After a prolonged silence about Netflix show The OA's season 2, lead actress and co-creator Brit Marling has finally shared an update from the show.
The actress, who has sort of been missing from action for a while now, took to Instagram to announce that the second season filming has been completed.
She shared a picture from the sets featuring herself and director Andrew Haigh holding on a clapboard while there is chaos behind the two. The actress revealed that Haigh has directed two of the new episodes. Judging by the clapboard, he might have directed the season 2 episode 6 of the show.
Marling also revealed that the post-production of the season 2 episodes is going on in full swing. She wrote, "We are about to finish (today) all principal photography on Part II of The OA. The great filmmaker Andrew Haigh came to direct two chapters up in Oregon while Zal Batmanglij and I have been in the edit on the others in LA and NY."
A few hours before she shared the update, Zal shared a stunning visual of Marling from the sets of The OA. However, it did not reveal any spoilers about the new season or episodes, apart from that the episode was shot in Oregon. The two have kept the air date and episode numbers under the wraps as well. But fans could expect the new episodes to drop by end of this year.

This is Andrew and me fleeing magic hour on set yesterday with the slate. I love being on set with Andrew. I’ve learned so much from watching him work — his calm, his care with actors. If you haven’t seen his films — #weekendfilm #45years #leanonpete — do it! ? @z_al
