Sense8 Season 2: air date, Christmas special and more

Find out what’s going on with Sense8 Season 2

It’s now been about a year and a half since Sense8 Season 1 premiered, so we’re hankering for some new episodes. There’s not too long to wait now though, as Netflix has recently announced that Season 2 will be landing on the streaming site on 5 May 2017.

But Netflix obviously presumed we’d be desperate by then, seeing as they are also offering up a two-hour Christmas Special to hold us over, which will be released on 23 December.

You can read the official, rather ambiguous synopsis for the Christmas Special here:

The journey continues as these eight singular hearts and minds weave in and out of each other’s lives finding deeper connections, learning darker, more desperate secrets about one another and struggling to identify with more than just oneself.

Sense8 Season 2 Doona Bae, Max Riemelt, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, Jamie Clayton, Toby Onwumere, Tuppence Middleton, Brian J Smith, Daryl Hannah, Naveen Andrews and Terrence Mann. Sense8 was created by Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J Michael Straczynski. Lana Wachowski, Straczynski and Grant Hill are the show’s executive producers.
