This post contains spoilers for the first season of The OA, by the way.

The OA, which dropped on Netflix towards the end of last year, left on a really intense note (do not scroll down if you haven't seen the final episode).

It wasn't obvious at all whether the final episode was the end of the whole show, or whether there was more to the story.

The last scene involves Prairie/The OA (Brit Marling) seeing Homer (Emory Cohen) in what appeared to be heaven, after being shot.

And there were many unanswered questions, like what on earth happened to everyone in the bunker?

Well, now there's closure. At a Netflix event in New York today, Zal Batmanglij, The OA's co-creator and writer, mentioned that the show will be returning.

It has not been filmed yet, though. Speaking at the event, Batmanglij also said he thinks that The OA wouldn’t have worked on traditional linear television. "We didn't think there was any home for what we were making. We were sailing out, hoping that a harbour would appear and it did."
