The trending hashtag #TheOAisReal, along with #SaveTheOA, is pushing to try to save the sci-fi series, which saw two seasons before being canceled. A majority of the videos feature people doing the Five Movements, a choreographed dance that can open up other dimensions (and distract school shooters). While some of the interpretations are more humorous, a good number of people express how much the series meant to them or helped them, especially in terms of mental health.
The OA gave me meaning in dark times. It made me question life and find beauty where I had given up on finding it. Most of all it made me feel. We won’t give up. We have the will. #TheOAisReal pic.twitter.com/hQCMpV2DZY— SAVE THE OA (@SaveTheOAPlease) August 12, 2019
The OA‘s Jason Isaacs also posted a video of himself and co-star Emory Cohen doing the movements, a few days before the cancelation was announced.

A peek behind #TheOA curtain: Homer and Hap stepping it up and sweating like Sumos. Hour three in the studio and this is take 37 of hundreds – interdimensional travel's not for wimps. To the many obsessed and wonderful devotees who approach me all over the world to ask if and when we're carrying on the story: I'm in the same club as you – I think it's utterly brilliant, I'm dying to know what happens next and I'm waiting for the phone to ring. Don't ask me #AskNetflix! @britmarling @z_al @the_oa #EmoryCohen @netflix #LordsOfTheDance #MagicMikeNine – They're Back, They've Let Themselves Go A Bit, And They're Dressed For Yoga.
