After the latest Madelyn Cline boyfriend news? The actress, 24, is set to return to hit series Outer Banks for its third season in 2023—and she’ll star alongside real-life ex-boyfriend Chase Stokes, who plays her character Sarah Cameron’s on-screen love interest John B.
Since the TV stars called it quits in 2021, there have been frequent rumors among the Netflix show’s fans of a romantic reconciliation—not least because the pair have been back on set filming new episodes together. However, Madelyn has shown signs of moving, having been linked to a series of other hunky suitors in recent months.
Here’s all we know about Madelyn Cline and Chase Stokes’ relationship timeline, and whether their on-off romance seems over for good—because just like Justin and Hailey Bieber, they were a fan-favorite showbiz couple. And we’ll also reveal who else might have caught her eye…
Madelyn Cline boyfriend—is she in a relationship?
Viewers of Outer Banks have long hoped that Madelyn and Chase would give their relationship a go once more after their break-up last year. This has seemed like a possibility for many months given that the former couple was back on set together and that they were both reportedly single.
However, it has been confirmed that Madelyn is off the market once more—and it’s very likely not with Chase. A December 2022 piece in The Cut (opens in new tab) describes the star being “at the Malibu home she shares with her boyfriend and dogs”. Things seem serious with her current beau—but she appears keen to keep his identity under wraps for now…
Madelyn Cline boyfriend history
1. Madelyn Cline and Jackson Guthy
There were first suggestions that Madelyn was dating Jackson Guthy back in May. She appeared to take the 26-year-old singer, who previously dated YouTube star Olivia Jade Giannulli until 2019, as her date to a wedding.
Then, in June, the pair were pictured having lunch in Malibu and going on grocery runs together. However, neither of them has confirmed that a romance is brewing, with them each absent from the other’s social media too.
2. Madelyn Cline and Zach Bia
Back in December 2021, shortly after Madelyn and Chase were reunited at the People’s Choice Awards, she was linked to Zach Bia. The pair were pictured leaving an LA restaurant together just before her 24th birthday.
However, the DJ, 26, has insisted they are just friends. Speaking in January on the BFFs with Dave Portnoy and Josh Richards (opens in new tab) podcast, he said: “We are not dating. We hang out all the time.”
3. Madelyn Cline and Ross Butler
Shortly before that, in November 2021, Madelyn was linked to Ross Butler. The 32-year-old starred in another Netflix show 13 Reasons Why.
Ross confirmed to TMZ (opens in new tab) that they were “just friends”. However, he then proceeded to confuse things by leaving a flirty comment on one of Madelyn’s Instagram posts—sparking rumors once more.
4. Madelyn Cline and Chase Stokes
Madelyn’s last confirmed relationship was with Chase. She met the 30-year-old actor on the set of Outer Banks after the pair played love interests. They started to fall for one another in real life in April 2020 when they were forced to quarantine together amid the first pandemic lockdown—and they went public with their romance that June.
However, after frequently appearing in public together and sharing loved-up social media posts, the couple went quiet in 2021. In October of that year, a source confirmed to E! News that they had split. Meanwhile, an insider told People (opens in new tab) that “they were trying to work things out privately but broke up a couple of months ago”.
Fans were confused in February when new promotional material for their Netflix series showed them holding hands. However, Madelyn insisted to Us Weekly at a Hollywood event in March that they were simply in character filming new scenes.
