Netflix has given the pink slip to The OA after two seasons. The cancellation comes over four months after the eight-episode second season launched on the streaming service on March 22nd.
“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,” said Netflix head of originals Cindy Holland. “We look forward to working with them again in the future, in this and perhaps many other dimensions.”
