Jason Isaacs Confirms the Fate of 'The OA'
The series will not be returning for Season 3, despite public outcry
Published Jul 08, 2020English actor Jason Isaacs — who starred alongside Brit Marling in The OA, playing the role of Hap — has confirmed that the short-lived cult favourite series will not be returning for Season 3.
Speaking with This Morning earlier today, the actor firmly denied any possibility of the series' return to Netflix, despite massive outcry, "five moments" protests and even a hunger strike in response to its cancellation.
"Outside Netflix headquarters, outside Trump Tower, some unfortunate lady went on a hunger strike — there was a huge fan movement for it," Isaacs said. "It won't be coming back, but you know, we made two seasons of maybe the most brilliant and original and imaginative that I've been involved with in 32 years."
He added: "Most people I know have got a bit of time on their hands right now, so if you've got Netflix I suggest you watch it, because it just reinvents narrative, it doesn't do the things you expect it to do."
The series aired its first season back in 2016 and was cancelled following its second season last year.
The OA was created by Marling and Zal Batmanglij.
