Science Fiction has been a favorite among producers at Netflix. Dark, Altered Carbon, Black Mirror, all of these shows have dealt with different concepts in science fiction. In February 2017, Netflix released The OA. Its main point of focus was alternate reality and dimensions, among other supernatural and fantasy elements. Although it took nearly 2 years, season 2 of the show satisfied the fans. But for one reason or another, Netflix has been canceling shows for the past three years. The OA is the latest casualty. After two amazing seasons, it looks like the curtain has been dropped around The OA season 3.
Will There Be An OA Season 3?
Series creators Brit Marling( also plays the titular character) and Zal Batmanglij had planned a five-season show. Before they could develop OA season 3, Netflix announced its cancellation. The reason behind the decision remains unclear. The show was well-received by the critics. And fans have been dying hard supporters of the show. One fan went on a hunger strike to protest its cancellation.
The audience reaction on social media can change the current direction. Moreover, Netflix recently renewed Lucifer for another season after canceling it. The recent developments at the office, along with the fan support, can bring back the show for another season.
When Will The Season Release?
If the show gets renewed, fans would have to wait for a long time. The OA came out in 2017, but it took two and a half years for the next season to arrive. The time and money involved in making the show could have been a major reason for its cancellation. If Netflix changes its mind and decides to spend more time and money, The OA season 3 may arrive by 2022.
What do The Fans need To Know?
If we ever get a season 3, it will be way less chaotic than the previous two. Jason Isaacs, who played Dr. Percy, claimed in an interview that the Marling and Batmanglij had planned everything. The direction of the series is determined. The only thing stopping them from writing the script is Netflix.
Fans love this show. And if there is an OA Season 3, it could very well become the most anticipated upcoming tv series.
