Netflix remained tight-lipped over Sense8 Season 2 at today’s TCA, despite renewing BoJack Horseman for Season 3.
However, co-creator J. Michael Straczynski says he’s “cautiously optimistic” about renewal, though he admits that there isn’t back-up plan should Netflix decide to cancel the sci-fi series, per CBR:
Asked if there is a back-up plan to continue the story if, as the questioner put it, “Netflix stupidly decides not to order a second season,” JMS was adamant. “We always plan for success. In all the seasons I did of Babylon 5, we never had a ‘Plan B.’ There is no back-up plan.”
Reiterating the five-year plan for Sense8, per Deadline:
Responding to whether there was a five-year plan for the show, and plot details, Straczynski said “Heck, No! But we’re long game kind of people. For ourselves, for the writing, we have to figure out where all this pays off. Season one is obviously about origins.”
