Sense8 Season 3 has yet to be officially cancelled or renewed by Netflix, but with five seasons originally planned to end the series, star Jamie Clayton already has designs on a third season, per THR:
I know that when they pitched the show to Netflix it was with a five-season arc. I don’t know what they’re thinking at this point, but one thing we thought about as a cast was how interesting it was that you meet new sensates and a new cluster. If ours was written with five, it’s insane to imagine the story possibilities that are there if you keep meeting sensates. But I’m not a writer. I’m an actor. This season went in a direction that I couldn’t have imagined. J. Michael Straczynski and the Wachowskis came up with this totally crazy pants, off-the-charts idea where nothing like it has ever been done before. It’s resonated so deeply with so many people and then so many other people hate it, which I love. People who understood that you were watching an origin story unfold the first season can now watch the actual story as it’s propelled forward.
How this season ends, with all of us in the back of that van, it’s crazy that we’re all together physically for the first time. There are scenes where we’ll all together in an emotional sense where we’re all visiting and sharing, but that was emotionally different for me as an actor. I remember getting in the back of that van and having a little moment, saying something to Freema like, “Shit, we’re all actually here.” There was a weight to that. It echoes the season one finale in that it was a visiting moment in the boat, and now we’re all physically there in the back of a van. Maybe if there is a season three we’ll all end up in the back of a train or plane! Seems to be a theme. But whatever they want, that’s what I want.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Sense8 Season 3 and potentially beyond…
