Netlix has unveiled the first full official trailer for Sense8‘s second season.
The trailer offers up plenty of intriguing footage as the sensates uncover more about their abilities and the BPO, the mysterious organisation that’s after them. The plot looks to be picking up momentum now, with our brain-connected group having to work together to make a stand against those – particularly Whispers (Terrence Mann) – that want them and others like them destroyed. As is teased: war is around the corner.
The Matrix filmmakers and siblings Lana Wachowski & Lilly Wachowski created Sense8 alongside J. Michael Straczynski. Lana will be taking time off for season 2, leaving Lana as the sole director and lead creative on the entire season.
All of Sense8 season 2 will hit Netflix on May 5. Be sure to scroll down the page to check out the season’s official poster.
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.
