There are some amazing titles coming in the final months of 2022; however, Outer Banks season 3 will not be among the titles coming this year. I know, we need a minute to process this news too.
After Netflix renewed Outer Banks for a third season last December, the hope among fans was that we’d see season 3 arrive sometime in 2022. Sure, we knew it wasn’t likely we’d see the season arrive in the summer due to the later renewal; however, there was still a hope the season could arrive sometime in the fall. Sadly, it appears our wait to reunite with the Pogues is going to extend into the new year.
During the 2022 Tudum global event, Netflix offered up our first look at the upcoming third season which gifted us with a sneak peek at the Pogues living their best lives on the deserted island they found themselves on in the season 2 finale.
While the teaser was quite exciting, our trip to Poguelandia is going to have to wait until next year as the teaser confirmed season 3 will not be coming until 2023.
Outer Banks season 3 release date update
At this time, Netflix still has not confirmed an exact premiere date for Outer Banks season 3; however, we do know season 3 won’t be arriving until sometime in 2023. The question is how late into the next year Netflix is going to make us wait for the next season to arrive.
While many associate Outer Banks with summer thanks to the show’s summer vibes and the fact that season 2 was released in July 2021, the show actually first arrived on Netflix in April 2020. With this in mind, it’s entirely possible Netflix could choose to release the upcoming third season sometime in April 2023.
There are currently no returning shows confirmed for April 2023 and April has historically been a month Netflix has opted to drop new seasons of some of its biggest shows. Plus, Outer Banks would be a perfect Spring release.
It’s also possible that Netflix could look to release the new season sometime at the beginning of the new year. In the past, Netflix has opted to release a big title on New Year’s Day and it has yet to confirm a title for Jan. 1, 2023. Could Outer Banks end up being the show Netflix chooses to release on New Year’s Day?
We’ll have to wait to find out, but one that is certain is we don’t anticipate Netflix will make fans wait too long into 2023 for the new season to arrive.
Outer Banks seasons 1 & 2 are streaming on Netflix now.
