The fourth season of Netflix hit series Outer Banks has officially begun filming this Monday (June 12) in Charleston, South Carolina, as per the photographs of the cast and crew, who have been spotted on location.
The start of the filming was also confirmed by a few local casting calls looking for extras to work starting June 12. Netflix will officially announce and confirm the Season 4 production during its TUDUM 2023 event on June 17, 2023.
The filming was delayed but only for a couple of weeks and seems to be unhinged by the ongoing WGA strike. The writing was complete even before the third season aired, which also led to the show scoring an advance renewal, which rarely happens on Netflix. The fourth season is expected to take approximately six months to complete the filming. As per the official filming schedule, ‘Outer Banks’ Season 4 will wrap up filming on December 15, 2023.
The ending of Season 3 didn't leave the fans with any major cliffhanger as it shows a time-jump of 18 months and everything seems to be sorted. This might be related to a report that suggested that Outer Banks might wrap up its journey with Season 3 on Netflix. Two years back, we reported that Outer Banks is reportedly ending with the third season which will be the final season. The storyline of Season 3 now confirms that the main story and journey which Pogues started in Season 1 has ended. Outer Banks Season 4 will now start a fresh journey with a new treasure hunt, new characters, and new enemies.
At the end of Season 3, after John B and Sarah find the gold in the hidden city of El Dorado, Pogues were honored for solving the 500-year-old mystery of El Dorado. We saw the Pogues, who are now living a happy life, contacted by a man with a mysterious map and literature. The manuscript log belongs to a 1718 captain Edward Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard. So, we can expect Outer Banks Season 4 to go on some pirate hunting along with treasures.
The name "Blackbeard" was given to Edward Teach, an English pirate who was born in 1618 and was known for his ominous look and long, black beard. Logical. Blackbeard is thought to have begun his career as a sailor on privateer ships during Queen Anne's War, despite the fact that almost little is known about his early years. Later, he traveled up the Atlantic coast to the West Indies and former British territories. There was a legitimate reason why no sailor wanted to cross Blackbeard's ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge. A black flag with the image of a skeleton piercing a gory red heart waved above his vessel. As he seized control of other ships and stole their cargo, Blackbeard gained an infamous reputation as a brutal and vicious killer.
The returning cast of Season 4 includes Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow, Madison Bailey, Carlacia Grant, Austin North, and Drew Starkey. Series creators Jonas Pate, Josh Pate, and Shannon Burke will return as the showrunners and executive producers of the fourth season of “Outer Banks.”
