Good news for fans of the Netflix series The OA -- it’s scheduled for another season( or rather a second part), as it’s officially being known as The OA: Part II.
Starring its creator Brit Marling and co-created by her long time collaborator director Zal Batmanglij, The OA is an eight episode series known for its strange themes and stranger plot line: Prarie -- a young blind woman -- has been missing for seven years and not only returns to her hometown under mysterious circumstances but with the ability to see and calling herself a new name: The OA. She then befriends a group of teenagers and their teacher and recounts her past and where she’d been for the past seven years. What unfolds is a tale of interpretive dance, prophetic dreams, and near death experiences. Simultaneously, The OA searches online of the mysterious Homer. Who he is and how it all ties together won’t be spoiled here ... go check out the series and experience the sheer weirdness of the series for yourself.
Compared to Netflix’s major hit Stranger Things, The OA was released with very little promotion or fanfare, dropping in December just days after its initial announcement. A date has not been set for the second season, nor has an episode count been released. Right now, all fans have to go on is the brief teaser, which you can watch below.
The braille inscription in the video translates to “survived,” and both water and fire play a large role in The OA. Beyond the symbolism, however, it doesn’t give away any information. The first season was packed full of mysteries and definitely had a very open ending, which means there are still plenty of questions left unanswered, and more aspects of The OA’s story to be brought to light.
