Are Zal Batmanglij’s recent Instagram posts teasing The OA’s return?

The OA may be getting a season 3 after all 15

It’s been almost two years since Netflix canceled The OA after two seasons. But speculations of a potential third season have started to surface when series co-creator Zal Batmanglij shared a string of cryptic posts on Instagram last Sunday.

Batmanglij’s first post shows a clip of rippling water, followed by an image of a magenta square, a white square with a small letter “f” on the center, a cyan square, and a yellow square.

None of the posts comes with a caption, but a lot of fans think that they are teasers for a third season of The OA. While some fans have tried to connect the mysterious posts to the potential return of the mystery drama series starring Brit Marling, others are simply hoping that Batmanglij are not trolling them or playing with their feelings.

Launched in December 2016, The OA stars Marling as Prairie Johnson, a young woman who resurfaces after missing for seven years. Prairie now calls herself “The OA” and can see, despite having been blind before her disappearance.

Batmanglij and his fellow series co-creator Marling envisioned The OA as a five-season series, but in August 2019, Netflix canceled the series after its sophomore run, leaving the show with a cliffhanger ending.

To help The OA find a new home, fans launched the #SaveTheOA campaign. They also started a Change.org petition calling Netflix to reverse its decision and at least give the show a third season or a few episodes to wrap its story properly. Sadly, despite these efforts, the series has remained canceled.

Shortly after the cancellation news, Marling wrote a letter to the fans, revealing that she and Batmanglij were “deeply sad” about Netflix’s decision to pull the plug on the series. After thanking Netflix for allowing them to tell the show’s two seasons uncompromisingly, and the fans for their support and being so passionate about the series, Marling ended the letter by saying that “maybe, in some ways, it’s okay not to conclude [the stories of] these characters. [So] Steve Winchell (Patrick Gibson) will be suspended in time, in our imaginations, infinitely evolving, forever running after and finally reaching the ambulance and OA.”
