The Wachowskis have quietly been putting together one heck of an ambitious sci-fi series over on Netflix, and now Sense8 is getting ready to return for its second season.
Lana and Lilly Wachowskis (The Matrix), along with producer J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5), have conceived a globe-trotting sci-fi project that turned into a solid creative hit once its first season debuted. The drama focuses on eight people connected by a shared vision, which launches them on a dangerous journey full of secret organizations and dark secrets. Season 2 premieres on May 5, and in the meantime, we have a brand-new trailer setting up the action.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 organization searching for their cluster and others like them, and will work to protect themselves from this organization that is out to hunt and kill them.
