If you were a fan of Netflix’s The OA, you’re familiar with creators Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij’s ability to weave a twisting, turning mystery that keeps viewers guessing throughout.

The murder mystery centers on Darby Hart (Emma Corrin), a 24-year-old hacker sleuth referred to as “Gen Z Sherlock Holmes” who is invited to attend a reclusive billionaire’s secret retreat after publishing a true-crime memoir chronicling how she and her then-boyfriend Bill Farrah (Harris Dickinson) solved a string of serial murders as teenagers.
