The OA is a thrilling sci-fi show that follows the exploits of Prairie Johnson, a young woman who resurfaces after being missing for over 7 years. She refuses to co-operate with law enforcement which just adds to the intrigue surrounding her. Add to that, the fact that she’s blind but can see now. This show is an absolute blockbuster.
What’s The News?
Netflix cancelled the show after 2 seasons. The maddening lack of a conclusion is a characteristic of streaming services. Of course, fans were not too happy. Some went even as far as to call a hunger strike. While that may be a bit too extreme we still don’t understand why such a critically acclaimed series was cancelled.
This brings back memories of intriguing alien invasion thriller V. The show ended on a cliffhanger as well.
However, recent reports suggest that Netflix will resolve the issue with the makers of the show. We certainly hope for the show to make a return and resolve pending storylines.
We don’t know too much about the third season. While there have been multiple petitions on Change.org and Twitter to save the show, it simply isn’t worth Netflix’s time and money.
An interesting theory suggests that the show was cancelled as a publicity stunt. We doubt the authenticity of such rumours though as shows do get cancelled more often than not.
The show was received very positively but in a crowded space, did not gain too much traction. As returning viewers are the life and soul of online streaming, such shows are doomed to oblivion. In my opinion, it is better not to ever start watching such shows than to end up with an unresolved cliffhanger. However, if you prefer to manipulate the puppets of sci-fi to your own whims, this one may be for you. Stay connected for upcoming updates.
