a second season as well. 

Outer Banks seems to be an ambitious project which keeps the viewers hooked to the last moment. This dramatic island mystery received the green light for the second season before the official debut of season 1. This exciting article here will cover everything about the brand new season 2. 

We are here to tell you everything you need to know about Outer Banks season 2, release date, the cast and the plot with a quick recap of season 1. 

The Pogues and The Kooks 

Let us introduce you to the teams. The Pogues are — John B, Sarah Cameron, JJ, Kie, Cleo and Pope. They are the labour class; the lowest members of the food chain. The class distinction between the Pogues and the Kooks was always prominent in season 1. 

The Kooks live on the North Side of the beach and they are spoiled rich kids who do things just because they can and nobody ever stops them.

Outer Banks Season 1: A quick recap 

The storyline is set on the sun-drenched North Carolina beach. The plot revolves around the rivalry between the teams of island boys. The Pogues, who are the working class island dwellers and the Kooks are the wealthy side of the island. 

Season 1 has mostly been about the competition between the two groups over a 400 million dollars gold that was supposed to be inside the Royal Merchant Navy.

But it is easier said than done. Season 1 had a lot of stormy moments. It made us believe that John B and Sarah died in a boat capsize and all their toys go down with their dead bodies. 

Outer Banks Season 2 

Season 2 has been a relief to us for many reasons. First of all, it confirms that John B and Sarah are not dead. They are on their way to the Bahamas. So we expect multiple picturesque scenes taking place in the Bahamas. Another huge revelation of season 2 is that John B.’s father, Big John who disappeared 9 months ago. 

John B yet has no clue of this. Fans speculate his reaction when he will get to the truth. The news of Big John’s being alive is the biggest reveal as of yet. We are left with a lot of questions as to what had prompted him to leave his son behind.
