Netflix’s Sense8 saying a premature goodbye hurts, but the streaming service decision to grant a finale certainly helps. Before we learn the sensates’ fate in 2018, check out a new clip previewing the cast’s farewell, which may or may not reveal a surprising twist.
The announcement of a Sense8 finale offered some relief from the sting of cancellation, but surely a full third season is off the table, right? Perhaps not, as porn website xHamster is tossing its hat (and presumably other clothing) into the ring to host a third season of the Netflix drama.
It had seemed especially cruel of Netflix to bail on Sense8 without some chance at goodbye, but fans were overjoyed to find their renewal efforts had actually earned the globe-trotting sci-fi drama another episode. Now, international cast and crew thank fans with an extensive new “birthday” video, offering a scant update in the process.
It’s that time of the year again when we begin to take stock of the best TV of the year and put our heads together to predict who will take home the gold come awards night. On Thursday, the TV Academy will announce their selections for the 2017 Emmy Awards. We already know the usual suspects will pop up, from shoo-in Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Modern Family and House of Cards, but what about the new series and the underdogs?
In the Golden Age of television — or Peak TV, or “oh god, please stop, I have enough to watch already” — shows aren’t just more cinematic, they’re offering us more of everything. That includes more sex scenes, which have become increasingly prevalent, revealing, daring and yes, even artful, reinforcing the notion that TV has become more like film. We recently chose the 25 best movie sex scenes of the last 25 years, and with the smaller screen’s growing resemblance to its big screen brethren, we thought it only right to do the same for television. We also assumed that making a list of the 25 best TV sex scenes of the last 20 years would be far easier and much less surprising. Spoiler alert: We were wrong.
Sense8 was easily Netflix’s harshest cancellation to date; not from a financial standpoint, but for cutting the story short (and on the first day of Pride, at that). No more, as Lana Wachowski confirms fans have succeeded in resurrecting Sense8 for a new special in 2018!
