Sci-fi Netflix series The OA certainly provoked reactions of intrigue and confusion, with the first season ending on a cliffhanger that was particularly controversial. According to the show’s co-creator and star Brit Marling, a year after the first season first hit the streaming service, “Part II” of the series will begin filming next month.
Excited and terrified by the road map of these 8 scripts, which took us all summer and fall to write. Shooting Part II of @The_OA starts Jan 2018. Here goes something… @z_al@BARFHpic.twitter.com/1xWKdrtXjQ

The second season will again consist of eight episodes, with an unknown release date. The tweeted picture has Marling, who portrays protagonist Prairie Johnson, aka the titular “OA,” sitting in front of the eight episode scripts. The title for the first episode can clearly be read: “Angel of Death.”
After the OA was struck by a stray bullet from an attempted school shooting, this first episode of Part II will likely reveal her ultimate fate and the consequences of the last season’s finale.
