The OA Season 3 Release Date
The third season of The OA has officially been cancelled by Netflix, as announced in August, 2019. However, there is still a little hope that Netflix might reconsider their decision since the second season did not receive a proper ending and the loyal fans are really disappointed with it. The first season of the series was released on December 16, 2016 on Netflix with eight episodes in all. It was renewed for a sequel on February 8, 2017 and finally the whole season was dropped on March 22, 2019. Originally, the show was planned to have five seasons in all, but was cancelled even though it had favourable critical reception, and was praised for directions, acting, and visuals.
The show’s cancellation was not taken up in a positive way by the fans. Twitter was flooded with SaveTheOA and #TheOAisReal on Twitter and the fans even signed a number of petitions to bring the show back. Moreover, some of the fans also posted videos of themselves while performing to the steps from the show, and raised money for Times Square’s digital billboard. Although the love and support from the fans were appreciated by the shoemakers, they haven’t changed their decision yet.
Here is the trailer of the second season of the show. You can watch it here in case you haven’t already.
