The Pogues Are Back In The New Teaser For Outer Banks Season 3

The second season of "Outer Banks" ended with a major cliffhanger that laid a strong foundation for plenty of action heading into Season 3. After facing off against Ward (Charles Esten) and narrowly losing the treasure once again, John B (Chase Stokes), Kiara (Madison Bailey), Pope (Jonathan Daviss), JJ (Rudy Pankow), Sarah (Madelyn Cline), and Cleo (Carlacia Grant) are left stranded on a seemingly uninhabited island. With Ward in possession of the Royal Merchant gold and the Cross of Santo Domingo, John B and his friends don't have much left to lose. However, before they can try to take back what's rightfully theirs, they'll have to find a way back to civilization first.

Last season brought with it another mystery, as well as some new enemies and allies for our rag-tag group of protagonists — issues that will continue to play a role in the narrative. The ending of Season 2 also unveiled a shocking revelation that's sure to tilt John B's world on its axis. Now that the official teaser trailer has been released, fans can get a glimpse at what's in store for the Pogues in Season 3. 

The treasure hunt is far from over

With plenty of rivalries and unanswered questions left over from Season 2, the plot could go in any number of directions moving forward. The trailer hints at a season full of tension and desperation, despite the sunny, palm-tree-dotted skyline acting as the backdrop. "My pops always said 'nothing good comes easy, nothing worthy is given,'" John B narrates as we're shown our teen heroes lounging on the shores of the deserted island they've dubbed Poguelandia. "The question is: What are you willing to do to win?"

That advice from his father is bound to come in handy at some point in Season 3, now that it's been confirmed that Big John Routledge (Charles Halford), whose death acted as a catalyst for the main conflict of Season 1, is actually alive. Even though island living seems to suit them, the Pogues have unfinished business to attend to and they're not out of the woods yet. The stakes are higher than ever now that they've got Ward and the treasure cornered, but the kids will need more than luck to get what they're owed. Even though they're clever, they're still teenagers with limited resources who have gotten in over their heads. If they approach their problems with the same reckless determination that sends JJ diving off a cliff in Poguelandia, then they're sure to wrestle up some trouble. According to People, the highly anticipated third season is expected to hit Netflix sometime in 2023.
