At the show’s TCA panel last month, executive producer J. Michael Straczynski told reporters that he was “still awaiting word” about a pickup, adding, “We’re cautiously optimistic, but, ultimately, it’s Netflix’s call.”
Sense8 — from Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix) — follows a group of eight individuals from around the globe, all of whom are connected by a mysterious vision. The cast includes Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), Naveen Andrews (Lost) and Tuppence Middleton (Sinbad).
