We’re almost two years removed from when the first season of “The OA” premiered on Netflix, and there’s still been no sign of a follow-up.
Britt Marling starred in the first season as a young woman named Prairie Johnson who resurfaces after having been missing for seven years. She now calls herself ‘The OA’ and can see, despite having been blind before her disappearance. Things get more sci-fi from there with the surprise crucial to its enjoyment.
Now, to help assuage fans, Marling took to Instagram to offer a quick update saying she and co-creator Zal Batmanglij have just finished the sound mix on the second season which suggests it’s nearly complete.
Marling explains that because of the storyline and that Marling not only stars but writes the show, they had to write and pre-produce the entire season before filming – not unlike a film, albeit an eight hour film. You can see her long but interesting explanation in the Instagram post below.
Netflix has not yet set an air date for the new episodes.
