On August 5, 2019, Netflix canceled The OA series after its two seasons, leaving the show with a closed book. The news dejected the fans who were impatient for the removal of the question mark in the former season. The second season was even more interesting because it broke the records of the first one. It is obvious that the fans are hurt. Some took to Twitter to bring back season three while one of them raised funds for digital billboards in Times Square and another went on to have a hunger strike. The second season was aired on March 22, 2019, on Netflix which was dubbed as “Part II”.
