The OA is an English thriller based on science fiction, supernatural, and fantasy elements. Netflix dropped the first season of the series in 2016 and then after the gap of more than two years, it launched season 2. Already more than a year has passed since season 2 was released and now the fan’s patience is ending. They are tired of asking questions regarding The OA Season 3 release date.
If you are also a big fan of the series and the same is happening to you then I have something to tell you which can help to calm your frustration. But are you interested in listening to it? If yes then be ready to know the answers to some of your latest queries. I haven’t got exact details about them but I have nearby answers to them. So, let’s proceed further:
When Netflix Is Announcing The OA Season 3 Release Date?
Initially, there were hopes that drama would be renewed for the third season. But the latest statement of Jason Isaacs has put a full stop to all speculations. The series has suddenly received a red signal from Netflix. In an interview with This Morning, Isaacs’s facial expressions said everything when moderators Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby asked him about the future of The OA season 3.
Confronting a fan campaign to protect the show Issacs mentioned – “Outside Netflix headquarters, outsider Trump Tower, some unfortunate lady went on a hunger strike – there was a huge fan movement for it. But it won’t be coming back.”
He further said, “It won’t be coming back, but you know, we made two seasons of maybe the most brilliant and original and imaginative show that I’ve been involved in within 32 years.”
Issacs mainly reached into that show to tell people about his new movie Scoop. There he told everything about the fate of season 3 and confessed he was “crushed” after hearing the call off of the third season.
“Most people I know have got a bit of time on their hands right now, so if you’ve got Netflix I suggest you watch it because it just reinvents narrative, it doesn’t do the things you expect it to do.
“Brit Marling, who was lead actress and the co-writer… she’s just an original voice and I was thrilled to be anywhere near it.”
Thereafter he included, “I was crushed when it was cancelled. But now I look back and I think, ‘At least there’s that’. At least there’s two seasons of something unlike anything you’ll ever see.”
Issacs also said that the previous year, drama creators had planned future seasons of the series. But unfortunately, right now it is seeming that those plans have gone far away from their hands.
How Will The OA Season 3 Plot Be?
As we all know that the series tells us a tale of a young blind lady. Suddenly, she disappears and after the interval of seven long years, she comes back surprisingly. Now, she is no longer blind and her eyes can see the objects clearly but with the restoration of his vision, he has also got a big mark on her back.
Now, she refers to herself as “OA” and she is not ready to reveal the name of that place where she spent such a long time. She discloses the details of that period to some regional high school fellows and a tutor. Thereafter she creates a plan to save her colleagues with whom she was there for seven years.
We have already discussed earlier that Netflix has no intent to renew the drama for more seasons. So, nothing can be anticipated regarding the story of the forthcoming season. If Netflix renews it in near future then only we can get some information about its plot.
Who Will Be Part Of The OA Season 3 Cast?
Right now, the drama hasn’t got a chance to go ahead. But maybe it gets renewed in the future. If it happens then the question is who will become its part? Well, as per the rumors creators won’t make any drastic variation in the cast of season 3 which means that stars of the previous season will be again seen in season 3.
But there is also a possibility of the addition of new faces in drama. Showrunners can add new stars to the series to make the story more spinning and twisting. However, the central characters of the drama will remain the same. So, according to that the names that are going to be seen in season 3 are –
- Brit Marling will be seen as Prairie Johnson(the OA).
