The OA (2016-2019)
Another two-season show – I’m starting to see a bit of a pattern here. The OA tells the story of Prairie Johnson, a young woman who had been missing for seven years and suddenly resurfaces, calling herself the OA, standing for “Original Angel,” has scars on her back and can now see, despite being blind when she went missing.
The premise itself is super interesting and honestly, it draws you in quickly. It sounds like an excellent mystery and would have continued to be so if it had gone into a third season, however they were never able to finish the story. According to what Jason Isaacs told Collider, the show was meant to be a five-season arc. Unfortunately, the series was cancelled only after two. Cost of production may have been a factor, or perhaps viewership just wasn’t up to Netflix’s hopes for the original series. Even so, there won’t be a continuation of the show, despite being well-received.
