Netflix has renewed its polarising supernatural series The OA for “Part II”.
The series launched to considerable buzz in December despite little pre-publicity.
But its slow-burn and hypnotic storytelling divided audiences.
“We always thought of it almost like books, and there could be many different volumes,” star and co-creator Britt Marling said, of why they’re calling the second season “part two.” “In some ways, [part one] is a self-contained story,” in terms of the OA’s relationship with a teacher and a group of kids, and how her own story “allows them to face their own moment of crisis at the end,” she continued. “The science-fiction, metafictional elements are open-ended so there can be a part two in which we can delve into those spaces.”
An episode count or return date has not been revealed.
