On Friday, July 30, Netflix released Outer Banks season 2. The second instalment made many fans wonder if Sarah Cameron and John B from the show were dating in real life.

The much-awaited season of Outer Banks is here and fans finally got to watch one of their favourite on-screen couples Sarah and John again. The duo and their friend’s group embarks on new adventures this season.

Actors Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline, who play John and Sarah on the show respectively sparked dating rumours after the show’s season 1 was released last year.

Are the Netflix stars dating in real life?

Yes, the on-screen couple is dating off-screen too.

While this might be news to some fans, many Outer Banks stans already know that Sarah and John have been together in real life since 2020. The couple even quarantined together with co-stars Drew Starkey and Rudy Pankow.

Now, one year later, the pair is still going strong and often post about each other on Instagram.

In April of this year, Madelyn (Sarah) 23, posted a series of photos on her Instagram to celebrate her one-year anniversary with co-star Chase (John B). She tagged him in the pictures and the caption read, “Thanks for helping me keep track of my belongings for a whole year (: adore u.”

More recently, on June 7, Chase posted a series of pictures featuring Madelyn ahead of their New York City outing.

In May this year, the Outer Banks couple appeared on the  MTV Movie & TV Awards. While accepting the award for Best Kiss, the duo recreated their passionate kiss from the show, on stage. The pair doesn’t shy away from PDA as they locked lips on the red carpet too.

John B and Sarah Cameron’s role in Season 2 explored


For most of Outer Banks season 2, we see that John B and Sarah are going strong. The couple has to endure a lot as they face everything from minor disagreements and life-or-death situations while on the run. We see their love for each other but it goes only so far.

Despite their best efforts to stay under the radar, John ends up getting arrested for killing Sheriff Peterkin, a crime he did not commit. Meanwhile, Sarah’s father Ward runs out of luck this season and fakes his death to evade arrest for the crime he committed.

In the thick of the drama, John and Sarah break up and explore dating other people, but that doesn’t seem to be going too well.

We also see Sarah technically dying in Episode 3 whilst being operated on. But, thank god, for John who successfully resuscitates her and she springs back to life.


Everything we know about Outer Banks season 3

The renewal of Outer Banks Season 3 will heavily depend on season 2’s success. However, given that the second season ends on a cliff-hanger, we can guess that a third season is most likely on the cards.

Even though season 2 was renewed in July 2020, it premiered a year later due to the COVID-related delays. Hence, if we guess as per season 2’s timeline, Outer Banks season 3 will most likely arrive in the summer of 2022. However, this is all assuming that Netflix renews the show.

At the same time, if season 3 does get a green light, viewers will most likely see Ward return.
