Outer Banks season 4 officially restarted filming on Monday, November 20, 2023, in a new location.
Reports from Star News and local outlets in Wilmington, North Carolina, indicate that filming will take place on November 20 and 21. Outer Banks is among the first Netflix shows to resume production.
Originally slated to be filmed in North Carolina, including Wilmington, production shifted to Charleston, South Carolina, in 2017 due to North Carolina’s HB-2. Netflix opted to relocate production to distance itself from the law.
The return to North Carolina is notable, especially considering the plot of season 4. The conclusion of season 3 hinted at a new treasure hunt involving the Pogues pursuing Blackbeard's treasure. Blackbeard, also known as Edward Teach, historically sailed the region.
Filming for Outer Banks season 4 commenced in June, and there were initial concerns that the season might not return until 2025. However, the recent resumption of production alleviates those worries.
The decision to resume filming in North Carolina adds a layer of geographical relevance to the storyline, aligning with the historical context of Blackbeard's presence in the region. Outer Banks season 4's return to its roots in North Carolina promises to bring fans a continuation of the treasure hunt saga initiated in the previous season.
