Deadline confirmed on Monday (05) that The OA has been canceled and will not return for the third season. The news comes exactly four and a half months after the platform launched the second season, on March 22. The series brought together Sundance veterans Brit Marling and director Zal Batmanglij.
“We are incredibly proud of The OA’s 16 mesmerizing chapters. In addition, we are grateful to Brit and Zal for sharing their audacious vision and for realizing it through their incredible art, ”said Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content at Netflix. “ We are looking forward to working with them again in the future, in this and perhaps many other dimensions. “.
Netflix usually has a positive rate in relation to renewing a series from the first to the second season. However, from the third, the costs can get higher.
Thus, the platform tends to carefully examine the public of its attractions and, if not well visualized, it ends up being canceled. Generally, Netflix’s attractions have not passed the third season.
In OA, Marling starred as an adopted blind woman who disappeared for seven years. When she suddenly appears alive, she can see. As well as she has unexplained scarring on her back and refers to herself as OA. Instead of explaining things to parents or authorities, she reveals her secrets to some local residents. Thus, she begins to tell them her life story. Ultimately, she seeks their help in finding other missing persons.
The cast featured Jason Isaacs, Emory Cohen, Wilson Scott, Alice Krige, Patrick Gibson, Brandon Meyer, Brandon Perea, Alexander Ian, and Phyllis Smith.
