Sense8 renewed for second season on Netflix

The Wachowskis' weird and wildly divisive TV series Sense8 is returning to Netflix for a second season. The show revolves around eight people scattered across the globe, who discover that they're somehow mentally connected. It's an ambitious and adventurous stab at extending a unique sci-fi premise into an episodic format, and found a dedicated following on the streaming outlet. Now that success has been rewarded with the season two greenlight.

To celebrate the news of its continuation, the cast sang Happy Birthday to the show in a video clip, and Netflix dropped a preview of a 30-minute behind-the-scenes documentary delving into the making of season one. You can check out the latter below...

All twelve episodes of season one are currently available on Netflix.
