As it has been reported around the fandom,

e.g.
http://ww-n-double-d.tumblr.com/post...-something-for
http://ww-n-double-d.tumblr.com/post...ine-on-netflix

The "Finale coming in 2018" bit on: https://www.netflix.com/sense8 has disappeared for many people, including me.

For me it just says "Watch Season 2 Now on Netflix".

As it has been speculated it's possible that a trailer with a real release date is being prepared.

Billelo interview: http://statusmagonline.com/sense8s-v...ur-pillowtalk/

Quote:
From all the roles that you’ve gotten, what makes playing Lila Facchini different for you?

Lila is my first villain. I’ve never imagined myself playing one and having so much fun with it! I find villains very similar to young kids being hurt and becoming evil, hungry for revenge. Motivations were unexplored, but once found I had a great time in Lila’s body.

What do you love about playing Lila?

The sexy part. Oh my god, I feel so different that way.

What do you love the most about being a part of Sense8?

Meeting these wonderful human beings, Lana Wachowski will always be in my heart and thoughts on other sets and most importantly in life. I learned so much from her and the way she works, it won’t leave easily.

What are your thoughts about Lila and Wolfgang’s dynamic?

“You can’t always get what you want” dynamic! If you think about it it happens a lot in real life, you get obsessed with people and things you can’t have.

How did you feel when they cancelled the show?

We were all devastated. It felt wrong, unjustified and cruel. Fans were so determined and loud that thanks to them something you want to forget turned out to be spectacular and literally unforgettable.

Are you coming back on the grand finale this 2018? What can we expect from the show and Lila?

I am! Lila is going to be part of this episode and in Italy too, in her full bloody, sexy, bitchy, smart way. And in Italy, I loved seeing Lana and the crew in my country for a while. It was the warmest welcoming ever over this shoot. Fans were following Sense8 everywhere in Italy, from early in the morning till late at night.

Will we know more about Lila’s cluster in the finale?

You’ll know more about Lila and more of her story. As you know, one of the show’s last locations was Napoli. It’s an explosive finale!

Malerba is interviewed by the Italian fan community, 1h video: https://www.facebook.com/andrea.rocc...5155610868969/

Transcript of some of the more important parts: http://newsflix.altervista.org/sense...o-della-serie/

Select translations:

On the two-hour special

Quote:
"We shot in four European countries in a very short time, about six weeks. The script was ready only in August and at the end of September we already had to start filming. We chose Europe because we could not travel the world in such a short time, not to mention the budget. We left Berlin, then Paris and Brussels, before coming to Italy. In the end we had to go back to Berlin to finish those scenes that we could not shoot at the beginning, due to the absence of some actors. We had to reduce everything to two hours, so it's like a movie instead of a 10-episode season. "
On the date of the two-hour episode

Quote:
"Initially, Lana wanted to get him out on Valentine's Day, for the obvious significance of the anniversary, but ending the shoot on November 12th, it was unthinkable to release it in February. So now we are looking for a new date. The delivery of the post-production is by the end of March, so from there onwards every day is the good one. It will be a symbolic date or one that is good for Netflix, based on the weekly slots it has available. Indicatively end of April. You of Sense8 Italy have hypothesized May 17, the World Day Against Homophobia, Bifobia and Transphobia. It would be the perfect date for Sense8, but it must be good for all parties."
On the possibilities of renewal

Quote:
"Officially, what will arrive in spring is the final episode, we must take it as such. Season 3 had been canceled, but we then got a final. Not to be negative, but I want to clarify: the final two-hour episode for us was the closure. Then everything is possible and we would like it. If then it is marketing, I can not know, for us it is a final ending of the events of these first two seasons, then we do not know. It depends on Netflix, on contracts with actors ... There are so many things to consider.

I think we have to see how this final episode goes and then we'll see. Netflix does not earn on the series, but on subscriptions. You will have to watch it on Netflix, sign up for the special. Netflix earns almost exclusively thanks to subscriptions, look how many new members are there after the release of a series or film and this counts for renewal. Therefore we must register and see it. As long as Netflix does not see if it's liked and is in line with its other top series we can not know what can happen.

The streaming colossus has grown a lot more than when we started Sense8 and made the evaluations based on the many original products that it has produced."
On if we'll see elements from the initial 5 season arc, and why they agreed on a finale

Quote:
"However, expect a great finale! The stories of the first two seasons are over, but from there you can start again to make others, with new adventures, with the same actors and introducing new ones.

Initially there were 5 five seasons, making this final we included scenes and stories that would have happened in other seasons, others we had to chop ... but then you can open a new cycle with new stories and new 'bad guys'.
We have worked on it as a final, not because we do not hope to go on, but because we have been told "Season 3 is canceled, make two hours of final".

We had to hurry up the special because the cast options expire in March, so time was running out. In case you decide to move on, Lana has 600 pages to write and we must find the contractual agreements with the cast. Lana would do it more than willingly, with the cast a solution would be found. However, I would like to point out that there is no Netflix against Lana, it is simply business. It works like this."
On the concept of Sense8

Quote:
"There was a 10-page Sense8 concept written by Wachowski. An Indian company had it in hand and then made an agreement with Netflix. This company was acquired by Netflix and then Sense8 passed onto the table of the streaming company. The idea had existed for about ten years, but once under Netflix they put down the real story with the various characters. "
There's a bit more if you visit the link.

Just to clarify, but would the options expiring in March have to do with the cast options for the special? Otherwise I'm just confused unless something was just lost in translation

I would guess for the special.

But it's funny that on March 2017 Deadline wrote that the cast were signing new contracts. So if they signed 1 year long ones, they would be ending in March 2018..

I don't know if Netflix could have somehow salvaged the season 3 contracts (for those that had signed for season 3 anyway, which according to the Italian fan community is said to be 6 out of the 8) despite the show being canceled, and despite the special not being a new season. I would guess no.

So I'm going to go with that he must mean the contracts for the special.

edit: I mean by March 2018 they wouldn't have finished (or maybe even started!) filming of season 3, so yeah, I don't think it makes sense. He must mean the contracts for the special.

We can see a glimpse of the episode and also we can confirm the special is still being considered as the 12th episode of Season 2 and that Unpronounceable Productions is still the name of the Wachowskis & Straczynski's production company.

ADR (additional dialogue recording) for #Sense8. One by one, from around the globe, all the cast are adding the finishing touches to what is one helluva show stopper of an episode!!! We upload these pictures not to tease you, but to let you know how unbelievably incredible it looks, how moving & thought provoking it is, how proud we are of it and how pleased you're going to be with it!!!! �� Such a unique experience. #sense8forever ��⚡️��#nomanita @Sense8 #chicago #recordingstudio
edit In Silvestre's video there's a 2h 11m timer running on top. If that means that scene takes place 2h and 11m in the episode or not, dunno, but I wouldn't be surprised if the episode ends up closer to 2h 30m than 2h.

edit Italians say the editing has finished and the length is about 2h: https://www.facebook.com/Sense8Itali...7103214796030/

We'll see, I suppose.

- Interview with Silvestre but barely mentions Sense8: https://entertainment.inquirer.net/2...iving-extremes

- On imdb Alexander Yassin has been added, and he plays "Dignitary". Probably an extremely minor role (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under-five ) as he has similarly minor roles in other Wachowski productions, Speed Racer, Ninja Assassin, Cloud Atlas.

Mostly sourced from: https://twitter.com/sense8dailys and: https://twitter.com/tiredSelma

Quote:
"We will know what happened to Wolfgang's mother in the special episode" - Max Riemelt #Sense8Con
Yes!

Quote:
"The hardest scene to shoot for the special was an emotional one" - Max Riemelt #Sense8con #sense8con

Max Riemelt favourite scene with Max the dancing one but also liked the soccer & action scenes. #Sense8Con

Also hard scene: backyard fight scene, he had 2 do it 20 times, he broke a stuntman nose, it was -12C, he fell sick #Sense8Con

"I'm sorry for Lana who invested so much in this show. the impact of sense8 is in Wolfgang but also in the different characters" - Max Riemelt at #Sense8Con in Paris

"Sense8 will still be young when we are old" Lana Wachowski to Max Riemelt #Sense8con

Lana said to Max with tears in her eyes “this [show] will still be young when we’re old”

Him and Tina went through extreme situations.They had serious talks about issues such as "being naked in front of the camera" as Tina was troubled by that. He likes her family & he considers her a friend & he's glad he knows her and she part of his life���� #Sense8Con MaxR Panel

He gets recognized by the tourists and not the Germans bc they don’t really watch Netflix �� #Sense8Con
Quote:
At the panel, Brian said that there was a deleted scene from 1x11 with him on the plane and Wolfgang in his car where they talk about how dumb this thing they're both doing is. Will's line about the 9 mm under his arm is actually him quoting Wolfgang. #Sense8Con

" Any deleted scenes you thought should have made it ? " Brian : " yes a wolfgang/will scene in the s1 finale where they’re both in the plane/car and they talk about how stupid they are for going in without plan "

He also talked about how awkward it was to film the first kiss with Riley (or rather, when Diego walks in) because he had no idea how that all worked or how it was gonna look. #Sense8Con

"when I received the email from Lana saying the show was cancelled, I was the first to start the mouvement, even I got in a little trouble ��" - Brian at #Sense8Con in Paris

"For me the craziest thing was Lana strength and dedication to bring the fans the special episode. She worked so hard and I think it will be reflected. She put all she had into it." Brian at #Sense8Con in Paris

One of the hardest scene to shoot was the night shooting in front of the Night Watch painting. Krum had a 5 pg monologue and the night before Lana made changes. And Brian felt so sorry for the actor coz the actor was so tense and that made him tense. #Sense8Con

But 2 hours later they were drunk and like “I love you so much” �� ���� #Sense8con
Quote:
I asked my question to Jamie about the picture we saw of the girls in the Christmas special and she said it was cut and they didn’t even get to film it and since there are sooo many scenes get cut so she doesn’t remember what it was about !

"the speech at Nomi's Sister's wedding was hard & emotional to film because there were a lot of people in the room that we did not know" - Jamie #Sense8Con

"don't know anything about season 3 but we really hope that people like and watch the new episode" - Jamie at #Sense8Con

The swimming pool scene was so difficult because it was Lana's story. It was really upsetting for her and Lana both to repeat that so many times. But she's proud of it and believes it's become Iconic. #Sense8Con

The IamAWe Campaign asked, what is going to work to possibly get a S3. Jamie says she doesn't want to break anyone's hearts but Lana is taking time off & the actors have to work, and the more time that passes the less likely it will be. #Sense8Con
Quote:
About the trailer they are going to show #Sense8Con : Lana gave it to zarata events and Netflix is really not happy. So if even one picture of it goes on the internet Lana is going to be in *huge* trouble. Sorry for you guys And it's gonna be a different one from Italy
edit https://twitter.com/xtoneofsurprise

Quote:
There were some technological difficulties, so we got to see the trailer twice! #Sense8Con

It was basically a 5 min trailer and 5 mins of behind the scenss stuff. Everyone got emotional. The cast were all hugging each other afterwards. #Sense8Con

The cast doesn't know exactly when the special will be released, but Brian and Max M said late spring/early summer. #Sense8Con
Quote:
You guys.... wow. Dear Kalagang fans all I can say is that you don’t have anything to worry about.
edit Apparently people are not allowed to talk about the content of the trailer or Lana and her team will get in trouble. https://twitter.com/fantasyeventsit/...14542252146689 https://twitter.com/sense8_fan/statu...18986075308032 https://twitter.com/AnnaPernigo23/st...07640281763840

Which, you know, it's fine to ask from the audience.. as long as you make them sign NDAs. Without signing, you should be allowed to say whatever you want..

French press covering the event: http://www.leparisien.fr/culture-loi...18-7590681.php

(Translation: )

Quote:
A few hundred diehards, who do not recover from the end programmed by Netflix of "Sense8", were able to meet the actors of the series.

It's like the G20 series. Here, we speak German, English, Spanish, Dutch and even Norwegian. Some arrived by plane from Dubai, Canada, the United States and Australia, only to meet the actors of " Sense8 ", gathered at Novotel Paris Est, Bagnolet (Seine-Saint-Denis) this weekend. Because if Netflix stopped the series phenomenon at the end of season 2, last spring, there is a community of fans ultra-attached to the lives of eight heroes spread around the world, but mentally connected.

No news to report, just Hannah talking about how Lana's directing influenced her style as director in her upcoming "not a real movie", Paradox: http://www.indiewire.com/2018/03/dar...18-1201939587/

Quote:
Who have been your directing mentors?

I’ve been really, really fortunate to work with some of the greatest directors of all time, including my last director, Lana Wachowski [on “Sense8”]. One of the things that’s so great about Lana is she keeps her input flowing throughout the scene. Like she’ll talk during scenes or stand behind the cameraman and walk with him like they’re one body, and she is constantly taking inspiration from whatever’s happening in the moment and incorporating it into the scenes. So I just did all of those things; but unfortunately she has a much bigger budget and more professional set-up, so she can remove her voice from scenes a lot easier than I can [laughs]. That caused me some problems in the end.
And how Netflix ended up acquiring it:

Quote:
How did Netflix get involved? It’s such a massive corporate entity, and everything they put out feels like the opposite of a home movie.

Completely. That was a total surprise. I had been working with Netflix for the last three years doing “Sense8.” On the last day, one of the executives who’s in charge of our show at Netflix said, “I would love to see the film you’re working on,” because they knew that I went straight from filming “Sense8” to shooting this movie. And I’m like, “Oh my God, it’s totally not for you guys, it’s not that kind of thing, but I’m happy to show it to you.” So we went over there and they just thought it was really fun. They didn’t know what to expect, and I think they just enjoyed themselves. They told me they felt like they were floating after they saw it; they didn’t want to go back to work [laughs]. Then they made an offer right away. Most of their films are bonafide productions. So this is [laughs] very different. And I think that’s cool because if Netflix can show little personal creative expressions as well as big studio things, then that would open up maybe a new route for independent filmmaking to get some exposure.

Hannah again: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...b0decad04664a3

Quote:
“I think Lana did an incredible job writing this and does give some closure to some of the storylines and keeps the message and connectivity in there,” Hannah told HuffPost.
Quote:
“I think it’s disappointing to everybody, even to us, because the cast and the crew were so tight and just loved each other and the whole experience so much. It was a huge, huge undertaking for Lana and for Netflix,” Hannah said. “We had to shoot in 16 different cities ... and countries — Africa, India, everywhere all over the world. I think it was a great experience and it would have been great if would have gone on longer. But it had its moment.”

More Hannah: https://www.washingtonpost.com/enter...1e4_story.html

Quote:
Hannah picked up a number of directing tips while working with Lana Wachowski on “Sense8,” in which she plays a mother figure to the show’s main characters, a group of eight psychics.

“We had a cameraman on ‘Sense8’ who operated the steadicam and shot everything,” Hannah said. “Lana would just attach herself to him and use and move him around. That’s sort of what I ended up doing with C.K. [Adam Vollick, the film’s cinematographer] when he was shooting.”


Hannah also learned from Wachowski that calling out directions in the middle of the scene meant she could get more in-the-moment responses from the actors. “I’ve never seen a director do that before. She just tells you to do this or look that way. So, I started doing that, which caused me a lot of problems because I don’t have the technical crew that she had to clean her stuff up,” she said and laughed. Maybe next time around.
edit Just checked the credits of Hannah's movie, Paradox.

Additional VFX are provided by Kinowerks and there's a "Love to Lana Wachowski & Karin Winslow & Aimee Allegretti" credit.
