Filming during the pandemic took a lot of planning
Filming during the pandemic takes a lot of planning and a focus on safety, and the "Outer Banks" cast seems to be impressed with what their crew did making everyone feel secure on set. Actor Chase Stokes sent a sweet shout-out to the show's crew on Instagram, calling their second season a "labor of love."
"You have fought through adversity with a sense of humor. Sacrificed your time during a global pandemic to bring to life another incredibly compelling story. This isn’t an easy show to do, and for those that are there before we get to work, and those who stay when we leave. My heart is filled with gratitude for you. This is more than just a tv show. This has become a big ole’ family," he wrote.
Expect more romance in season two
Fans loved watching Stokes and Cline's characters, John B. and Sarah, relationship. Fans squealed with delight when the actors revealed that they're also dating in real life. Cline said viewers can expect more romance in the second season when she recently spoke with Elle.
"I can't wait to see where the story goes when John B and Sarah get to the Bahamas. My wish is that we continue to see Sarah come into her own and grow into this badass," she said in an interview with the website. "I want her to match John B's crazy — like a Bonnie and Clyde-type dynamic between them. That sounds like a lot of fun to play as an actor. As far as Sarah goes, I want to see her grow into her own person, and not be under the influence or control of her dad."

Since filming just wrapped up, odds are we'll have to wait a while before the second season of "Outer Banks" premieres. But the good news is, it's on its way and there's plenty of time to binge-watch the first season if you haven't already!
