Netflix's 'The OA' Officially Renewed for a Second Movement

09 February 2017

The eight-episode first season premiered with little fanfare and just one trailer released a few days in advance. And yet Marling and Batmanglij also indicated, before the show was officially renewed, that they did intend to present more concrete conclusions in subsequent seasons.

The OA was a unusual, eight-episode sci-fi mini-series created by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, starring Marling as the titular "OA", which will make sense if you go watch the show (it's well worth it). "It's an intense experience but I think also it ended up creating something that's very cohesive narratively, rather than episodic... so we wanna do that again. You release it, a small group of people see it", he said. (We hope so!) This form of long form, non-stop storytelling is exactly where Netflix originals excel.

Then, at 4.10pm on ITV, it's off to Twickenham for the 4.50pm kick-off , where a severely depleted England team take on France. The patriotic colours covering any of the original five and now cities have always loomed large as you approach the stadium.

In January, co-creator/star Brit Marling talked to Entertainment Weekly about Season 1's cliffhanger finale: "It feels to me like most of the provocative questions that are raised are eventually answered". She comes back changed: she had been blind, but her sight has been restored, and she now calls herself The OA. Some hailed her a miracle, others a unsafe mystery.

Co-stars include Jason Isaacs, Emory Cohen, Scott Wilson, Alice Krige, Patrick Gibson, Brandon MEyer, Ian Alexander and Phyllis Smith.
