With television productions shutting down due to the current coronavirus pandemic, most of our favorite TV shows have come to an abrupt halt. The movies are affected too, with many releases pushed either later into the year or to next year.

However, this is where streaming services come to the rescue. Having filmed earlier, Netflix, Quibi and other platforms have a slew of releases coming in April. Among them is 'Outer Banks', a coming-of-age story for young adults that will be released on Netflix. Read on to know more details of the show.


Release date

The first season of 'Outer Banks' will be released on Netflix on April 15.


'Outer Banks' is 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.

Madison Bailey is an actress known for her roles in 'Black Lightning', 'Swamp Murders' and 'Constantine'. She plays the role of Kiara, an athletic hippy chick with a socialist streak, and although she’d loathe to admit it, she’s from a rich family.


Charles Esten

Charles Esten is known for his roles in 'Nashville', 'The Postman' and 'Swing Vote'. He plays the role of Ward Cameron, a wealthy (self-made) businessman, who exudes a casual authority and is Sarah & Rafe’s father. He is the patriarch of Outer Banks society — smooth, competent, at home in the upper-class world, but was born blue-collar.


Jonathan Daviss plays Pope, the smartest of the Pogues, and has a scholarship on the line — his ticket to a life outside of the Outer Banks. Rudy Pankow plays JJ, John B’s oldest friend and a fellow Pogue. He’s had a rough home life and is feisty yet troubled – a trickster, a hustler, funny, brave, a great liar, and loyal to a fault. 

Austin North plays Topper, the king of the Kooks, a nationally ranked surfer, and Sarah’s boyfriend. Drew Starkey plays Sarah’s older brother, Rafe, a college dropout and a bad influence who frequently leads his sister and her friends astray. 



'Outer Banks' was created by Jonas Pate, Josh Pate and Shannon Burke who also serve as executive producers. Jonas and Josh Pate are known for their work on 'The Grave', 'Deceiver' and 'The Take'. Shannon Burke previously worked as a consultant on 'Syriana'.
