Netflix Dropped The Series OA After Only Two Seasons; Fans Trying For A Renewal
The mystery sci-fi television series The OA had a great start with its first season being widely appreciated by viewers around the globe. The series premiered on Netflix in 2016 with its first season and released its second season in March 2019. However, Netflix decided to stop streaming the series right after season 2 for reasons unknown.
The show received a lot of positive feedback from viewers as well as critics. Directed by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the show despite its initial popularity couldn’t renew for season 3 due to Netflix’s decision. Fans have been beyond frustrated with Netflix’s decision and had previously begun a social media rally with the hashtag #SaveTheOA hoping that some other streamers will pick up and continue the show. However, that hasn’t panned out quite conveniently for the fans.
The fans of OA believed that Netflix decided to drop the series due to its huge fanbase and the reality-altering nature of the show. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Netflix seems to have dropped the show to save their market. A popular show, according to Netflix, is unlikely to attract more subscribers after one or two seasons. Hence, their preliminary decision.
Have Fans Begun The Rally Once More: Here’s What We Know
The scifi show features an adopted and previously blind girl Prairie Jhonson(Brit Marling), who mysteriously disappears. After seven long years, Prairie makes a return and claims to be an OA, i.e., an Original Angel. Prairie decides to help other people in dire need who, like her, have travelled to another dimension and cannot make it back home.
Fans had again begun another rally using the hashtag #TheOAisReal in yet another attempt to renew the series for a third season and have a streaming site pick it up. However, what will be the final fate of the series is yet to be seen.
