Netflix Isn't Making an 'OA' Movie to Wrap Up Series

But talks of a wrap-up movie for The OA-which originally had a five-season plan-have now ended after it was determined that giving The OA a two-hour movie to end the series wouldn't have been enough, and The OA's actors are no longer attached to the series.

The OA was generally well-received by fans and critics, however, the American mystery drama with science fiction, supernatural, and fantasy elements was canceled by Netflix after its second season on the streaming site.

As Variety reports, there are no current plans to wrap up the series with a movie (like Netflix did with Sense8).

Some fans believed the show's initial cancellation to be an elaborate publicity stunt due in part to the second season wrapping in such a meta way, with OA (Marling) getting sucked into another dimension where her name is Brit Marling, the actual name of the titular character's portrayer.

It appears to be the end of the line for OA fans, who've led a passionate campaign for weeks to convince Netflix to reverse its decision to cancel the series, one of several created by women to have gotten the ax in the past several months. "Not mine. And the story keeps going inside them".

"We're humbled, to be honest floored, by the outpouring of support for The OA", Marling wrote.

Flashmobs have also popped up across the U.S., with fans performing the curious dance moves that were featured in season one. "Not because the show must continue, but because for some people its unexpected cancellation begs larger questions about the role of storytelling and its fate inside late capitalism's push toward consolidation and economies of scale".

"Because Netflix itself is the producer of "The OA, ' another network can't swoop in to rescue the show, as Pop recently did with the Sony-produced 'One Day at a Time.' The cast of 'The OA" have been released from their contracts", the site further reveals.

So, how do you feel about The OA ending for good?
