Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of Top 10 Shows Like Outer Banks To Watch. The second season of Netflix’s hit teen drama Outer Banks has recently premiered on the streaming platform, and the show’s diehard fans have likely already binged the entire season twice. Because of this, many people are going to be looking for a new show to fill the void while we wait for Outer Banks’ third season. So let’s get started.

1. Blood & Treasure (Available on Amazon Prime) 

Blood & Treasure is an adventure drama series that airs on CBS. However, the show’s entire first season is currently available for streaming on Amazon Prime. The series originally premiered on May 21 of 2019, and it was renewed for a second season the following month. Outer Banks fans looking for a bit more adventure may find what they’re looking for in this show about a fugitive and an art expert who team up to try and catch a notable terrorist that funds his terrorism with stolen artwork. Perched somewhere between an Indiana Jones movie, National Treasure, and Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, those who like a bit of mystery should trying binging this show’s first season! 

2. The O.C. (Available on HBO Max) 

The O.C. is a teen drama series that first aired on the Fox network in August of 2003. While Blood & Treasure would be a good choice for Outer Banks fans looking to get their fix of mindless adventure and fun, The O.C. would be a good choice for Outer Banks fans looking to get their fix of good ole’ teen drama. The show ran for four seasons, and all four seasons are currently available for streaming on HBO Max. The show is named after Orange County, and follows a group of teens trying to navigate their social lives in that notable metropolitan area of Los Angeles. The main character of The O.C. is Ryan Atwood, portrayed by actor Ben McKenzie. Troubled yet gifted, Ryan comes from a broken home and finds himself an alien when he is adopted by the wealthy couple of Sandy and Kirsten Cohen, bringing him to Orange County. The show focuses on Ryan’s attempts not to stand out too much in his new setting due to his lower-class background. In addition to Ben McKenzie, the show also features Rachel Bilson, Mischa Barton, and Adam Brody. Sadly, this semi-realistic show is completely lacking in science fiction and fantasy plots. 

3. Ragnarok (Available on Netflix) 

If Blood & Treasure and The O.C. don’t scratch your itch for the fantastical, fans of Outer Banks may want to check out Ragnarok, also available on Netflix. The fantasy drama first premiered in 2020 and follows the adventures of a boy who finds out he’s the reincarnation of Thor and is subsequently tasked with… ending global warming. Although it’s initially just reincarnated Thor, other reincarnated gods have shown up since the show’s premiere. The first season premiered in January of 2020, and a second season followed in May of 2021. If you’re a fantasy-loving television viewer that has issues with corporate malfeasance, check Ragnarok out! 

4. Summertime (Available on Netflix) 

Summertime is another Netflix show, this time an Italian drama series that premiered in 2020. This is another one that doesn’t have much science fiction or fantasy but does certainly scratch the itch for teen drama. As well, the show’s beautiful Italian location should prove the perfect antidote for those who have been spending too much time in Outer Banks’ North Carolina setting. The romantic and soapy show is based on a series of books of the same name. 

5. Spinning Out (Available on Netflix) 

Here’s another drama on Netflix. Spinning Out premiered in January of 2020. This show was canceled after only one season. However, that single season still stands as an excellent binge watch for those that need a little bit of drama in their lives. The series follows an ice skater trying to make a change in her life after suffering a serious injury. Those looking for an idiosyncratic melodrama will find much to love, just don’t get your hopes up that the show will continue! 

6. Dawson’s Creek (Available on Netflix and Hulu) 

Even before The O.C., there was Dawson’s Creek. Those who enjoy the teen drama of Outer Banks may want to go back to one of the seminal teen dramas that helped popularize the craze: Kevin Williamson’s Dawson’s Creek. Although the show has essentially become a meme in the years since the peak of its popularity, modern television viewers may be surprised by how much they can get out of this classic primetime soap opera. The show originally premiered on The WB Television Network in 1998. It lasted until 2003 and starred such notable celebrities as James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, and Michelle Williams. 

7. The Wilds (Available on Amazon Prime) 

The Wilds is another drama series, this time having originally premiered on Amazon Prime in early 2020. The show centers around several teenage girls that are left deserted on an island in the wake of a plane crash. However, it turns out that they are actually the unwitting subjects of a social experiment, like The Truman Show meets Survivor. The show received praise upon the premiere of its first season and was subsequently renewed for a second. There’s plenty of drama involved, and also a nice conspiratorial edge that will give fans of Outer Banks something more to chew on. Fans can look forward to the second season while binging the first, which will make the binge more rewarding! 

8. Panic (Available on Amazon Prime) 

Panic is another Amazon Prime original series, having premiered in May of 2021. Sadly, this is another series that wasn’t renewed for a second season after its first, but that once again doesn’t make the first season any less fun to binge! This teen drama series was based upon the novel of the same name by author Lauren Oliver. The show focuses on a coming-of-age ritual that occurs for graduating high school students in a strange small town in Texas. In addition to satiating the appetite of Outer Banks fans, the show may also prove interesting to those who enjoyed the thrills provided by The Hunger Games’ titular survival challenge. 

9. Elite (Available on Netflix) 

Elite is a Spanish teen drama that premiered on Netflix in 2018. The show is currently on its fourth season, with the fifth season expected to drop on the platform in 2022. Of course, this means that those with a lot of time on their hands are going to get their money’s worth right off the bat with this Outer Banks alternative. The show is a fairly straightforward teen drama, just a little bit spicier. This is due both to the show’s setting, as well as to its refusal to steer clear of sensitive topics. The show sidesteps the clichés of the genre by focusing on intense and diverse sexual themes, and also by providing a longstanding mystery element. The series follows three friends from a working-class background that are enrolled at an elite private school. Like The O.C., much of the conflict revolves around the culture clash that ensues when these working-class kids are brought into a social world that’s a bit beyond their comprehension. In addition to the show’s campy drama, there’s also a murder mystery that is woven throughout the show’s many seasons, with each of the show’s episodes occurring in two separate timelines. Four seasons of the show are currently available for streaming, and you’ll have plenty of time to binge them all before the fifth season premieres in 2022! 

10. Gossip Girl (Available on HBO Max) 

Gossip Girl is another seminal teen drama series that initially premiered over a decade ago. Like The O.C. and Dawson’s Creek, fans of Outer Banks can get a lot out of checking out an earlier teen drama that helped popularize the trend for the modern generation. In addition to the show’s original six seasons, the show has also recently been rebooted for a new run that premiered on HBO Max. The show’s original six seasons are also available on the streaming platform, meaning there is plenty of Gossip Girl to go around! The show was based upon the novel series of the same name and centers on a group of privileged girls living in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The show is narrated by an omniscient blogger keeping track of the various pieces of gossip surrounding these girls, serving as the titular “Gossip Girl”. Kristen Bell, of Veronica Mars and Frozen fame, voices this character. In addition to Kristen Bell’s narration, the show also features performances from such stars as Blake Lively. Although Kristen Bell has returned to voice the role of the show’s omniscient narrator for the recent reboot, the new series focuses on a new cast of characters besides her. Gossip Girl was one of the biggest hits of its time, and those who haven’t seen the show’s original six seasons would be remiss not to fix that now! Binging all six seasons of this seminal teen drama could be the perfect antidote to the depression you feel after finishing off Outer Banks’ second season for a third or fourth time. As well, you can hope for many more episodes of the recent Gossip Girl reboot in the future if you find that you’re becoming a fan of the franchise!
