Deadline is reporting that Elizabeth Mitchell has signed up for a recurring role in the upcoming second season of Netflix drama series Outer Banks.
Outer Banks is set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina where we follow a group of blue-collared friends who live at The Cut and refer to themselves as Pogues, with the leader of them being John B., whose father is missing/presumed dead and was obsessed in locating the Royal Merchant, a vessel that sunk and vanished but is believed to have gone down with $400m worth of gold. As John B. and his friends find several clues to his father’s disappearance, which in turn might lead to them finding the Royal Merchant and its bounty, they must overcome being chased by the law, a wealthy, rival group from Figure Eight called the Kooks, as well as drugs, love, fighting and friendship.
Elizabeth Mitchell (whose credits include LOST and The Expanse) will be playing the role of Limbrey, a long-time Charleston native, a compelling woman with a level of toxicity and menace underneath her seemingly courteous ways. The report also states that production on the second season is currently underway in South Carolina.
Outer Banks stars Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow, Austin North, Drew Starkey, Deion Smith and Charles Esten.
