Is Netflix’s Newest Show The Next Stranger Things?

Share

Yesterday, Netflix pulled a Beyoncé by dropping the trailer for a surprise new show, The OA, which debuts on Friday. The thriller is about a young woman named Prairie Johnson (played by Brit Marling) who returns back to her hometown seven years after disappearing. What’s most remarkable about her resurfacing, however, is that though she was blind when she left, she’s returned with the ability to see. What happened in the years between remains a mystery until, we hope, this Friday, when some or all will be revealed in the series’ eight episodes. We know what we’ll be doing this weekend, with apologies to those for whom we still need to buy holiday gifts. Watch the trailer below.
