When it comes to the team behind The OA, releasing new seasons after ages is not a surprise. There was a gap of two and a half years between the first season and the second season. The OA: Part II was finally released on Netflix in March of last year. Eight fresh and trippy episodes were released in season two.
It is only natural that all the fans are now eagerly waiting for the release of the third season. However, whether the third season will release or not is a big question in itself. So, here is everything we know so far about the fate of the third season!
The release date of The OA Season 3
We are extremely happy to inform the fans waiting for the third chapter that Netflix will be renewing The OA for a third season. Netflix has been taking off show recently, and The OA is its latest casualty.
What do The OA Season 3 creators have to say?
Here is a direct quote from Netflix’s Vice-president Cindy Holland, “We are incredibly proud of the 16 mesmerizing chapters of The OA, and are grateful to [co-creators Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij] 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.”
There is a piece of bad news as Jason Isaacs, who played Hap, had previously said that the creators had enough content for three more seasons. “And that’s one of the reasons, I think, why the show was originally picked up by Netflix. Because they arrived with this thing that was fully formed, it’s their singular voices. It doesn’t bear the stamp of any kind of executive development. I’m so invested in seeing it as a fan that I hope to God that people like the show as much as I do because we’d like to get a season three, four, and five.”
However, if rumors are to be believed, the fans’ prayers have been answered as shooting has apparently started from last December and will be out by the end of 2020. For now, we can only wait and see when the series is released.
