'Sense8' gives sneak peek of finale special

MANILA, Philippines — They're back! 
In a series of tweets on Sunday, "Sense8" thrilled fans and offered a first look at what to expect in its finale special.
And spoiler alert, it's going to be incredible, "Sense8" said, with more love, action, explosions and answers to some loose ends.
"We’ve got more love to go around, action, explosions, the Eiffel Tower, and answers to all of your questions - Will Wolfgang get rescued? Can Whispers just GTFO already? Will Lito lose another flip flop??"
The one and a half minute sneak peek opens with Max Riemelt, who portrays sensate Wolfgang Bogdanow in the series, welcoming fans to the "Sense8 lab." Season 2 ended with Wolfgang's fate unknown. 
"I'm proud to be part of this and happy that we can give them an end that will satisfy them," Riemelt said as other cast members talk about all the love they got during the six-week finale shoot.
The Emmy-nominated show was canceled by Netflix this year after two seasons over small viewership and costly production. Filming of the show spanned 16 cities and 13 countries.
It, however, announced its return in 2018 for a two-hour finale to bring much-needed closure to fans who flooded social media with #RenewSense8 and #BringBackSense8 requests.
"Sense8" tells the story of eight people who gained sudden telepathic and astral projection abilities. They later discover that they belong to a secret and persecuted species of humans called homo sensoriums or sensates. The show is hailed for its original storytelling and embrace of diversity and inclusivity.
Here's a first look at the finale special:
Meanwhile, "Sense8" writer Aleksandar Hemon hinted of a new project they are developing in a piece he wrote for The New Yorker.
"Then, within a few weeks of the release of the second season, 'Sense8' was cancelled. This led to some soul-searching and operational considerations, whereupon we decided to invest the time we would have spent on 'Sense8' into developing a New Project, whose bits and pieces had been spinning around the Pit for a while."
