At the risk that thousands of people decide to post Internet videos of themselves the Dancing with Enthusiasm We Will Call Here, People: The OA is dead. The sci-fi mystical Netflix series – about an ethereal, dimensional "original angel" (hence the name) – has been introduced canceled a few weeks . Or was that it ?! ) ( Yes, yes, it was .) But there was always the hope that the series might get this standard setting for the final series of redemption , a chance to pack entire seasons of shortened actions into a neat little package: The Big Finale movie.
But unfortunately, it should not be since Variety tonight reported that there was simply too much OA in the tank to fit in a two-hour movie. The series, which ended with a really crazy second-season cliffhanger was originally scheduled for five seasons, after all, as "trying to make a five-season series at Netflix," this obviously did not seem like tempting fate. Plus: The OA was produced by the streamer in-house, which means that the probability of resurrection from another network is basically zero.
Series star Brit Marling – who also created the show with Zal Batmanglij – posted a very long Instagram post earlier this week thanking the fans for their love and support. Given that the show was very meta-fictitious, this was undeniably the end – as captured in the "assumption that Brit Marling could actually be a amnesian version of The OA Earth "meta – it's probably as much as a complete farewell to the character and the series as fans will probably get it now.
