Sometimes, really cool-looking TV shows appear out of nowhere. The freshly revealed Netflix drama The OA is one of those and it looks eerie and good.

Debuting this Friday in an eight-episode chunk, The OA comes from Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the filmmakers behind the excellent Another Earth and Sound of My Voice. It looks like it’ll focus on the mysterious disappearance and return of a young woman who may have crossed onto other planes of existence.

The show’s official Instagram page offers a few more teases but it mostly worth scrolling through as a fun, clever use of the platform.
