Two-Hour Sense8 Special Coming in 2018

Because Netflix does not release their internal data, we never know what exact numbers make a show a hit on everyone’s go-to streaming service. But whatever numbers those numbers are, the science fiction series Sense8 was not hitting them. The series was cancelled earlier this month following the debut of its second season and the show’s small but extremely passionate fanbase let their voices be heard. They were not going to let this one go down without a fight.

And now, a glimmer of hope: while the show will not return for a third season, a two-hour special is on the way for 2018, hopefully giving the show the grand finale it warrants and the fans the closure they desire.

sense8 season 2 trailer

I’m a huge fan of just about everything Lana and Lilly Wachowski have touched (yes, even the Matrix sequels), but I never got around to watching Sense8, the science fiction series they co-created with J. Michael Straczynski for Netflix. However, the arrival of the trailer for the second season may be the kick in the butt I need to get around to this one. This show looks goofy and thoughtful and action-packed and honest and silly and visually dynamic…well, it looks in line with past work by both the Wachowskis and Straczynski.

Sense8 season 2 images / 202 - Lito, Capheus, Sun

With apologies to my loved ones, the best Christmas gift I got last year was the Sense8 holiday special. It had been over a year since the first season hit Netflix, and the two-hour extravaganza had everything I’d hoped for from the return — drama, action, romance, tons of earnest metaphysical nonsense, and, yes, even a meticulously choreographed orgy. Best of all, it heralded the arrival of even more episodes to come in the new year, with Sense8 season 2 scheduled to hit in May.

Of course, May’s still a ways away. But Netflix isn’t leaving us completely high and dry. They’ve just dropped a big batch of Sense8 season 2 images, teasing more good times, more bad times, and lots of sweet cluster meetings that are probably going to make me cry. Flip through the new photos below.

Sense8 Christmas Special trailer - Tina Desai as Kala and Max Riemelt as Wolfgang

Generally speaking, I’m not much of a holiday person. I’m just too cold and dead inside to get caught up in the magic of it all. But if there’s one thing that can get me to feel some seasonally appropriate warm fuzzies, it’s probably Sense8, a show so earnestly empathetic that I find it impossible to resist. And wouldn’t you know it, they’ve got a Christmas special coming just in time.

Created by Lana WachowskiLilly Wachowski, and J. Michael Straczynski, the sci-fi drama centers on eight people around the world who realize they’re psychically and spiritually linked. There’s some of the usual sci-fi drama stuff about digging for answers and running from another “cluster” out to harm them, but mostly it’s about how wonderful it is that these eight people basically have seven extra friends rattling around in their heads. If you haven’t seen season one, you’ve still got a few days left to catch up before the special drops next week. If you have seen season one, you should click on through to find out what’s next. Watch the Sense8 Christmas special trailer below. Read More »

Sense8 season 2 premiere date

Netflix comes bearing gifts. Whether they’re wanted or unwanted gifts, though, will depend on your tolerance for Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski‘s brand of metaphysical sci-fi insanity. The streaming service has officially announced that a Sense8 Christmas special will drop later this month, just as we suspected. But that’s not all. They’ve also confirmed a Sense8 season 2 premiere date for 2017, and shared a batch of first-look photos from the new run of episodes.  Read More »

Rumor: ‘Sense8’ Christmas Special Coming Next Month

sense8 Christmas special

If Lana and Lilly Wachowski‘s particular brand of gonzo sci-fi metaphysicality is up your alley (and I say that with no judgment; it is very much up mine), Netflix may have a gift waiting under the tree for you next month. It looks like a Sense8 Christmas special will be dropping just a few days before the holiday, possibly ahead of a full Sense8 season 2 release in 2017.  Read More »
