Is Sense8 Coming Back For A Second Season?

Typically, Netflix renews their original programming within a few weeks of its streaming debut. Sense8 was a bit of a slow burn, but by the season finale, I was completely hooked. All the sensates finally joined forces to kick some major ass and save one of their own. Naturally, I, like so many other fans, are hoping for a second season of the sexy sci-fi series.

When the Wachowskis sat down for the show’s Television Critics Association panel along with actors Jamie Clayton, Brian J. Smith, Daryl Hannah and Naveen Andrews, many were hopeful a second season renewal would be announced. Sadly, that never happened.

“We’re still awaiting word [about season two], and we’re cautiously optimistic, but it’s Netflix’s call,” – co-creator J. Michael Straczynski revealed on the panel.

“The way that the Wachowskis and I tend to work — we created the show together and we are running the show together — we are long-thinking people,” Straczynski added. “We look down the road and we say to ourselves, ‘Where is this going to go?’ … Season one is like an origin story and season two has some particular arc and we figure it out from there. But to spoil that here would not be the best interest of the surprise at the end.”

When addressing the show’s graphic sex scenes including that unforgettable orgy moment, he added.

“We wanted to do a show that was really for adults and grownups,” said Straczynski. “There’s a tendency for science fiction to be seen as something other than for adults. It tends to be the device, the gadget, the mission and not about the journey so much.”

Why is Netflix dragging their feet on a second season? Were the streaming numbers that awful? Or is the cost of the show a factor? With eight regular actors shooting in various global locations, I can’t imagine producing Sense8 being a cheap venture.
