In a break from their traditional marketing of original content, Netflix announced yesterday the entire first season of a new original show would debut this weekend called The OA.
The plot is still unknown, but we have this trailer below for hints.
That trailer, and a few enigmatic tweets are about all the info we have on the show. Does anyone else get serious Stranger Things vibes? But like, the adult version? Brit Marling is the lead character, Prairie Johnson, and I have not seen her since Another Earth, which I would highly recommend you check out. Marling teams with her fellow writing/director, Zal Batmanglij from Sound of My Voice as the show creators. She co-wrote the series with Batmanglij, who directed all eight episodes as well.
The OA’s entire first season will be released to Netflix on this Friday.
