“Rembrandt. His name is synonymous with masterpiece, and this is arguably one of his greatest paintings. An iconic work of individuals setting aside their differences for a common good. But what we see is not what people saw hundreds of years ago. How we see changes, because our senses are evolving.”
And so begins the Season 2 trailer for Sense8, Netflix’s sci-fi drama series from Lana Wachowski, Grant Hill and J. Michael Straczynski. Sense8 revolves 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 one another 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 one another, 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 group that is out to hunt and kill them. The new key art for Season 2 with the tagline “Survive Together” reflects their connection and bond with one another.
