Jump into a new dimension. The long awaited trailer for The OA Part II has finally arrived after waiting three long years. Netflix has announced that all-new episodes are being streamed globally starting Friday, March 22.
The "mind-bending" story returns with The OA Part II, which follows OA as she navigates a new dimension, one in which she had a completely different life as a Russian heiress, and one in which she once again finds herself as Hap's captive. Part II introduces Karim Washington, a private detective tasked with finding a missing teen, Michelle Vu.
His path crosses with OA, as they try to solve the mystery of Michelle's whereabouts and a house on Nob Hill connected to the disappearance of several teenagers. Meanwhile, back in the first dimension, BBA, Angie and the boys find themselves on a journey to understand the truth behind OA's story and the incredible realities she described.
Creators Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij once again return to finish the story they started with the captivating first season of the hit Netflix series. They are executive producing alongside Michael Sugar, Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Sarah Esberg. Aida Rogers will serve as producer.
The returning cast includes Brit Marling, Jason Isaacs, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Emory Cohen, Patrick Gibson, Phyllis Smith, Sharon Van Etten, Will Brill, Brendan Meyer, Ian Alexander, Brandon Perea and Chloë Levine. New guest stars added to this season are Paz Vega, Irene Jacob, Vincent Kartheiser, Sheila Vand, Riz Ahmed.
The OA was renewed for a second season way back in March 2017. But it has taken Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij quite a bit of time to get the characters and story just right in continuing this trippy sci-fi tinged drama. Back in November of last year, Marling had this to say about the process.
"TV shows are created on a yearly cycle primarily because they function off a pattern narrative. The show creator acts as a master tailor, she crafts the pattern for the original garment (pilot). Then other great tailors come in and create new garments out of this same pattern. This allows for creation with great speed and also familiarity, which is one of the things we all love about great TV. Our chapters vary in length, scope, and even genre. There is no pattern. As a result, at every step along the way nothing can be imitated, it has to be invented. The same is true for editing. An editor may solve how best to cut chapter 3, but that learning curve doesn't apply to chapter 5, which is a completely different genre of storytelling."
Well, the long wait is over and new episodes will be here soon. Thanks to Netflix streaming Youtube Channel for a first look at the trailer and the poster. March 22 can't get here soon enough.
