Outer Banks Creator Says He Has Plans For Season 4 and 5

The creator of Outer Banks says he has plans for season four and five of the hit show.

Yes, it's only been a couple of weeks since Jonas Pate officially got the green light for a second series of the teen drama, but he is already looking well into the future.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the 50-year-old revealed that he and his team had always planned for a long-running series and that ideas had been percolating for some time.

He told the publication: "Ever since we started, we always viewed it as something that was probably like a four-season, maybe five-season show, but definitely four seasons.

"We've sort of long-arced it out pretty far. I'm just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories."

He went on: "We love the mashup of friends on this fantasy thrilling adventure, and we feel like we really just played the opening round of that story.

"And now that the audience knows our characters and the baseline engine of the mystery is going, we just feel like we have a lot more good twists and turns left to explore, so we're excited for more."

Outer Banks Creator Says Netflix 'Green-Lit' Second Season

For those of you who haven't seen it, the drama centres on 17-year-old John B (played by Chase Stokes) who lives on the titular Outer Banks, an island chain in North Carolina - and his group of friends, the Pogues.

John B enlists the help of his pals JJ (Rudy Pankow), Kiara (Madison Bailey) and Pope (Jonathan Daviss) to help him search for a legendary multi-million-dollar treasure that he reckons is linked to his dad's disappearance.

Now, if you've not seen or finished the first season, this is where you should stop reading. Stop now.

The opening series of the show left fans on a bit of a cliffhanger, with John B and Sarah presumed dead.

Discussing the ending, Pate said: "We debated exactly where to end it. We sort of knew the rough architecture of the whole thing. And we actually shot a couple different versions of the same idea to play with how we were going to end it because we just wanted a few to see before we settled on the one that we did."

He did reveal, however, that the second series will continue will delve deeper into the villainous Ward's storyline.

Adding: "Ward is a very crafty character, as you saw in the first season. He's very slippery. And he's willing to bend the truth and do all kinds of things that will drive you crazy because you just want him to get justice, and I think we'll ride that line a little longer in season two.

"But we'll also introduce some new villains too. So the story will broaden a little bit as we go into season two."
