Description: One gunshot, one death, one moment out of time that irrevocably links eight minds in disparate parts of the world, putting them in each other’s lives, each other’s secrets, and in terrible danger. Ordinary people suddenly reborn as “Sensates.” Netflix
Comment: The renewal announcement for this series did not come as a huge surprise because Netflix has given all of its original shows a second season so far. However, the streaming service did drag its heals about making a decision indicating that it may have taken some negotiations for the second round of episodes to happen. And it may be telling that Netflix tweeted “#sense8 is reborn” suggesting that there may be some retooling of the series when it returns. Opinion on the show has been mixed thus far, but it will be getting at least one more season to prove itself.
