Monsters & Critics reported recent rumors that Tik Tok star Charli D’Amelio will appear in Outer Banks Season 2.
The rumor caused a stir on social media, with hundreds of fans taking to Twitter to comment. Some fans wanted D’Amelio to appear on the show while others opposed it.
One fan even started a petition on Change.Org to dissuade the showrunners from casting D’Amelio in the upcoming season.

The rumor gained further traction after D’Amelio, the show creators, and Netflix failed to deny or confirm it. Show star Chase Stokes eventually denied the rumor in a video posted on TikTok on June 21.
Outer Banks is created and executive produced by Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke.
What is Outer Banks about?
Outer Banks follows John B (Chase Stokes) and his friends, The Pogues, who are investigating what happened to John B’s missing father, Big John.
The Pogues discover that Big John went missing after teaming up with a wealthy local, Ward Cameron, to find a lost ship believed to have sunk off the coast of North Carolina, with gold worth $400 million.
Big John left his son clues about where the missing gold was hidden and John B leads the Pogues on a desperate mission to find the gold before others do.
The Pogues finally find the gold buried in an abandoned water well on an old property. But while the Pogues struggle with distraction arising from infighting within the group and conflicts with the rival gang, the Kooks, Warden retrieves the gold and flies it out.
In the desperate final effort to fly the gold out of the country, Ward’s son, Rafe, murders Sheriff Peterkin who had been investigating Big John’s death.
Ward then frames John B for the murder. With the police after him, John B is forced to make a daring escape with his girlfriend, Sarah (Ward’s daughter), by driving a boat into a deadly storm in open seas.
Outer Banks Season 2 plot
Outer Banks Season 2 will pick up where Season 1 left off.
In the season finale, John B and Sarah make a daring escape from the authorities by driving a boat into a deadly storm in pitch-black darkness.
They survive the storm and are rescued at dawn by a boat out at sea.
Viewers learn in the closing scenes that John B and Sarah are going to the Bahamas to find the gold that Ward flew out.
Madelyn Cline, who portrayed Sarah Cameron, told Entertainment Tonight that in Outer Bands Season 2, Sarah and John B will continue their hunt for the gold in Nassau.
She also teased that Ward will get his comeuppance in the upcoming season.
“All of these puppet strings Ward has kind of been playing are now coming loose and he doesn’t really have control over his world anymore. I feel like there definitely will be consequences for Ward or Rafe, so that will be interesting to see how that plays out.”
Outer Banks Season 1 is streaming on Netflix.
