The OA is coming back to Netflix with Part II this March and the official trailer just dropped. Here is what we know.

Brit Marlin’s, Prairie (The OA), has woken up to find herself in an alternative universe and nothing is as she remembers. The setting now takes place in San Francisco and her once Midwestern lifestyle has taken a drastic change in the new universe. In this life she is rich – and the experiments that took place in the previous season by the mad scientist Hap may have never happened? It takes place seven years after vanishing from her home as she returns with mysterious new abilities and recruits five strangers for a secret mission.

EW recently spoke to Marling about the new season;
“It was really delicious to dive back into a realm you had been intimate with and land in the body of someone who had not been through all the experiences we watch Prairie go through in Part I,” she says.

Kingsley Ben-Adir returns as a private detective named Karim Washington. He is looking for a missing woman that goes by the name of Michelle Vu and the whereabouts of teenagers that went missing in a mansion on Nob Hill.

“We think of Part II as very much a noir,” says Marling’s longtime collaborator Zal Batmanglij, who co-created the show with the actress. “We wanted to come in through the character of a cynical detective. Films like The Big Sleep didn’t seem antiquated [when they came out]. They were very modern. That’s why we thought, ‘What better place than San Francisco and the tech world to set a noir today?’”

Kingsley Ben-Adir plays a major new character named Karim Washington, a boat-dwelling private detective tasked with finding a young woman, Michelle Vu, who had been playing an online game. 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.

Scott Wilson returns to the series and is said to have a “very critical scene” this season. He filmed his parts before his untimely death from Leukemia last year.
