SENSE8: Co-Creator ‘Cautiously Optimistic’ About Season 2, Cast Reflects on Season 1

SENSE8 launched its first season in June, but its fate is still very much up in the air.

“We’re still awaiting word,” co-creator J. Michael Straczynski told reporters during the show’s Television Critics Association panel. “[But] we’re cautiously optimistic.”

If the series does move forward Straczynski, acknowledged he and co-creators The Wachowskis have a five-year plan. “We’re long-game kind of people,” Straczynski said. “[But] it would not be in the best interest of the surprises we have in mind to [reveal it all now].”

For Straczynski — who recently made the trek to Comic-Con to panel the series — he shared that while talking to fans, “what you realize after talking to them is [the fans have] seen it three, four, five times.”

By being on Netflix, “you don’t have to dilute what you’re trying to do by appealing to everyone,” SENSE8 star Brian J. Smith (Will) added. “You can make your thing and be satisfied with it.”

“The whole reaction has been wonderful…it’s gone so well,” executive producer Grant Hill shared. “There are always people it’s not going to be their thing…[but] the overwhelming enthusiasm has been great.”

And the enthusiasm is also felt by the actors. During the panel, they praised the ability to do different takes on the same scene — and the emotions that get showcased in it — over the course of several months (and cities) due to the nature of the interconnected characters.
