posted in TV series | 43 Comments


When will Sense8 season 2 be released on Netflix? Is the show renewed or cancelled? We are waiting for the exact premiere start date in 2016.

The new television series Sense8 debuted on Netflix in June 2015. The creators of the given science fiction drama – Andy and Lana Wachowski together with J. Michael Straczynski, who wrote the script and took the roles of producers. This is the first show, created on Straczynski’s Studio JMS and it can be said with confidence that the debut is successful.

Before its start on Netflix, the project was discussed within numerous film festivals, as quality projects with a similar storyline are very rare today. Initially, 10 episodes were ordered, but during the shootings it appeared that the developed storyline needed more space, so it was decided to increase the number of episodes of the first season to 12. The series focuses on eight strangers of different cultures and parts of the world, who suddenly discover mental and emotional connection between each other. A mysterious stranger named Jonas (Andrews), a powerful person, who tries to gather them together. At the same time, someone named Whispers (Mann) and his team tries to find and destroy the main characters. Each episode is devoted to one character and his story.

Sense8 explores the issues of political views, identity, sexuality and gender, which, according to screenwriters, are overlooked or poorly illustrated in science fiction television series. After its release on Netflix, the show immediately became popular and gained the attention of the great army of fans of science fiction ideas. More than half a million viewers assessed the given television series and the average value comprised 4.1 points out of 5. The first season wasn’t very exciting for experts. Some illogical moments of the plot caused a real dissatisfaction. On Metacritic the show gained 63 points out of 100, and on Rotten Tomatoes – 5.8/10.

At the moment everyone wonders if Sense8 has Season 2 and of course everyone wants to know its premiere date. The creators are sure the renewal will be released in 2016, as the script is written for five seasons and a cast is chosen for the same period. J. Michael Straczynski believes that Netflix will make the right decision and will announce about the renewal of the show for the second season soon, as there are all reasons for that.

    I find this to be one of the most fascinating tv shows I have watched in years. As a cross-cultural specialist, I am amazed that so many cultures are intertwined in this show. I find the photography to be excellent, the acting superb, and the general plotlines highly intriguing. I look forward to viewing the entire season I again soon, to look for more details that I missed the first time. I very much look forward to Season 2.

    There better be a second season. This is just the opening for a new beginning of more episodes. Very well written and the actors…Nobody else can play there roles.

Thank you to those for making this series available.

  39. Lola06

    This show is amazing! Definitely a “10!” 1st half of Season 1 learning a little about each character. As the episodes started to match up the characters, emphasizing each strengths and weaknesses–totally hooked me forever to want more. Love the diversity of character types/cultures and story lines.
