2015 may not be that long ago, but the Netflix we know today was very different 2 years ago. ‘Netflix Originals’ was starting to take its first steps and a little unknown sci-fi series called Sense8 was launched. Lily and Lana Wachowski created a sci-fi show that comfortably played outside the box of what we call traditional Sci-fi. Throwing in plenty of drama, action, mystery, thriller, romance even sexuality, LGBT issues, they weren’t scared to experiment. Thanks to that we got something refreshing, curious and one the best underrated sci-fi shows and after an intriguing Christmas Special, season 2 is about to launch.
Set to launch globally on Friday, Netflix has sent us one final trailer, from season two which reveals more about the eight discovering the existence of other Sensates within clusters just like them. Will they learn to coexist or will it all come to a head? he Sensates is done playing it safe. See how they overcome this battle in the Sense8 Season 2 Cluster Thematic Trailer
From renowned creative geniuses Lana Wachowski, Grant Hill (The Matrix, Cloud Atlas) and J. Michael Straczynski (Clint Eastwood’s Changeling, World War Z), Sense8 is centered around eight characters, from different parts of the world, who experience a violent vision, and soon find themselves mentally connected by the experience. They become connected, able to see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, with access to each other’s deepest secrets. Not only must the eight adapt to this new ability and to each other, they must figure out why their lives are now in jeopardy. In Season 2, dark forces continue to track the cluster of eight connected characters. The sensates will learn more about BPO, the secret organisation searching for their cluster and others like them, and will work to protect themselves from this organisation that is out to hunt and kill them.
The second season of Sense8 launches globally on Netflix on Friday, May 5.
