The OA fans beg Netflix to bring it back for season 3 with #SaveTheOA
The mystery drama starred Brit Marling (who also co-produced the series) as Prairie Johnson, a young woman who resurfaces after having gone missing for seven years.
She since referred to herself as The OA, and can now see, despite being blind prior to her disappearance.
In the wake of the cancellation news, fans have since begun to start a campaign to bring the show back for a third season.
The hashtags #SaveTheOA, #TheOAIsReal and #WatchTheOA have become popular trending topics on social media site Twitter, with viewers sharing their own fan art, and encouraging others to watch the show.
A fan petition has also been circulating on Change.org, stating that the series ‘is such an important show to so many people.’
‘Brit and Zal spent so many countless hours creating this world and bringing it to life, hoping for five seasons. This world is full of love, acceptance, and bravery,’ the petition read.
‘Something we need to see more of on our screens. Science fiction brings their imagination to life, we have to continue this. To have it cancelled after two is such a shame.
‘The creators and fans of this show deserve to have the story finished.’
Although the show’s producers, Brit and Zal Batmanglij, intended for the series to consist of five seasons, Netflix announced the show’s cancellation on 9 August after just two seasons.
This has angered fans as they believed that due to the cliffhanger ending of the second season, the show could always come back for a third season via a parallel universe through the use of real world fan interaction.
However, with no word coming from Netflix since the cancellation announcement, the show is possibly gone for good.
