I’m just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories.”

Season 2 ‘Outer Banks’ will happen within the Bahamas

By the tip of season 1, followers know John B and Sarah are on their method to the Bahamas — however the remainder of the Pogues don’t. “The Pogues think that John B and Sarah are dead,” Pate admitted. “[That gives] us some dramatic possibilities that we could explore before we get them all reunited.” A terrifying thought, sure, however Pate says the Pogues will finally should reunite. “We love that part of the show, having the Pogues together. That’s when we feel like this show is working the best.”

As for season 2’s setting, followers assume it might be primarily in Nassau. “We’ll definitely have at least a part of season 2 that’ll take place in the Bahamas, but it’ll all come back to the Outer Banks because that’s our spiritual home,” Pate clarified, including: “We’ll get back to the Outer Banks pretty quickly, but there’ll be definitely an episode or two that that has some Bahamas in it.” 

The Kooks will play a much bigger position in season 2 

Throughout season 1, most of the Kooks — together with Sarah Cameron’s ex-boyfriend, Topper (Austin North), and her older brother, Rafe (Drew Starkey) took a again seat. That is till Rafe shoots and kills Sherrif Peterkin (Adina Porter) to show himself worthy to his father.

“We want to continue to develop Rafe’s pathology as he starts to come apart after [murdering] Peterkin,” Pate defined. “So he’ll play a big part in season 2, for sure. And we really love the performance that [Austin North] gave as Topper, so he’s going to play a pretty big role as well. A big debate will be whether he does the right thing or the class thing, so that’ll be an ongoing story line in season 2.”

Season 2 of ‘Outer Banks’ will function new mysteries 

Aside from the attractive forged, a lot of the attraction of Outer Banks comes from the compelling narratives. In season 1, the Pogues dive into the thriller of John B’s father’s disappearance and discovering the lacking $400 million. In season 2, Pate says followers can anticipate new mysteries and new villains, too. “It all comes off the same spine of the same story [in season 1], but it branches out in ways that hopefully the audience won’t see coming.”
