Production

In February 2017, just 2 months after the premiere of Part I, confirmation that Netflix had renewed The OA for a Part II was revealed.[2] A teaser trailer was released on February 8, 2017 by Netflix and shared on social media accounts of the cast and crew. 

Location scouting and research for Part II occurred beginning in Spring 2017. Creator Brit Marling shared a photo of San Francisco on her social media account. Writing for Part II took place from Summer through Fall 2017, documented by Brit an Zal.

"/// early dayz writers room part II @the_oa /// @z_al (my partner in crime), Sarah Esberg (one of our producers from plan b), @dbholland theGlueoftheVisualWorld' 'I decided the only way to keep our sanity while making another 8 hour story was to get out of the fluorescent lights of an office on a studio lot and move the writers room to a small apt we could all walk to with trees out the windows and a kitchen. I think it's working... Two weeks left in the writers room and one chapter left to write. Wish us luck ✊🏽"

OA Part II

Marling responds to fans.

Filming began in January 2018. 1 year after the release of Part I, the script covers of Part II's 8 Chapters were posted on social media. Chapter 1 of the anticipated Part II was revealed to be titled "Angel of Death"[5].

Marling issued a statement to fans anticipating the release of Part II, explaining the creative reasoning behind the amount of time taken between parts. She describes The OA as an enigma of it's own kind, with no set patterns or expected timeframes for development. She cites "our producer had to throw out pattern budgets the industry normally works with because each chapter required completely different resources to achieve scripts of different lengths, casts, and ambitions. She differentiated the work as a different genre of storytelling, that unlike many other cinematic productions is not an adaptation of an already written story. Marling describes The OA as "neither film nor TV, but a new kind of storytelling."
