Especially after Brit Marling’s Instagram post where she confirmed that they will not be continuing with the OA. The part where she said” The first time i heard the news I had a good cry”. A lot of viewers could feel it.
The OA also known as the Original Angel is an American mystery drama series with science fiction, supernatural and fantasy elements. This show was published on Netflix on December 16,2016. It is executively produced by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij.
Though the creators had planned it to be a five part stories in five seasons of the show but after Netflix asked them to shut down the show the story was left with a cloak and dagger ending.
This series is revolves around a girl named Prairie Johnson, an adopted young woman who resurfaces after having been missing for seven years. When she returns she is no longer blind and calls herself as the Original Angle and also shows the scars and marks she has on her back. The FBI and her family ask her about what had she gone through or what had happened but upon that she remains muted.
After the official statement given by the creators people still have a hope that Zal and Brit might come up with something more interesting and there are various reasons to it.
- It has been proven that a The OA series or a show can have a lot of impact on the human brain and such a show which has a gigantic fan following being ended with a hand cliffing end can result in people feeling lonely and in severe cases depression.
- Mystery drama fiction is not a common genre for a series and under circumstances where they are talks about taking the show off air can he equal to closing doors for people to witness new expanses.
- There are some people who believe that the news of cancelling the show is just a meta stunt and they hope that the creators will be back with a superior quality content for the show.
- Shows are created for the viewers to watch and enjoy and stopping such a shows production can cause huge loss to Netflix and also result in losing a lot of viewers all over the world. Since the show is admired worldwide it could also result in agitation from the viewer’s side. Similar could be seen outside Netflix’s Los Angeles Headquarters where a person went on hunger strike after he got to know that Netflix stopped the shows production.
- Moreover, both the seasons have received a positive feedback from the critics so there are no reasons to take the show of air, instead the show got good reviews from the critics for the kind of supernatural and fantasy elements .
