Netflix, last Saturday, announced that a season 2 of Sense8 was on the way. The announcement was made through a special birthday message by the cast to the characters. All sensates were born on the same day, August 8, which is part of what ties them together.

Created by the Wachowskis, Sense8 follows the story of eight people from around the world whose lives are suddenly and inexplicably connected in a fight for their own survival. It stars J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Tina Desai, Doona Bae, Aml Ameen and Max Riemelt.
I was genuinely scared there wasn’t going to be a season two. The first season ended in such a way that the audience got some sort of closure, and since Netflix does not publish the figures for their shows, it was hard to tell whether or not the show did well enough to warrant a second season.
If you haven’t seen the first season, you totally should. All 12 episodes of the first season are available on Netflix. If you still need a little more convincing, then you can watch the trailer below.
