Los Angeles: Sci-fi drama series "Sense8", starring Indian actress Tina Desai, has been renewed for a second season by Netflix.
The streaming service made the announcement via Twitter. Netflix also included a special video for fans of the show which featured the "Sense8" cast members celebrating the show's first birthday and announcing its second season, reported Ace Showbiz.
"Birthdays are just the beginning. #sense8 is reborn," Netflix tweeted. The science fiction show follows eight strangers around the world who are connected by shared visions.
As each individual is from a different culture around the world, the show explores such topics as religion, politics and gender identity. Andy and Lana Wachowski and J Michael Straczynski created, wrote and executively produced the show.
"Sense8" also stars Aml Ameen, Bae Doona, Jamie Clayton, Tuppence Middleton, Max Riemelt, Miguel Angel Silvestre and Brian J Smith.
Many of the actors appeared on Netflix's video on Twitter and, much like the series, appeared to be all over the world. South Korean actress Doona was filmed in Paris, with the Eiffel Tower in the back of the shot.
"Sense8" was released on June 5 this year for immediate streaming and has already proved hugely successful. It was the first Netflix show to go to San Diego's Comic-Con last month.
According to reports, Netflix also considered the impact the show had on social media as fans are particularly vocal about their love of the show.
