There is a great deal of mystery in-store with the Season 2 premiere of Outer Banks on Netflix on Friday, July 9, and we can hardly wait.

The coming-of-age story (think a blend of The O.C. and Veronica Mars) follows a tight-knit group of local teens (the “Pogues”) in the beach destination of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

These teenagers from “the wrong side of the tracks” stumble upon a treasure map that unearths a long-buried secret. And the waterways, boating, beachfront mansions, and high-society events all paint a colorful backdrop for the show.

The riveting Season 1 drama included the hunt for the Royal Merchant gold that ended with a police officer dead and John B framed for his murder.

“Season 2 finds John B (Chase Stokes) and Sarah Cameron (Madelyn Cline) on the run and clear in over their heads, after heading to the Bahamas,” according to a Netflix release.

“New friends also bring new foes as they are back on the trail of the gold, while the stakes for Kiara (Madison Bailey), Pope (Jonathan Daviss), and JJ (Rudy Pankow, rapidly escalate at home.”

It is clear that the adventure of a lifetime awaits, but uncharted waters ahead mean that the Pogues must do all they can to make it out alive. Rest assured, there will be more personal drama involving the personal relationships in Season 2.

Among the pressing questions – with the $430 million still in the game, will uncovering a newfound secret reunite the group on a fresh mission?

We are eager to see our favorite Pogues make their way back together after a hurricane separated them during the Season 1 finale, leaving two (John B and Sarah) presumed dead. The rest of the Pogues start off season 2 by mourning their two friends, who they believe died in the storm when their boat sank.

According to Stokes, viewers can expect the new season to be more intense and “quite the roller coaster,” he told EW. “Last season ended with John B and Sarah realizing that they’re en route to Nassau, which they know is where Ward [Charles Esten] has the gold, so they know they’re going in the right direction,” Stokes says. “But not with the looming reality that John B is wanted for a murder that he didn’t commit.”

Stokes added that “John B is one of the most glass-half-full individuals I’ve ever come across, so he’s always coming at things from an optimistic mindset. But it will be interesting to see how he operates with a murder charge hanging over his head and the majority of the world thinking he killed a police officer.”
