Netflix released the trailer and premiere date for upcoming series “The OA” Monday morning, telling its viewers to “trust the unknown” in anticipation for the series’ premiere on Friday, Dec. 16.
From creators Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the eight-episode season follows Prairie Johnson (Marling), a missing blind woman who finally returns to her family after seven years with her sight restored. Though Prairie is said to “remember everything,” she refuses to talk about what happened to her during her time away from home, leaving viewers to contemplate what exactly befell her all those years ago.
“I didn’t disappear,” says Prairie in the trailer. “I was present for all of it.”
Alongside Marling, the series stars Emory Cohen (“Brooklyn”), Scott Wilson (“The Walking Dead”), Phyllis Smith (“The Office”), Jason Isaacs (the “Harry Potter” films), Alice Krige (“Star Trek: First Contact”), Patrick Gibson (“The Tudors”), Brendan Meyer (“Mr. Young”), and more. Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner and Sarah Esberg from Plan B Entertainment and Michael Sugar from Anonymous Content, alongside Batmanglij and Marling.
All eight episodes of “The OA” will stream on globally Netflix starting Friday, Dec. 16.
