Last month, Sense8 producer J. Michael Straczynski told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that he was "cautiously optimistic" about the prospects of a Season 2 renewal. Well, word has finally arrived from our overlords Netflix regarding the show's future and it's definitely what some would consider "good news."
Much like the series itself, the announcement that the Wachowskis' brain-mushing drama will be back for round two was a little more complex than the renewals for most shows. In honor of the August 8 birthday that is shared by the show's main characters, the cast posted a video on Twitter Saturday morning wishing all a happy birthday. After a bunch of celebratory singing, they shared the news about the pickup for Season 2. You can watch the announcement below:
