John B Reunites With His Father in the Intense "Outer Banks" Season 3 Trailer

Welcome to Poguelandia! After a long — long — wait, Netflix has finally unveiled the full trailer for "Outer Banks" season three. In the show's first teaser, which the streamer released on Sept. 24, 2022, as part of its Tudum fan event, it appears the teens are making the most out of being stranded on a (hopefully) deserted island.

In the clip, the Pogues are living the good life, jumping into the ocean from tall cliffs and goofing around like they don't have a care in the world. But things are never that easy for the beleaguered North Carolina teens, and trouble is lurking ahead in the form of Ward (Charles Esten), Rafe (Drew Starkey), and Carla (Elizabeth Mitchell). "Nothing good comes easy, nothing worthy is given," John B (Chase Stokes) says in the teaser. "What are you willing to do to win? How far do you go to keep your treasure?"

The latest season three preview, which Netflix released on Feb. 2, teases the Pogues' frantic treasure hunt for a coveted golden idol, in which they're literally running for their lives, as well as some surprises — including Kiara (Madison Bailey) being held captive by a ruthless Caribbean kingpin looking for a bounty; a reunion between John B and his father, Big John (Charles Halford); and Sarah (Madelyn Cline) facing her own fugitive father, Ward.

When "Outer Banks" was released on Netflix in 2020, it was the perfect escape during the pandemic. With every episode, viewers were mentally transported to the beautiful Outer Banks and sucked into the battle between the Pogues and the Kooks — all from the comfort of their living rooms. No matter which side of the marsh you're from, Pogues and Kooks alike are asking the same question: when will season three of "Outer Banks" premiere? And the answer is . . . this month.

"Outer Banks" Season 3 Plot

At the end of season two, the Pogues and Cleo were stranded on an island in the middle of nowhere, and they appear to still be trapped there at the start of season three. For their part, the teens seem happy for the break, but it won't last long. The preview also teases the return of John B's presumed dead father, more of the relic-obsessed Carla, and at least one wild-animal chase scene.
