We have a lot of time on our hands these days. But, reruns of old favourites like Gossip Girl, The O.C. and Pretty Little Liars just isn't cutting it anymore. Netflix is here to fill the void, releasing the first trailer for its highly-anticipated new teen drama that's been likened to some of our favourite vintage series.
Watch The Trailer Below:
Outer Banks looks like the perfect hybrid, ready to turn into our newest obsession. The show takes place on North Carolina's idyllic Outer Banks: sunny and beachy but with, apparently, a major class divide. You're either super rich or working two jobs in this town, per narrator John Booker Rutledge (Chase Stokes). The central characters in this story are in the latter category, which is why when they find out John's missing father somehow acquired $400 million in gold, all hell breaks loose. What transpires is an all-out treasure hunt, mixed with saucy romance and clash collisions between the Outer Banks's wealthy and working class.
Netflix's official description reads, "Outer Banks is a coming-of-age story that follows a tight-knit group of local teens (a.k.a the Pogues) in 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."
No word yet on when the series will drop in Aus, but we're hoping ASAP.
