Friday, July 30


Teen dramas tinged with an element of intrigue have been a highly successful concoction for Netflix over the years, no more so than with coming-of-age drama Outer Banks. Season one was a smash hit, with many of the cast members experiencing a meteoric rise in popularity across their social platforms.
