Netflix’s The OA, a new freaky supernatural mini-series with an 8-episode season, looks like the streaming service’s next binge-worthy series.
Trust the unknown. Netflix Original Series ‘The OA’ launches globally Friday, December 16.
The OA follows the story of a girl who disappeared when she was a child, only to return seven years later (with the bonus of having regained her sight). She’s been busy, however, as some kind of weird memory retrieval therapy involving a fish tank for the brain and experiential recall shows. “Have you seen death?” “Have you seen darkness?”
Some of the bizarre trailer may be dream sequences, as implied by a post on The OA’s newly launched Instagram. Netflix’s new series, The OA, is shrouded in mystery, but the key to figuring out what it means may lie in its Instagram layout.
From Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the visionary filmmakers behind Sound of My Voice and The East, comes a powerful, mind-bending tale about identity, human connection and the borders between life and death. The Netflix original series The OA is an odyssey in eight chapters produced in partnership with Plan B Entertainment, Netflix and Anonymous Content. The groundbreaking series offers audiences a singular experience that upends notions about what long-format stories can be.
