Netflix is known for producing binge-worthy dramas, and from Orange is the New Black to Stranger Things, their original series are now up to par with most TV distributors.

Thankfully, they aren’t looking to stop anytime soon, as their next drama, The OA, is set to be released this week. 

Netflix’s decision to release a tense and eerie trailer just four days before the series' premiere suggests they obviously have a lot of faith in it. Then again, that’s not surprising since their last sci-fi/horror series Stranger Things was such a huge hit that it could probably already be considered a cult classic.

This new show appears to be a mix of mystery, sci-fi and horror. Netflix have described it as a “powerful, mind-bending tale about identity, human connection and the borders between life and death.” Sounds promising, right?

In terms of storyline, not much is given away from the trailer. Prairie Johnson (played by Brit Marling, who is also co-creator and producer of the show - impressive much?) has returned to her family after being missing for seven years. To make things ever weirder, she was blind when she went missing, and now she’s not... cue the WTF reactions.

The series also stars Scott Wilson (aka Hershel from The Walking Dead) and Jason Isaacs (Peter Pan, Harry Potter). If that's not a good enough reason to watch it, I don't know what is.

So, what happened to Prairie Johnson? Will the show delve into the supernatural and give her superpowers, or was she just tortured by a psychopathic lunatic that made her lose her mind? And what the hell does “The OA” mean?

We have no idea, but we're looking forward to finding out.

The OA hits Netflix this Friday, 16th December.
