Sense8: A Christmas Special Trailer Promises a Heady, Hellish Holiday

Sense8 has returned to wish you a merry Christmas… and a “happy f–ing new year.”

Netflix on Friday released the official trailer for the sci-fi drama’s upcoming two-hour holiday special, which hits the streaming service (appropriately) on Dec. 23.

As you might expect from a Christmas event produced by the Wachowski siblings, it doesn’t take long for the joy of the season to devolve into gun-shooting, face-bashing madness. (We didn’t spot any festive hot tub orgies in this trailer, but we wouldn’t put anything past Sense8 at this point.)

And remember: Sense8’s 10-episode second season doesn’t hit Netflix until May 5, 2017, so enjoy this — it’s going to have to last you a while.

    What really sort of worries me is that the group shot had everyone looking very worried at each other and last year they weren’t even that panicked. I assume Will is going to be in trouble most of the season.

    I have been waiting (impatiently!) so long for this to come back!

    So exciting! I can’t wait. Netflix has been doing Christmas specials of their programs every year. First, BoJack Horseman (great) then Marco Polo (boo) now Sense8 (yay).

    So excited!! I didn’t know this was coming so it really perks up my otherwise crummy day.

    Most anticipated Christmas Special for me! Can’t wait!

    It feels like forever since the first season. So glad they’ve done this special to hold us until May. It looks great, and I cannot wait to see all the characters again. Just one more week!

    (And then the Doctor Who special just two days later… another series where there’s been a looong wait for the new season. Also get the annual marathon beforehand.)

    Possibly the best series running. Certainly tied with the top 3.
