A sequel for “Sense8” is anticipated to come in mid-2016 after an announcement was made for a season 2 renewal, following the 12 episodes it aired in the first season.
The storyline of season 2 will be focusing on the themes of love and loss through the eyes of Rajan (Purab Kohli) and Riley (Tuppence Middleton). In the sophomore season, Rajan and his fiance Kala (Tina Desai) encounter problems in their relationship, with Kala growing closer to Wolfgang (Max Reimelt) instead. Flamed by the fear of losing his fiance, Rajan turns into a person of evil and hate, notes Christian Today. He may turn into a villainous character in season 2, but it is still uncertain at the moment whether the couple will restore their relationship further on in the season or not.
Aside from this, Riley also struggles with her growing love for Will (Brain Smith), but Ysra warns her of falling in love with someone within the cluster.
“This is very dangerous. Love inside a cluster is pathological,” she says, as noted by News Everyday.
Meanwhile, there are also rumors that the characters from season 1 may explore different paths in season 2. Additionally, there may also be new “Sense8” cast members to join the sequel, especially after J. Michael Straczynski talked about different clusters in an exclusive interview with Assignment X.
During the discussion, the news portal asked Straczynski if “sensates” think of their clusters as their own family, not minding others, or more of being part of one cluster but recognizing other sensates outside.
To this, he replied, “I think it’s both.”
He elaborated that some are hiding and not wanting to be seen, while others are more in agreement to the general community of sensates.
“Sense8” is an American science fiction and drama television series revolving around the story of eight strangers from different parts of the world who became linked mentally and emotionally. Regardless of its fictitious nature, it also touches upon real world issues such as politics, religion, identity, sexuality, and gender.
