Netflix Greenlights Sense8 Season Two
Sense8 is one of the more underrated shows in Netflix's catalogue of original programming; with its unusual premise - eight people linked by their senses across the globe - it hasn't gained quite the attention as say Daredevil or House Of Cards and has received mixed reviews. Perhaps then that is why it took over two months for Netflix to announce the renewal, when most of their shows get a next season / series pick up within a week or two.
The long awaited renewal came today, with Netflix tweeting the announcement Birthdays are just the beginning. #sense8 is reborn along with a video message from the cast.
Sense8 is the mastermind of the Wachowskis (The Matrix trilogy) and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5). Just a few days ago, Straczynski said he was 'cautiously optimistic' for a second season. It certainly pushes boundaries, but with rich characters and fascinating ideas Sense8 is certainly worth checking out on Netflix.
