Ever since the release, all fans have been asking for more. Would we get The OA Season 3? The second season has bagged great reviews from critics with 92% rating on rotten tomatoes. The second season left all the viewers with a number of questions. Will we get the answers? What is coming up? When will the show release? Here are all the details-
What’s The Renewal Status?
This is indeed a sad news for all The OA fans. Netflix has decided not to renew The OA Season 3. The platform has dropped it after two chapters. In a statement, Cindy Holland- The Vice President at Netflix said that they are very proud of the sixteen episodes they have made. With that, they are also very grateful to the co-creators Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling for sharing their vision and making it possible to use their incredible artistic sense. Holland continued to say that they are looking forward to working with the duo in the future.
Marling also took on to social media to share her reaction on the cancellation news. She wrote that she and Zal are both very sad that they did not get to finish their story. The first time she came to know about this, she cried. Not just her, but also one of the executives at Netflix who had been with them all through since their early days.
However, not all hopes are lost. Like many other shows, it is possible that some other streaming service might pick up the show and bring more episodes. For what we know, the story isn’t over yet. Before the second season of the mystery drama released, actor Jason Isaacs, who plays the character Hunter Aloysius “Hap” Percy revealed that the creators had five seasons panned out of The OA.
What Could Happen In OA Season 3?
If any platform picks the show for a third season, what would it bring to the table? Actor Kingsley Ben-Adir, who played Karim Washington, the private detective in the second season, says that The OA season 3 would indeed be wild. He continued to say that he knows where the third season will go, and that is the nut. Nobody can imagine it. It is crazy. You think it is going in one direction, but then it goes in all other directions. He revealed that everybody would get what they deserve by the end of it all.
Isaac added that the first two seasons are very different from each other in more than one way. He says that he has no doubts that the third season would be different too. The creators don’t like getting bored, and hence they wouldn’t want the audience to get bored either.
With that said, it does look very interesting to see what’s coming up next. However, the creators have revealed that it takes a long time to make one season. So, when and if the show is picked up, it will be a while before we get to see The OA season 3. We will keep updating this space with all the new information about the show as we get it. So, you stay tuned.
