AceShowbiz – The brains behind hit Netflix series “Outer Banks” has assured fans there’s more to come following the season one cliffhanger.
Creator and showrunner Jonas Pate tells EW.com he has plans to make the show a five-season run, and he’s just waiting to get the OK from bosses at the streaming site.
“Ever since we started, we always viewed it as something that was probably, like, a four-season, maybe five-season show, but definitely four seasons. We’ve sort of long-arced it out pretty far. I’m just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories.”
The 10-episode drama follows the fortunes of four friends searching North Carolina’s “Outer Banks” for the wreckage of the Royal Merchant ship, which sunk with gold on board. It stars Chase Stokes, Madison Bailey, Rudy Pankow and Jonathan Daviss as the pals, with Madelyn Cline playing love interest Sarah Cameron.
“We love the mashup of friends on this fantasy thrilling adventure, and we feel like we really just played the opening round of that story,” Pate adds. “And now that the audience knows our characters and the baseline engine of the mystery is going, we just feel like we have a lot more good twists and turns left to explore, so we’re excited for more.”
