Wake up, Pogues, we're in paradise! That's right, it's time to return to Poguelandia and prepare for what's bound to be an epic treasure hunt with Outer Banks season 3.

The teen drama has been a fan-favorite on Netflix since it debuted in 2020, and finally the more than year-long wait for season 3 is just about over. 

Here's everything you need to know about the new season of Outer Banks.

Outer Banks season 3 release date

All 10 episodes of season 3 begin streaming on February 23, only on Netflix.

Outer Banks season 3 plot

The official summary reads: 

"After losing the gold and fleeing the Outer Banks, season 3 finds the Pogues washed ashore on a desert island that, for a brief moment, seems like an idyllic home. Officially deemed "Poguelandia," the island's newest residents spend their days fishing, swimming and reveling in the carefree lifestyle of their temporary dwelling. But things quickly go south for John B, Sarah, Kiara, Pope, JJ and Cleo when they find themselves once again caught up in a race for the treasure, quite literally running for their lives. They're broke and far from home, they can't trust anyone, Ward and Rafe are hungry for revenge, and there's a ruthless Caribbean Don who will stop at nothing to find the bounty. Was the treasure ever within their reach? Or was it all a trap to stop them once and for all? Either way, it's the Pogues against the world — and the only way out is together."
