“Sense8” season 2 is a go. Netflix and the official “Sense8” Twitter tweeted a happy birthday video Saturday confirming the series has been renewed for a new season.
Happy birthday, sensates! The news comes, appropriately, on the eighth day of the eighth month—the sensates’ re-birthday. Videos also appeared on the “Sense8” Facebook page.
The series, created by Andy and Lana Wachowski (“Matrix” trilogy, “Cloud Atlas”) and J. Michael Straczynski (“Babylon 5”), explores ideas of identity, gender, sexuality and common human needs through the eyes of eight strangers who are reborn as sensates. The eight evolved humans share each other’s thoughts and emotions, and are able to use each other’s talents and capabilities.
