Netflix announced today that Outer Banks has been renewed for a second season. The good news was delivered via a video of the cast celebrating the pickup, which was posted on the streaming service's Twitter account.

The show premiered three months ago and quickly hit breakout status, regularly appearing in the Netflix Top 10 list during its release window. Critics offered generally high praise as well, noting its sense of adventure and likeability of the cast.

Set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the 10-episode series follows a close group of local teenaged friends known as the Pogues. After a hurricane shuts off the power during the summer season, it sparks numerous illicit events in its wake. There is a search for group leader's missing father, a high-stakes treasure hunt for gold, forbidden relationships, and an escalating conflict between the Pogues and their rivals that results in life-changing decisions.

In the show's celebration video, cast member Madelyn Cline notes that she'll "catch ya in the Bahamas," which, based on the season finale, seems to confirm at least a partial change of setting for Season 2. Look for a return in 2021.
