Is Netflix’s New Series The OA the next Stranger Things?
Netflix has found a winning formula in not only the choice of series they feature on their streaming site, but also in the marketing of those series. Recently, they dropped a surprise trailer for their newest thriller series called The OA. The surprise comes in the fact that the series premieres this Friday December 16, 2016.
Not much is known about the series beyond the trailer, which you can see below.
The series stars Brit Marling (Another Earth) who is also the co-creator, writer and Executive producer along with co-creator and series director Zal Batmanglij (The Sound of My Voice). Marling plays Prairie Johnson, a woman who went missing seven years prior and resurfaces back in her small town. The circumstances of her disappearance and return are strange enough without the added mystery involving the fact that Prairie was blind when she went missing and now can see.
As Prairie tries to return to her life and new circumstances, her family and everyone else involved tries to unravel the mystery of her disappearance and what her new sight means. The series also stars Scott Wilson (The Walking Dead), Alice Krige (Tyrant) and Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets).
This series has snuck under the radar for most viewers and the fact that it has is giving the new series some curious attention before its Friday launch.
