Although the short announcement video Netflix posted to announce that Sense8 Season 2 is on the way was a bit awkward, the fact that it is returning is exciting, as we’ve been patiently waiting to hear whether or not it has been renewed.

If you haven’t seen Sense8 just yet, we highly recommend that you check it out on Netflix. The show, which is created by the Wachowski brothers, is one of the best sci-fi dramas we’ve seen in quite some time. J. Michael Straczynski, who helped Andy and Lana Wachowski create the series, noted during TCA’s summer press tour that he was optimistic about a second season, noting the overwhelming fan response.
“There’s been a tendency for science fiction to be seen as something other than for adults — it tends to be about either the MacGuffin, the device, the magic, the gadget, the gimmick or the mission. We wanted to make this show about the journey and [do something] for grown-ups,” Starczynski noted.
We don’t know much about Sense8 Season 2 just yet, but we’ll keep you posted here at Nerd Much, as we’ve been following the show closely. Hopefully, we’ll get a Season 2 release window shortly, and maybe some cast additions. But, we’ll let you know when any of that happens.
