Netflix



Mind-bending drama "The OA" won't be tripping out anymore. Netflix has canceled the series after two seasons.

"The OA" starred Brit Marling as a young woman named Prairie Johnson who resurfaces after having been missing for seven years, now calling herself "The OA" (the "Original Angel") and able to see, despite having been blind before her disappearance.

Season 2, which debuted in March, followed OA to another dimension, where she met a private eye looking into the case of a missing girl.

Marling co-created the series with Zal Batmanglij.

It's unclear if "The OA's" viewership was low, since Netflix does not release ratings data. But while the series received positive critical notice, it did not earn much awards recognition.

"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 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."

"The OA" is among several series canceled by Netflix recently (others include "Tuca and Bertie" and "She's Gotta Have It") as the streaming service reportedly reconsiders how much it spends on original series.
