The OA Season 2 News & Updates: Will Prairie Finally See Homer?
The last episode of the show’s first season showed Prairie take a bullet and then waking up in a white room, saying Homer’s name as if he was right in front of her — seconds before the screen went black.
Now that The OA Season 2 has been officially confirmed, many wonder whether or not Prairie indeed saw Homer during that last scene in Season 1.
While there are speculations that Prairie may have just made up all the stories she’s told, fans couldn’t help but wonder whether or not what she was seeing in that last scene was real.
Even though that still remains to be seen, what is obvious, however, is that Homer will be something fans will either be seeing or hearing more about in The OA Season 2.
It’s Official: The OA Season 2 is Happening
The relatively long (though significantly short) wait is over for fans of the peculiar sci-fi thriller-drama and unexpected Netflix hit The OA.
Netflix has just announced Tuesday that it is officially renewing Brit Marling’s co-creation for a second season — leading fans to wonder even more about what the puzzling events of the show’s first season meant as its next season prepares to begin.
The OA Season 2 is expected to kick off where the first season left off, and many wonder whether or not every single story that Prairie ever told were lies.
It is expected, however, that the many questions left hanging during the first season will finally be put to rest in The OA Season 2, where Prairie and the rest of her crew are expected to return in full force.
Netflix, however, has not yet announced who among the cast will be and won’t be in The OA Season 2.
The OA Season 2 to Kick Off with Scenes from Prairie’s Death?
The OA Season 2 will be kicking off where the show’s past season left off, according to the latest The OA news and updates.
While official confirmation of the show’s second season is yet to be made by Netflix, rumor has it that The OA Season 2 team is already well prepared for the show’s upcoming season, and that everyone is just on standby for Netflix’s go signal.
Rumor has it that The OA Season 2 will be starting off with scenes from Prairie’s death from the past season, and will be continuing the storyline from there.
Despite the show’s unprecedented success, however, fans are advised not to expect the show’s return to the screens anytime this year.
Plans for Season 2 Already Laid Out?
Despite the fact that there are no formal announcements of any sort as of yet that lead to the official confirmation of The OA Season 2, fans can rest assured that the show’s creators, Brit Marling and Zal Batmangli, have already laid out plans for The OA’s highly anticipated second season — long before its first season even started to air.
During an interview with Variety, Marling revealed that they “spent a good three years just cobbling the mathematics of the labyrinth of a mind-bender that could go for many, many hours.”
If and when The OA Season 2 does happen, fans can expect an output coming from those three years of sheer hard work by both Marling and Batmanglij.
The OA Spoilers: Is The OA Season 2 Happening?
While The OA has initially taken the world by storm merely because of its complexity and utter eccentricity, some critics believe the show will not live to see a second season.
The creators of The OA went into great lengths to set it apart from all the other shows in its genre; but the same things that are meant to make it stand out also seem to be the same things that are pulling it down.
The strangeness and complexity of the movie unintentionally drove many viewers away, and the series finale didn’t seem to have helped, either.
The weird dance that supposedly solves a multitude of problems (including curing ALS and fending off a killer), as well as the school shooting — which some critics say was an insensitive move done in bad taste — left many viewers unhappy.
Nevertheless, the makers of the show are hopeful that The OA will get renewed for a second season — but series co-creator Zal Batmanglij says that possibility depends entirely on how the viewers would receive the show.
Netflix has so far not announced any plans to renew the show for a second season.
