Sense8 Season 2 & Christmas Special Premiere Dates Announced
Sense8, the unconventional Netflix original that travels the globe announced that it would be getting a Christmas special followed by a 2nd season in 2017.
The 2-hour Christmas special premiered at the São Paulo Comic Con Experience on December 3rd before the wide release date on December 23rd. The description of the special is fairly generic not giving much away.
“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.”
Season 2 will return without season 1 writer/director Lilly Wachowski who is reportedly stepping away for some personal time following coming out as transgender in March. Lana Wachowski who will be working without her sibling on a project for the first time will be joined by season 1 co-creator and writer J. Michael Straczynski.
The season 2 cast will remain the same except for Nairobi bus driver Capheus originally played by Aml Ameen who left the show citing creative differences. He will be replaced by Toby Onwumere.
Sense8 season 2 will premiere on May 5th, 2017 with 10 new episodes.
