Fans are furious after Netflix cancels ‘The OA’ after only two seasons. They are now petitioning to save their favorite television show.
Netflix cancels ‘OA’
Netflix has canceled the sci-fi television show The OA and fans are truly shocked. The show has an 84% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is extremely popular.
The show ran for two seasons and has a total of 16 episodes. Season two ended on a massive cliffhanger. However, fans will not be getting any answers unless ‘The OA’ gets renewed. Hence, they have started a petition to save the show and get another season.
They have started a campaign on Change.Org called ‘Save The OA, Renew The OA for season 3’. The description states, “‘The OA’ has just been cancelled by Netflix on August 5th: the exact date for which its online fanbase had planned an online #RenewTheOA campaign, requesting for Netflix to renew it for at least a third season.”
It continues, “The series was initially planned for a five-season run with Netflix and for the reasons stated above we feel it needs to be given justice in the form of a renewal or a final conclusion.”
The sci-fi show revolves around the story of a woman who goes missing for 7 years and then returns completely cured of her blindness. The FBI and everyone else tries to learn the circumstances of her disappearance. However, the woman is not willing to discuss any details.
“Incredibly proud of the 16 mesmerizing chapters”
Netflix’s VP of Original Content, Cindy Holland released a statement regarding the news. “We are incredibly proud of the 16 mesmerizing chapters of The OA, and are grateful to Brit and Zal for sharing their audacious vision and for realizing it through their incredible artistry.”
“We look forward to working with them again in the future, in this and perhaps many other dimensions,” she concluded.
Brit Marling, the creator, and star of the show shard an emotional post on Instagram after the cancelation. She wrote, “Zal and I are deeply sad not to finish this story. The first time I heard the news I had a good cry. So did one of our executives at Netflix who has been with us since the early days when we were sketching out Hap’s basement on the floor of our production offices in Queens.”
She further said, “It’s been an intense journey for everyone who worked on and cared about this story.”
