Netlifx has announced today that it has greenlit a second season of the original series The OA.
The series stars Brit Marling as a woman previously thought dead turning up in her hometown years later. Formerly blind, she can now see, but has scars on her back and refers to herself only as The OA and confides in the town’s locals of her life story. You can watch a short teaser for the upcoming season below.
The series hails from Zal Batmanglij, who directed all eight episodes of the first season. The OA also stars Jason Issacs, Emory Cohen, Scott Wilson, Alice Krige, Patrick Gibson, Brandon Meyer, Ian Alexander and Phyllis Smith.
From Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the visionary filmmakers behind Sound of My Voice and The East, comes a powerful, mind-bending tale about identity, human connection and the borders between life and death. The Netflix original series The OA is an odyssey in eight chapters produced in partnership with Plan B Entertainment, Netflix and Anonymous Content. The groundbreaking series offers audiences a singular experience that upends notions about what long-format stories can be.
