After nearly two years off the air (700 days!), Sense8 is back with 10 all new episodes beginning Friday, May 5 at 12:01 AM PT. Like the first season, season two of Sense8 consists of 12 episodes - the first 2 episodes are already available in the form of a two-hour Christmas special.
This season has undergone some creative changes, such as Lilly Wachowski stepping down as writer/director/co-showrunner for personal reasons (she will rejoin the show next season) and Aml Ameen (Capheus) being recast with Toby Onwumere due to creative differences, but the reviews are better than ever so it looks like the show hasn't skipped a beat.
Please spoiler tag discussion for the first two weeks, until May 19. Also be sure to label which episode(s) you're discussing.
e.g. Ep 4: omg I saw Lito's dick!
Season 2 Official Trailer
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.
