'The OA' season 3: What the future holds for Prairie Johnson as she traverses to new dimensions
‘The OA’ has gained immense popularity over the past two-and-a-half-year and there has been a lot of fan speculations regarding the plot of season 3
'The OA' part one marked the dawn of a new age sci-fi based series that takes on the transference in the lifestyle and existence of an adopted young blind girl Prairie Johnson, played by actress Brit Marling.
The story starts with her reemergence after she had gone missing for seven years. Upon her return, she is unable to identify and recall her true identity, claiming herself to be known as 'The OA' which stands for Original Angel.
There are signs of scars on her back and she has regained vision despite having been blind before her disappearance. The OA refuses to tell her adoptive parents and the FBI about her whereabouts and how she got her eyesight back.
The series starts off with a Part one ( Season one) introducing her character to the viewers. She's seen jumping off a bridge and then landing up in the hospital bed where she is being questioned by the hospital nurse with regards to her identity.
The story moves on with Prairie assembling a team of four high school students and a teacher to whom she decides to reveal her true self and explains her life story and purpose. The story goes on to show how her team goes out to rescue others who are claimed to be missing by her by opening a portal into a different dimension of existence.
Part two ( Season two) which released in March 2019 brought a more in-depth understanding of what OA is and how she came back to existence changing her dimensions with her group of followers. The second part of the story traverses her into another dimension based in San Francisco so that she can continue with her search to find her former captor Hap and the other captives.
Prairie meets private eye Karim Washington ( Kingsley Ben-Adir) to assist him in his investigation of the surreal disappearance of a missing girl. The missing girl has some connection with an abandoned house that is claimed to have supernatural history and an online puzzle game.
Meanwhile during all these, in the original time dimension, there is an occurrence of a series of unfortunate events which propel the OA's five companions to embark on a road trip across the US to seek answers to her questions and assist her in her quest.
The series has gained immense popularity over the past two-and-a-half-year and there has been a lot of fan speculations regarding the plot of part three ( season three).
Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the maker and the director of the series, aim to bring out a very futuristic outlook into the life, and it might come ahead of us by the introduction of a supernatural being on Earth namely 'Original Angel'.
The idea behind bringing a concept such as this which is fresh and new to the mindsets of the audience is to give them a broader perspective on what the future existence of life on Earth could look like.
Netflix hasn't yet confirmed the future of the show, but Cindy Holland, vice president of the original series at Netflix, told Indiewire that the story has been prepped to span five seasons, so the fan base is hopeful.
The OA series has gained a huge fanbase in the span of two-and-a-half-years since its debut on December 2016. So, will there be a discovery of a new dimension or will the rescue plan continue? We'll have to wait for the next season to find out the answers.
