The Pogues Journey Continues

The popular Netflix show, “Outer Banks,” has officially been renewed for a fourth season.

Before the third season was release on Feb. 23, it was announced that the fan-favorite teen drama had another season in the works. The show starring Chase Stokes as John B., Madelyn Cline as Sarah Cameron, Rudy Pankow as JJ, Jonathan Davis as Pope and Madison Bailey as Kiara has quickly become a staple in many households.

“This show does a really great job keeping you on the edge of your seat, I never know what is going to happen next,” said junior Teresa Andersen.

The mysterious drama set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, focuses around the Pogues all going on a treasure hunt linked to the disappearance of John B’s father. The term Pogues refers to the working-class teenagers who come from modest backgrounds and struggle to make ends meet. Despite their economic challenges, they share a deep bond and are always there for each other, no matter what.

On the other side of the island there are the Kooks, or the wealthier teens who are portrayed as the main rivals to the Pogues. After Sarah and John B. cross paths, her loyalty to the Kooks cracks and she joins the Pogues. The show follows the class issues, heartbreak, relationships and unexpected turn of events that the tight-knit group of teens face in order to uncover the truth.

“Each season has its own plot and every season ends with a new twist that keeps people coming back,” said sophomore Nicole Renganeschi.

The unpredictability and complexity of the show has captured audiences for the past three years.

“Outer Banks” season finales always end in a cliffhanger or shocking twist. The newest season of the show ended quite explosively. Tragedy struck and fans were left in shock as the season concluded.

“The eighteen month jump between the two character deaths was a lot to process. In the new season, I’m also really interested to see the dynamic between the Kooks and the Pogues now that the Pogues have been honored and credited by the town for finding El Dorado,” said junior Lilly Wilson.

At their “Poguelandia” event, the cast and crew celebrated the release of the third season, as well as surprising the crowd with the announcement of a fourth season. In a press release regarding the event and big announcement, Netflix explained that there is plenty in store for the Pogues next season.

“The Pogues are enjoying the adventure of a lifetime, and now we get to map out more twists and turns as the joyride continues into season four of Outer Banks,” Netflix said.

More details about the new season and its release date will be shared at a later time.

“I am really interested to see what is going to happen with all of the couples and their new adventures they are going to take on,” said junior Molly Teeter.

“Last season was amazing. There were so many twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting so I’m excited to see what the rest of the series has in store,” said Andersen.

“I think this show just reminds you what it’s like to be a kid. While they deal with very serious stuff, they still have fun as teenagers. Everyone has their story, what you see is what they choose to show, not always the truth. The show is a great watch to get you through the winter and into a summer mood,” said sophomore Tori Miller.
