Here’s what we know about the length of time the Outer Banks actors will spend filming the upcoming season, as well as some fan conjecture regarding the season’s release date.
The director of ‘Outer Banks’ posts on season 3 shooting now.
On Feb. 13, 2022, director Valerie Weiss captioned an Instagram picture of the Outer Banks cast and crew, “Big love to my @obx family as they begin Season 3 tomorrow!!!! I’ll see you all shortly.”
Many fans were already aware that production would begin in February 2022. Thus, Weiss’ statement came as no surprise. However, now that the shooting has begun, fans are eager to learn when it will complete since this brings them one step closer to season 3.
The next season of ‘Outer Banks’ is expected to conclude production in August 2022.
According to What’s On Netflix, Outer Banks Season 3 will conclude shooting on Aug. 19, 2022. Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, there may be some filming delays, like with season 2. However, for the time being, that is the projected filming timeline.

Some fans on Reddit believe Netflix will release the next season in August due to an error in the production schedule. “It could easily be released in mid-to-late-August,” they said in a statement, assuming shooting concludes in May or June. At the time of publishing, no specific filming schedule had been announced.
The cast of ‘Outer Banks’ has been sighted going to the set.
