Outer Banks Reveals Surprising Returns, Big Action And Pogues On The Road To El Dorado In Season 3 Trailer

It's almost time to go back to the OBX with our favorite castaways! With Season 3 of Outer Banks coming soon, the first full trailer has finally dropped for Netflix's hit series, and it teases major returns by unexpected characters, big action and the Pogues going on a journey to El Dorado. 

Following the shocking Season 2 finale, a lot was left up in the air, and with Season 3 slated on the 2023 TV schedule for February 23, we’ll finally get to see what happens to the Pogues soon. I’d say based on this trailer, we’re going to be in for a wildly dangerous ride as the cast of Outer Banks goes on what looks like their biggest adventure yet. 

Big Characters Were Revealed In The Outer Banks Season 3 Trailer

Breaking the trailer down a bit, we found out one major character is making his return, and then there was a huge reveal of a character we all thought was dead. 

The massive reveal in this trailer is that John B.'s dad, Big John is in fact not dead. He's been in hiding, and the trailer shows the reunion of the father and son duo played by Charles Halford and Chase Stokes, respectively. John B. mentions in the video that the treasure was always a way out for him and his father, well, now it looks like they’ll be on that treasure hunt together. 

The other big reveal came with the revelation that Sarah Cameron's dad, Ward is still kicking and trying to take down the Pogues. However, the trailer also teased an unlikely bargain between the father and daughter, which will be interesting to see play out. So, I think it's safe to say with Ward 100% in the picture, the season will be more dangerous and action-packed because of it. 

The Outer Banks Trailer Teases Big Action

Like the two seasons before it, the Season 3 trailer teases big action and epic set pieces. Considering when we left the Pogues they were stranded on a deserted island, and from teaser images, we know they get off the island a new, more dangerous, adventure is bound to happen. I'd imagine because of all this we're in for some epic sequences as the young castaways make their way back to the Outer Banks, and apparently journey to El Dorado.

From a plane showing up on the island to watching Pope and JJ slide down an elevator shaft, to motorcycle stunts, exciting (and scary) chases through a jungle, and I’d assume much, much more, this is going to be an action-packed death-defying adventure. That's because if there’s one thing I know about Outer Banks: they know how to raise the stakes and push these characters to their limits by way of big action and dangerous adventure. 

The Pogues Are On The Road To El Dorado

That's right, this season the treasure hunt is to find the lost city of El Dorado. If you thought gold and a giant gold cross weren't enough, well neither did the OBX team, because this season they're going on a bigger journey than ever before. 

In the voice over, John B. says he’s starting to wonder if the treasure was something to fight for or simply a trap. It seems like a little bit of both, as the trailer shows Kiara looking at who I’d presume is the big bad, while he talks to her about El Dorado, and if her friends know anything about it. 

While there are still a lot of questions surrounding Season 3 of Outer Banks, this new trailer gave us a new look at the adventure ahead for the Pogues. And I think it’s safe to say it will be bigger and better than their first two quests. 

You’ll be able to watch Season 3 of Outer Banks in a few short weeks, but for now, you can watch the first two seasons of the hit series with a Netflix subscription
