Netflix cancels 'The OA'
MANILA, Philippines – Sci-fi mystery series The OA has been canceled by Netflix after two seasons.
"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 Cindy Holland, vice president of original content of Netflix, according to a CNN report.
"We look forward to working with them again in the future, in this and perhaps many other dimensions."
The OA revolved around a blind woman who disappeared, only to return 7 years later with her sight restored. Afterwards, she called herself "The OA" (Original Angel) and made it her mission to rescue others who have also disappeared, forming a team to venture into another dimension.
The sci-fi thriller premiered in December 2016 with the second hitting the streaming giant in March 2019. It was co-created by lead star Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, alongside executive producers Brad Pitt, Jeremy Kleiner, and Sarah Esberg.
Aside from Marling, it also stars Emory Cohen, Patrick Gibson, Jason Isaacs, Ian Alexander, Phyllis Smith, Brendan Meyer, Brandon Perea, Will Brill, Sharon Van Etten, Scott Wilson, Alice Krieg, and Paz Vega. – Rappler.com
