Sense8, Netflix's original sci-fi series from the Wachowskis, is coming back for season two. The long-awaited news was announced on Twitter today via a video from the show's cast.
Fans were starting to get concerned that Sense8 was going to disappear. The promising new show — which let the Wachowskis and writer J. Michael Straczynski stretch their legs a bit — went an unusually long time between its premiere on Netflix and the announcement that a second season was on the way. Most Netflix original series get renewed or cancelled soon after their first release — the longest wait has typically been around a month. But Sense8 came out over two months ago.
Nevertheless, the show is officially returning. It seems nearly certain that Straczynski and the Wachowskis are back on board — they had previously announced that they had designed the show around a five-season story arc — though no official details are available yet. We also don't know when you'll get to watch the group of sense-sharing individuals continue their story, but Netflix does note that season two is "coming soon."
