Netflix had quite a whirlwind year, with the shocking Orange is the New Black death and the surprise hit Stranger Things. So we were amazed when the streaming service revealed in early December that it had one more new series for us to watch. Sci-fi thriller The OA hit Netflix on December 16th and was immediately all anybody was talking about. The eight-episode season had fans begging for more.

Today, in a Facebook live event with Vulture, co-creator Brit Marling revealed that the series will be airing as second season on Netflix. Along with the announcement, Netflix released a very eerie teaser, which doesn’t reveal anything other than that the show has been picked up for another season.

The season, which is being called “part two,” doesn’t have a release date yet, but we’re hoping it’ll air sometime towards the end of 2017 or early 2018. Of why they’re calling it “part two” as opposed to season two, Marling says it’s because her and co-creator Zal Batmanglij see the show as a series of books.

In terms of how the second season will pick up after the first, Marling said,

The first season of The OA featured a star-studded cast including Marling, The Office’s Phyllis Smith, Riz Ahmed, Brooklyn’s Emory Cohen, Jason Isaacs, and The Walking Dead’s Scott Wilson. We’re hoping that Marling is hinting that these actors will all return for the second season, even those who we thought were killed off in the first.

Though it goes without saying, we can’t wait to learn more about the second season!
