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!

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.

What happened with the other Capheus? Why did they replace him?

Also, looking forward to this. S1 was great.

I had heard he wasn't comfortable with the sex scenes. Don't know if that's fact or just a rumor.

Old Capheus had a falling out with the Wachowskis.

I knew that the Christmas special was basically just the first two episodes of season 2, so I waited until the rest of the season was about to drop before finally jumping in.

I really liked it. It is a bit disjointed and indulgent, but at this point we all know that that's a feature of this series - not a bug. :)

As a sci-fi thriller blended with a series of unique personal dramas, Sense8 has grown into the show we were promised in 2015. It’s not flawless, and its love of atmospheric montages will not be to everyone’s taste. But if you were even slightly taken in by season 1, the new season is well worth the wait.

honestly the orgy scenes make me super uncomfortable.
If I shared a brain with 7 other people I'd probably be trying to avoid their mental gangbangs, or at least be trying to pay as little attention to them as possible.



Thats actually a question I have that I can't determine...
Do the sensates actually hallucinate the presence of the other sensates when they are visiting? Or is that just for the audience and they are only like thoughts in their head?

I was always under the impression that they actually see each other.

After watching the first episode, I love the concept of the show and where it might go, I like the money thrown on screen (mostly apparent with the diverse locations), but I have to say--the writing is painfully bad. Does that improve over time?

The early episodes are a little rough because of all the setup they have to do. If the show hasn't won you over by the end of episode 4, move on.

Yes. I've had 3 friends all give up after the first but I encouraged them to give it another try. They all said the same thing. By #4, they were hooked.

The first few episodes are the weakest but honestly, no. It's earnest to a fault. It kinda loops back around though since the show is so unrelentingly positive that you can't help but get swept up by it.

The perfect antidote to today's cynical world.

This show is bursting with fucking hope. It's great. It took me 5 episodes to really warm up to it, but by the end I was on board.

Then I re-watched the entire first season recently and loved it.

The worst part of the show is probably the plot - I stay for the characters. I do miss OG Capheus, but I like the new guy too - the old one had a bit more of a boyish charm.

In this day and age, it's exactly why I love the show. It wears its heart on its sleeve, reminds you that humanity isn't always so bad.

Super excited to see more of Wolfgang and Kala, really loved their scenes together.

Also I still watch the "Whats going on" scene from time to time, really enjoyed it.

Edit: Here's the scene. Doesn't really contain spoilers I don't think, but don't click it unless you've already watched season 1.
