The OA Season 3: Is It Renewed For Another Season?


The OA is a sci-fi mystery drama with only a few supernatural or fantasy elements. Brit Marling and Batmanglij made the show and are in charge of it. This is their third time working together on a project. The show has two seasons, and each season has eight episodes. Both critics and viewers liked the show. On Rotten Tomatoes, season 1 got 77% and season 2 got 92%. The theme and setting of the show are also similar to the original Stranger Things on Netflix.

There was a big difference between the first and 2nd seasons of the show. The first season got mixed reviews and people didn’t connect with the story as much, but season 2 made its mark and went on to get high ratings, which led many editorials to call it one of the best shows of 2019.

The OA Season 3 Renewal Status

If you’ve been waiting for years for a third season, we’re sorry to let you down. The OA will not be back for a third season. After the second season, Netflix stopped making the show available to watch.

The worst thing about the end of the show is that it ends in suspense. We wanted an answer, but we won’t receive them anytime soon. Marling conveyed her and Batmanglij’s deep sorrow for not being capable of finishing the show. Many viewers spoke up and started petitions and hashtags to get the show renewed for a second season. Some fans have said online that they think the cancellation news was just a publicity stunt.

The OA Recap 

We see Prairie Johnson, who was adopted, go missing for seven years and then return to her parents, Nancy and Abel. When she comes back, she can see everything clearly, even though she used to be blind. She meets Steve, a neighborhood bully, and tells him she will save him in the future, but only if he helps her set up a team. Then, she and Steve meet four teenagers and their teacher, and she informs them she was born in Russia to a powerful Oligarch but had to leave the country and settle in the United States, where she was adopted.

Now, she and her team have to go to another aspect to save other people who have gone missing. This isn’t easy, though, because alternate dimensions have their own timelines and events that haven’t happened in real life.

The OA Season 3 Plot

There are a lot of different events that might have occurred in possible future seasons of The OA. The showrunners were looking forward to making Season 3, so the fact that the series ended after only two chapters was a shock. However, there’s always a chance that they could bring it back someday, maybe even a long time from now, like Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life or Twin Peaks: The Return. Here are some ideas about where the Third season might go if it ever comes to pass:

Season 2 went into the multiverse, and boy, are we in it! As much as loyal fans tried to guess where the second season would go, few could have guessed precisely where it went. So, with that in mind, it’s difficult to predict where Season 3 would go. Since Prairie learned that Dr. Hap, Homer, and herself are a “cosmic family,” it’s likely that she will keep trying to stop the evil Dr. Hap while also traveling with them. So far, all 3 of the aspects we’ve visited, including the meta-Brit-Marling-the-actress dimension from the last chapter, have been connected or alluded to in some way, so it’s possible that these will be the important places they often return to.

Aside from that, we can probably assume that it will be even stranger than the previous parts. Ben-Adir told RadioTimes that, “I know where the next season is going, and it’s CRAZY! Like, unimaginable! Genuinely! I’m not even trying to sell it, it’s so crazy!… You believe it’s going there, but it actually goes [frantic pointing] there, there, and there!” We know how to do the moves, so let’s hope one day we’ll be able to go there in this world.

The OA Season 3 Cast

Along with the amazing way the OA series is made and the story it tells, the actors have done an amazing job in their roles. The cast of OA is exciting, and we can’t wait to see the actors, who we might see on screen again. We hope that some of the following characters will stay on the show:

  • Scott Wilson as Abel Johnson
  • Alice Krige as Nancy Johnson
  • Brit Marling as Prairie
  • Emory Cohen as Homer Roberts
  • Phyllis Smith as Betty “BBA” Broderick-Allen

The OA Season 3 Release Date

The series has been in the works since 2012 when the creators pitched the idea to different production companies. On March 5, 2015, Netflix ordered 8 episodes, each of which will be about 60 minutes long. The show finally came out on December 16, 2016, and it was brought back for a second season, which came out on March 22, 2019.

Netflix said on August 5, 2019, that the show is over after two seasons, which means that it ended with a cliffhanger. The show’s creators said they were “deeply sad” about the decision. Fans of the show started the hashtags #SavetheOA and #OAisreal on Twitter. There were even billboards in Times Square asking for the show to be saved, but the decision stood and the show was officially over.
