Netflix Shares Sense8 Christmas Special Details & Season 2 Premiere Date

sense8-christmas-specialChristmas is arriving two days earlier this year thanks to the Wachowskis. Channeling their inner Santas, the duo have given fans the best gift ever.

Season 2 of the sci-fi drama doesn’t kick off until mid 2017, but the Wachowskis are giving an early preview with their holiday-themed two-hour special airing on Netflix. Sense8: A Christmas Special will debut Dec. 23 at 3:01 a.m. EST. Check out the official synopsis below.

“Picking up where season one left off, Capheus (Toby Onwumere), Kala (Tina Desai), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Nomi (Jamie Clayton), Riley (Tuppence Middleton) , Sun (Doona Bae), Will (Brian J. Wright) and Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) come together both physically and mentally, plunged into the middle of each other’s tragedies and triumphs. On the run from Whispers (Terrence Mann), and forced to question their very identity, it’s a matter of survival as the Sensates must find a way to live with, understand and protect one another against all odds.”

A few months after, Season 2 officially begins on May 5, 2017 with 10 brand new episodes. I can’t wait. If you still haven’t checked out the first season, you have plenty of time to binge-watch them before Sense8 returns.
