Sense8 won’t air season 2 until May 2017, but we get a 2 hour Christmas special to hold us over. The special will air on Netflix beginning on December 23.
I thought season 1 of Sense8 was fascinating. I’ve waited eagerly for a return to this strange interconnected world and its 8 sensate characters.
Lana Wachowski explains why she wanted to do a holiday special.
The original cast remains intact, except that Capheus will now be played by Toby Onwumere instead of Aml Ameen. Written by J. Michael Straczynski, Lana Wachowski, and Lilly Wachowski and directed by Lana Wachowski, Sense8 takes us into a world where mentally connected people work together against an evil power and its leader Whispers (Terrence Mann).
If you need a quick refresher, my review of season 1 can help you recall the characters and the basics of the story.
Enjoy the preview!
