You can thank us later.
If you have a Stranger Things void in your life - and let’s face it, who doesn’t? - then fear no more because we think we may have found something that’ll help you out.
We know, we know, we’re so good to you.
Yep, there’s a brand new sci-fi drama coming to Netflix and we have a feeling that it’s going to be our new obsession.
The OA follows the story of a young woman who goes missing and then returns to her family seven years later, but she fails to recognise them - at first. It’s later revealed that she was blind and could only recognise her parents from touch memory. She then begins to talk about her disappearance by claiming that she “didn’t disappear. I was present for all of it” and if that doesn’t creep you the F out, we don’t know what will.
It’s VERY ‘Stranger Things’… just minus the kids.
The amount of similarities are a bit unnerving and it’s got some fans questioning whether the two series are actually a part of the same universe. If they are, that is one SERIOUSLY unlucky universe.
