In a surprise to viewers, Netflix announced a new series, “The OA,” just four days away from its premiere. The eight-episode mystery/thriller follows a blind woman, Prairie Johnson (Brit Marling), who goes missing, but turns up seven years later with her sight restored.

“I didn’t disappear,” Johnson reveals in the trailer. “I was present for all of it.”

Created and written by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the series starts streaming Friday, Dec. 16, on Netflix.
