Most prime time shows just aired their mid-season finales, but here comes Netflix to the rescue.  In an unique movie, the streaming service just announced the debut of a mysterious new series entitled ‘The OA’ which is set to premiere… Friday!

Yes, there has been nary a peep about this show, minus some cryptic clips posted to Twitter, but now here is the trailer along with the release date, December 16, 2016.

The eight-episode show was co-created by Sundance Film Festival favorites Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij who previously collaborated on the films ‘The Sound of My Voice’ (2011) and ‘The East’ (‘The East’).  Marling and Batmanglij wrote and are executive producing together, with Batmanglij directing and Marling starring in the lead role as Prairie Johnson.

Beyond that, not much is known about the series and you’re sure as hell not gonna figure much out from the mysterious trailer, but check it out:

Guess you’ll have to watch it to figure out what that’s all about.  If I had to guess, I’d say it’s about fog.

Okay, kidding.

The show follows a missing blind woman, Prairie Johnson (Marling), who mysteriously returns home after seven years with her sight restored. Refusing to talk to the FBI or her parents, she instead shares her story with a group of teenagers and a high-school algebra teacher, all of whom she recruits for a larger mission.

‘The OA’ also stars Emory Cohen as Homer, Scott Wilson as Abel Johnson, Alice Krige as Nancy Johnson, Patrick Gibson as Steve Winchell, Brendan Meyer as Jesse, Ian Alexander as Buck Vu, Brandon Perea as French, Victor Slezak as Kevin Harris, Rosalind Chao as Patricia Knowler, Sean Grandillo as Miles Brekov, J.C. MacKenzie as Dr. Mark Shea, and Will Brill as Scott Brown.  In unknown roles are Phyllis Smith, Jason Isaacs, Paz Vega and Robbie Tucker.
