I'm sure you guys will have the pictures of Brian, Max, Toby and Lana covered, but someone who met Lana said there's also going to be another announcement on Sunday!

I was looking for Sense8 crew (aside of Lana's wife) being there just in case they are going to surprise us and shoot something.

Well I think I have found one, but just one:

That was a beautiful half hour they gave to the fans.

... and yes I think Lana was joking about the season 3 stuff, and many people only heard what they wanted to hear.

she said something like
Quote:
I am an actor and the real Lana is sitting in a bunker writing season 3
Yes, I think she was joking there, and I will believe in season 3 if or when there is an official announcement.

Well, I only watched the first 5 minutes of it before I had to go, so I have no idea what you refer to! Sounds interesting! Time to watch it all and find out! I'll comment later.

So I watched it and it was lovely. My conclusion is it was a joke, but season 3 is definitely something that is on her mind all the time.. Well, let's see if she announces anything regarding that tomorrow.

I also noticed after the joke she made about herself writing the entire season 3, she followed it up more seriously with "we are writing the fate of Wolfgang right now".

Which contrasts with the joking part, and also points to more writers than her being involved potentially with the writing of the special.

ETA: Really hope that the wildfire smoke clears before the celebrations!!
I follow both accounts, and though I was away from twitter for the 24-28 hours that whatever happened happened, I will try to summarize. From following both accounts for some time, and spending a few hours reading tweets, tweet replies, etc., I think that yes, it turned out to be fan politics.

From what it seems (and this is confirmed imo in hindsight looking at the activity/focus of both accounts), in the beginning the fan movement was all about Sense8 everywhere (tweet about it, spam Netflix etc.). Then things ended up devolving (naturally?) into two strains of fan involvement (all with the purported goal of a season three): 1) having 'trending hashtags' or tweet topics for each day (i.e. Toby Onwumere day, Brian day, Kalagang day etc)., or 2) more focused outreach (targeting X famous person to talk about the show, etc.).

For a time, each one (Global Cluster and IAWC), although there was no clear dichotomy really) were each posting their own "daily action" campaign To-Dos. Each seemed to be supporting each other, i.e. reposting the other's action lists. It ended up being confusing for many, who saw many/different Daily Action Lists.

[From here on out it is more my own viewpoint...]

At some point in time the Global Cluster (which was more 'strategically' focused on gaining new fans to increase the chances of a S3) decided that the I Am a We Campaign was really more of a circle-jerk--urging daily tweets that were mostly tweeted to followers who were mostly other Sense8 fans. So the Global Cluster decided not to endorse/support/retweet the circle jerk stuff of I Am a We Campaign (IAWC). The IAWC campaign decided to take this is an either/or situation, instead of both/and, and got offended. Drama ensued.

That's my interpretation. Me, I'm more of a both/and kind of person, but I understand the need for focused campaigns. People are still clearly free to do what they choose to do.

I get that she was joking but I thought it was really weird how Lana just brought it up considering that they (or Brian in this case who was reading the questions) literally ignored every question pertaining to the finale and/or a third season, especially since an overwhelming amount of the facebook questions were about both either the finale or a third season. Like the first question that got posted was this:

Quote:
Isn't there some way they can do more filming on set somewhere? It's done all the time. The scenery is beautiful, but it's the actors who make this program special. I just hate to see it end!
Which Brian ignored lol, and there's no way they only answered the top comments since the top comment with 300+ likes/reactions was this:

Quote:
Can a Special Episode wrap up what 5 seasons should've been? Is there hope for a Season 3 we deserve?
So like if they weren't allowed to answer questions about it, or didn't want to, why bother even joke about it in the first place?

Like Neo, the rules don't apply to Lana. The same bunch of tweets in which Netflix announced a finale, contain Lana's letter where she calls it "another special"

Netflix might not agree, but they are going to let Lana express her thoughts anyway. Likewise, if Lana thought about joking about it during the live, that's what she's going to do.

But we'll see if they announce something today or August 8...

Can anyone provide a summary of the main news? Any revelations?

I see 'Season 3' mentioned a lot. Are they calling the special S3 now, what's the deal. Or were they joking? And definitely no JMS invovled then?

None of those things.

The season 3 thing is this:

One of the fan questions was "Is Wolfgang going to be ok?"

The actors said they don't know, it's up to Lana to answer that question.

There was a running joke that started very early during the live where Lana said this is her first time on social media (we all know she is pretty private person), and the only reason she finally appeared on this Facebook live, is to reach back to the fans and express her thank you after they rescued the show.

So, much later, when the cast asked her, as writer, to respond to the fan's question if Wolfgang will be ok, she joked that she's actually not Lana; she's an actress hired to play Lana, as the real Lana would never appear on social media. The real Lana is in a bunker writing the entire season 3 because she thinks fans will bring more fans. When she said that the cast exploded with confused faces that could be interpreted in many different ways (from "did she reveal it this early, we weren't supposed to!" to "what is she talking about, it's a joke, right?")

She then follows on more seriously, and answers the question: "We are writing the fate of Wolfgang right now."

Which contrasts with the joke, not just in tone, but also on the use of plural. "Lana is writing the entire third season" (during the joke) vs "we are writing the fate of Wolfgang right now" (during the serious part).

Nothing about JMS, but the fact she said "we", could mean he's writing too. Then again, two other writers were brought in during season 2, so who knows who is "we". (It could even be Lilly, but it's even less likely than JMS IMO.)

No big reveals. The biggest thing for me, was that Lana is part of the cast's super tight group they have formed. They referred to her as "mother" and she referred to them as "my boys". When a fan asked how often they meet when not acting (on Sense8), they (including herself) all included Lana in their examples of trying to meet as much as they can and gave examples like Lana and Riemelt meeting in Paris, or Lana meeting with Smith in London. Bae had that kind of relationship with Lana from before season 1 (she referred to her as "Mom" in interviews all the time), but I think it's only during season 2 that the others became as close with Lana.

edit: Another interesting part was that Lana referred on her own to Capheus' recast as a fortuitous thing, and how happy she is that they went from an actor who could play very well an innocent young man with a boyish quality to someone who could play very well the part of being a little more grown up and having a political career and also falling in love and being sensual with another body, how that sort of quantum identity is what she's interested in exploring, so the recast accidentally served the material in a way she couldn't have possibly imagined before it happened. The part about Capheus v2 being someone who can be "sensual with another body", can also be read as another hint that the original actor left because of the orgy scenes. But it's just speculation!

Thanks, that's what I thought. I did go back a bit looking for evidence of the 'bullying' that IAWC mentioned and didn't see it. My feeling is that it's an example of fans starting out-and succeeding-to do something out of love but then ending up with a misplaced sense of ownership. Pretty sure that the young lady behind IAWC was the one who posted a video to JMS wagging a finger at him and telling him to let the fans have hope.

The way Brian was flipping through screens on the iPad, I got the impression he might have just been doing questions randomly. Though I suspect that all that he was shown were screened questions.

Cool, Thanks! And they just mentioned that "most of the cast of Sense8" would be in the parade.
