Prairie Johnson is finally back.
Remember the Netflix hit The OA, that premiered around Christmas in 2016? Well it’s taken over two years, but it’s finally coming back with The OA Part II. Brit Marling stars in the show, which she created with longtime collaborator, Zal Batmanglij. In the first season, Marling’s character, Prairie Johnson, comes back home after being missing for seven years. Previously blind, Prairie now can see perfectly, and she brings together a group of lonely and unique people to hear her story.
What’s coming in Part II
After being wounded by a shooter at the high school, Prairie awakens to discover her consciousness has been transported to an alternate version of herself. Now she has to work with a private investigator named Karim Washington, played by the charming Kingsley Ben-Adir, to find a missing girl.
Netflix’s official description of season two:
The “mind-bending” story returns with The OA Part II, which follows OA as she navigates a new dimension, one in which she had a completely different life as a Russian heiress, and one in which she once again finds herself as Hap’s captive. Part II introduces Karim Washington, a private detective tasked with finding a missing teen, Michelle Vu. His path crosses with OA, as they try to solve the mystery of Michelle’s whereabouts and a house on Nob Hill connected to the disappearance of several teenagers. Meanwhile, back in the first dimension, BBA, Angie and the boys find themselves on a journey to understand the truth behind OA’s story and the incredible realities she described.
It once again stars Brit Marling as Prairie Johnson, Jason Isaacs as Hap, Emory Cohen as Homer, and Scott Wilson as Prairie’s father, Abel. Wilson recently passed, so it’ll be nice to see him on screen one last time. Also returning are Patrick Gibson, Phyllis Smith, Sharon Van Etten, Will Brill, Brendan Meyer, Ian Alexander, Brandon Perea, and Chloë Levine.
