Fans Are Rallying to Save 'The OA' After Its Netflix Cancellation

The trans-inclusive sci-fi series won't be returning for a third season—and fans are rightfully upset.

Fans waited nearly three years to get a second season of Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's The OA after it first premiered in 2016, but it looks like the wait for a third season will now be indefinite. 

According to a report from Variety, Netflix has officially cancelled the critically-acclaimed sci-fi thriller. 

"We are incredibly proud of the 16 mesmerizing chapters of The OA and are grateful to Brit and Zal for sharing their audacious vision and for realizing it through their incredible artistry," Netflix's vice president of original content Cindy Holland said in a statement. "We look forward to working with them again in the future, in this and perhaps many other dimensions."

The OA was a favorite amongst critics and fans and was also LGBTQ-inclusive, introducing the world to up-and-coming trans actor (and 2019 #PRIDE25 honoree) Ian Alexander. 

Following the news of the show's cancellation, viewers took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, with #SaveTheOA quickly becoming a top trend.

Considering all of the outcry from fans, hopefully this isn't the last we'll be seeing of The OA...
