The OA cancelled? Creator/star Brit Marling admits that while the mystery thriller is ‘up in the air’ at Netflix, she and co-creator Zal Batmanglij know where the coveted second season begins and ends up for a potential third season, speaking on EW’s What to Watch podcast:
“The truth is, before Zal and I started doing this, we thought you could potentially get caught up in doing something like this for many years. So you better be sure all those years of your life are going to be interesting, so that’s why we spent a good year and a half upfront before we even wrote the first chapter, designing the labyrinth and making sure there was something at its center that would feel worthwhile to arrive at,” Marling said. “So there is a there there, but whether or not we’ll be able to get there is another question. But we always had an intention for where a second season would start and where it would end. it was important to know all those things upfront. So I guess we’ll just have to see if we get to tell it.”
With the first season of The OA ending on a huge cliffhanger, the twisted cancellation reaper would get an extra kick out of thwarting a second season. Will the renewal gods save it?
