The eight-part drama explores what happens during the years when a young woman goes missing. Marling, Emory Cohen, Scott Wilson, Phyllis Smith, Jason Isaacs, and Alice Krige star.
In the interview, Batmanglij said the two have created a whole world for the series that could be explored in more seasons:
I think this is a story that’s carefully planned. I don’t think any of us have thought about a second season right now because we’re exhausted, but yeah, when we started, Brit and I spent two or three years conceiving of a whole world before we brought it to anybody, before it ever left our bedrooms. Things are going on there.”
Marling later added that she hopes there will be a second season:
I think from the very beginning when we were on our own daydreaming a story, we definitely thought how can we construct something that, many seasons out, has a satisfying end? So there is an end and there is an answer to every riddle and nothing is done to just be sound and fury going nowhere. It all goes somewhere. And as to whether or not we get to tell that, I certainly hope that we do. There is a place that season two already begins in our minds and a place in which it ends.”
Netflix has not yet announced whether The OA will have a season two.
What do you think? Have you seen The OA? Do you want a second season?
