The "Outer Banks" crew will be back for Season 3 of the Charleston-filmed show that follows a group of adventurous teenagers as they embark on an epic treasure hunt. 

Netflix has officially renewed the show four months after the Season 2 premiere on July 30. A premiere date for Season 3 has not yet been set. 

According to Netflix, "Outer Banks" was the streaming service's most-watched English-language series globally for a full month after the Season 2 debut. The young adult drama peaked at 2.1 billion minutes viewed during the week of Aug. 2. 

"Outer Banks" also won a People's Choice Award for most binge-worthy show. 

Its stars, Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow, Austin North, Drew Starkey and Charles Esten, are all set to return to their roles in the third season. Carlacia Grant, who had a recurring role in Season 2, has been promoted to a series regular this time around. 

Jonas and Josh Pate and Shannon Burke, who created the show, are slated to come back as showrunners and executive producers. 

While last season's filming was split between Charleston and the Bahamas, it has not been announced where Season 3 will be filmed.

With open storylines still hanging based on scenes in the Lowcountry, it is almost certain at least part of the next season will be filmed in Charleston. 

According to Jonas Pate, "Outer Banks" brought $50 million to the local economy during its first season of filming and more than $55 million was expected to be spent during the second season.
