‘Sense8’ Season 2 Air Date, News, Spoilers & Update: Aml Ameen Replaced, Series Returns on January?
After numerous cancellation rumors, the anticipated comeback of the science fiction drama web on Netflix, "Sense8" is finally confirmed and is said to be returning on January without Aml Ameen. According to Deadline, Ameen is set to be replaced by Toby Onwumere because of the British actor's abrupt exit from his role in the first season.
Initial sources indicate that Ameen's exit was murky because it had to do with his conflicted relationship with "Sense8's" co-creator/executive producer/ director Lana Wachowski. Incidents from Season 2 table read in Berlin and filming in India exacerbated the situation which pushed Ameen to leave. Dissimilarities in creativity were also cited as one of the contributing factors in the actor's departure.
