Fans Declare The OA As The Most Underrated Show Of All Time
A few days ago, Hulu posted a poll to its followers. It asked them to select what they think is the most underrated show of all time, hoping to win some extra love for its already popular Veronica Mars revival. A few loyal Marshmallows did talk about the show, but it certainly wasn’t in the context of being underrated. For most Marshmallows, the return of their cynical heroine Veronica Mars has been satisfying enough. So, they don’t necessarily complain. However, Hulu’s tweet did offer an opportunity for The OA fans to vent their frustration.
Enraged, thousands of The OA fans jumped on the thread to express their disappointment over The OA’s sudden cancellation. Veronica Mars Revival The OA Cancelled season 3

Why Was The OA Cancelled?
Netflix remains mum about why it pulled the plug off the show after its season 2. Its Original Content Vice President, Cindy Holland; however, did release an official statement about the decision. Veronica Mars Revival The OA Cancelled season 3
We are incredibly proud of the 16 mesmerizing chapters of The OA, and are grateful to Brit and [co-creator] Zal [Batmanglij] for sharing their audacious vision and for realizing it through their incredible artistry. We look forward to working with them again in the future, in this and perhaps many other dimensions.
From Holland’s statement, it is very clear that it certainly wasn’t a tiff with the creators that caused Netflix to drop its axe on the show. Holland clearly demonstrates her interest in working with Brit and Zal again, and this has led people to believe that it was probably viewership woes that caused the cancellation.
