The OA Cancelled After Two Seasons at Netflix
Netflix has announced that the fan-favorite trippy series The OA has been cancelled after two seasons. Created by Sound of My Voice and The East duo Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the series premiered in 2016 and debuted its highly anticipated second season earlier this year.
“We are incredibly proud of the 16 mesmerizing chapters of The OA, and are grateful to Brit and Zal for sharing their audacious vision and for realizing it through their incredible artistry,” said Netflix head of originals Cindy Holland. “We look forward to working with them again in the future, in this and perhaps many other dimensions.”
The series was a mind-bending tale about identity, human connection and the borders between life and death. It was produced in partnership with Plan B Entertainment, Netflix and Anonymous Content. The groundbreaking series offered audiences a singular experience that upends notions about what long-format stories can be.
Marling co-created and starred in the series, leading a cast that included Phyllis Smith, Alice Krige, Jason Isaacs, Ian Alexander, Paz Vega, Chloe Levine, Riz Ahmed, Robert Morgan, Zoë Chao, Irène Jacob, with Zendaya, and the late Scott Wilson.
