On April 15, 2020 Netflix released a brand new show named, Outer Banks, about teenagers living on an island and experiencing the amazing adventures.

The story is set on an island, where two social-economic people live, the impoverished are called the Pogues while the wealthy people are called Kooks, these two different groups do not particularly connect well. In this story four Pogue friends, find a boat sunken in the ocean after a hurricane, which leads them to an adventure of searching for an old shipwreck of more than 100 years called the Royal Merchant which holds 400 million dollars of gold. These four friends find an insane amount of obstacles, and find new friends along the way, the show casts many thrilling adventures to find the gold that has been buried all these years. Madison Swanson, an ERHS student gives her view on the show,” I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole show, very exciting.”
