Welcome to the Outer Banks, where it's Pogues vs. Kooks 24/7, and only one will get to the rule the island that they call home. The new Netflix series, Outer Banks, follows a group of local teens, called Pogues, as they try to find the treasure hidden in their hometown. But the island’s high-class vacation kids, named the Kooks, will stop at nothing to keep them from moving on up in the world. Fans are already freaking out over the show’s big cliffhanger and are trying to figure out what's next for John B., Kie, Pope, JJ, and Sarah.

So will we be going back to the OBX for another season? Here are all our big questions and everything you need to know about season two of Outer Banks.

*Major spoilers for season 1 of Outer Banks below!*

Is season two of Outer Banks happening?

Yes, it is! Netflix officially announced the news on July 24 and even shared a new teaser art to get fans excited over the big news.

Who is coming back for season two?

Along with the season 2 announcement, Netflix confirmed that the main cast will all be returning. Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow, Austin North, Drew Starkey, Deion Smith, and Charles Esten are all set to reprise their roles.

With this news, it's a good guess we'll see all our favorite Pogues reunited together again. Since John B. and Sarah’s rescuers were on their way to the Bahamas at the end of the season, we think we’ll find the two in Nassau when the show picks back up. With Kie, JJ, and Pope still back at the OBX, we bet the group’s next task will be to get John B. and Sarah back home.

What will season two be about?

Season two will likely pick up where we left off in season one, with John B. and Sarah on their way to the Bahamas to try to get the gold back. Kie, JJ, and Pope will be dealing with the aftermath of the SBI escape and their supposed deaths. Ward will be facing the consequences for his actions as the SBI and local police discovered he is the one behind the death of John B's dad. Either way, the Outer Banks will certainly never be the same.

When will season two come out?

With most Netflix productions on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, it might take longer than usual for the show to return to production. The good news is that the show is centered around the summer, so there is a chance production could start before the next school year. Netflix usually brings back shows within a year, so if everything goes as planned, Outer Banks will likely be scheduled to return in April 2021.

What does the cast hope for season two?

Fans aren't the only ones waiting for a season two renewal. Seventeen got to talk to the cast of Outer Banks and they are super excited about possibly coming back to the OBX to continue to tell their crazy story. Madison Bailey, who plays Kie, says fans should expect some major revenge coming from the Pogues.

"There’s gonna be a whole new dynamic. How do you go about life without your best friend? I think it’s going to be rough on everyone," she told Seventeen in an exclusive interview. "And we’re going to have to come together and take care of each other now more than ever. But revenge is going to be on all of our minds."

Jonathan Daviss, who plays Pope, agrees and says that this will be the Pogue's biggest lesson yet.

"I'm interested to see if we do move forward, potentially with the second season, where the Pogues relationship is going to be without John B," he told Seventeen exclusively. "Are they going to stick together as a family? Are they going to separate because of it? Is that relationship going to stick or are they going to be afraid? It's something interesting to explore."

Rudy Pankow, who plays JJ, agrees and says that it will likely bring the remaining Pogues together like never before.

"Justice is going to be served, but it's just a matter of who does it. I think I really want to see him struggle with coming to terms with the fact that his best friend is gone, and what's the point in trying any more?" he told Seventeen exclusively. "I think that's something that I want to see. And, if that doesn't happen, that's okay. But I think that would be a great arc for JJ and the Pogues to fall apart until we know John B is back."
