It was tempting to save this trailer for the Sense8 Christmas special for tomorrow’s MyM Advent Calendar, but it’s so damned cool we thought it deserved its own post. We’re still a little gobsmacked there’s a Sense8 Christmas special at all – is this the first Netflix drama to have one? But as co-creator Lana Wachowski explains in the accompanying video featurette, it happened because she wanted it to happen, basically. And as the captions in the trailer itself emphasise, Christmas is a time when people come together, and coming together to help each other out is pretty much at the heart of what Sense8 is all about… with a sci-fi twist. In case you haven’t seen it, it’s about eight “sensates” (see what they did there) spread across the globe, who are mentally linked and can share each other’s knowledge, thoughts and skills.
The second season proper premieres on Netflix in May.
