The series has a strong Goonies vibe to it as it centers around a mystery and treasure hunt that promises untold riches, while also giving off a steamy teen romance feel from classics like The O.C. and Dawson’s Creek.
Outer Banks is described as “a coming-of-age story that follows a tight-knit group of local teens (the ‘Pogues’) in the beach vacation destination of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. When a hurricane kills the power for the summer season, it sets off a chain of illicit events that force the friends to make life-altering decisions. The search for their ringleader’s missing father, forbidden romances, a high-stakes treasure hunt, and the escalating conflict between the Pogues and their rivals turn their summer into one filled with mystery and adventure they’ll never forget.”
Outer Banks stars Chase Stokes as John B, Rudy Pankow as J.J., Jonathan Daviss as Pope, Madison Bailey as Kiara, Madelyn Cline as Sarah Cameron, Charles Esten as Ward Cameron, Austin North as Topper, and Drew Starkey as Rafe Cameron.
The new Netflix mystery-thriller is from co-creators/showrunners/executive producers Jonas Pate, Josh Pate, and Shannon Burke.
Outer Banks debuts on Netflix on April 15, with each episode being an hour-long in the 10-episode series.
