The hauntingly beautiful, consciousness-expanding sci-fi series abruptly ended its run as it became the recent casualty in the latest string of Netflix cancellations. The creator and star of the show, Brit Marling poured over her grief on social media, thankful for all the love and support the series has garnered over the years. While fans across the globe are furious, Marling appears to have come to terms with it.

"Zal and I are deeply sad not to finish this story," says Brit Marling about herself and co-creator Zal Batmanglij on the eve of the show's end. In what was a heartfelt post, Marling went on at length about the nuances of storytelling and its impact on her. She also goes on to reminisce about the moments leading up to the creation of the show, and how she's forever grateful for the opportunity to extend her imagination to beyond what constituted the accepted paradigms of possible.

It comes as no surprise that the show was the given the ax owing to its thematic complexities of spirituality and identity. The time between first and the second season lagged on due to the creator's insistence on perfection, and might therefore not have gone well with Netflix. Regardless, Netflix did us dirty after the insanely meta cliff-hanger!

Both the seasons of 'The OA' starring Brit Marling, Jason Isaacs, Emory Cohen, Phyllis Smith, Patrick Gibson, Ian Alexander, Brandon Perea, and Brendon Meyer are available on Netflix for those who wish to acquaint themselves with this unique show.
