Lito in Sense8

There are few TV shows as unique as Netflix's Sense8. The Wachowski's sci-fi drama has defied the expectations and possibilities for international TV production, while also crafting the most diverse and inclusive cast in television history. But Sense8 has not been without its missteps, especially when the streaming service suddenly cancelled it after the action-packed and game changing Season 2 finale. But the fandom rallied together and convinced Netflix to produce a finale movie. And the twists have only continued as porn website xHamster has since offered to produce Season 3 of Sense8. But what does the cast think?

I recently had the chance to speak with actor Miguel Ángel Silvestre (aka Sense8's Lito) about his role in the upcoming third season of Netflix's Narcos. Eventually the subject of Sense8 came up, and I asked him what he thought about xHamster's proposal. He said,

I feel like, wow that's insane. That's impressive. I think Sense8 is not going to stop bringing us surprises. But the most beautiful surprise is what the fans did for us. They brought back life to Sense8 in a way that nobody has ever one before in any show. And that is remarkable. Thanks to them, Netflix gave us another opportunity.

It looks like Miguel Ángel Silvestre isn't totally ruling out xHamster's offer to produce Season 3. Lana Wachowski has been open how she's writing beyond the finale movie, so it seems like just about anything is possible in the future. With a fanbase as rabid as the Sense8 community, who calls themselves Sensies, it's entirely possible that more than one miracle could happen for the series.

The cast of Sense8 seems to truly appreciate how the fans mobilized in order to convince Netflix to produce a finale. Season 2 ended with the majority of the cluster finally in the same place, capturing the villain Whispers in an attempt to save Wolfgang. The cliffhanger was massive and exciting, and if the series ended it had the potential to ruin the first two seasons. Luckily a movie is coming, so a proper ending to the story isn't far behind.

I asked Miguel Ángel Silvestre about Sense8's sudden cancellation as well, and he told me what the news felt like for the cast. He said,

It caught us by surprise. I never would have said that was going to happen with Sense8. Because we knew that the ratings were really high. Netflix doesn't release the numbers, but you can kind of guess through Twitter. We used to be a trending topic many times. So we knew there was a huge following there. And the fans were very loyal. It caught us by surprise, and it was a huge shock. When we said goodbye at the end of the shooting of the second season it was just 'Goodbye, see you soon. See you in some months.'

It looks like the cluster has indeed become close in real life, as they've spent the past two years traveling the world and filming in very close proximity. Luckily their goodbye ended up being temporary, and the Sense8 movie will begin shooting sometime in the near future.

You can catch Miguel Ángel Silvestre in Narcos Season 3 starting on September 1st on Netflix, and the first two seasons of Sense8 are currently available for your binge watching pleasure. In the meantime, check out our fall premiere list to plan your next binge watch.
