In South America, John B and Sarah find El Dorado and retrieve a piece of gold to prove its existence. When they return from the cave, Singh is waiting and holds them at gunpoint, demanding the location of the gold. To escape, John B’s father, Big John, throws a stick of dynamite at the entrance, killing Singh.

After the explosion, John B, Sarah, and Big John reunite with the Pogues outside the cave. However, Ward Cameron shows up and holds them at gunpoint. When one of Singh’s men arrives and points a gun at Sarah, Ward sacrifices himself by pushing the gunman off the cliff, killing them both. Though the Pogues reach their boat safely, Big John collapses and dies due to blood loss from an earlier injury.

The final scene of Outer Banks season 3 featured an 18-month jump in time. John B and Sarah own a surf shop, Kiara works to save the turtles, JJ buys a charter boat, and Pope readies for college. Pope is also in a relationship with Cleo. The Pogues convene for a ceremony to honor their discovery of El Dorado.

The Pogues’ celebration is interrupted by a mysterious man, who asks the group to examine a captain’s log owned by Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard the pirate. The log could be the key to finding his gold. Season 4 will continue this storyline as the Pogues search for Blackbeard’s hidden treasure.

Outer Banks is one of Netflix’s most popular shows. The passionate fan base led to the streamer greenlighting a fourth season days before the third season premiered in February 2023. As of May 2024, Outer Banks season 5 has not been announced. However, the show will likely receive a fifth season because of its strong viewership.

Outer Banks co-creators Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke originally planned for the series to last four to five seasons. However, Josh explained in a February 2023 interview with EW that the number of seasons could change.

“I don’t know if I could put a real number on it right now — how long it takes to get to that ending might expand, but we now know the shape of the end of the story,” Josh said. “We’re going to take it as long as we can, for sure.”

Everything you need to know about Andor season 2
Cassian aims his gun in Andor.

Andor is arguably Lucasfilm's crowning achievement of the 21st century. While that may be up for debate, there's no denying the success of Andor season 1, culminating with universal acclaim from critics and eight Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series. It's certainly the most mature Star Wars project to date.

Created by Tony Gilroy, Andor stars Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, the petty thief who will eventually become a key leader and spy for the Rebel Alliance. Andor is a prequel set five years before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the film where Luna first introduced audiences to Cassian. It's been a long time since Andor season 1 ended in November 2022. Slowly but surely, season 2 is on the way. Below is everything you need to know about Andor season 2.
Is there a release date for Andor season 2?
There is no release date for Andor season 2 yet. Andor season 2 was originally scheduled to be released in August 2024, two years after season 1 premiered. However, the series experienced several production delays while filming because of the 2023 Hollywood labor disputes. Therefore, Andor season 2 had to move its late summer 2024 release date.

Everything you need to know about Cobra Kai season 6

In 2018, Sony Pictures TV teamed up with YouTube Red to produce Cobra Kai, a sequel series to the hit Karate Kid films from the 1980s. Most notably, both of The Karate Kid's surviving primary stars, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, signed on to reprise their respective roles as former rivals Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. The show picked up decades later, as Johnny revived the Cobra Kai dojo to turn his life around and mentor the next generation of martial arts enthusiasts. Daniel took that as a sign to start up his own dojo, and his rivalry with Johnny was born again.

Netflix picked up Cobra Kai after the second season, and the show has become an even bigger hit. Now, Cobra Kai is in production on its sixth and final season, but this series may not be the end of the Miyagi-verse that began in 1984 with The Karate Kid. Here's everything we know about Cobra Kai season 6 to prepare you for the new season.

Two men walk in The Fast and the Furious Present: Hobbs & Shaw.

In 2019, the Fast & Furious universe expanded with the franchise's first spinoff, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. The buddy action comedy starred Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (Black Adam) and Jason Statham (The Beekeeper) as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, two characters introduced in previous Fast Saga entries.
