Fans of Netflix’s globe-spanning mindtrip drama Sense8 were put on edge by the fact that the streaming service brought the Wachowski-led series to the recent TCA press tour without news of a Season 2 renewal, but never fear. You, and all seven of your other selves will enjoy a second season of Sense8 in 2016, per the official order.

If the premise of Netflix and the Wachowskis’ upcoming Sense8 series has you confused, you’re not alone.

Netflix has added so many new original series prospects in the last few months, we’d almost forgotten the Wachowskis would follow up Jupiter Ascending with the mysterious globe-trotting Sense8, live births and all. Now, the first photos of the series have arrived, looking a bit more John Woo action-style than we’d expected.

A Four-Hour Cut of ‘Cloud Atlas’ Exists and Is Apparently Incredible

I was not a huge fan of the Wachowskis’ ‘Jupiter Ascending.’ But as I said in my review, if there was a longer version of that movie, I would totally watch it. ‘Jupiter’ is an absolute mess, but a lot of it feels messy because it’s so rushed, cramming an entire universe of mythology and dog-men who look like Channing Tatum into a little over two hours. I couldn’t say for certain why the movie is that length, but if I had to guess, I’d imagine that studio executives who invested $175 million in this sci-fi boondoggle didn’t want a three-hour epic, and kindly requested (or sternly demanded) a shorter, zippier movie. The result moves quickly at the expense of any sense of coherence.

In about four hours, I’m seeing ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ the latest film from Andy and Lana Wachowski. I’m beyond excited. I see early responses like “mad, majestic, magnificently overblown” or “legendarily awful” and I get pumped, because I know love it or hate it, I am about to see something. It certainly sounds like the Wachowskis have outdone themselves in the crazy department, which is particularly impressive since these are the Wachowskis we’re talking about, and the baseline for their movies is already pretty nutty.
