Netflix’s ‘The OA’ Officially Renewed for a Second Movement
The vast majority of The OA viewers are still scratching their heads over that first season ending, but star-creator Brit Marling and director Zal Batmanglij aren’t going to leave us hanging forever. Practice your movements – The OA Season 2 is a go.
Netflix confirmed the news with a brief announcement teaser, dubbing the next chapter “Part II” and promising in a tagline that “something always survives.” The first season premiered rather unexpectedly within a week of its first trailer, though Netflix made no promises on when to expect a second season.
So reads the original synopsis
The Netflix original series The OA, which launches this Friday, is from visionaries Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij (Sound of My Voice, The East), who created and wrote the eight chapter, mind-bending odyssey together. The show begins with a missing blind girl in her twenties, Prairie Johnson (Brit Marling), who comes home to the community she grew up in with her sight restored. Some hail her a miracle, others a dangerous mystery, but Prairie won’t talk about her seven years missing with the FBI or her parents.
Other cast members include Emory Cohen (Brooklyn, The Place Beyond the Pines), Scott Wilson (The Walking Dead, Junebug), Phyllis Smith (The Office), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter, Fury, Dig), Alice Krige (Star Trek: First Contact, Silent Hill), Patrick Gibson (The Tudors), Brendan Meyer (Mr. Young, The Guest) and newcomers Ian Alexander and Brandon Perea.
Suffice to say, Season 1 of The OA left us with more questions than answers, but will “Part II” finally explain those mysterious dance moves? Has it all been in Prairie’s head? Watch the first trailer below.
